Well, to take a cold assessment of the facts for this... As I understand it, it went something like this for time line to really matter.
- A few months prior to the attack, the side wall was blown out of the compound. The guy who did it was video taped driving away while the private
security (militia) hired to defend simply watched very carefully and recorded every detail ....while diligently writing it all down, of course and
being precise, I'm sure. Doing nothing...whatsoever..else to stop the explosive from being planted. The people who did that used a name for credit
which roughly translates as 'Free Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman." They really want him back, it seems, as Morsi of Egypt also talked about getting him
released. I'm kinda sensitive to this because the Sheikh of Honor has been housed just miles from me and it's not lost on me that someone may be dumb
enough to try to get him out some day. No telling these days.
- That night, the ambassador sent the good night telegram to Tripoli that all was quiet and he was headed to bed, then all hell broke loose an hour or
so later with the compound being overrun and totally destroyed by midnightish. The one staffer having texted out that he recognized one of the
attackers as security. I assume the pics of the vehicle awash with blood inside and the hand print on the pillar belong to the kid....but we may never
know for sure.
- The attack followed the group from the Dipo compound to the Annex (CIA) and the battle really pissing everyone off was fought there. That is where
the former Seals were killed, defending the 20+ civilians they rescued out of the Dipo compound and however many were with them, then inside the CIA
Annex. THAT one, plenty of time existed to have gotten help there if they'd started moving at the time the first strike came against the State
The CIA Annex was VERY different in layout and obviously thought to things like....surviving anything beyond a peaceful protest. (CIA isn't stupid and
they don't take 'we can't afford that' for crappy security, like State does) Where the Dipo compound looked like a small vineyard you might find
outside Napa Valley for goodness sakes.. lol.. Still, they didn't hit the CIA until the evacuation that was ordered not to happen, moved all those
people from State property to CIA by the timelines I've ever seen.
You'd have thought they'd hit CIA first....but nope. They followed something, is my guess. Something that probably has a lot to do with this whole
event. I just can't figure out if they got it before the attack broke off and Tripoli help came around first light.
