Benghazi attack: FBI seeks three men at scene
Last Updated: 217 days ago
WASHINGTON - The FBI has released new images of three men sought in connection with the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans including U.S. ambassador Christopher Stevens.
The FBI released a poster in both English and Arabic, with photos of the men and a brief statement that "These individuals may be able to provide information to help the investigation."
The FBI said the three "were on the grounds of the U.S. Special Mission when it was attacked."
Although White House spokesman Jay Carney said Wednesday that it has been "the focus of the President and his teams to both investigate … what happened in Benghazi and why and to take action to ensure it doesn't happen again, and to investigate the act itself and to bring to justice those responsible."
Despite that statement, no suspects have been taken into custody in the seven months since the attack occurred.
In addition to Ambassador Stevens, State Department computer specialist Sean Smith and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were killed in the attack.
Republican lawmakers said they intend to call the unnamed whistleblowers before the House Oversight Committee next week.
Stating the attack happened "a long time ago," Carney accused the GOP of continuing to make political hay of the deadly event.
"The politicization of this issue is unfortunate and it continues unabated," Carney said.
The FBI is asking anyone with information on the three men in question to email the bureau at BenghaziTips@ic.fbi.gov or by filling out a form at https://forms.fbi.gov/benghazi-en
