It’s been four months since the deadly 9/11 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that left four Americans dead, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens. We still haven’t heard testimony from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the incident and we don’t know when we will. We saw a few State Department resignations, but those people are still getting paid. The guy who made the irrelevant anti-Islam film? He’s still in jail. As for the killers who carried out the atrocity? They’re still on the loose. More from Eli Lake:
Ever since an armed mob torched a U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, President Obama has vowed to bring the killers of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans to justice. Yet four months after the assault, U.S. counterterrorism and intelligence officials tell The Daily Beast that the hunt for those responsible remains stymied by poor cooperation by North African governments.
