15 Benghazi Witnesses Have Been Killed Since Consulate Attack

Via Talking Points Memo:

The Washington Post highlighted the report’s finding that 15 individuals who were “supporting the investigation or otherwise helpful to the United States” have been killed since the attacks. It’s unclear if those killings were in any way related to the U.S. investigation, according to the report.

“The FBI’s investigation into the individuals responsible for the Benghazi attacks has been hampered by inadequate cooperation and a lack of capacity by foreign governments to hold these perpetrators accountable, making the pursuit of justice for the attacks slow and insufficient,” the report read.

The Senate report concluded that the attacks were preventable, faulting the State Department and intelligence agencies for failing to increase security at the diplomatic compound in Benghazi and share information about a secret CIA annex that was also attacked.
