    Some information; some of it proven some of it just making the rounds:

    FACT: The Seals were not assigned to the US Mission and to protect Stevens. They were in the area, heard what was going on at the Mission and jumped in to defend it.

    FACT: The people who were assigned to protect the Mission were from Great Britain, (Wales), and were private contractors.


    They were chosen because they were willing to take the assignment while using unloaded weapons, a modifed rule of engagement dictated by the State Department for this post. They might also have been chosen for their British accents.
    The Company's name which provided the security is "Blue Mountain Group"

    This could explain a couple of things. Anyone speaking with an American accent is at risk in large areas of the Middle East (among them Egypt and Libya) while British English speakers are definitelely less at risk. Reporters in the region understand that to have an American accent makes them vulnerable. I heard this from a reporter very recently speaking from Egypt.

    This turns out to be perfect for the Al Quaeda attackers, because they had the leverage of life on the Blue Mountain guys.

    So these British speaking guys from Wales were willing to provide security with unloaded weapons. The Al Quaeda terrorists knew this, and allowed the Blue Mountain people to live if they betrayed the American Embassador. In reality they couldn't resist at all anyway, nor even in reality defend themselves. They sold out the Americans to save their own hides.

    Who the hell puts any security personel in any position in the ME with unloaded guns??

    Good God. Talk about stupid assholes. The State Department idiot who issued those orders should be shot him or herself.

    Talk about ludicrous.

    From what I gather, Hillary Clinton had something to do with policy there.

    Assistant Apologizer-in-Chief Clinton is responsible.

    Why am I not surprised.

    Those State Department idiots are really idiots.

    If Hillary issued those orders then she's respnsible for those deaths. I'm sure that won't bother her at all. Absurd.

    Some of this is framed in Stevens personal note book which now is in the hands of CNN. Stevens mentioned in his notebook that he felt his life was at risk in Benghazi, and knowing the situation with the security arrangement helps explain.

    This was an open invitiation to Al Quaeda.

    People ask why the administration keeps saying things like the President did today at the UN, that "America had nothing to do with that video" while Jake Carney still says that "It is self-evident that what happened in Benghazi was a terrorist attack"

    So why do they keep blaming the video? Because that is what will survive as the narrative in the minds of the uninformed public. And when the issue gets hotter from Republicans complaining and Fox News Channel reporting, they'll just say to themselves "there they go, attacking the president again"

    This administration has an awful lot to answer for regarding the attacks.
    But you will not see anyone from the media go after this administration.

    Their concern is getting Obama elected again.
    Focusing on Romney and his face tanning and all sorts of Bullshit.
