That is not what the news coming out this morning says. And I have been reading around today. It appears that there is a large CIA presence in
Libya, albeit covert, which would mean that the security at the Benghazi compound was the responsibility of the State Department. From what I am
seeing there are also privatized security forces. It is a freakin mess over there. There are different militias and tribes they are very distrustful
of the new governments that are currently being formed.
Now what looks REAL bad is how they lied and tried to spin this attack as a response to that stupid anti-muslim film. That blew up in their faces. I
don't claim that no one in the administration is fudging on this for all I know it could have been an orchestrated hit on Stevens by members of his
Around 9:40 p.m. local time, the C.I.A. base received the first of several calls from the mission saying it was under attack. During the 25 minutes
between the first call and when the officers rolled out the door, half a dozen security officers were readying their gear and weapons, while the base
chief called several Libyan militias, seeking fighters with heavy weaponry to defend the mission. His appeals failed.
Over the next 25 minutes, C.I.A. officers approached the walled diplomatic compound, tried to secure heavy weapons, and made their way onto the
compound itself in the face of enemy fire.
At 11:11 p.m., the Predator drone arrived over the mission compound. Within 20 minutes, all United States personnel, except for Mr. Stevens, whom the
American security officers could not find in the chaos, left the mission, coming under fire as they did.
