Apparently we were wrong last week when we posted that the Obama Administration has 48 hours advance notice of a possible attack on the consulate in Benghazi and failed to warn the staff, Ambassador Stevens, or take security precautions.
It was three full days:
Three days before the deadly assault on the United States consulate in Libya, a local security official says he met with American diplomats in the city and warned them about deteriorating security.
Jamal Mabrouk, a member of the February 17th Brigade, told CNN that he and a battalion commander had a meeting about the economy and security.
He said they told the diplomats that the security situation wasn’t good for international business.
“The situation is frightening, it scares us,” Mabrouk said they told the U.S. officials. He did not say how they responded.
Barack Hussein Obama was willing to risk the lives of American diplomatic staff in order to keep up an appearance that his foreign policy in the “Arab Spring” nations was not a complete and dismal failure.
Four Diplomats died, and eight were wounded as a result.
