Libyan authorities have made four arrests in the investigation into the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi in which the U.S. ambassador and three embassy staff were killed, the deputy interior minister said on Thursday.
"Four men are in custody and we are interrogating them because they are suspected of helping instigate the events at the U.S. consulate," Wanis el-Sharef, eastern Libya's deputy interior minister, told Reuters.ONE ITTY BITTY PROBLEM:
He said others were being closely monitored by police to see whether they are linked to a group. He refused to elaborate.
"A security unit is fine if you are facing 10 persons, but there were 400 attackers. [The Americans] would have needed an army to stop them."EXACTLY:
- IT WILL TAKE AN ARMY.
- NOT A FEW ARRESTS AND A TRIAL.
WE DIDN'T SEND ERIC HOLDER TO ABBOTTABAD.
WE SENT THE SEALS.
THERE'S A LESSON IN THAT.
THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT MUST SEND A KINETIC MESSAGE TO THE PERPETRATORS.
AND THE SOONER THE BETTER.
