    A source familiar with Stevens' thinking told CNN earlier this week that, in the months leading up to his death, the late ambassador worried about what he called the security threats in Benghazi and a rise in Islamic extremism.
    A bump in the road Mr. President?

    You're not supposed to talk about that. It makes The O look bad.

    I thought it was the video that was the main cause of all this.
    Not Obama skipping out on his intelligence briefings or the total
    incompetence of the State Department and intelligence community.:redface:

    And double shame on State and the CIA for not clearing the embassy of sensitive material before CNN reporters walked through.

    What else was there? Who got into the building before CNN?

    how the heck did a news reporter find his journal in the first place....?

    i thought the Administration was conducting an investigation.....so why wasn't everything related to the incident secured for investigation....?

    talk about sloppy.....

    The WH is outraged about CNN publishing excerpt from the diary without the family's permission, but they are apparently untroubled by their failure to provide the security that might have saved his life.

    They are deflecting as usual...making hay to cover the fact that on 9/11 and apparent information that the Ambassador was troubled and even felt he was on a "Hit List" that more protection was not offered to the embassy and the Ambassador. An outrageous failure of this administration! Four good men dead.
