Good article but it also misses the important part.
THIS WAS NOT A CONSULATE.
This was a meeting place for the ambassador to work WITH al Qaeda and provide material support (money and arms) to be used in Libya to overthrow Assad. This is a treasonous act!!!!!
How can our government arm the enemy of the US? This is the reason there was no real security detail. Enough troops to adequately secure the MISSION (not consulate) would have drawn attention to the facility. This was a covert operation to arm our enemies in hopes that they would take out Assad.
Wake up people!!!!!!!!
