American media drops ball, again: US consulate in Benghazi lacked proper security
As Bryan Preston points out - and is becoming broadly understood – the American media has completely dropped the ball as regards the on going story of turmoil in the Middle-East. They are showing no signs of questioning this administration over anything. They may as well be Pravda, at this point.
As our tipster noted, we have to find stories like this in the overseas press. The US press is too busy flogging Mitt Romney for showing some leadership. So let’s note for the record that this story comes to us by way of the BBC.
The US consulate in Benghazi, where the US ambassador to Libya died in an attack on Tuesday, was not given the standard security contract offered to many American diplomatic missions in the Middle East, private military contractors have told the BBC.The consulates walls were breached in just 15 minutes, guards were outgunned and overwhelmed and four US personnel were killed, including the Ambassador, J Christopher Stevens.
Matt Drudge also pointed it out on Twitter last night

The world is in turmoil and Clinton’s State Department, the whole of the Obama administration and the American media are all coming up woefully short. They are each more driven by a progressive mindset that prevents them from accepting the truth, or fulfilling their respective responsibilities to America. The BBC story is here.
