WASHINGTON, Nov. 15 (Xinhua) -- The Obama administration has offered up to 10 million dollars since January for information leading to the arrest of attackers on the U.S. consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi, the State Department said on Friday.
The disclosure about the offer made under the agency's "Rewards for Justice" program was unveiled in a letter sent to members of Congress, as some lawmakers had complained that the department was not using all possible means to deliver on promises by President Barack Obama and others to bring the perpetrators to justice.
The attack on Sept. 11, 2012, in which U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed, is still haunting the Obama administration, as the Republicans have been pressing for truth about the attack.
The White House offered conflicting accounts of the raid, initially as one triggered by anti-American demonstrations and later as an act of terrorism by militants with links to al-Qaida.
No arrests have been made as separate investigations by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Libyan authorities are still under way.
