4 U.S. State employees face reassignment

Washington (CNN) - Four State Department employees who were put on administrative leave after last year's attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, will be reassigned inside the department, a senior State Department official told CNN on Tuesday.

The four were placed on leave last December by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton after the September 11 attack that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

    Good try at a cover up. Too bad it didn't work. We know these 4 were not to blame. This needs to be put to bed and now. The stalling and lies need to stop.

    Wasn't one of these people the guy who testified before the Republican show trial that he wanted a rescue mission?

    Notice they will receive no punishment, of any kind. Reassignment is a simple word.......for covering up their past deeds, and giving them a fresh start, with a clean slate.

  4. Name jk. Sfl. GOP conservatives,the garbage of America.

    At least the Obama administration puts some thought into its actions while the GOP is frothing at the mouth without any evidence of wrong doing. Just shows how incompetent the GOP and Romney the tax cheat were and still are with no evidence to back them up, just GOP sore losers and they better get use to losing in the future,GOP morons are worthless!!!
