Benghazi Killers: When Will They Be Brought to Justice?

Getting to the bottom of the Benghazi attack is proving to be a long, drawn-out string of cover-ups and investigations that may never be fully resolved.
 

It’s been over 11 weeks since the deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya, which resulted in the death of four Americans. U.S. President Barack Obama pledged that those responsible would be brought to justice. So far, that hasn’t happened.

At the end of October, the fbi was granted permission by Tunisia to question one of the few suspects in the attack, Ali Harzi. He was being detained in Tunisia after being arrested in Turkey. Tunisia granted the U.S. permission to question the suspect after Republican senators Saxby Chambliss and Lindsey Graham pressed Tunisian authorities. “It isn’t clear what pressure the Obama administration had been applying” prior to that, Fox News reported November 2. The letter said that not allowing the U.S. access “could damage relations and might result in an aid cutoff to the North African state,” the Jerusalem Post reported. Up until this threat of removing economic aid, Tunisia had refused to allow America access to the suspect.
