I'll bet that when this whole Libyan thing is reviewed systematically, it will turn out that all the current finger pointing is just political dramatization of very ordinary, day to day stuff that happens in diplomatic circles, but that happens to include some unfortunate deaths, which is not ordinary, but which happens, and often in ways that were not very avoidable other than diplomacy by drone or teleconference.It isn't as if we are dealing with an unruly mob who overpowered an insufficient security staff and gained access. More guards are not necessarily effective against rockets. And how much of what we are seeing turned into headlines is just opportunistic manipulation of routine diplomatic interaction? Who is it actually making these requests that are being turned down? Are such requests routine and are they routinely turned down? Would they have made any difference if granted? What level were they made? Was there any intelligence behind them or were they just nervous people in an unfamiliar place wanting more staff? And, given what you, Duma, are trying to make of this, was *any* of this something that Obama would have been personally aware of?
