US investigates whether Libya attack was planned to mark 9/11

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration, roiled by the first killing of a U.S. ambassador in more than 30 years, is investigating whether the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Libya was a planned terrorist strike to mark the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and not a spontaneous mob enraged over an anti-Islam YouTube video.

President Barack Obama declared in a White House appearance that the U.S. would ‘‘work with the Libyan government to bring to justice’’ those who killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. The attack on the Benghazi consulate was ‘‘a planned, coordinated, well-executed military style event,’’ House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers said.
