If there was no Consolate, what did they bomb? He was in the Embassy in Bengazi, you're an idiot. The CIA asked for help three times and it was refused. Obama knew about the attack two minutes after it started. It's Military protocol that says the president MUST be notified within 90 seconds if an Ambassador is in peril. an Ambassador is considered the Presidents representative in that Country and is as high as any official in government. Obama was telling the Muslims he will allow them to kill Americans at will. If they can kill an Ambassador, then everybody is game.
