CBS: KEY TASK FORCE NOT CONVENED DURING #BENGHAZI CONSULATE ATTACK: CBS News has learned that during the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, the Obama Administration did not convene its top interagency counterterrorism resource: the Counterterrorism Security Group, (CSG):

“The CSG is the one group that’s supposed to know what resources every agency has. They know of multiple options and have the ability to coordinate counterterrorism assets across all the agencies,” a high-ranking government official told CBS News. “They were not allowed to do their job. They were not called upon.”

UPDATE: “It was decided from the first moments that this wasn’t terrorism, because it would be politically harmful if it were terrorism.”
