A year and a half after the deadly terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi, House Republicans have launched a new site as a portal for information about the investigation.

“The terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 was a sobering reminder of the virulent and dangerous threats facing the United States, its interests, and its partners,” the page on GOP.gov says.

“Shortly after the attack, House Republicans asked the Obama administration to explain to the American people the Administration’s actions leading up to and during the attack itself, as well as the fact that publicly-available information consistently contradicted Administration accounts describing the cause and nature of the attack. Our fight for answers and justice continues today,” it continues.

“For over a year now, House Committees have engaged in serious, deliberate, and painstaking oversight investigations of what led up to this tragic event, what happened that night, and why the White House still refuses to tell the whole truth. All of the unclassified information and findings from this ongoing investigation can be found on this website.”

The House Republican Conference said they want the site to be a “one-stop shop” for information about the attacks.

It includes the interim report from five House committees issued last April, as well as all of the individual reports and hearing transcripts from the Armed Services, Foreign Affairs, Oversight and Government Reform, and Intelligence committees.

Documents posted on the site include the talking points emails and correspondence between Congress and the departments of Defense and State.

It also includes January’s Senate Intelligence report on the attacks and the findings of the State Department’s Accountability Review Board.

This wouldn't be necessary if we had a media worthy of the label of the "4th estate."
