DOJ reportedly files first charges against Benghazi suspects


The Justice Department has finally charged the first suspects in connection with the Benghazi terror attack, but the criminal charges are sealed and other details are sketchy at best.

Reports say only that criminal charges have been filed against “several” individuals, but who they are and what the charges they face are unknown.

Fox News was able to confirm that one of the suspects charged is “Libyan militia leader Ahmed Khattalah,” who spoke to the network last October.

According to the Fox report:

In an interview conducted last October, Khattalah told Fox News that he was at the scene of the attack that night. He also expressed no remorse for the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was killed in the attack on the U.S. compound along with three other Americans.

But in the extended interview, Khattalah denied to Fox News that he was a “ringleader” of the attack, as he has been identified by others. He also said he was not a member of the militant group Ansar al-Shariah, said to be involved.

Khattalah also denied to Fox News at the time that he was “on the run.” He said no U.S. officials had made an effort to contact him or detain him.

The DOJ refused to comment any further to Fox other than saying the Benghazi investigation is “ongoing,” and that it “has been, and remains, a top priority.”
