Libya: U.S. State Department Daily Press Briefing: Libya


Excerpt from the United States Department of State daily press briefing:

QUESTION: So now that the election is over and the President has safely been reelected, you're going to answer all of our questions about Benghazi? Or is that too much to hope?

QUESTION: (Inaudible.)

MS. NULAND: I think you know where we are. We have an ARB running, and the ARB, we hope, will answer all of our questions.

QUESTION: So the answer is no?

MS. NULAND: What specifically did you have in mind, Matt?

QUESTION: Well, any of the questions that you've been asked over the past several weeks that you've refused to answer.

MS. NULAND: And we have tied that to the fact that we have an ARB running. It was never tied to the election.

QUESTION: Oh, I think that some people thought that it was.

MS. NULAND: That was not what we said from this podium ever.


(The briefing was concluded at 1:23 p.m.)
