It becomes more and more obvious that this administration showed complete incompetence at best and deliberate negligence at worst in addressing security at the Benghazi consulate. I can't image how hard it must be right now to have family serving this government in any capacity out of country with this administration in charge.

Exclusive: Classified cable warned consulate couldn't withstand 'coordinated attack'
By Catherine Herridge
Published October 31, 2012
FoxNews.com

The U.S. Mission in Benghazi convened an “emergency meeting” less than a month before the assault that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, because Al Qaeda had training camps in Benghazi and the consulate could not defend against a “coordinated attack,” according to a classified cable reviewed by Fox News.
Summarizing an Aug. 15 emergency meeting convened by the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, the Aug. 16 cable marked “SECRET” said that the State Department’s senior security officer, also known as the RSO, did not believe the consulate could be protected.
“RSO (Regional Security Officer) expressed concerns with the ability to defend Post in the event of a coordinated attack due to limited manpower, security measures, weapons capabilities, host nation support, and the overall size of the compound,” the cable said.

Maybe you guys should take a stroll past a few embassies. Heck, visit one. They are not made to withstand attacks.

Well, if it wasn't meant to withstand an attack then we should not have left our people there without security.

Not the point, we had assets available that would have stopped this.

Two squads of Marines could have stopped this.
Drones could have stopped this.
The C-130 over head could have stopped this.

The President refused to stop it.

George Bush committed high treason by starting a war against a country under false pretenses and forced 1000 of Americans to die for nothing. Nothing is better in Iraq and the war did NOTHING. Hack

I'd like to add this as well, Ignatius is an assoc. editor at the wash. Post.

Lingering questions about Benghazi

By David Ignatius,

The attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi has become a political football in the presidential campaign, with all the grandstanding and misinformation that entails. But Fox News has raised some questions about the attack that deserve a clearer answer from the Obama administration.

uh, quit believing all the talking points you have been fed. Maybe learn to do some research for yourself. That is unless you don't care for the truth due to partisan hackery.

It was the consulate, not the embassy.....

As for the rest, did you have a good 6 week nap?
