A long-awaited inquiry into a deadly militant attack on the US mission in the Libyan city of Benghazi late on December 18, 2012 slammed State Department security arrangements there as "grossly inadequate."  But the months-long probe also found there had been "no immediate, specific" intelligence of a threat against the mission, which was overrun on September 11 by dozens of heavily armed militants who killed four Americans.

    Tunisian authorities have released the sole suspect in custody for the attack on the U.S. consulate, due to lack of evidence. Ali Harzi was released on Monday night, though he must remain in the greater Tunis area. Harzi, a Tunisian, had been arrested in Turkey wand was extradited to Tunisia in October and Tunisian authorities said he was “strongly suspected” of being involved in the attack. His lawyer has long said that there is no evidence linking Harzi to the attack. The investigation in Libya has also stalled because of the weak power of the central government relative to the powerful militias who may have been involved in the attack.
