Well President Obama vowed to get answers on Ben -- Make no mistake we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers.
And finally -- -- the first suspect in the -- -- attack but still zero arrests leaving many victims to -- Was -- true justice here Fox News legal analyst Peter Johnson junior joins us now Peter nice to see this morning.
What took so long we know this guy could Tolle who's one of the guys of course under this.
That has been nabbed in this.
I was you -- sitting on the beaches KT McFarland pointed out earlier this morning he -- been talking about his role in this for a very long time why did it take so long yeah this guy was.
A year later for Americans short now they want credit for a sealed indictment that no one has seen.
And the point of -- sealed indictment is okay.
Now we've alerted these folks that were were really are looking for you so will they be found in the hotels that they were just a few weeks ago being interviewed by Reuters and CNN.
And others we also have a political determination by this White House that says.
After -- terroristic act after an act of war which for Americans were killed and others -- wounded.
We're gonna take this to the civil courts in the United States of America we -- try.
People want -- -- York -- Washington because it's a political determination because there's no will.
In this government today to bring people to task.
In a military sense if -- really engaged in the worldwide war on terror which the White House doesn't like to admit.
Then we're gonna -- in ways that are consistent.
With times of war and obviously there was an opportunity within weeks if not within days even though.
America was basically banned from the country because the statements made by Susan Rice there in contradiction to the president of of Libya.
We're in a position to snatch these folks.
Then and there and try them in a military court or at least and it is legal.
Interrogate them in -- military fashion and then later indict them.
In the civil court in the United States but we don't have them so we're gonna talk about this and obviously the White House and the Justice Department.
And these folks are reacting to the stories of the last few weeks.
Which says well these folks haven't been identified they haven't been interviewed we don't know where they are what they're doing so the White House -- no no no no we have an indictment that super secret is it because though it was US soil the US consulate and so therefore it would be under a US civil law is that why don't know let's go to purely political determination -- White House wants credit now for some now.
Seeking justice a year later after all this pain and suffering and misery in grief.
But they could have done this.
A year ago in -- was the military intervention we have the pictures -- but they were not interest in pulling the trigger instead -- more interest in putting up pictures.
In American post offices.
A five or six different suspects from that night is that somehow that's a sop.
For us to say okay -- will we're we're trying we haven't tried hard enough we still haven't accomplished that I doubt that if we go to a civil court.
There we're gonna accomplish in many effective way that's gonna satisfy Americans it's not a great day for the justice system or for the families of those we lost and that day.
Peter Johnson junior.
