Yet everything points to the president: his policies and his unwillingness to change them to protect Americans requesting help led to the death of four Americans. None of the excuses are adding up. The State Department had repeated requests for more security months ahead of time. They had information of the attack in real time. They had hours of advance warning that an Al Qaida attack was planned for September 11. They had drones in the area, and more military personnel only an hour away. By Obama's policies, no increase in forces was granted. Obama had plenty of time to respond and bring in additional forces for this exceptional circumstance, but he didn't. Why? Apparently Obama doesn't think Americans representing America abroad are worth protecting, and that blaming a video for what he knows is a planned attack by Al Qaida is a winning strategy.

Foreign Policy magazine has a story on its website by two Dubai-based Arabic TV reporters who visited the site of the former U.S. consulate on Oct. 26 and found important documents lying around that were left behind by an FBI team that visited a month ago. These included a document claiming that on the morning of September 11 one of the consulate security guards spied a police officer charged with guarding the compound photographing it instead. Sean Smith, one of the slain diplomats, wrote hours just before his death in an online forum: “Assuming we don’t die tonight. We saw one of our ‘police’ that guard the compound taking pictures.”And we now know that the Obama administration/State Department were warned of an Al Qaida attack hours earlier than it happened, with all the information they could possibly want to order increased security ahead of time. And they didn't. This is all on Obama's head. No surprise he's still not talking about it four days before Election Day. This is bigger than Watergate.
