Let me see if I understand this...
According to internal State Department emails obtained by the LA Times on April 6, 2012 Libyan security guards assigned to protect the US compound in Benghazi attempted to detonate a bomb in said compound.
The ambassador requested US security forces and was denied by Washington who said that they were to rely on Libyan security forces for protection...the same type that attempted to blow up the compound? Those who attempted the bombing were released within a week by law "enforcement" officials, but the security guard that fired a warning round in the air to stop them was prosecuted. All this happened before the September 11 attack that killed 4 Americans.
My question: What on earth would lead the administration to believe that
we could trust Libyan security forces to protect our people over there
after all this information?
On September 11th a military strike by Libyans was launched against our compound there killing four Americans including our ambassador J Christopher Stevens.
We have photographic evidence of who led the attack against the US Benghazi compound but we are prevented from doing anything about it and the Libyan officials have not issued any sort of arrest warrant or anything close. Our own investigators were not allowed to enter the compound until three weeks after the attack well after all evidence has gone cold.
I repeat: what on earth would lead the administration to believe that
we could trust Libyan security forces to protect our people? This is foolishness and in this case it got people killed.
