State Dept Did Not Reply to Libya Officer Who Requested More Security

State Dept Did Not Reply to Libya Officer Who Requested More Security

A U.S. security officer asked the State Dept. for more security in Libya — he received no response.

When security officer Eric Nordstrom asked for more security in Libya in light of more than 200 security breaches from July 2011 to July 2012, he received no answer. Forty-eight of these recorded breaches took place in Benghazi.

Instead, he learned that State Dept. official Charlene Lamb wanted to keep the number of security personnel in Benghazi “artificially low,” whatever that means. The result of this was not only the death of four Americans on September 11, but the wounding of three others who were hurt so bad that one of them is still in the hospital. 

Nordstrom claims Lamb “believed the Benghazi post did not need any Diplomatic Security Special Agents because there was a residential safe haven to fall back to in an emergency.” Ambassador Stevens died in that “safe haven.”
