Email Shows State Dept Rejecting Request of Security Team at US Embassy in Libya

I’ll make it easy for everyone to understand what really happened. What is the first rule of assassination?
Kill the assassin. Why?

Assassins tend to have a lot of information to accomplish their mission: names, places, access points, sources of money, knowing who gave them the order etc. Some have the ability to bring down the whole house of cards so its easier to just get rid of them after the job is done.

Now apply that same logic to an arms deal? Kill the arms dealer/ broker… The more that comes out about this coupled with what we already know the more I believe Glenn Beck’s hypothesis is dead on! Fallen ex-Navy SEAL Glen Doherty told ABC news weeks prior to the attack he was on an intel mission to track weapons. What weapons? Where did they come from? Why would we have just a few people tracking weapons in the first place in a covert type operation if we were so concerned about weapons ending up in the wrong hands. Hell “we” went into Iraq because Saddam wouldn’t hand over WMD’s right! That was a full on military operation! Why was Stevens in Libya with minimal security? No armored car, a poorly secure residence etc etc.

These are things you do to keep a low profile and when it went bad the regime cut them loose and left them for dead. Oh yes it’s that simple to conclude and makes a hell of a lot more sense to the many questions being asked. Indirectly “kill” the middleman and you have an out to a problem that you can wipe your hands clean from. Go back to the top of this and read what I first wrote!

ABC News has obtained an internal State Department email from May 3, 2012, indicating that the State Department denied a request from the security team at the Embassy of Libya to retain a DC-3 airplane in the country to better conduct their duties.

Copied on the email was U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was killed in a terrorist attack on the diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, Sept. 11, 2012, along with three other Americans. That attack has prompted questions about whether the diplomatic personnel in that country were provided with adequate security support.

No one has yet to argue that the DC-3 would have definitively made a difference for the four Americans killed that night. The security team in question, after all, left Libya in August.

But the question – both for the State Department, which is conducting an internal investigation, and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which is holding hearings next week – is whether officials in Washington, D.C., specifically at the State Department, were as aware as they should have been about the deteriorating security situation in Libya, and whether officials were doing everything they could to protect Americans in that country.

Earlier this week, the chair of the House Oversight Committee, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and another member of the committee wrote to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton listing 13 incidents leading up to the attack, ranging from IED and RPG attacks to a “posting on a pro-Gaddafi Facebook page” publicizing early morning runs taken by the late Ambassador Stevens and his security detail around Tripoli.

“Was State Department headquarters in Washington aware of all the above incidents?” they asked Secretary Clinton, requesting written responses by Oct. 8. “If not, why not? If so, what measures did the State Department take to match the level of security provided to the U.S. Mission in Libya to the level of threat?”…read more
