According to this source, the Libyan staff got no response when they requested more security
. This is inexcusable.
Another controversial thing about Libya was how shortly after the war, the rebels were targeting and slaughtering sub-saharan black Africans
left and right because of Ghadafi's favoriting them as bodyguards and mercenaries, yet nobody said dick about it. Would the same have happened if Bush were president? I don't think so.
Yeah.. That's the thing, I'm 50% in agreement w you. Obviously i think that request didn't make it to the POTUS or VP desk, nor should it... But they did request increased security and people died... At the end I guess it's not acceptable and the buck does stop the President.
