Skip to comments.Email shows State Department rejecting Libyan embassy security assistance
Posted on 10/05/2012 7:06:00 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Recall that the State Department has denied that there were any requests for additional security.
ABC News has obtained an internal State Department email from May 3, 2012, indicating that the State Department denied a request from the security team at the Embassy of Libya to retain a DC-3 airplane in the country to better conduct their duties.
Copied on the email was U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was killed in a terrorist attack on the diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, Sept. 11, 2012, along with three other Americans. That attack has prompted questions about whether the diplomatic personnel in that country were provided with adequate security support.
No one has yet to argue that the DC-3 would have definitively made a difference for the four Americans killed that night. The security team in question, after all, left Libya in August.
But the question - both for the State Department, which is conducting an internal investigation, and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which is holding hearings next week - is whether officials in Washington, D.C., specifically at the State Department, were as aware as they should have been about the deteriorating security situation in Libya, and whether officials were doing everything they could to protect Americans in that country.

SOOOO, were they set up to be “executed”?
Who leaked this to ABC? Someone not in either Obama’s or Hillary’s camp? Whose camp then? Perhaps maybe people fed up with business as usual when 4 Americans are dead? /rhetorical
Hillary to Benghazi Ambassador: "Get F****d"
Path to 9-11-12
We’re both getting too old. You for posting the terse “Ford to New York: ‘Drop Dead’” and me for instantly recalling the NY dailies 72pt screaming headlines.
Probably have folks scratching their heads wondering WTH is he talking about?
If Bush had been president he would have been accused of deliberately not giving protection to our ambassador because he disaproved of his sexual orientation!
I am not kidding.
Maybe they could have used a ‘36 Ford for a quick escape too.
Puff the magic dragon??????
The only DC-3 that immediately comes to mind that might be useful in that context is the military version, a C-47 gunship from the Viet Nam era. But Spooky isn’t as useful as guns on the ground.
Yesterday there was a headline mentioning that top secret documents were left strewn on the floor in Benghazi. No one had bothered to pick them up. Maybe that’s where the media is getting info. Wonder what happened to the computers there, I’m assuming there WERE computers.
Hillary washing the Ambassador’s and our Seal’s blood off her hands??
I have personally seen a fleet of them sitting at San Juan PR airport...
Somebody in the State Department who's really really angry that Zero and Hill's bumbling got a career officer killed.
