FBI agents scoured the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, for the first time since the Sept. 11 attack that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other diplomatic personnel. U.S. Special Operations forces escorted the agents to the compound from the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli. The FBI agents have been conducting their investigation into the killings from Tripoli in part due to unsafe conditions in Benghazi and because the Libyan government was slow to give them permission for their mission. In the interim, the compound has been looted by locals and combed through by reporters.
