Clinton Denies Advance Warning of Libya Attack

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton denied Tuesday that Washington was warned of an imminent attack in Libya, stressing the United States would not rest until those behind the killings of four Americans are brought to justice.

“We had no actionable intelligence that an attack on our post in Benghazi was planned or imminent,” Clinton told a press conference after State Department talks with Mexican Foreign Minister Patricia Espinosa.

“We are taking aggressive steps to protect our staffs in embassies and consulates worldwide,” Clinton said, amid a wave of anti-US protests around the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia.
