SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL:...I neglected to mention from the top that that agent from the top of this incident, or the very beginning of this incident, has been on the phone. He had called the quick reaction security team, he had called the Libyan authorities, he had called the Embassy in Tripoli, and he had called Washington.
Thanks for that link. Does it seem to you that they are claiming that 30 people escaped in one armored vehicle?
The description of a traffic jam that they said was customary for that time of night near the compound - how does that jive with the claims now that roadblocks had been set up?
The gate - was nobody manning the gate? They’ve got these concrete walls with razor wire and such, and yet these people were able to just come in through the gate? This picture just doesn’t add up. A bunch of people carrying containers of deisel fuel were able to just walk through the gate? Wasn’t the gate closed? Were these thugs able to shoot open the gate, or what?
