Benghazi attack prompts additional reviews of embassy security in hot spots

By Suzanne Kelly

The Office of the Inspector General at the State Department is launching two reviews to determine whether the U.S. security posture is adequate at overseas posts prone to violence and terrorism.

In a letter provided to CNN by a source familiar with the investigation, Deputy Inspector General Harold Geisel announced the additional reviews, which are part of ongoing audits. According to the letter, the new reviews, known as “scopes of work,” will take a closer look at not only the security measures and procedure in place, but they will also focus on the role contractors play in assessing whether local security guards are up to the task of protecting U.S. embassies and missions.

A number of inspections are underway that examine how information about threats is shared within the State Department and its various missions. According to the letter, additional inspections are already being planned for the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad with more being considered at U.S. embassies in Beirut, Lebanon, and Rabat, Morocco. The scope extends to a number of missions around the world as well.

"At present, we are inspecting a number of missions, including Nigeria and the Philippines, and will assess security measures as part of those inspections," the letter stated. Missions tend not to have the same level of security that U.S. embassies are provided.

The additional reviews were requested by Sens. Joe Lieberman, I-Connecticut, and Susan Collins, R-Maine. They are the leaders of the Senate Homeland Security Committee and are also leading a bipartisan inquiry into circumstances surrounding the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.

The attack on September 11 left Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans dead. Many lawmakers have questioned the adequacy of the security at the mission.

    I, too, came to CNN looking for news on Benghazi. I've been impressed lately with Erin Burnett and her tough questions.......but she, too, has been a bit biased in an apparent attempt to protect the president. I can almost buy the story that there are many reports, decisions made in the heat of battle but NO ONE is asking why they blamed a video protected under the First Amendment and continued to blame the video for weeks.

    So this is all CNN can find to report about Benghazi? This artical os about other embasiesbut nothing to do with the request for more security months, weeks, and data before our four Men were murdered.

    Please do some real reporting.

      This is an epic scandal, but the public is served by blind idealogues and is itself too ignorant to know better. There is an absence of truth. We live in times when anyone can basically get away with anything; the bigger the scandal the louder its defenders. Welcome to our brave new world!

    That's awkwardly funny and a tad ironic. I've been hearing about the Benghazi reports through others, and so I decided to check it out on CNN only to find it hardly mentioned. Then I logon to foxnews and see this on the front page. Is CNN trying to hide something? I thought that the news was supposed to report the facts and let the readers decide for ourselves. It appears that CNN is choosing which facts to report?? The irony is that I was looking for the story and decided to leave a comment asking why there wasn't much coverage when I saw the comments that others are leaving. CNN, you need to listen up to the voices of Americans.....or maybe you have chosen to listen to others who are wanting us to be duped??

    Welcome to communist TV, I guess.

    In regards to Misfit's concern that one might make a decision as to the character of a man off of one incident, I quote from C. S. Lewis:
    "...what a man does when he is taken off his guard is the best evidence for what sort of a man he is. Surely what pops out before the man has time to put on a disguise is the truth. If there are rats in a cellar you are most likely to see them if you go in very suddenly. But the suddenness does not create the rats: it only prevents them from hiding. In the same way the suddenness of the provocation does not make me an ill-tempered man: it only shows me what an ill-tempered man I am. The rats are always there in the cellar, but if you go in shouting and noisily they will have taken cover before you switch on the light.”
    Barack Obama has a lot of rats in his cellar.

    Oh, now you want to beef up security. The bad thing about backwards planning is in its name "Backwards" They should have had adequate security in place to begin with. The basic fundamentals for avoiding being attacked is to be a hard target. If you look unprepared then you are and it builds confidence in the enemy. They were and they knew it, so when they asked for more security..Denied! When asked for help while under fire...Denied! Thank God for those two SEAL's while under duress disregarded an obvious failure of leadership and went and rescued those in need anyway. If only our administration would show that type of honor, courage, and commitment to its own people this issue would never have been an issue. My heart and deepest sympathies go out to the families directly impacted by this mess. I am very truly sorry for your loss and will strive everyday in my life to prevent tragedies like this from occuring around me. I can't imagine how you feel learning about how this all went down. Im sure you want answers and I hope you get them and that they provide some type of closure and ease your suffering.

