"Ambassador Stevens twice said no to military offers of more security, U.S. officials say

WORLD NEWS LIBYA-STEVENS 3 ABA

CAIRO — In the month before attackers stormed U.S. facilities in Benghazi and killed four Americans, U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens twice turned down offers of security assistance made by the senior U.S. military official in the region in response to concerns that Stevens had raised in a still secret memorandum, two government officials told McClatchy.

Why Stevens, who died of smoke inhalation in the first of two attacks that took place late Sept. 11 and early Sept. 12, 2012, would turn down the offers remains unclear. The deteriorating security situation in Benghazi had been the subject of a meeting that embassy officials held Aug. 15, where they concluded they could not defend the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi. The next day, the embassy drafted a cable outlining the dire circumstances and saying it would spell out what it needed in a separate cable.

“In light of the uncertain security environment, US Mission Benghazi will submit specific requests to US Embassy Tripoli for additional physical security upgrades and staffing needs by separate cover,” said the cable, which was first reported by Fox News.

Army Gen. Carter Ham, then the head of the U.S. Africa Command, did not wait for the separate cable, however. Instead, after reading the Aug. 16 cable, Ham phoned Stevens and asked if the embassy needed a special security team from the U.S. military. Stevens told Ham it did not, the officials said...."

“Man must stop pollution and conserve his resources, not merely to enhance existence but to save the race from intolerable deterioration and possible extinction.”• New York Times editorial, the day after the first Earth Day
“Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.”
• Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist
“Scientists have solid experimental and theoretical evidence to support…the following predictions: In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution…by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half….”
• Life Magazine, January 1970
“At the present rate of nitrogen buildup, it’s only a matter of time before light will be filtered out of the atmosphere and none of our land will be usable.”
• Kenneth Watt, Ecologist
Stanford's Paul Ehrlich announces that the sky is falling.

The irony is that today's nanny state ninnies are as stupid and ignorant today as they were in 1970, they never change.

CAIRO — In the month before attackers stormed U.S. facilities in Benghazi and killed four Americans, U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens twice turned down offers of security assistance made by the senior U.S. military official in the region in response to concerns that Stevens had raised in a still secret memorandum, two government officials told McClatchy.
."
This is a highly questionable assertion.

"On July 9, 2012, Stevens sent a cable to State Department headquarters

requesting a minimum of 13 "Temporary Duty" (TDY) U.S. security

personnel for Libya, which he said could be made up of DS agents, DoD

Site Security Team (SST) personnel, or_some combination ofthe two. 61

These TDY security personnel were needed to meet the requested

security posture in Tripoli and Benghazi. The State Department never

fulfilled this request and, according to Eric Nordstrom, State Department

headquarters never responded to the request with a cable.
----------

In an August 16, 2012, cable to State headquarters, Stevens raised

additional concerns about the deteriorating security situation in Benghazi

following an Emergency Action Committee (EAC) meeting held on

August 15, 2012, in Benghazi. The EAC is an interagency group

convened periodically in U.S. embassies and other facilities in response

to emergencies or security matters.

this case, the head State Department officer in Benghazi, called the Principal Officer, convened

the meeting "to evaluate Post's tripwires in light of the deteriorating

security situation in Benghazi."

The cable summarizing this EAC

included the following points:

( 1) The Principal Officer "remarked that the security situation in

Benghazi was 'trending negatively"' and "that this daily pattern of

violence would be the 'new normal' for the foreseeable future,

particularly given the minimal capabilities of organizations such as

the Supreme Security Council and local police."

(2) A CIA officer "briefed the EAC on the location of approximately ten

Islamist militias and AQ training camps within Benghazi."

(3) The Principal Officer and a CIA officer "expressed concerns with the

lack of host nation security to support the U.S. Mission [facility]."

Despite the clearly deteriorating security situation in Benghazi and requests

for additional security resources, few significant improvements were made by the

State Department to the security posture of the Temporary Mission Facility.

Although the Mission facility met the minimum personnel requirements

Diplomatic Security agents as accepted by the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli at the time

of the August 15 EAC meeting (specifically, the three Diplomatic Security agents

were assigned to guard the Mission compound), the Committee found no evidence

that significant actions were taken by the State Department between August 15,

2012, and September 11, 2012, to increase security at the Mission facility in

response to the concerns raised in that meeting.
