I can certainly see how they could have missed the signs, Libya has been a stable US loving country forever. A real Homer Simpson moment for the intel community. I’m wondering if anyone has mentioned Iran is not overly fond of us either.

Clinton is either a liar or uninformed.
If she is uninformed, it's purposeful.

OBAMA'S FAILED FOREIGN POLICY (and FAILED 'Mr Bill' article!)

August 27, 2012, just fifteen days PRIOR to the 9/11 attacks. The STATE DEPARMTENT warning reads:

"The Department of State warns U.S. citizens against all but essential travel to Libya. The incidence of violent crime, especially carjacking and robbery, has become a serious problem. In addition, political violence in the form of assassinations and vehicle bombs has increased in both Benghazi and Tripoli...In addition, political violence, including car bombings in Tripoli and assassinations of military officers and alleged former regime officials in Benghazi, has increased"

and that was based on ATTACKS 5 MONTHS PRIOR IN LIBYA:

•April 10, 2012 - A convoy carrying the head of the UN mission to Libya on a visit to Benghazi is attacked with an improvised bomb. The bomb misses its target by a few meters but leaves "a small hole in the road."

•May 22, 2012 - A rocket propelled grenade is fired at the compound of the Red Cross in Benghazi.

•June 6, 2012 - A bomb is thrown at the gate outside the US Consulate in Benghazi. This is the same location where the deadly attack that killed four Americans took place on 9/11.

•June 11, 2012 - A rocket propelled grenade is fired at a convoy carrying the British ambassador as he approaches his consulate in Benghazi. The ambassador is unharmed but two bodyguards are injured.

•July 31, 2012 - Seven Red Crescent officials are kidnapped by a Benghazi militia.

•September 2, 2012 - A bomb is placed in the car of a Libyan intelligence official. It explodes on one of the busiest streets in Benghazi, killing him.

OBAMA hired a British (American entity doing business in Britian) Security Firm to work in the Libyan embassy with the caveat that NO LIVE AMMUNITION BE USED!(just put those flowers in the barrels of their guns instead)

and in Afghanistan those 'joint patrols' with Afghanis has been HALTED because those afghanis turned their AMERICAN GIVEN WEAPONS ON THE AMERICAN SOLDIERS THEY WERE 'WORKING' WITH.

It's all love and flowers instead of SENSIBLE PROTECTION FOR OUR SOLDIERS IN WAR TORN, UNSTABLE COUNTRIES.

We were told and it was ignored and 4 Americans died. Security was one Libyan and one American. Neither of the 2 Amercians that were former seals where NOT there as security. The bias media still puts the lie out there and protects Obama and Clinton. Now families have no husbands, fathers, friends, brother or sisters or sons but let's protect Obama and Clinton from answering for their calleous disregard of American lives.

This claimed by the same person who "dodged bullets" in war zones and married to Bill I Don't Know THAT Woman Clinton. It's a comedy that she was their no. 2 choice for the Oval Office.

Let's try again, Hillary. The US Diplomat didn't have property armed security detail in Libya on Barack's instructions. She assumed Libya was pro-US after Barack helped support the Arab Spring. WHAT AN IDIOT TO ASSUME THIS.

What we do know is that both Barack and Hillary surround themselves with questionable Islamic infiltrators like Valerie Jarrett. Any of these people could have leaked confidential information to the militants for the diplomat's secret location. Barack more than likely just leaves the door open to the secrets with the full knowledge that his sponsors would get to the information.

I don't understand how this is happening. Obama 'won' the Nobel Peace Prize. Evidently the radical Muslims are not aware of that feat. The entire Obama administration counted on it getting them through his presidency. Now what will they do? I would bet it has something to do with giving away another 15 or 20 billion tax dollars.
