The consulate where the American ambassador to Libya was killed on Tuesday is an interim facility not protected by the contingent of Marines that safeguards embassies, POLITICO has learned.
Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed with three other Americans in an attack on the U.S. consulate in the city of Benghazi, where Libyan rebels ousted strongman Moammar Qadhafi last year.
Marine Corps spokeswoman Capt. Kendra Motz said that Marines were not posted to the consulate, unlike the embassy in the capital, Tripoli.

mac daddy brought them home so they were able to be forced to attend his photo op rallies.
WTF??? Why the HELL NOT?????? Thanks Obama for getting these people killed.
Obama is too busy campaigning, golfing or running around joking with the MSM or Hollywood to be President. This is not a joking matter.
sending Marines now...kind of like shutting the barn door AFTER... what a fool we have for a president
The barbarians are at the gate and Israel stands alone.
The more that comes out the more this Administration gets a huge F. They have flunked out and need to be removed from leadership! LACK of leadership... That is!
Oh, they have leadership.....they are leading us to DESTRUCTION in the FAST LANE, which was why Obama was ELECTED.....by STUPID people that wanted us DESTROYED!
Planned by Obama.
Planned by enemies of the USA.
Enemies foreign and domestic.
Obammy is a...I can’t post it. sorry.
The American Ambassador was murdered....he represents us.....in essence, they murdered you and me.
Obama said Libyan Security Forces fought side by side with the Marines but they weren't there?
Then we find out the Libyan Security Forces fingered the Ambassador and told the mob what building he was in.
Then Obama said that the Libyans rushed the Ambassador to the Hospital but CBS reports the mob drug him through the streets. Now CBS is captioning the photo of him being drug through the streets as locals trying to rush the unconscious Ambassador to the hospital.
Folks we are being lied to. This whole situation stinks to high heaven. I am literally watching these stories and you can see the work of the ministry of truth redacting and morphing the meme to give an advantage to Obama.
The issue of the open mic that reveals the MSM reporters colluding to Ambush Romney is chilling. YET NO ONE IS CALLING FOR THOSE REPORTERS TO BE FIRED. NOT EVEN THE RNC.
All I can say is WTF IS WRONG WITH THE REPUBLICANS?
DO they not understand this operation to hide the truth should be shouted from the roof tops?
HEY...our AMBASSADOR was there......where are the MARINES????
They were unable to defend themselves.Must of felt safe there.
In an August blog post, Draper said the ambassador was “legendary” in Libya because he stayed in the country through the revolution, “liaising with the rebels and leading a skeleton crew of Americans on the ground to support humanitarian efforts and meeting up-and-coming political leaders.”
You would think they would have cut his throat last.
So far, James Taranto in the WSJ, Best of the Web, is the only one telling the truth about the situation.
I have been thinking that the command went out from the White House to the media that the US had to speak as one voice in this dangerous foreign policy situation and that Romney is not that one voice. I think the order went down to support the White House, no matter what.
So...he died of suffocation from the fire
and... he was carried by lybians to the hospital
and... he was taken to a separate building where he was killed.
Muslims ONLY respect STRENGTH.....ONLY strength!!!! Sadly the Amb.was seen as WEAK.
Where oBama single handedly ousted strongman Moammar Qadhafi last year for his Libyan rebel buddies.
Fake but accurate
Tripoli I assume. That's where the embassy is, that's where their post is. They aren't the ambassador's personal bodyguards.
I doubt even that is true. They hate. It's what they do best. They hate without fear from retaliation because when your goal is martyrdom then it doesn't matter if you're picking on the biggest guy in the room or the smallest.
No, they actually DO respect STRENGTH.......it;s the ONLY thing they do.
You’ve got every right to be pissed. And you missed something from a related article. This was one of the last postings by the ambassador, in some on-line game forum (so, he wasn’t perfect). He was smart - he knew his days were over.
“(12:54:09 PM) vile_rat: assuming we don’t die tonight. We saw one of our ‘police’ that guard the compound taking pictures”
on 9/11 they couldn’t arrange the ambassdador to be in Tripoli
embassy guarded by Marines
he’s at Benghazi?????? with no Marines?????
naive, incompetent, dangerous, arrogant, foolish
oh, I see Obama is Prez, therefore everyone loves us and nothing bad
will happen 9/11
Are you telling me that our AMb. have no security detail....anywhere???? Come on...especially in the Arab world.
Kind of reminiscent of how Clinton & Les Aspin refused to send our Rangers the equipment they asked for, and then left them there to die in Mogadishu.
The Obama White House and State Department have repeatedly been told since 2009, by both Congressional Committees, and the State Department's own watch-dog, that security at our embassies needs to be beefed up. So what did Obama and Clinton know, and when did they know it? When will we see Sandy Burgher make another trip to the Archives to stuff classified papers covering this tragic event, down his pants?
Liberals think themselves invincible.
I know the shadow of too many disastrous presidents hangs over this one....
Anarchist or incompetent or too much toot.
The Foreign Policy of this Administration has
always been a day late and a "dollar" short !
Anarchist or incompetent or too much toot.
A dead Muzz doesn’t have to respect strength.
>> Folks we are being lied to.
I don’t get how this is being characterized as a social-media based operation, yet there was no actionable intel that would have helped to protect the embassy personnel.
No doubt the MSM spun that to sound like they took the living Ambassador to the hospital. I've never heard someone refer to a living person as a "body" that they are taking to the hospital.
No that was Sean Smith that was the in the online game forum not Amb Stevens.
“All I can say is WTF IS WRONG WITH THE REPUBLICANS?”
It’s called the stupid party for good reasons.
Sleep well in your bed tonight because Republicans are watching over you. (sarcasm)
Wikipedia tells me that Smith (vile_rat) was a big time gamer. Like, known globally.
Must have made a hell of a contribution to Obama's administration.
There was a really good article about Sean Smith on Free Republic by the guy he was online with moments before Smith was murdered. I found it using Sean Smith as the keyword.You might find it interesting. I did.
I’ve been asking all day , who are these 2 Americans that were killed ? Marines ? Have their names been released ?
Malignancy, siding with Muslims.
granted a malignant narcissist
