On Sept. 11, 2012, the American diplomatic mission at Benghazi, Libya, was attacked by heavily armed militants, leading to deaths of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. While the White House initially insisted that the violence unfolded spontaneously in reaction to an anti-Islamic YouTube video, evidence later emerged that contradicted the administration’s talking points. Given the highly charged political environment at the time of the attack, the administration’s handling of the crisis has been subjected to withering criticism, raising questions about its interpretation of events. Since then, demands for the truth have grown as Libya continues to face violence from insurgents exploiting the unstable environment since the death of Moammar Gadhafi.
