A speedy, effective response by newly trained Libyan security guards to a small bombing outside the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi in June may have led United States officials to underestimate the security threat to personnel there, according to counterterrorism and State Department officials, even as threat warnings grew in the weeks before the recent attack that killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
The guards aggressive action in June came after the missions defenses and training were strengthened at the recommendation of a small team of Special Forces soldiers who augmented the missions security force for several weeks in April while assessing the compounds vulnerabilities, American officials said.
That the local security did so well back in June probably gave us a false sense of security, said one American official who has served in Libya, and who spoke on condition of anonymity because the F.B.I. is investigating the attack. We may have fooled ourselves.

The lies are getting too elaborate to even follow...But that IS what this administraion does...
according to counterterrorism and State Department officials,
So do we now believe anything they say after they have lied to us over and over?
Why would any intellignt ,”intelligence” official trust a Libyan?
Muslims cannot be trusted, it states so right in their holy book, that it is fine to lie to the infidel.They got 3 days notice at least that an action was coming and they left it up to Libyans to stop it? The certainly was “intelligent”.
Stevens was the victim of the incompetence of the Muslim Golf player,his intelligence and the deceitful peaceful Islamic killers.
so now we are supposed to believe the rioting camel humpers love our president, its just the American people they hate. Kinda like obama himself.
President Obama The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.
^How could anyone believe anything this administration says?
All the US needed to ensure safety on the ground was a few Marines. I am convinced if the terrorists arrived at the Consulate and saw that it was guarded by US Marines they would have turned around and left.
