Chuck Hagel

Senators are threatening to put President Obama's picks for Defense Secretary and CIA Director on hold until they get the answers they want.

FOX News Radio's Jill Nado reports from Washington:

Unless he gets more answers on the attack in Benghazi, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina is threatening to stall the nominations of Chuck Hagel as Defense Secretary and John Brennan as head of the CIA.

(Sen. Graham) "This is a complete system failure, and I'm going to get to the bottom of it."

...Graham on CBS's "Face the Nation."  Other Republicans, like Jim Risch of Idaho, have expressed similar concerns.

The White House has said it's cooperating as much as possible.  Four Americans were killed at the U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi in September of last year.
