    Obama admin knew embasy attack probable but did not protect staff

    Capitol Hill lawmakers expressed frustration after their requests for more information on the Libya attack were rebuffed by the State Department.

    On Wednesday Congreess renewed their demand for documents after Clinton declined to hand over the cables they initially requested. The House Intelligence Committee has not received any documents from the department either.

    The Obama administration raised concerns among Congressional lawmakers that they are pushing off the review's conclusions until after the election and did not address specific allegations that diplomats had warned in advance of security concerns.

    There are clear signs that security concerns in Libya and other embassies around the world, and what they were doing is diminishing security in the name of normalizing relations. Bengahzi diplomats made "repeated requests" for additional security but were denied.

    The Obama administration had "about a dozen" intelligence reports within hours of the attack suggesting Al Qaeda-tied militants were involved.

    Intelligence officials were picking up that it was a terror strike within 24 hours. Libya was a different situation despite the initial claims of the Obama administration.
