State Department "Security" Officers In Benghazi Were Unarmed

An exclusive from Kerry Picket, now at Breitbart.

Their weapons were in another building. After the attack started, some of them went to other building to get weapons, but all but one was prevented from re-entering the consulate.

“From the accounts I read, those guys were not ready. When the attack came that night, they had to go back to the other room and grab their weapons. Then the worse part about it was they never even returned to be with the Ambassador. One returned to be with the Ambassador with his rifle. The other two went back to where there were [sic] barracks. And two stayed in that same building where there were radios and other weapons and the safe and other stuff was there.

There were no shots fired in return. On the embassy property, just the embassy property, none of those security agents blasted a single bullet from a single pistol or rifle at all in defense of the Ambassador—nothing.”

And she has this solid. This isn't scuttlebutt.

This was the security situation Obama and Hillary engineered -- five dudes, with no time together to form any sort of group cohesion, without guns. The serious military security had been sent away in August, over the objections of the consulate's security chief.

BTW, Word geekery: Why did they add [sic] after "there were barracks"? I'm guessing it's because they think the noun doesn't agree with the verb, like the noun is singular but the verb is plural. But isn't "barracks" used interchangeably to mean both a barrack and a cluster of barracks?

If you're a military person with some word geek skills, let me know. I think Breitbart got this wrong.

Not be confused with "Barack," meaning "a stuttering cluster***k of a miserable failure," of course.

Oh, Here's Another Military Word-Use Question: "Bivouac" means a temporary camp, right? So is it used to distinguish between a more permanent, more structured camp (which is still pretty temporary)? Like a "camp" would be a more serious shelter you intend to stay in for a while, while a bivouac is a quickie thing you build overnight, en route to the place you intend to camp?

Or is it just jargon?
