(CNSNews.com) - When then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made an unannounced part-of-the-day visit to Tripoli, Libya, on Oct. 18, 2011, the U.S. Defense Department pre-positioned assets off the Libyan coast in case it needed to rescue the secretary of state.
The fact that the assets were pre-positioned for Clintons visit was included in the annual report of the State Departments Bureau of Diplomatic Security (BDS).
CNSNews.com asked the Pentagon if it would specify which military assets had been prepositioned off Libya at the time Clintons visit. The inquiry was forwarded to U.S. Africa Command, but a spokesman for that command declined to add any details to what had been stated in BDS report.
One of the most complex security challenges presented to the Secretarys [Diplomatic Security] Detail was her equally historic and ground-breaking trip to Libya in October, after the fall of the Qaddafi regime, said the BDS annual report.
The transitional operating environment in Tripoli was turbulent and unpredictable, said the report. DS advance team agents engaged in delicate negotiations with local militia, and quickly coordinated a diverse security team of quick-reaction forces, a tactical operations center, casualty evacuation planners, and DoD assets pre-positioned off the coast of Tripoli.
Her DS protective detail then safely escorted the secretary and her party into the country, where she was able to raise the level of U.S. government contact with that nations fledgling freedom initiative, said the report.

“Assets for me but none for thee.” HRC, presidential wannabe
Ah, but it was only FOUR who died on 9-11. To equal Hillary it would have to be at LEAST 10 mere mortals at risk of death. Inflation is up from the old 3/5th ratio for legal personhood/significance, ya know?
One of our assault ships, which carry about 900 FMF US Marines, was in the neighborhood. I noted this at the time because the Navy had mentioned it in regular news items. But after “Bengazzy” the ship was never mentioned again. Don’t remember the name of the ship but do indeed remember the story.
Here is a video of Rep. Chaffetz saying that Gen. Ham, commander of AFRICOM at that time, told him that assets were near enough to help and ready to go.
There is no doubt whatsoever that the assets were in motion preparing to receive an order to go.
