(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Breaking news that no FBI investigators have yet been at the crime scene of the attack against the US consulate in Libya presented. Live discussion held about Libya with CNN's Fran Townsend, former CIA agent Bob Baer and "Newsweek"/Daily Beast's Eli Lake. [TOWNSEND - calls it astonishing that the FBI has not entered the crime scene in Benghazi; asks why the investigation has been mishandled so badly and the administration has been slow to explain; asks why the administration did not see this coming in Libya.] [Last night, Secretary of State Hillary CLINTON - says the FBI teams are in Libya.] [BAER - calls this outrageous: that the FBI is not right on the scene and the situation in Libya is precarious; reiterates this was an attack on US soil; states this is political because the administration does want to admit Libya has been lost and there is no one in control of parts of Libya.] [LAKE - comments on what is known about arrests in Libya; recalls how the two narratives about Libya and Egypt merged.]
Cooper, Anderson
