The killings of the US ambassador to Libya and three of his staff were likely to have been the result of a serious and continuing security breach, The Independent can reveal.
American officials believe the attack was planned, but Chris Stevens had been back in the country only a short while and the details of his visit to Benghazi, where he and his staff died, were meant to be confidential.
I think this story tells it all... our government is corrupt.
If this can happen and the president gives no security to any officials, we will not get any at home.
This is a police state!
we live in a oxymoron world, and I believe that the truth is what you search for,
believe what the world wants you to and you will be no better tomorrow than you were yesterday. Today you find your own truth and you wont need the Goverment to warn you. YOU WILL KNOW.
Private security, for example, would not have been a good option for Benghazi, Linvill said, especially when you consider the history of Libya. This is a country whose people just fought a war against a man who used mercenaries to oppress them. Libyans have not forgotten the Italian colonial period of the 1920s and ’30s, when they were put into concentration camps and executed. One of Col. Muammar Gaddafi’s most effective pieces of propaganda was convincing people that all foreign colonial presence is bad. Bringing in Blackwater-style security forces was never on the table in Benghazi, because State believed it essential that the Libyan government see Americans as a welcome presence there—as liberators, if you will.

That link is gone now.....thanks for posting this though.
Last week a news report here in the UK was talking about this, they said that the fact that they were found in the supposedly secret safe house, which apparently is up to a mile, showed that there was an info leak from within the staff.
