NEW YORK — CBS News said Friday that it was misled by a 60 Minutes source who claimed he was on the scene of a 2012 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, when it now turns out there are serious doubts about whether he was.
“We were wrong,” reporter Lara Logan said on CBS This Morning. “We made a mistake.”
Logan had interviewed Dylan Davies, a security contractor who claimed he took part in the fighting at that mission. But the Washington Post reported a few days later that Davies had told his employer that he was not at the site.
It was revealed late Thursday that Davies had also told the FBI he was not there.
