How will hearing on US Consulate attack in Benghazi shape presidential race? Lenny McAllister and Roland Martin weigh in

In just a few hours, the House Oversight Committee will hold a hearing today publicly examining the September 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

The Obama administration had labeled the attack a result of protests in reaction to an amateur anti-Islam film trailer on the Internet following the attack. But now, two State Department officials are contradicting the administration’s statements and saying that there never was a protest before it happened.

Republican Strategist Lenny McAllister and CNN Political Analyst Roland Martin join John Berman on “Early Start” this morning with more on the investigation into the Libya attack and how it could shape the presidential race.
