"The US State Department said it had asked Libyan authorities to increase security around US facilities."

""We deplore the attack on our diplomatic mission in Benghazi," State Department spokesman Mark Toner told a news briefing."

"Toner said a local guard reported that an attack was underway against one of the Benghazi compound's perimeter walls and warned diplomatic staff to take cover."

"The bombing will revive concerns about the lack of security in Libya..."

"The fragile government is still struggling to restore stability after the revolt and arms and explosives looted from Gaddafi's arsenals are easily available."

"Toner said WASHINGTON WAS AWAITING RESULTS FROM AN INVESTIGATION BY THE LIBYAN GOVERNMENT, but had NO REASON TO SUSPECT the attack was retaliation for Libi's killing."

"Some security analysts disagreed: "The possibility that this act took place because of what happened to Abu Yahya is, in my personal opinion, a very strong one," said Noman Benotman, a Libyan former Islamist who is now an expert on militant groups."

""Al Qaeda loyalists maybe wanted to deliver a message to the US ...to say enough is enough," he said."

The State Department treated the bombing as a criminal matter and relied on the recently installed National Transitional Government to conduct an investigation plus supply security. The government had it's hands full trying to stabilize the area, they were so short of police they used ex-terrorits turned "freedom fighters" to guard the city. The eastern area was/is full of terrorists and that's where the US Consul was located yet the State Department treated it like it everything was stable. It's clear that they had the same mind-set on the 9-11-12 bombing.

Who was providing on the ground American Intel? Who were the 30'ish CIA agents at the other location working for...? Why weren't they be contacted to provide answers - (we were told they were too scattered)? Were they INTEL NGO's working for the International Crisis Group (ICG)? Were they contracted by the State Department? Thomas Pickering who is heading up the "Accountability Review" is Chairman of the ICG.

Don't worry! Obama knows what is responsible!

He immediately attacked the guilty party!
