WASHINGTON (AP) - The Republican chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is subpoenaing Secretary of State John Kerry to testify this month on the deadly 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya.

Rep. Darrell Issa of California wants Kerry to appear before the panel on May 21 about why emails released this week by a conservative watchdog were omitted from previous administration submissions to Congress.

The email from deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes shows that within days of the attack the White House embraced talking points for U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice that blamed the turmoil that erupted in North African and Middle East cities in September 2012 on an anti-Islamic video.

U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans died in the attack.
