The guard force at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was in such disarray prior to the 2012 terrorist attack that the security status there was described as an “emergency” just three hours before the assault that left four Americans dead, according to State Department emails.
The emails also suggest the security contractor responsible for protecting State Department personnel there did not have a valid operating license.
“These documents show the situation in terms of security was toxic on September 11, 2012,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told Fox News. Judicial Watch obtained the emails through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.
“The State Department didn’t know what to do about security, all this was happening literally hours before the attack,” he said.
This was all on Hillary Clinton’s watch, yes?
