Maddow Exposes Obama Administration’s Lax Security in Benghazi
On her cable show Thursday night, Maddow described how Stevens, an Arabic speaker and “longtime student of Libya” who “understood the country well,” traveled to the coastal city of Derna in 2008. Stevens wrote a classified memo, later published by WikiLeaks, warning of growing al Qaeda militancy in Derna, “right there next to Benghazi,” Maddow said.
Stevens cable to Washington “actually used the Bruce Willis movie Die Hard as an analogy for understanding how intense the local attitudes were there about jihad,” Maddow said. Not only that, al Qaeda documents seized by American troops in Iraq revealed that more holy warriors were sent to Iraq from Derna “than any other place in the entire Arab world,” Maddow said.
