U.S. denied access to Benghazi suspect; executive order to blame

Powered by Topple

Fox News reported Tuesday that Tunisian Ali Ani al Harzi has been identified as one of the men suspected of involvement in the Benghazi embassy attacks, but he can’t be interrogated by U.S. officials.

The man was seen on the video surveillance accounts from the night of the horrific event. He and one other suspect were detained at the airport in Turkey only days after the attack.

The problem is, according to Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R- Ga), the Obama administration has made it impossible for the U.S. to question Harzi.

“This individual in the hands of Tunisians is a classic example of what happens when you have lack of policy for detention for interrogations”.  “Once the president in January of 2009 signed the executive order, saying we are going to shut down Guantanamo … there are no policies in place to take possession and interrogate him in a way to gain valuable information.”

The State Department would not comment.
