Clinton Asked For More Security in Benghazi, Obama Said No
Fox News -- Last night, it was revealed that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had ordered more security at the U.S. mission in Benghazi before it was attacked where four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens were murdered by Al-Qaeda but President Obama denied the request.
The news broke on TheBlazeTV’s “Wilkow!” hosted by Andrew Wilkow, by best-selling author, Ed Klein who said the legal counsel to Clinton had informed him of this information.
Klein also said that those same sources said that former President Bill Clinton has been “urging” his wife [Hillary] to release official State Department documents that prove she called for additional security at the compound in Libya, which would almost certainly result in President Obama losing the election.

Blog author's comments - If this is true I don't believe Hillary Clinton will release the official State Department documents. Not this close to the election. Obama did not take the action he should have either before or during the terrorist attack.
Libya and Egypt were supposed to be two of Obama's successful foreign policy accomplishments, bringing democracy to both countries. Now Egypt is controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood and in Libya a terrorist attack and the murder of four Americans.
The Obama administration ignored warnings of a dangerous situation in Libya and as a result there was not the security there should have been.
The former head of a Special Forces "Site Security Team" in Libya, Lt. Col. Andy Wood has said that in spite of multiple pleas from himself and other U.S. security officials on the ground for "more, not less" security personnel, as many as 34 people were removed from the country in the six months before the attack.
Wood said he found out that his own 16-member team and a six-member State Department elite force were being pulled from Libya in August about a month before the assault in Benghazi.
Also, Obama did not send troops or planes into Libya during the attack because he wants no American show of force. He put his campaign and chance for reelection ahead of doing what a leader and president of the United States should have done. This does not surprise me.
Just imagine if this were Reagan or Bush, the long knives of all the media would have been out long ago, but not for Obama, not now, not ever.
CIA operators were denied request for help during Benghazi attack, sources say.
