, Benghazi was requesting at least 5 more security agents. That despitenumerous reports of increasing terror threats and pleas for additional security at the Benghazicompound, the Obama Administration not only refused any additional security, they reducedsecurity at the Benghazi installation. Warnings of organized terror threats had become critical,supported by U.S. Intelligence by June and July 2012.
June and July of 2012
, pleas for additional security under a deteriorating situation on theground in Libya had become shrill. Yet, the Benghazi compound was left to rely only upon localLibyan militia groups for compound security. The same militia groups that included members of known terror organizations, specifically including Islamic Maghreb and Al Qaeda operatives, asreported to the Obama Administration by consulate officials on numerous occasions.
