Washington: The US has released emails exchanged between the various wings of the Obama administration about Benghazi terrorist attack last September that left three American nationals, including its ambassador to Libya, dead.

The release of emails, running into 100 pages is seen as an effort by the White House that it is not hiding anything on Benghazi, as being alleged by opposition Republican lawmakers.

According to Obama administration officials, these e-mails demonstrate that the process of developing the so-called talking points was not focused on politics but rather on events.

These emails reveal that the State Department repeatedly expressed concerns over various revisions of the talking point, which have now become "political flashpoint" in a long-running battle between the Obama administration and Republicans.

Meanwhile in a letter to the Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, Congressman Howard P "Buck" McKeon, Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, requested additional information related to the Benghazi attack. "Questions still remain regarding orders issued to a site security team that was in-country," he said.
