The State Department says it has been quietly offering rewards since January of up to $10 million for information about the attack last year on US diplomatic post in Libya.
Sen. Lindsey Graham threatened Monday to hold up all nominations for federal government positions until survivors of last year's deadly attack on the diplomatic post in Libya appear before Congress.
Sept. 11 already was a day of remembrance, but Wednesday confirmed that the day is now known as the anniversary of two terrorist attacks, and lawmakers spent Wednesday walking a fine line between commemorating the nearly 3,000 who died in 2001 and vowing vengeance or placing blame for the four who died in Libya in 2012.
The White House on Tuesday night used a statement on Sept. 11 "preparedness and security" to pledge to bring to justice those behind last year's attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, which claimed the lives of four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, and touched off a political firestorm at home.
Former Florida Rep. Allen West said Wednesday that Congress needs to appoint a special committee to investigate the Sept. 11, 2012, fatal attacks on America’s consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
Libya’s government earlier this month released a key terror suspect who U.S. officials say was involved in planning the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on U.S. diplomatic and intelligence facilities in Benghazi.
U.S. officials say they have identified five men they believe might be behind the attack on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.
Democrats rallied behind President Barack Obama in the long-running, bitter dispute over the administration's handling of the Benghazi attack, arguing that the White House's latest email disclosure undermines Republican claims of a cover-up.
The noise in the hen house this morning is the flutter and cackle of the chickens from Benghazi, scuttling home to roost. The House committee opening hearings Wednesday on what happened there is likely to serve up chicken surprise.
The Ansar al Sharia Brigade, the Islamist terror group linked to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, continues to operate freely in that Libyan city, according to U.S. military officials.
Silent for months, the former top deputy to slain Ambassador Chris Stevens has told congressional investigators that U.S. and Libyan officials on the ground believed immediately that the attack on the American mission in Benghazi was terrorism and not a protest gone awry as administration officials initially suggested.
This is a "first report" e-book that was obviously rushed to publication. The definitive book on the Benghazi debacle still needs to be written, and this isn't it. "Benghazi: The Definitive Report" has problems.
France will host a meeting next week to address growing concerns over the dire security situation in Libya, a French official said on Tuesday.
Congressional investigators have pieced together a series of decisions that led State Department officials to inexplicably draw down security in Libya last year even as threats and attacks against Western diplomats were rising in the violent, chaotic city of Benghazi where America’s ambassador was killed last Sept. 11.
Just hours before he died in a terrorist attack at the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Ambassador Chris Stevens sent a cable to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton painting a chaotic, violent portrait of the eastern Libya city and warning that local militias were threatening to pull the security they afforded U.S. officials.
"If we have one focused committee with subpoena powers that can get the survivors from Benghazi, get some of these CIA agents and operatives. And I think you need to depose Hillary Clinton and bring her back and talk about why Ambassador Chris Stevens was in Benghazi on the 11th anniversary of September 11," he said, Newsmax reported.
He told CBS Face The Nation he believes the erroneous descriptions of the attack stalled the arrival of the FBI to investigate what happened at Benghazi.
