    It becomes more and more obvious that this administration showed complete incompetence at best and deliberate negligence at worst in addressing security at the Benghazi consulate. I can't image how hard it must be right now to have family serving this government in any capacity out of country with this administration in charge.

    Exclusive: Classified cable warned consulate couldn't withstand 'coordinated attack'

    The U.S. Mission in Benghazi convened an “emergency meeting” less than a month before the assault that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, because Al Qaeda had training camps in Benghazi and the consulate could not defend against a “coordinated attack,” according to a classified cable reviewed by Fox News.
    Summarizing an Aug. 15 emergency meeting convened by the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, the Aug. 16 cable marked “SECRET” said that the State Department’s senior security officer, also known as the RSO, did not believe the consulate could be protected.
    “RSO (Regional Security Officer) expressed concerns with the ability to defend Post in the event of a coordinated attack due to limited manpower, security measures, weapons capabilities, host nation support, and the overall size of the compound,” the cable said.

    Maybe you guys should take a stroll past a few embassies. Heck, visit one. They are not made to withstand attacks.
