(CNN) – Welcome to CNN Radio News Day.
Here are some of the stories we cover in today's edition:
"Ansar al-Sharia is like the Rotary Club, well, with a difference. There are so many of them in so many different Arab countries. There are so many Facebook pages, Twitter pages, associated with Ansar al-Sharia's' whether they're Libya, Morocco, Egypt, Yemen. It's very difficult to tell that this posting... would actually suggest the Benghazi branch of Ansar al-Sharia was intimately involved with this attack."
"For the first time, al Qaeda has its own country... We have to ensure that al Qaeda has no place to hide."
"What stands out in this last pitch, what you can see if you step back, is where the candidates think they need work and where they think their opponent is weak."
