-It was 9-11
-13 separate attacks on or near the compound between April and September
-The U.S. mission in Libya recorded 230 "security incidents" over a one-year period between 2011 and 2012
-There was no protest at the consulate
-The chain of events in that timeline were absolutely pushed up the chain immediately. No way it took a week to gather the facts necessary to rule out a protest gone wild over a stupid video. If not, we have big problem either way.
