Libyan Leader Issues Apology For Benghazi Attack, Still No Response From Egypt
The leadership of Libya has issued an apology to the United States for the attack in Benghazi that resulted in the death of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Foreign Service officers:
TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — Libya’s interim president has apologized to the United States for the attack on the U.S. consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi that killed the American ambassador and three of his staff.
Mohammed el-Megarif described the attack as “cowardly” and offered his condolences on the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens and the three other Americans. Speaking to reporters, he vowed to bring the culprits to justice and maintain his country’s close relations with the United States. He said the three Americans were security guards.
Perhaps of more interest, and potential concern, though, is the fact that there has yet to be a comment of any kind from Mohammad Morsi or anyone else connected to the Egyptian Government.
