ABC News is now ginning up an allegation that the State Department denied a request for additional Security by the Libyan embassy - and suggesting that in some way the Obama Administration bears some responsibilty for the death of Ambassdor Stevens and 3 others as a result of the Beghazi attack last month.
ABC News has obtained an internal State Department email from May 3, 2012, indicating that the State Department denied a request from the security team at the Embassy of Libya to retain a DC-3 airplane in the country to better conduct their duties.
Let's read that again carefully....
...denied a request from the security team at the Embassy of Libya to retain a DC-3 airplane
So really this wasn't a denial of Security, it was a denial of a request to keep a Plane they had been using 6 months previously when there was NO AIR TRAFFIC in Libya.
So exactly how does the lack of this plane mean that the Obama Administration was lackadaisacal about Security?
