Report: FBI Still Not On the Scene in Behnghazi

Via CNN:

More than two weeks after four Americans — including the U.S. ambassador to Libya — were killed in an attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, FBI agents have not yet been granted access to investigate in the eastern Libyan city, and the crime scene has not been secured, sources said.

“They’ve gotten as far as Tripoli now, but they’ve never gotten to Benghazi,” CNN National Security Analyst Fran Townsend said Wednesday, citing senior law enforcement officials.

Last Thursday, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told reporters that an FBI team had reached Libya earlier in the week.

“In fairness to the secretary, it may be that she wanted to be coy about where they were in Libya for security concerns. That’s understandable. But the fact is, it’s not clear they’ve been in Libya for very long,” Townsend said on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360°.”. . .

This is really unbelievable. What's the point in going now? Like there's anything of value left at the scene. I would assume -- maybe stupidly -- that the CIA or its designee in the region has visited the site to make sure there's nothing of value to the terrorists still there. On the other hand, the terrorists probably took anything of any value to them, i.e. files with names of informants, etc. - Greg Pollowitz
