Quote:Your assertion, however, was that the diplomats didn't ask for help and that such a belief was even fantastical.
My assertion was that they didn't ask for more help in Benghazi. Tripoli asked for help. It is a fantasy to believe that is the same as Benghazi.
I also linked the actual request sent by the Tripoli diplomats that you are claiming asked for help in Benghazi. Now you are arguing your own beliefs instead of the facts it seems.
And although it found that "certain senior State Department officials within two bureaus demonstrated a lack of proactive leadership" when Benghazi asked for more protection, the report said that no employees breached their duty.
