Our 4 murdered Americans in Benghazi. Stevens, Doherty, Woods, and Smith

*A Post From Patricia*

This administration is directly responsible for the death of four diplomats and border agent Brian Terry. Nixon was a crook but killed no one. I hope and pray the American People kick him out in November and, God Help Us, if not: impeach when we take the House and Senate.

U.S. diplomats in Libya repeatedly asked the Obama administration for more security in Benghazi in the run-up to the Sept. 11 attack on the consulate but were “denied these resources,” two congressional lawmakers said.

House oversight committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, pressed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for more information on those requests and other concerns in a letter Tuesday.

They detailed a string of attacks and other security incidents in Benghazi starting in April, and asked the State Department what measures it took to address the threat. They claimed officials have told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee of “repeated requests” for additional security.

“Based on information provided to the committee by individuals with direct knowledge of events in Libya, the attack that claimed the ambassador’s life was the latest in a long line of attacks on Western diplomats and officials in Libya in the months leading up to September 11, 2012,” they wrote. “In addition, multiple U.S. federal government officials have confirmed to the committee that, prior to the September 11 attack, the U.S. mission in Libya made repeated requests for increased security in Benghazi. The mission in Libya, however, was denied these resources by officials in Washington.”

    And I am, once more, unsurprised at these events. This is the same Administration that came forward with the idea for a Medal for NOT shooting at the enemy. This is the same Administration that has allowed more deaths of troops in the last 4 years in Afghanistan, than the entire fight from October 07 2001-January 21 2009. Who “Surged” Afghanistan and then refused to allow troops to do more than patrol their FoBs and look for IEDs and then wondered why we didn’t have the same results as in Iraq. And by doing so we have given these chuckleheads a foothold. We have allowed the Taliban and Al-Quida the ability to come back into areas that we had driven them out of and kept them out of. In the wake of this we have seen reprisal killings, the returned oppression of the women and girls in these areas and renewed attacks against our forces.

    Update: State Department stayed out of contractors’ dispute over consulate security, letters show. Letters obtained exclusively by Fox News appear to show the State Department refused to get involved when the company tasked with protecting the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, raised security concerns, the latest indication that warning signs may have been ignored in the lead-up to last month’s terror attack.

    The letters pertain to a dispute between Blue Mountain Libya, the security license holder in Libya, and its operations partner Blue Mountain UK, which trained and provided the local guards.

    A source with knowledge of two State Department meetings — one in June and a second in July — told Fox News that Blue Mountain Libya felt the security provided by the UK partner was “substandard and the situation was unworkable.”

    But according to the source, when the Libyans tried to bring in a third party — an American contractor — to improve security, a State Department contract officer declined to get involved.

    The autopsy had to have been completed weeks ago. Was our ambassador tortured? Was he raped? (torture, to be sure.) Was he gay?

    Where are the gays in all of this??? Should we not be outraged at sending a gay man to the Mideast, where gays are target for death regardless of nationality? Where are the demands for complete truth??

    Where is the outrage at our cold-blooded Obama who goes fundraising and partying and — according to some reports — went TO BED as Americans, for whom he was pretty directly responsible for, were dying????
