Pulling out of Benghazi: These colors run scared « The Greenroom: "This data point isn’t really a bombshell, so much as a confirmation of the theory that the Obama administration wanted to avoid putting too much obtrusive US security into Libya.

And for those who dislike the D’Souza theory, or at least consider it overreaching or irrelevant, the question is: what theory about Obama and his advisors does explain the decision not to adequately protect a US diplomatic mission? What could motivate a president and his staff to dismiss the security concerns expressed by the president’s own representatives in Libya?"
