Some Libyan officials have raised sovereignty concerns about extensive FBI operations in Benghazi, the eastern coastal city where the Americans were killed at two U.S. government outposts. Safety concerns also have kept the FBI away from the city, although it visited Thursday for an extensive sweep of the U.S. mission there.<quoted text>
Did I forget to post this part:
Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens is reported dead with three other Americans in the Benghazi attack.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton condemns "this senseless act of violence," saying some have sought to justify the attack and protests "as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet."
President Obama says in a Rose Garden statement that an investigation is underway. He condemns the attackers and in an allusion to the video he says the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, but all must oppose such senseless violence against public servants.
U.S. intelligence agencies conclude internally that the incident was a planned terror attack likely by al-Qaeda affiliates on the embassy in order to release resources to respond, according to reports from several news media outlets.
Obama is interviewed on 60 Minutes and defends his Mideast policies as aligning the USA with democracy, saying, "There are going to be bumps in the road."
Republican members of Congress say they are have been told by intelligence officials that the Benghazi attack was a well-planned assault timed to the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, not an anti-video protest gone awry.
Prime Minister-elect Mustafa Abushagur lost Sunday’s confidence vote with 125 members of the 200-member Libyan General National Congress voting against him, 44 in favor and the remainder abstentions or no-shows. Abushagur had come under heavy fire last week for proposing a cabinet that critics said was filled with political unknowns. Following the protests he came up with a new slate but lost the vote.
Now Libya’s legislature must select a new prime minister who will have to assemble another cabinet. The process could take weeks. Abushagur, a longtime engineering professor in the United States, became Libya’s first democratically-chosen prime minister since Sept. 12, a day after the attacks in Benghazi.
