    If facts are a problem for you then perhaps you should have stopped a long time ago. Amb. Stevens turned down two offers for more security and that's a fact, jack.

    Oh is it now....

    "One person familiar with the events said Stevens might have rejected the offers because there was an understanding within the State Department that officials in Libya ought not to request more security, in part because of concerns about the political fallout of seeking a larger military presence in a country that was still being touted as a foreign policy success.

    “The embassy was told through back channels to not make direct requests for security,” an official familiar with the case, who agreed to discuss the case only anonymously because of the sensitivity of the subject, told McClatchy."

    Read more here: CAIRO: Ambassador Stevens twice said no to military offers of more security, U.S. officials say | Middle East | McClatchy DC


    So the political pressure from State was for Stevens to NOT request more security, which falls in line with the idiotic plan to "normalize" optics so that the world would think that everything was just a peachy success after Obama's illegal war there....Do yourself a favor and stop trying to parse the impossible.

    Do you believe everyone involved at Benghazi was killed?

    It looks like five guys held off the attack at the CIA annex. Three more fighters (shooters) would have helped. But the real problem was the failure to send air support. The mortar attack killed two and seriously injured a third fighter.

    The politicization of the attacks on Benghazi is BS. It's right up there with the Birthers and Truthers. Now there's the Benghazianiacs to add to the growing list of nutballs.
    Spoken like a true Hillary voter nut ball! I hope the truth actually comes out about this!
