I think, as many of us do after a fact, plan first to avoid a repeat, find out why it happened, look for the murderers, rethink our position in "friendly enemies" countries. Actually, the tapes and other reports have pretty well stated it was a planned attack. No, Libyan police or military tried to protect the consulate. Marine guard should be more than shredders of documents. Countries that won't allow us sufficient security support by our own people, not locals or foreign companies, should be eliminate from our roster of support and our embassies/consulates closed.
