WASHINGTON (AP) - One of Alabama's members of Congress, Martha Roby (R-Montgomery), was named to the House Select Committee on Benghazi on Friday.

House Speaker John Boehner is putting together the special committee that will investigate the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, while Democrats debate whether they want to participate.

Boehner named the six Republicans who will serve on the panel chaired by South Carolina Republican Trey Gowdy. They are Susan Brooks of Indiana, Jim Jordan of Ohio, Mike Pompeo of Kansas, Martha Roby of Alabama, Peter Roskam of Illinois and Lynn Westmoreland of Georgia.

Democrats aren't sure they want to be part of a probe that House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi calls a "political stunt.
