National Security Adviser Susan Rice insisted Sunday she used "the best information we had at the time" when she described the deadly Benghazi attack as a spontaneous protest in 2012 — but Sen. John McCain wasn't buying it.
Thirty-four Americans at the U.S. Special Mission and CIA Annex in Benghazi were attacked by Islamic terrorists in two waves, the first starting at 9:40 p.m. the evening of Sept. 11, 2012.
Both highly critical and bipartisan, a Senate report declared Wednesday that the deadly assault on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, could have been prevented. The account spreads blame among the State Department, the military and U.S. intelligence for missing what now seem like obvious warning signs.
Deadly Benghazi attack in 2012 was preventable, Senate Intelligence Committee declares
It's been 16 months since Muslim extremists sacked the American diplomatic mission and CIA annex in Benghazi on the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, resulting in the brutal deaths of four brave Americans, including our ambassador.
Libya's deteriorating security was evident Monday when troops and armed civilians in Benghazi clashed with members of a militant group blamed for the attack last year that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador.
They loom over him, brandishing their weapons, their gaze steady. The sculptor can feel the presence of the heroes he honors in clay and bronze, U.S. Navy SEALs all. And all of them gone.
Team Obama must still answer for undeniably lax security in Benghazi
One of President Obama's key arguments for military intervention in Syria is that its president, Bashar Assad, violated international norms by using sarin gas. While the Obama administration loudly beats the war drums over Mr. Assad's violation of international norms, it remains virtually silent on another egregious violation of international norms: the slaying of an American diplomat.
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.
There has been little public testimony from the American personnel in Benghazi, Libya, on exactly what happened as extremists attacked them on Sept. 11, 2012. Did they make calls for help and, if so, what did the U.S. military tell them?
A coalition of conservatives have joined together for a social media campaign with one clear goal — to compel the White House and Congress to investigate and reveal the events of Sept. 11, 2012, that left four Americans dead in Benghazi, Libya.
The al Qaeda threat that closed 22 U.S. diplomatic posts Sunday followed intense efforts in Washington to increase security at embassies in danger spots around the world, nearly a year after the deadly terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya.
Ten months after the horrific tragedy in Benghazi, Libya, when terrorists attacked the U.S. Consulate and killed four Americans, the administration has given no credible answer to persistent questioning about why units such as the Foreign Emergency Support Team were not activated to save the lives of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, information officer Sean Smith and former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.
He argued that the manner in which the violence unfolded in Benghazi — with an attack on a diplomatic post, where Mr. Stevens is believed to have died, and a second on a nearby CIA annex, where the former SEALs were killed — rendered an effective counterstrike or rescue attempt impossible.
