The real facts are beginning to surface, apparently much to the chagrin of the Obama administration ....... regarding the details of the security or lack thereof provided to our people in Libya which lead to 4 American deaths, including Ambassador Stevens.
Army green beret, Lt. Colonel Andrew Wood who will tell his story to Congress on Wednesday, sat for CBS This Morning and in summary he said:
- from the moment he arrived in February, he saw "chaos"
- local security guard forces were unreliable - there were battles between militias, there was criminal activity
- he met daily with Ambassador Stevens and he was very concerned about security for himself and his staff
Most damning was his statements that there was a "visible security drawdown while he was in Libya" - due to "Pressure from the higher headquarters at the State Department."He continued with "There was pressure to reduce the number of security people there."http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-18563_16...sulate-attack/
He said that "Over the six months leading up to the attack on Stevens, the security situation in Libya deteriorated".
He added that "Stevens and his staff made the case for tightened security in emails and diplomatic cables" - instead of more or tighter security, "one by one they lost three State Department security teams, their only airplane and, eventually, Woods' squad too.
Not a good story as if true, there was an ongoing clear signal for more security and the opposite was done and lead to the needless deaths of americans
