That’s nearly 16 months since the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi. Directly after the attack, the State Department Operations Center had alerted senior department officials and the White House that Ansar al-Sharia had claimed responsibility on Facebook and Twitter.
“The Obama administration should be doing all it can to hunt down those responsible for this terrorist attack,” Royce added. “I’m gravely concerned that they are not.”
The Washington Post reported that a former Guantanamo Bay detainee, Abu Sufian bin Qumu, is suspected of participating in the attack that killed four Americans.
Qumu was released from Gitmo to Libya, where the Gadhafi regime freed him in 2008.