    In respnse to: Misfit
    Elizabeth and Phuber, you are going to base your decision on who should be the presidents off of one incident? Do you think Romney hasn't and wouldn't make the same mistake? It's very difficult because on one hand, some complain that all the news reports is violence and killing. Sometimes, I get tired of hearing about another terrorist attack or bombing. I'm in the military and what we have learned about terrorist attacks is that the goal is to cause fear and hysteria. If the new reports it then the attacks are successful. We know that this particular situation is receiving special attention because it's during an election time period but man... It's hard. I just ask that you don't vote off of how you think the POTUS should have handled this situation. Of course Fox is going to report it because they are out to get the POTUS and make him look bad in any way possible. Do you believe that's the way to go?

    At this point I do believe the "way to go" is to vote for Mr. Romney.
    And I am surprised that as someone in the military that you are not placing value on the very least that one expects from a leader; Moral Courage and Responsibility.

    I voted for Mr. Obama last election, but right now I believe his hubris is overtaking what humility he may have had.
    People change, as any good president should change, but he seems to be going in the wrong direction. Perhaps Mr. Obama isn't best suited to be president of USA. I think that's a fair question to ask.

    As for Mr. Romney. I believe as someone who has actually worked in the real world, he understands responsibility. I believe Mr. Romney would see it as his obligation to be held accountable. Let's not forget – Mr. Obama has never been anything but a volunteer "community organizer". As someone who has experience in both, I can tell you that overall, volunteers are simply volunteers, and nothing more, held accountable to no one. When a volunteer is incompetent – nothing happens.

    Whatever drives Mr. Obama to respond the way he does, we will never know....but I believe I'll be voting for Mr. Romney in 2012.

      Elizabeth, since your decision is made, I will not try to influence you to change. What I will say is this, my whole point is about how do we respond to one single event. I think it's unreasonable to think that any human being would act perfectly. I don't know all of the details just as many don't so it's hard to make an informed judgement on who the POTUS acted, He may very well have dropped the ball big time and made a huge mistake. I'm not trying to defend him nor is that my goal. What I;m trying to say is that it's irrational to make a major decision on who should be the president based on Benghazi. It's easy for Romney and for us to say this or that should have been done but we aren't in that position. Have you never made a mistake or your job? Also, we will have to disagree on whether he's taking responsibility or not. During the second debate he said that he was responsible as the president and not Clinton. In my view he did. There's no way anyone with the exception of the upper class should vote for Romney. That's soley my opinion and that's the wonderful part about this country. Happy voting! Sadly, since we are in a republic, unless you live in a swing state, your vote doesn't matter.

        Except that it's NOT just one event....eventhough this president ALLOWED those 4 heroes to be killed.....and that is the difference between Watergate.....

        The pattern this sitting president has shown is that he is incompetent, petulant, vain, self righteous, a liar, and NOT a leader....but a divider.

        I also think that at his very heart...he HATES this country and it's people. Every action he has taken, or in a number of cases, refused to act....has demonstrated a disgust for the majority of the citizens and their well being. He has engaged in activities that have weakened our nation, & our nation's security.

      Exactly. With the planned Bin Laden raid, the administration had time to get their PR machine revved up and their story straight before it happened. With the Benghazi attack, they had no prep time and panicked and tried to cover it up. Which situation do you think speaks more loudly about the character of leadership?

Thankfully, FOX is reporting as much as they can on this... and they're not trying to frost over it with distracting, candy-coated versions of why our government is purposefully hiding the truth. I agree with Barbara... we had pics of the situation room during the Bin Laden strike, we have pics of Obama's storm response, and absolutely no info on the whereabouts of the entire administration during the 4 hours of this attack. And, we had jets that could be scrambled 30 minutes away from an attack that lasted 4 hours? No order given to seals other than to stand down and leave the jets on the ground. What??????!!!!!! Why doesn't CNN push for this?

    Let me try to help you guys...this is what happened ABOUT 1 MONTH BEFORE THE ATTACK:

    The U.S. Mission in Benghazi convened an “EMERGENCY MEETING” less than a month before the assault that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, because Al Qaeda had training camps in Benghazi and the consulate could not defend against a “coordinated attack,” according to a classified cable reviewed by Fox News.

    ....said that the State Department’s senior security officer, also known as the RSO, DID NOT BELIEVE the consulate COULD BE PROTECTED.....due to limited manpower, security measures, weapons capabilities, host nation support, and the overall size of the compound.

    According to a review of the cable addressed to the OFFICE OF THE SECRETARY OF STATE HILLARY CLINTON, the Emergency Action Committee was also briefed.

    God help us if you just don't have the guts, as journalists, to report the truth!

If there is anything that is good about the situation it is the fact that Fox News continues to bring to light the depth of the cover-up.

Its become so obvious CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS are nothing but liberal media outlets who are interested only in their political / party views and not interested in professional journalism.
