Your claim of unarmed guards on orders from the State Department…baseless.

Your claim of only 3 or 4 guards when 5 were called for…baseless.

Your claim of the use of private security playing a role in the outcome…baseless.

Your claim that special precautions weren’t taken…baseless.


Interesting that everything you say above is pure liberal protectionisn even at the detriment of your own country.

That is shameful indeed.

Maybe you missed the first day of the hearings today???

Lt. Col, Andrew Wood, a former special forces soldier who commanded the Site Security Team in Libya from Feb. 12 to Aug. 14, said the embassy and consulate endured "numerous" security incidents. The Libya government had lost control of weapons, he said.

"Lawless situation was pretty much the norm," "We did notice an increase in targeted attacks toward Americans," that signaled to him that the security situation was far from secure.


Great....let's send our ambassador there right???

"When that occurred, it was apparent to me we were the last flag flying in Benghazi. We were the last target on their list," Wood said.

OK......you mean Col. Wood was the only person to recognize that Benghazi was the next target??

he said the consulate in Benghazi, where U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed, never had the forces it needed to protect itself.

He said that U.S. security was so weak that in April, only one U.S. diplomatic security agent was stationed in Benghazi.


Baseless???? Obviously all of your assertions are but NONE of mine!

Diplomatic security remained weak. In April there was only one U.S. diplomatic security agent stationed there," he said in his prepared, written testimony. "The RSO (regional security officer) struggled to obtain additional personnel there but was never able to attain the numbers he felt comfortable with," Wood added.

Baseless #2 and 3 ????????.........Obviously your assertions only!! Obama failed us again.

Nordstrom earlier told the committee that his pleas for more security were ignored.

Baseless #4 ????? Obviously all my reported assertions have been coorborated!!! Obama failed us.....and then mislead us!

Nordstrom addressed the diplomatic security issue in an Oct. 1 email to a congressional investigator. He said his requests for more security were blocked by a department policy to "normalize operations and reduce security resources."

Obama blocked the request for more security......he was there......he should know.

Baseless?????.........you take party over country......shameful!!

He stated that Charlene Lamb, the deputy assistant secretary for international programs, wanted to keep the number of U.S. security personnel in Benghazi artificially low. He said Lamb believed the Benghazi facilities did not need any diplomatic security special agents because there was a residential safe haven to fall back to in an emergency.

It just gets worse and worse.........and you ignore the tragedy for political purposes!
