The diary of the late Ambassador Stevens, assassinated in Benghazi reveals his concerns over security. Apparently the State Department and President Obama did not share his concerns.

The diary belonging to Ambassador Chris Stevens revealed his concerns about the deteriorating security in Benghazi.

CNN reported:

Four days after he was killed, CNN found a journal belonging to late U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens. The journal was found on the floor of the largely unsecured consulate compound where he was fatally wounded…

…A source familiar with Stevens’ thinking told CNN earlier this week that, in the months leading up to his death, the late ambassador worried about what he called the security threats in Benghazi and a rise in Islamic extremism.

Stevens died on September 11, along with three other Americans, when the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi came under attack amid a large protest about a U.S.-made film that mocked the Muslim Prophet Mohammed.

Since June there had been four previous attacks on Western interests in Benghazi.

One of the attacks was an IED atack at the US Consulate on June 6, 2012.

Yet, despite this, the Obama Administration reportedly refused to provide even “standard security” at the consulate compound.

  1. "Instead, the US consulate was guarded externally by a force of local Libyan militia, many of whom reportedly put down their weapons and fled once the mission came under concerted attack."

    Seems to be a difference of facts here. FOX, NBC, CBS and more have reported that the Libyan militia started the firefight after being provoked by the mob, and they fought gallantly defending the consulate.
    There is no information that Stevens requested better security, and the article does not state that.
    As we work our way up to blaming Mrs. Clinton for these murders, let the facts speak, not inconclusive news reports like this one.
