U.S. identifies some involved in Benghazi attack, lawmaker says

By Ted Barrett

The U.S. government has identified "a certain number of people" believed involved in the Benghazi, Libya, attack, a senior Republican lawmaker told CNN on Tuesday.

The lawmaker said that government investigators have put identities to individuals seen in surveillance video of the attack.

"They know the names. That's what we haven't known. These are individuals they know now. Not just the pictures," the senior lawmaker said.

The lawmaker, who is familiar with the status of the investigation, could not say how many had been identified.

Just last week, Attorney General Eric Holder hinted there were developments in the investigation. FULL POST
