On the night of September 11, 2012 Ambassador Chris Stevens, former Navy Seals Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods and Information Officer Sean Smith were murdered in Benghazi, Libya. What happened that night? Could it have been prevented? And who was to blame? Erin Burnett hosts CNN’s exclusive documentary, “The Truth About Benghazi”.
The U.S. is interrogating the alleged mastermind of the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
Ahmed Abu Khatallah, a man seen on OutFront last year, was captured over the weekend. Officials say this included luring him to a location to minimize others getting injured and that no shots were fired during the operation. He'll be taken to the U.S. within days.
President Obama says he will face the full weight of the U.S. justice system for the attack that left four Americans dead.
We first told you about Abu Khattallah in our OutFront documentary, The Truth About Benghazi, last year. It contained his only recorded interview with any television network in the world.
Arwa Damon is the reporter who spoke to him in that interview and is OutFront tonight with this exclusive report.
A car bomb exploded outside a Foreign Ministry building in the Libyan city of Benghazi Wednesday, state media said, on the anniversary of an assault on the U.S. Consulate there that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
The blast did not cause any casualties but blew away large parts of the building's facade, said Col. Abdullah Al Zaydi, spokesman for the Joint Security Task Force in Benghazi, according to Libya's state news agency, LANA.
The blast comes on the anniversary of the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, CNN’s Erin Burnett looked back at the night that took the lives of four Americans including Ambassador Chris Stevens in a CNN documentary, "The Truth About Benghazi". Burnett revisited the night of the attack, the U.S. military response, the latest on the investigation, and the political firestorm in Washington D.C.

Nearly a year after the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, CNN’s Erin Burnett looks back at the night that took the lives of four Americans including Ambassador Chris Stevens. With special reports from CNN senior international correspondent Arwa Damon and chief national correspondent John King, Burnett revisits the night of the attack, the U.S. military response, the latest on the investigation, and the political firestorm in Washington D.C.
In the special, Arwa Damon returns to Benghazi and interviews one of the suspects in the attack – Ahmed Abu Khattala – who has yet to be interviewed by the U.S. government. Damon’s reporting has caused outrage among many GOP lawmakers who asked in a letter sent to FBI Director James Comey "How come the FBI isn't doing this and yet CNN is?"
In addition to Damon’s interview, Burnett speaks to the families of Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith and Ambassador Stevens.
