No Shots Fired: State Dept Benghazi Security Force Unarmed
Big Peace ^ | Monday, December 10, 2012 | Kerry Picket

Posted on 12/10/2012 7:11:49 PM PST by kristinn

A source with personal knowledge of the security situation in Benghazi told Breitbart News that Senators who listened to closed door testimony about the Benghazi attack were shocked to learn State Department security personnel agents were not immediately armed.

Additionally, agents separated from Ambassador Chris Stevens left to retrieve their M4 weapons in a separate building. Only one returned to protect the Ambassador, while the other two hunkered down in the barracks, the source relayed.

“From the accounts I read, those guys were not ready. When the attack came that night, they had to go back to the other room and grab their weapons. Then the worse part about it was they never even returned to be with the Ambassador. One returned to be with the Ambassador with his rifle. The other two went back to where there were [sic] barracks. And two stayed in that same building where there were radios and other weapons and the safe and other stuff was there.

There were no shots fired in return. On the embassy property, just the embassy property, none of those security agents blasted a single bullet from a single pistol or rifle at all in defense of the Ambassador—nothing.”

Questions as to why the consulate security force was unarmed within the confines of the consulate will likely be asked of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. She will be appearing in front of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs according to Chairwoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL).

They knew that morning they were being cased--on the anniversary of 9/11 in a town they knew had al Qaeda elements. And yet they were unarmed.

They only imperative of the Obama, the DNC,
and Congress has been to arm terrorists coming
into the borders, and to give 20,000 MANPADs
to terrorists to shoot down 20,000 airplanes.

The Press is on the side of the terrorists.

One could not have fantasized this 10 years ago.

When the State Dept. originally did the hiring for those Bengazi guard positions they asked that...

1. the candidates be gay
2. handy with small arms
3. arabic speaking
4. willing to work for $13,000 per year

Do you realize just HOW out of touch these people...?

And Holder’s DOJ gave hiring advantages to insane dwarves.

I’m completely serious.

I have this thing in my head...I call it my rolodex for want of a better descriptive term. I keep these things in there and go through them mentally sort of like total recall down to the most minute details. The more info that becomes available, the more clarified the horrific end game becomes.
The evil that these bastiches do will live long, long after them and there is NO good to be interred with their bones.

...Senator Feinstein (D-CA) was very inquisitive as to what in the Hell was going on,” the source said.

“She wanted to know did they issue orders for [the security agents] not to shoot. Now they denied that to her in that meeting and they said, ‘No, we never did that. We never did that. We never issued orders that they should do that.’ ”

...The other agents retrieved their M4 submachine guns and other tactical gear from Building B. When they attempted to return to the main building, they encountered armed attackers and doubled back to Building B,” Lamb added.

Hmmm...
That was my first question too.

Hillary thinks she is going to testify and then slip away for Christmas vacation, followed shortly after by a 2-3 month rest.

Most in our country are still having difficulty imaging anything worse of the Obama Adm than “naive thinking,” “poor leadership,” and “failed foreign policy.”

Someone needs to answer:

Why weren't our men rescued?

Where was the military?
Don't they have forces that can respond immediately to attacks upon our ambassador?

What happened, when and who gave what orders?

i’m missing something. Where do the 2 former Seals Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty fit in here ? (or do they?) Weren’t they supposedly firing a machine gun ?

This freaking narrative must be coming from a shape-shifter.

Ambassador Stevens was NOT in an embassy or a consulate......

Was it a “mission”? From what I have read, it was not listed as a property of the State Department.

What was it? It was a CIA front operation that the ambassador was waiste deep in.

Make a pact with the devil (the camp) and you always loose.

The Media will never tell the truth, nor will Obozo. Obozo is a Lying Commie B—ard and he serves the father-of-lies.

HOWEVER, a whole passel full of people that should be talking are the most conspicuous with their collective silence screaming out.

As I seem to recall, she is very good at saying, "I don't recall."

One can’t help but wonder a little bit what the media reaction would have been if Nixon, Reagan, or Bush would have called the dead body of an ambassador “A bump on the road”. Where are the modern day Woodward & Bernsteins?

One of the media’s primary duties if a free society is to endure is to keep the politicians feet to the fire. Our media is AWOL.

This does not surprise me, when National Guard is put on the border to assist they are NOT armed either...makes NO sense.
