EDITORS' NOTE: According to a source close to Breitbart News and high up in the intelligence community, the Obama administration's policy following Muammar Gaddafi's death has been to keep a "low profile" during a chaotic time.
For this reason, according to the source, American Marines were not stationed at the U.S. embassy in Tripoli or the American mission in Benghazi, as would typically have been the case. In the spirit of a "low profile," the administration didn't even want an American company in charge of private security. Blue Mountain, the British firm the State Department hired, was willing to abide by the "no bullets" Rules of Engagement (ROE), so were a logical fit for the contract. These sub-standard protections for American diplomats were signed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the ROE.
In essence, the Obama Administration tasked an unarmed British firm with security responsibilities that should have been handled by armed American servicemen, and it was all approved by the Secretary of State. Needless to say, the plan failed and an Ambassador was murdered, along with several others.
As of now, the State Department has not disclosed the full State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya.
Here is the full story.

answers the question I had.
Marines are usually embassy guards.
No Marine would have let the place be over run by a bunch of 15th century infidels.
Brownies with cookies as guards.
Murderers who will never be tried. Hillary and dumbo. Un-indicted coconspirators in murder.
Seems Glenn Beck was right. The two former SEALs who were there were there working for the CIA, looking to purchase or buy back some of the rebels heavy weapons. Seems some of those weapons ended up getting used on them.
Unless thy were never issued ammo. This seems to be the ROE of the Obama administration. Threaten them with the possibility of being shoot. BS
Of course this is not going to happen since their bos works for obastards boss. No FBI investigation is going to find a thing.
We are living in Russia or Venezuela or Cuba but this sure ain’t the USA anymore.
State has four brands of security guards. Those hired from local sources by contractors. US Top Secret cleared agents provided by US contractors. US TS agents hired under direct employment contracts by State and US DS agents, career employees of State. The administration is just refusing to say exactly what their situation was in Libya.
>> “No Bullets” ROE
The cynical, prevailing opinion established in advance of the facts.
Do we not know theses fools?
community organizer drive by combat style, Like how they rat a tatted Ghaddafi and looted his Euros
yep, Yep !
YEP, NO heros coming out of D.C. area.
Just like the good ole Bill Clinton years, where Louie Freeh (FBI director) and his boys would always show up to ‘investigate’....
Everybody in the security community..Dyncorp, Triple Canopy etc knows who was guarding the Embassy..press..go ask them.
My guess is that is was State DS contract people. Probably one or two DS career employees and six contract people. The former Seals may have been contract people...or CIA contract people. All the US people were no doubt armed and loaded, but what the ROE was is in question.
Thanks Jet Jaguar!
