He said, "It's no mystery that it's a dangerous situation there and everybody in that area I think is very concerned that they simply can't provide the security necessary to protect people in those places. I think that's why these countries have made the decision that they've made.
"As far as I know we have not been asked to participate in moving any people out of Benghazi."
