BENGHAZI

Documents Show Requests for Libya Security

It’s the latest development in an interminable blame game. Documents released by two Republican congressmen Friday show more security was requested prior to the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi. The 166-page document also contains an anxious message from Ambassador Stevens the day he died. But the key conversation in the documents dates back to February, when a U.S. officer in Libya in fact expressed the need for more security. “Beginning tomorrow, Benghazi will be down to two agents ... We have no drivers and new local guard employees,” the officer wrote. The response from the government was brief: “The DS ... is hesitant to devote resources.”
