"As the ambassador was killed, it appears that his request was justified. The State Dept had a duty to meet the request, as they have a duy to meet every request. Your dismissive comments, in light of events, are offensive. " No, they are not. The State Department is mandated to do no such thing. They made a judgement call, it may have been the wrong one. But people are not infallible, especially in foreign policy situations as difficult/delicate as this one.

The state department pulled the 16 man security team out of Benghazi in August, in the face of numerous requests for MORE security.

Mitt Romney shared a remarkable story at a campaign rally in Iowa today, his voice wavering and cracking slightly as he described the tragic death of a former Navy SEAL he'd met years earlier.  The young man was from Massachusetts; he died in Benghazi during the September 11 terrorist attack against the American consulate that claimed the life of US Ambassador Chris Stevens.  Here is Mitt's stirring and moving tribute:
