President Obama Meets With Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan

by Colonel on March 13, 2013

“On the day he named a replacement for the United States ambassador slain at the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, in September, President Obama also met with Prime Minister Ali Zeidan of Libya and emphasized the need for his country’s help in finding the attackers who carried out the assault that led to death of the envoy and three other Americans.

A statement issued by the White House after the meeting on Wednesday said that Mr. Obama had “stressed the importance of Libya’s cooperation with the ongoing investigation” and added that he and Mr. Zeidan had also discussed ways to strengthen Libya’s institutions.

Mr. Obama has repeatedly vowed to bring the attackers to justice. But there is no indication that the culprits have been located or that their capture is imminent.
