Prior to the attack that claimed the lives Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods there were 11 terror related attacks in Libya and 6 occurred in Benghazi. This was a very active hot spot so if something happened on 9/11, it is not a one off incident. Why was there no additional security especially after it was asked for?

• On May 22, assailants launched a rocket-propelled grenade at the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC)’s building in Benghazi. The violent Islamist extremist group Brigades of Captive Omar Abdul Rahman claimed responsibility for the attack. The ICRC evacuated Benghazi in mid-July.

• On June 6, violent extremists attacked the U.S. facilities in Benghazi with an improvised explosive device (IED). The group claimed that the attack was in retaliation for the assassination of Abu-Yahya al-Libi, the second highest ranking leader of al-Qa’ida.

• On June 11, a convoy carrying the British Ambassador to Libya was attacked in Benghazi.

• In August, there was a series of attacks against security personnel and facilities, including the bombing of the Benghazi military intelligence offices on August 1...

• On August 10, Army General Hadiya al-Feitouri was assassinated in Benghazi.

• On August 20, a car belonging to an Egyptian diplomat was blown up near his home in Benghazi.

This was not about a was a war and when needed, the administration did nothing. How could these prior attacks have not been a red flag to make sure, if nothing else, there was always someone on standby for assistance like the group that was not allowed to go that ?

It was no secret the compound was attacked prior to 9/11/12. In fact, the terrorists would follow Stevens and take pictures of him during his morning jobs and then post the pix and threats on Facebook for all to see, even threatening to attack for 9/11's anniversary. The compound itself had its walls blown up while also having bombs thrown from moving cars at its gates. This is why they requested security from the state department, only to be denied.

So when Washington DC claims they didn't know if the attack was from make believe protesters or actual terrorists they are full of spit. They knew the place was already under attack/threat and they also watched the attack live via their drones. Libya was and still is infested with terrorist. Terrorist were among the rebel ranks and once NATO overthrew Gaddafi the terrorist flood gates were ripped open.

Libya is a hell hole because of this.
