5 years after Benghazi attacks, search for jury starts for terrorism trial in DC | Stripes

Five years after lethal attacks in Benghazi on U.S. diplomatic and intelligence facilities, potential jurors arrived Tuesday in federal court in Washington in preparation for the terrorism trial of the accused leader of the assaults in Libya.

Potential jurors answered 28 pages of questions that plumbed their views on issues that have confronted and roiled the country for more than a decade.

The 130 questions extended beyond routine vetting queries about employment, education and previous jury experience to ask about views on whether the U.S. government acts fairly toward mostly Muslim countries and aggressively enough to fight terrorism.
