WASHINGTON (AP) - The leaders of the panel that independently reviewed the attack last year in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans have agreed to testify publicly before Congress to counter what they consider unfounded criticism of their work.

In a letter to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, veteran diplomat Thomas Pickering says he and former Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen will answer any questions lawmakers have.

Pickering calls criticism of the Accountability Review Board "unfounded." He says he and Mullen stand by its findings.

Republicans believe the board's report was flawed, and they want to know why top officials like Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton weren't interviewed.

GOP lawmakers had sought a private hearing with Pickering and Mullen.

Democrats said any hearing should be open.
