    Obama continued to blame the video weeks after the State Department and the CIA knew it was a terror attack without any reference to the video. They KNEW about the 200+ attacks on the Libya area western atargets including the embassy itself.

    Security professionals at the embassy had asked to stay stating that the violence was getting worse. The State Department dismissed these requests and took them away one month before 9/11.

    This administrating screwed up in their assessment of the needs at the embassies, their assessments of AL Qaeda and they lied to the American people about what they knew afterwards. They lied about theoir own incompetence. It cost the lives of four good men. The president called it, " a bump in the road."

    what?

    More reinforcements

    In the night, a team of reinforcements from the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli arrives on a chartered aircraft at the Benghazi airport and reaches the security compound.

    Around 4 a.m.

    The compound's building is hit by mortar fire. The roof is hit and two security personnel are killed. One agent involved in the attack from the beginning is severely wounded. The men decide to evacuate the city entirely. They spend the next hours securing the annex and moving a large convoy of vehicles to the airport. They evacuate on two flights.

    Sept. 12. The president, in the Rose Garden the day after the attack, uses the word "terror." He says: "No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done."

    Romney accuses the administration of showing weakness in the face of the attack, prompting the president to say his rival "seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later."

    The CIA station chief in Libya reports to Washington within 24 hours of the attack that there was evidence it was carried out by militants, not a spontaneous mob upset about the anti-Islam video.

    Heads will not roll in the Obama State Department, because they were simply doing Obama's bidding and were under orders to reduce the security footprint in Libya.
