OBAMA ADMIN SENT UNARMED BRITISH FIRM TO PROTECT U.S. MISSION IN BENGHAZI "No Bullets" ROE
Breitbart ^ | 091812 | Michael Patrick Leahy

Posted on 09/18/2012 10:05:42 PM PDT by Fred

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.

Seems as if FBI should be investigating their boss, Huessein Obama in this case. If they know something, it 's a crime to sit on it. Right?

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.

Of course this is not going to happen since their bos works for obastards boss. No FBI investigation is going to find a thing.

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.

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.

makes me wonder if it was a hit because they knew AMB Chris Stevens was about to blow the lid off of the reason why they did a drive by on Ghaddafi , ( to loot the trillions they owed him and held )

This is insane. Obama is directly responsible for the death of Stevens and the others. Obama is a murderer.

Yet, Rice said on some of the Sunday shows, when asked about not having enough security, said of the 4 that were killed TWO security (seals), I don't think she said seals.

TWO security????? TWO??? 2???, wow, like that was enough. She re-stated that stupid remark several times, when the host would let up. I don't think the host could believe his ears either. TWO, she said.

What will tomorrows SAGA from the WH tell us?

The “October Surprise” will probably be another “Anita Hill” type high-tech lynching of either Mitt or Paul. - It’s all Democrats know how to do; but they’ll need the media to hang with them. (Crossing their fingers the public remains gullible just a little bit longer.)

Limey poofters.

If Hillary were *really* as good as Slick Willie, she'd have fraudulently attacked the Brits for not providing proper security ("I am OUTRAGED! They weren't even ARMED!") to satisfy Obamugabe's hatred for the Brits -- seeing as how he returned the bust of Winston...

Cheers!

But, but, according to that great TV trickle down the leg Matthews, they had a history making ceremony at Andrews AFB to welcome back the bodies of those killed.

Now, I know that makes everything okay, right?

“The administration is just refusing to say exactly what their situation was in Libya.”

None of this makes sense and odumbo admin has done virtually nothing to clear up the confusion.

I have been wondering if the two ex-SEAL guys killed were Tripoli based? Were they even security or CIA doing something else? Was there a “rescue mission” with U.S. personnel?

What happened to the Benghazi security detail? Etc., Etc.
