Two years after the Benghazi attack, chaos in Libya

Thirteen years ago today, four planes hijacked by terrorists took their suicide mission across the northeast, striking landmarks at the heart of the country. It was the worst terror attack on the homeland in our history.

Years later, on another 9/11, another attack left four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens dead when militants stormed the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi.

CNN's Erin Burnett has more.

Exclusive: Benghazi suspect spoke to CNN last year

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.

Hillary Clinton takes on the GOP in Benghazi chapter

Hillary Clinton's preemptive strike.

The former U.S. Secretary of State is taking on critics who continue to question her role in the 2011 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

In a chapter of her upcoming book obtained by Politico, Clinton accuses Republicans of exploiting the tragedy.

She writes in part, "I will not be a part of a political slugfest on the backs of dead Americans. It's just plain wrong, and it's unworthy of our great country."

Report: Al Qaeda not behind Benghazi attack

More than a year after four Americans were killed in a terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, no one has been brought to justice.

Now a new investigation by the New York Times is raising even more questions.

According to the report, there is "no evidence that al Qaeda or other international terrorist groups had any role in the assault…" and it “…was fueled in large part by anger at an American-made video denigrating Islam."

This contradicts what many critics of the administration have been saying for months.

Republican Congressman Jason Chaffetz is one of those critics.
