FBI Is Still Not In Benghazi, Scene Not Secured

From CNN, of all places:

Sources: 15 days after Benghazi attack, FBI still investigating from afar

By CNN Wire Staff | Thurs September 27, 2012

(CNN) — More than two weeks after four Americans — including the U.S. ambassador to Libya — were killed in an attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, FBI agents have not yet been granted access to investigate in the eastern Libyan city, and the crime scene has not been secured, sources said.

And CNN should know this, since they were able to waltz onto the crime scene and scoop up Ambassador Stevens’ diary.

"They’ve gotten as far as Tripoli now, but they’ve never gotten to Benghazi," CNN National Security Analyst Fran Townsend said Wednesday, citing senior law enforcement officials.

Last Thursday, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told reporters that an FBI team had reached Libya earlier in the week.

"In fairness to the secretary, it may be that she wanted to be coy about where they were in Libya for security concerns. That’s understandable. But the fact is, it’s not clear they’ve been in Libya for very long," Townsend said on CNN’s "Anderson Cooper 360°."

That’s it. Mrs. Clinton was trying to protect the FBI. Not the Obama administration.

"They had difficulty, and we understand there was some bureaucratic infighting between the FBI and Justice Department on the one hand, and the State Department on the other, and so it took them longer than they would have liked to get into country. They’ve now gotten there. But they still are unable to get permission to go to Benghazi."

So part of the delay has been due to Mrs. Clinton’s State Department? How typical.

FBI agents have made a request through the U.S. State Department for the crime scene to be secured, Townsend said, but that has not happened.

All of which almost makes it sounds like some in our own government are obstructing justice. Especially, Mrs. Clinton’s State Department.

And remember, we’re always told that often the ‘cover-up’ is even worse than the crime.

"The senior law enforcement official I spoke to said, ‘If we get there now, it’s not clear that it will be of any use to us,’" Townsend said.

The FBI team has conducted interviews of State Department and U.S. government personnel who were in Libya at the time of the attack, Townsend said, but the FBI’s request to directly question individuals who Libyan authorities have in custody was denied

Why? We have been told that the Libyan government are our friends and that they are only too eager to help.

All in all, this stinks to high heaven.
