Senator vows to delay Obama's nominees over Libya

Senator vows to delay Obama's nominees over Libya

A leading Republican senator is threatening to hold up Senate confirmation of President Barack Obama's nominees to lead the Defense Department and the CIA until the White House provides more answers about the deadly Sept. 11 attack against a U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya.

Sen. Lindsey Graham is angered by what he calls White House "stonewalling" about the attack that killed four Americans, including the ambassador.

Graham tells CBS he'll hold up Senate action on the nominations of Chuck Hagel as defense secretary and John Brennan as CIA director until he gets what he wants.
