Mastermind in Benghazi attack walking free in Libya, but FBI releases photos of three men from Benghazi attack site?

The FBI on Thursday released the photographs of three men it said were at the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, when it was attacked last September, Reuters reported.

The FBI did not call the three men suspects in the attacks, saying only that they "may be able to provide information to help in the investigation."

Well, judging from the bungling job that the FBI did in monitoring Tamerlan Tsarnaev's extremist activities in the months and years leading up to the Boston Marathon bombing - including his trips abroad -  my first inclination is to assume that the photos which the FBI released of the three men who were at the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi on the day of the attack, who, the FBI says, are not necessarily suspects, but nevertheless "may be able to provide information to help in the investigation" - my first inclination is to assume that the FBI photos of these three individuals look something like this:

That's would be my first inclination......

I'm sorry about the cynicism and sarcasm, but bear in mind: We're talking about the Obama administration, which, not only has been engaged in a prolonged and extensive cover-up on the Benghazi attacks, but has also been dragging its feet in dealing with the perpetrators of the attacks.

One example, which you're probably aware of by now:
The U.S. has identified the mastermind of the Benghazi attack, sources tell Fox News, though the individual apparently is walking free in Libya. The confirmation from multiple sources comes more than seven months after the assault on two U.S. locations in Benghazi, Libya... But one source told Fox News the government is "sitting on" information.

"We basically don't want to upset anybody, and the problem is, if Ambassador Stevens' family knew that we were sitting on information about the people who killed their son, their brother, on and on, then, and we could look them as a government in the face, then we're messing up. We're messing up," the source said.
So, I hope you can understand my cynicism, and sarcasm.
Fox News spoke exclusively with the special operator who watched the events [in Benghazi] unfold in real time and has debriefed those who were part of the response.

[The special operator] remains anonymous for his safety and has decided to talk because he says he and others connected with the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks in Benghazi are frustrated with the excuses, [lies] and lack of a military response since Stevens and three other Americans were killed. 

"We have all the capability, all the training, all the capacity, to kill and capture not only terrorists involved, with the specific events of 9/11, and Ambassador Stevens' death, but terrorists that are feeding other regions including Europe that could eventually affect our national security in the short term," the source said. "And we're not talking midterm or long-term, this is the short-term." 

The source said "it's a daily frustration." 

"Benghazi, the second-highest population of foreign fighters in the war in Iraq came from Benghazi, second to Saudi Arabia, so we are talking about a historic location and region that has fed foreign fighters to kill Americans, and kill other coalition forces," [the] source said. 

"The analysts, the intelligence experts all say the same thing, that if we just ignore the situation as it presents itself, eventually it will be another invasion will have to take place for us to eventually turn the tide." 

He says the region also remains a weapons hub after the overthrow of former leader Muammar Qaddafi in 2011, which saw massive stockpiles of weapons in Libya move freely across the Mediterranean...
