Sensitive U.S. Documents Remain Unsecured in Benghazi Consulate
U.S. Documents containing sensitive diplomatic information remain unsecured in the torched Benghazi consulate attacked on the anniversary of September 11th.
With the FBI and others still not on site to secure the premises, it is feared documents which the Obama administration has allowed to remain unguarded on site may have soon fall into the wrong hands.
These documents detail "weapons collection efforts, emergency evacuation protocols... and a list of Libyans who were contracted to secure the post." As of early October 3, the documents were still accounted for by an interpreter and a Washington Post reporter who visited the consulate, but what happened beyond that no one knows.
One thing is for sure; if the wrong eyes see the documents, it could bring dire consequences for any Libyans who tried to defend U.S. personnel from attackers.
Moreover, at least one Libyan contractor who had been working with the U.S. is terrified. He claims his photograph, birthday, phone number, and "Libyan national identity number" were all listed on a document inside the consulate.
The State Dept. has responded to this situation by saying "securing the site has... been a challenge." State Dept. spokesman Mark Toner said: "We had to evacuate all U.S. government personnel the night of the attack. After the attack, we requested help securing the site, and we continue to work with the Libyan government on this front."
Talk radio host Rush Limbaugh speculates the FBI has been purposely kept from the site in order to keep Americans from learning the horrible truth of what really took place.
