    The embassy said the attack would not affect the U.S. commitment to Libya.

    No one has claimed responsibility for the attack, but it comes less than 24 hours after CNN terrorism analyst Paul Cruickshank predicted such an event in retaliation for the death of a top al Qaeda leader.

    A previously unknown group called the Brigades of Omar Abdel Rahman reportedly claimed responsibility for a May 22 grenade attack on an International Committee of the Red Cross building in Benghazi, which is in eastern Libya.....snip~

    They also attempted to kill the Brits Ambassador when he was in a Motorcade.
    If a gate was blown open with an IED, would your first reaction be, "We need to reinforce these windows!"?

    The Republicans did come up with a viable candidate this time around. It remains to be seen, however, whether they have enough credibility left with the voters to get him elected.


    What changes the fact.....that HIS team was wrong from the get go about how they wanted to proceed with foreign policy?

    And Condoleezza Rice was Sec. of State when the embassy was approved and opened, and she did nothing, either. Why would Hilary have any more information/fault than C.R. did?

    Well considering they left 1000s of leaflets saying they would be back.....how does this change the fact that the place came under attack? Also with the Brits Ambassador nearly escaping with his life in the same month and at the same time?

    Does the US not keep records of embassy contruction and maintenance?

    Again what don't you get about Hillary Clinton setting up the place after Gadhafi was killed? So that Stevens wasnt staying in a hotel.....where he could be taken out at any time.

    You're right, I apologize. They most likely do, but that doesn't change the fact that the Embassy was not opened under the Obama Administration, why would he be concerned about that specific Embassy?

    The Embassy was opened in 2006. Hilary didn't set anything up.
