You had an ambassador and communication professional (Smith) who were guarded by the February 17th Martyrs Brigade.
Were they trafficking heavy arms to Syria? Probably. Were they doing something hinky? Definitely.
Was what they were doing likely the province of the CIA? Most definitely.
Had people, including Stevens, raised alarm bells about the lack of security? Yup!
Was the CIA looking in on outright incompetence, while literally within earshot of rifle fire? Yes!
This all display Obamas ideology, long held paranoia and bias world view. Im sure Obama and his people thought what Stevens was doing was sexy, because it was risky. Of coarse, a leftist cant trust rank and file CIA, right? The CIA killed Che, Obamas hero, Obama is the self styled Che of the new Islamic caliphate.
Again, you cant trust the CIA, that is until your getting your ass shot off in a third world hell hole and your leftist party friends leave you for dead.
Stevens and Smith were expendable to Obama, but they werent expendable to Woods and Doherty.
