State Department responds to CBS News Benghazi info request

The State Department on Tuesday notified CBS News that is has posted all documents released to date regarding a CBS News Freedom of Information (FOI) request regarding the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks on the U.S. compounds in Benghazi. 

This move comes after several months of CBS News challenging the agency's failure to provide the same records to the public that it's released as part of a lawsuit filed by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch

Only a small number of documents have been posted. They include 14 still photographs of the aftermath of the terrorist attacks in which four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, were killed. 

The documents can be viewed by going to the State Department Reading Room search page and searching the term "Benghazi." The State Department says more documents will be posted if and when they are deemed to be public. To date, the CIA, Defense Intelligence Agency, Pentagon and FBI have provided no documents responsive to CBS News' FOI requests filed in December 2012 regarding Benghazi.
