FBI Interviews Differ from Obama’s Accounts of What Led to Consulate Attack in Benghazi

The Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi may not have happened as described by the Obama administration, Fox News reports.

The FBI interviewed survivors for three days and none reported a demonstration.

Obama initially said the attack occurred after a protest of an anti-Islam film got out of control.

“The FBI confirmed to me that when they interviewed the survivors on the 15th the 16th and the 17th [of September], not one person ever mentioned anything other than a terrorist attack. No one mentioned a protest outside the consulate,” Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham told Fox News. “So, how could the Obama administration come up with a protest story if everybody on the ground during the attack said it was a terrorist attack and there was no protest?”

It still remains clear whether the information ever got to the president, Fox News reported.

FBI Agents to Question Suspect in Deadly Benghazi Attack

FBI agents plan to question a suspect in the deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya in a development that could bring suspects to justice in the deaths of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, the Associated Press reports.

The suspect, Ali Ani al Harzi, drew suspicions after he detailed the attack on social media as it was happening, according to the AP.

Al Harzi is detained in Tunisia.

“We are very pleased the Tunisian government is working with American investigators to allow in person access to Ali Ani al Harzi. Under this arrangement the interviews will be under Tunisian supervision and consistent with their sovereignty and meets the needs of our investigative team,” U.S. Senators Lindsey Graham and Saxby Chambliss said in a statement Saturday.

“Allowing American investigators in person access will make the interview more meaningful and is a welcome breakthrough in our efforts to find the perpetrators of the Benghazi Consulate attacks,” they added, according to the AP.
