Four months have now passed since the terrorist attack on the US diplomatic compound in Benghazi took the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. But for all the vows that the perpetrators would swiftly be brought to justice, no one so far has been.

So much for President Obama’s solemn promise: “Make no mistake, we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people.”
What’s happened instead?
Tunisia last week released the only person who’s been arrested as a possible suspect, citing “lack of evidence.”
Time magazine quotes a senior Libyan activist: “There is no Libyan investigation. There is not even a will to investigate.”
