AUGUSTA, GA -- Georgia's senior U.S. senator, RepublicanSaxby Chambliss, plans to ask the CIA to declassify all emails surrounding the Benghazi, Libya, attacks in an attempt to make the investigation into last year's assault a national security issue and not a "political exercise," reports The Augusta Chronicle.

Chambliss' announcement Monday comes a week after leaked emails showed State Department leaders suggested changes to the official talking points drafted for the Sept. 11 incident, including the deletion of mentions of specific terrorist groups, the paper reports.

"I think the American people deserve to have all the information laid out there for them to make their own judgment," Chambliss said in an interview with the Augusta paper.
