ABC News has obtained a State Department e-mail denying a request from the security team at the embassy in Libya for a DC-3 aircraft. It is debatable if the availability of this DC-3 would have made a difference when the consulate in Benghazi was attacked.
The issue at hand is whether or not officials at the State Department were aware of the worsening security situation in Libya as a whole and specifically in Benghazi. The Benghazi area has been a hot bed of terrorist activity, with many of the Qaeda affiliated malitias headquarter in the region.
There are many questions to be answered about the events leading up to the attack and the apparent lack of action by the State Department security office. I have to question why after the attack the scene was never secured. How can there be a proper investigation, when the scene has been trampled on and potential evidence removed, such as the Ambassador's journal?
The families of those murdered and the American people have a right to know!
