    Sadly Obama hasn't attended any of his briefings in awhile so the warnings went unheeded.

    Revealed: inside story of US envoy's assassination - World Politics - World - The Independent


    According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and "lockdown", under which movement is severely restricted.

    I do agree with you with that, hindsite is a lot easier to decipher. Just like this thread where Bush could have prevented the 9-11, I feel the same with that.

    I heard a liberal talking head mention today that Obama is just so brilliant, he doesn't need these briefings. He just knows things. Enough to make you throw up, isn't it?

    So, there was enough time to warn of the attack and maybe give the guards some guns.

    If the attack had been averted, some innocent people would be alive. I haven't heard the terrorists say that the attack was due to the film. I am wondering just who started that.

    Except that there was no history of judgement for that situation.
