In the aftermath of the September assault on diplomatic facilities in Libya that killed a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans, Obama administration officials falsely claimed it was a spontaneous reaction to an offensive online video, even though they had intelligence reports that the attacks were connected to terrorist groups tied to al Qaeda.


Scathing criticism from two former security officers for the U.S. mission in Libya surfaced at the close of an already-tense hearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

During that hearing, senior officials continued to play down any suggestion that additional security forces could have prevented what was described as an "unprecedented" attack on Sept. 11.

But the two security officers indicated they were butting heads with higher-ups all along to try to secure more staffing.

"We were fighting a losing battle. We couldn't even keep what we had," said Lt. Col. Andrew Wood, former head of a 16-member U.S. military team that helped protect the embassy in Tripoli.

The State Department's former regional security officer in the country, Eric Nordstrom, closed by recalling a conversation he had with a State official when asking for more agents on the ground. After being told he was asking for too much, Nordstrom recalled saying:

"'You know what (is) most frustrating about this assignment? It's not the hardships, it's not the gunfire, it's not the threats. It's dealing and fighting against the people, programs and personnel who are supposed to be supporting me.'

"And I added it by saying,'For me, the Taliban is on the inside of the building.'"

The (regional security officer) struggled to obtain additional personnel but ... was never able to attain the numbers he felt comfortable with," he said.

He told the panel that U.S. security was so weak that in April, only one U.S. diplomatic security agent was stationed in Benghazi.

Issa has alleged that the State Department turned aside pleas from its diplomats in Libya to increase security in the months and weeks before the attack in Benghazi.

Nordstrom addressed the diplomatic security issue in an Oct. 1 email to a congressional investigator. He said his requests for more security were blocked by a department policy to "normalize operations and reduce security resources."

it's a disgrace what happened to our Americans over there. Now this morning the news reported a longtime security guard was murdered in Yemen on his way to work.

I didn't explain that very well. The man was a Yemeni who had worked at the Amer Embassy in Yemen for 20 yrs. He was murdered as he was driving to work according to the news,

Oh, maybe I just didn't read it carefully enough.

So the guy was probably murdered just because of his affiliation with the American embassy.

People better wake up in this nation. The religion of Islam is vile and evil. And it's presence in the United States is becoming more pronounced every day. In fact the Muslim faith is the fastest growing religion in the United States. And their influence on American politics is also becoming more and more prevalent.
