Not the relevant question, we know where they are currently hanging out. The relevant questions are twofold; a. Who has been named to replace Steves? b. Whom is being detained by the interum Government of Libya in connection with the US Consulate attack.
"Country Clearance" and coordination for travel within Lybia befalls the office of the Chief of Mission, the Ambassador, who takes his or her orders from Secretary of State Clinton. If the FBI investigative team cannot travel to Benghazi, it is because Clinton (who takes her orders from the POTUS) has directed they NOT travel there.
The delay of FBI investigative team in raching Benghazi has gone on too long to simply be leftover actions from a measure designed to delay their investigation into what is now painfully obvious; the events at the US Consulate were the result of a terrorist act.
Meanwhile, those responsible have departed the AO (area of operations) and the trail is cold or.... they are being detained by the Lybian interum Government and the US Governement apparently has no desire to speak to them and secure statements.
The FBI and Justice Department are simply doing what they are told. I cannot believe Secretary of State Clinton would not want to bring closure, and see those responsonsible for Stevens death brought to justice. That only leave one other entity holding the bag.
The DNI was the first person to opine that what took place in Behghazi was a "terrorist act". You can take it from there.

#2 To these people (and I don't mean Libyans) appearances are everything. The only substance they know is "substance abuse".

#3 The investigation is operating as planned; the PLAN is to be sure and not find out anything that might embarass the White House until half past November. Preferably never.

#4 I fear you are right Ed. It's MAJ Nidal Hasan, all over again.

#6 Not the relevant question, we know where they are currently hanging out.
It was a rhetorical question, leading to a summary. Something that curiously is missing in the various media that, until recently, was quite able to put forth.

#7 Where is the CIA? It was them that "got their eyes poked." Hard to think that Petraeus is just sitting on the sidelines with this.

#8 Immediately the Obama Regime said they would send the FBI to investigate and 50 marines to go after the "rioters".
1) A few days later it was CNN who found the Ambassador's diary on the floor of the crime scene.
2) It was the people of Benghazi who after several days of protesting, went to the militia locations publicaly known to the whole city and ran off Al Qaeda.
The real question is, when it comes to the Obama regime, where is the TRUTH! Now THAT is the REAL security issue facing America.

#9 So the correct answer is, by law, the FBI would be responsible for investigating this. The CIA would support as nest they could. But then pants suit and zero are in charge. Bozo the clown would be more responsive.
