The State Department selected a private British firm to provide security at the American mission in Benghazi, Libya in part because it was willing to accept the “no bullets” rules of engagement signed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Breitbart News has learned.
On Thursday, McClatchy News reported that security on the external perimeter of the Benghazi mission was limited to a party of eight Libyan nationals, five of whom were hired by a British private security firm, three of whom were hold over revolutionary militia ‘now considered part of Libya’s military’:
‘The guard, who said he had been hired seven months ago by a British company to protect the compound, said the first explosion knocked him to the ground and he was unable to fire his weapon.
Four other contracted guards and three members of Libya’s 17th of February Brigade, a group formed during the first days of the uprising against Moammar Gadhafi and now considered part of Libya’s military, were protecting the perimeter of the compound….
The reason that the guard could not fire his weapon is because he had no bullets.
Six a days ago, we learned that Anne Patterson, Ambassador of the U. S. Embassy in Cairo banned the carrying of live ammunition by U. S. Marines and now we find out that those guarding the U. S. Embassy in Libya were not permitted to carry live ammunition.
Well, now that the cat is out of the bag, the lives of Americans working at the U.S. Embassies around the world along with anyone else working at the embassies are not worth a dime. That explains a lot.
Lives have been lost because of the ineptitude of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
The message delivered by Obama and Clinton is that it is perfectly acceptable to use Americans and others as target practice but not to worry because they cannot adequately defend themselves.
Unless this situation is immediately rectified, more lives will be lost but do not wait for Obama or Clinton to correct it because both are more concerned with their future than they are the lives of Americans.
