Classified info at compound required U.S. Marine protection
Did the State Department under Hillary Clinton deliberately refuse to classify what has been described as sensitive information housed at the U.S. special mission in Benghazi?
The storage of any officially classified information in the compound would have required the deployment of the U.S. Marine Corps Embassy Security Group for protection.
Instead, external security at the facility was provided by unarmed local Libyan guards.
Armed members of the Martyrs of the February 17th Brigades served as the official quick-reaction force that worked within the compound. The Brigade is an offshoot of the Ansar Al Sharia terrorist organization that was implicated in the Benghazi attack.
The question of the security designation of documents and information contained at the Benghazi facility is newly prompted by a debate within the intelligence community as to why the materials were not officially classified. ...

Methinks there’s much much more to the Benghazi story then has seeped out so far.
I’m convinced that this whole episode involves weapons which were scheduled to go to the Syrian rebels and were preempted by al Qaeda backed factions which wanted the final say in where they were headed.
Quoting Hillary, “I’m not some stay-at-home-Tammy-Wynette kind of woman baking Benghazi cookies all day long.”
Don’t know if you have seen this article entitled “Operation Zero Footprint” but it is worth the read. It explains why there was no Marine Security in the compound because it was not “officially” a consulate.
It walks you through the whole sordid affair going on of illegal weapons transfer.
What responsible person in the position of President or Secretary of State would not order extra security at all foreign installations EVERY september 11?
Obama and Hillary were derict in their duty in relaxing security measures rather than providing the resources to increase security on 9/11 in 2012 as well as every other year.
We had a Private Hillary in boot camp.
Whoever the recruiter was that signed him up should have been put on KP peeling potatoes at the WH..,or shot or both. Sad work.
To use the word clueless is kind.. He lasted a few weeks,, but it was obvious, something just wasn’t right.
Oh, how I hoped we might never have to endure such feeble recruiting efforts as then.. But alas..
She has yet to testify under oath. Why?
"I can't recall."
Somehow, BUSH will get the blame again....
Yeah, I know.
Issa needs to get it in gear. Hell’s frozen over a few times already, I don’t know why he’s dragging his feet.
She had no doubt that a terrorist attack had been launched against America on the anniversary of 9/11. However, when Hillary picked up the phone and heard Obamas voice, she learned the president had other ideas in mind. With less than two months before Election Day, he was still boasting that he had al Qaeda on the run.
If the truth about Benghazi became known, it would blow that argument out of the water.
Hillary was stunned when she heard the president talk about the Benghazi attack, one of her top legal advisers said in an interview. Obama wanted her to say that the attack had been a spontaneous demonstration triggered by an obscure video on the Internet that demeaned the Prophet Mohammed.
This adviser continued: Hillary told Obama, Mr. President, that story isnt credible. Among other things, it ignores the fact that the attack occurred on 9/11. But the president was adamant. He said, Hillary, I need you to put out a State Department release as soon as possible.
I think you are very likely correct. Here is how I look at it:
1. Libyan Rebels, some AL Qaeda associated.
2. Libyan weapons
3. Likely some American weapons
6. CIA contractors
7. Syrian Rebels (many Al Qaeda associated)
We need to find out who was doing what and what weapons were going to whom.
Oh just let all of this investigation to the GOP gang! They will surely get to the bottom of it! Anyway, what difference does it make if they don't? Sadly, that's how many, many Americans feel....
I point out that Trey Gowdy has been appointed chairman of a Special Committee to investigate Ben Gazi.
IIRC, Gowdy never lost a case as a SC prosecutor.
Or perhaps the attack was financed and coordinated by agents of Syria or Iran who masked their true affiliation from the hired jihadists.
True. When was that started, May?
My point is that it’s been almost two years and former SOS Clinton has yet to testify under oath.

"Nordstrom further testified in writing that Hillary Clinton waived security requirements for the Benghazi consulate despite high and critical threat levels in the six categories of security standards established under the Overseas Security Policy Board and the Secure Embassy Construction and Counterterrorism Act of 1999. The waiver can only be authorized by the Secretary of State, who cannot delegate that responsibility to someone else. If the Secretary of State did not waive these requirements, who did so by ordering occupancy of the facilities in Benghazi and Tripoli? Nordstrom wrote."
Captain Kendra Motz, Marine Corps spokesman, told Breitbart News on Friday that she wasn't aware that the Marine Corps had issued a formal statement, but that the information included in the Powerline report was correct."The Marine Corps does not have any Marines stationed at diplomatic installations in Libya."When asked if she knew of the existence of the document outlining the State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya, she stated:"I don't, and even if I did I couldn't disclose it to you because it puts people at risk."The 50 Marines that were rushed to Libya after the murder of Ambassador Stevens are not permanently stationed at any diplomatic installation in Libya.
Can’t believe her savior Bill is not coming to her rescue. He’s letting her take all the heat and Hussein takes none. Hussein must really have something on ole Billy the way he just lays back and takes it all.
