Ghosts Of Libya Will Haunt Obama's Foreign Policy Records. by violent(m): 12:25am On Oct 22, 2012
The US election has reached its boiling point, with several posts putting both candidates at a tie..and even in most extreme scenarios, perhaps a one point lead over each other. But one issue that has been little stretched so far, and one you may expect will soil Obama's pants at the next debate will be the murder of a United States ambassador in Benghazi along with 3 other American citizens.

This is especially a sensitive issue, one for which a casual observer may note that the current Obama administration had shot itself in the foot severally....from cover ups, to half truths, to completely misleading statements...hoping halfway, Americans may just ignore it as a non issue and will just take the President's word for it when he said he intends to hunt down the killers.

This is however proving to be far from the case. Many more stories that have surfaced in recent days reveals that the American ambassador repeatedly pleaded for the State Department to ramp up his security in Libya, noting that the situation in Libya is being exploited by many independent actors and described the security conditions as rapidly deteriorating -----Pentagon was said to have denied his requests.

There are now questions regarding what Political motivations, if any could have led the administration to deny such requests.More questions will probably be centered on Biden's remarks during the Vice Presidential debate during which he denied that the US government had any knowledge about the ambassador's requests for security.

If you thought that's likely to be the end of it all, you may be in for a shocker, as it emerged that this week, one of the accused plotters of the Benghazi attack was pictured in the open sipping Strawberry frappe. Insult upon injury if you ask me. Where's Obama's promise to hunt down the killers?
