Four State Department employees who were placed on administrative leave after the Benghazi terror attack have been reinstated, it emerged today.
A top House Republican also confirmed that the U.S. State Department's review of the attack and its aftermath did not include interviews with the employees - suggesting that they may have been used as scapegoats to spare higher-ups any responsibility. Those four State employees, the only ones disciplined after the 2012 terror attack on a diplomatic facility in Libya, were told Monday to return to work. They won't face any formal discipline.
