They had weapons Flack along with plenty o cash because that's how they roll. Matter of fact, they had their own weapons and those left behind by the Brits when the Brits concluded that Benghazi was going to turn to shyte. They had vehicles including a couple of armored ones.<quoted text> If they were indeed CIA agents and they got their hat handed to them that makes it even worse. The CIA was in an operation in a hostile country and they had no weapons or back-up plan? They had no Calvary over the hill waiting? Even though there had been attacks and rumors of more to come? Hell! That's worse than a spontaneous mob upset over some unknown film. Keep digging maybe you'll find the right answer sooner or later. I think it's too late though.
The CIA seldom has the cavalry waiting over the hill buddy, they go it alone with operatives and contractors earning mega bucks tax free all around the world. One of the deceased, Doherty, has been "privately employed" in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Yemen.
Perhaps you can't grasp why Al Qaida or other Islamic terror groups would attack a known CIA or other US Intel base.
