No Security At Benghazi Consulate Except Locked Doors

No Marines, no bulletproof windows. No nothing-- except "lock and key security," also known as "no security."

The administration "explains" this by saying it was an "interim facility." Apparently you don't have to fear attacks at an "interim facility." It's like a Church in the Highlander series.

Except it's not.

But it would be crude politics to say something like "Obama should have provided security at the 'interim facility.'"

How was he to know there was any danger? It's not like Benghazi has long been a, what are the right words?, an Al Qaeda stronghold or anything.

Oh wait. That's right, it always has been an Al Qaeda stronghold.

Now he's sending in ships and helicopters and Marines.

I guess to secure the dead bodies.

But remember, the real story of the day is "Mitt Romney criticizes Obama and the Cairo Embassy and the media doesn't like it one bit."

No Reason To Worry About Benghazi... Except for the State Department warning people about violence and kidnappings and assassinations in Benghazi.

By the way, there was also an IED attack on the office in June.

I guess those locks held at that point. So, they probably got overconfident about their door-locks.

By the Way: In Las Vegas, Obama delivered a beautiful eulogy for the dead embassy staffers, in the form of his own version of Amazing Grace.
