Hearings about the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Libya continue Friday.
Thursday, Maryland Congressman Dutch Ruppersberger talked to the media after the hearing.
"And i think once the members were able to see the timeline and things that occurred, i think in the end, the assessment's still the same. That, as it relates to Benghazi, you had a group of extremists who took advantage of a situation and unfortunately, we lost four American lives," Ruppersberger said.
"I think, though, as relates to those extremists, that they were representatives from Al Qaeda and other groups."
Former CIA Director General David Petraeus testified on Friday.
