he blundering boobs at the State Department recalled a 16-man security team in August just as the Libyan diplomats were asking for more security, not less. CBS: CBS News has learned that congressional investigators have issued a subpoena to a former top security official at the US mission in Libya. The official is Lt. Col. Andy Wood, a Utah National Guard Army Green Beret who headed up a Special Forces "Site Security Team" in Libya. The subpoena compels Lt. Col. Wood to appear at a House Oversight Committee hearing next week that will examine security decisions leading up to the Sept. 11 Muslim extremist terror assault on the U.S. compound at Benghazi. U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three of his colleagues were killed in the attack. Lt. Col. Wood has told CBS News and congressional investigators that his 16-member team and a six-member State Department elite force called a Mobile Security Deployment team left Libya in August, just one month before the Benghazi assault. Wood says that's despite the fact that US officials in Libya wanted security increased, not decreased. Wood says he met daily with Stevens and that security was a constant challenge. There were 13 threats or attacks on western diplomats and officials in Libya in the six months leading up to the September 11 attack. A senior State Department official told CBS News that half of the 13 incidents before September 11 were fairly minor or routine in nature, and that the Benghazi attack was so lethal and overwhelming, that a diplomatic post would not be able to repel it.

One must deduce that Obama and Clinton reduced security in Libya so that Amb Stevens could be assasinated by al-Queda mercenaries armed with US heavy weapons, then blame it on a YouTube, so they could stage an attack on internal US First Amendments freedoms. Who would have thought they are so evil as to resort to murdering a diplomat?
You mean the next (second) debate which will cover both foreign policy and domestic issues. I hope Romney also brings up the total chaos in our southern border security and the state of the Mexican government which is being overrun by the drug cartels.
They figured they could, with the help of the media, keep it covered up until after the election. After the election, they don't care what comes out.
This should make debate prep interesting for both sides.
Thank goodness for Fox, internet and alternative media. Twenty years ago Barky WOULD have been able to cover this up completely with the help of the media.
