    Libya: We gave US three-day warning of Benghazi attack

    American diplomats were warned of possible violent unrest in Benghazi three days before the killings of US Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three members of his team, Libyan security officials say.

    The claim came as the country's interim President, Mohammed el-Megarif, said his government had information that the attack on the US consulate had been planned by an Islamist group with links to al-Qa'ida and with foreigners taking part.'

    Arrogance and complacency on the part of both have proven to be a deadly combination.

    A good question might be, why was the Ambassador in Benghazai. It's not exactly known as the safest location.

    Because he lies as a matter of course and the media is perfectly good with their stained blue dress.

    Because it was his job? Because he wasn't a coward? Because he was an admirable man and strongly believed in something?

    I think they call it "flight or fight" some people flee at signs of trouble, others take those issues head on. Which option to you prefer?

    He's lying because otherwise he'd have to acknowledge that he screwed up in not making sure our installations were protected.

    Ambassador Stevens employer the Obama Administration didn't provide appropriate security at the Benghazai Consulate.

    It is not an Ambassador's "job" to engage in a fire fight with jihadists.
