WASHINGTON - The White House's release of nearly 100 pages of emails and notes about the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, has failed to satisfy congressional Republicans demanding more information.

A spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner says that Republicans hoped the limited release of documents was a sign of more to come.

House Armed Services Committee Chairman Howard "Buck" McKeon sent a letter to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel asking for more information on military orders given around Sept. 11, 2012, when the attack occurred, and what aircraft were in the region.

Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz told reporters all unclassified documents should be released.

Four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, were killed when militants attacked the U.S. installation in twin nighttime assaults.
