    Lt. Col. Wood has told CBS News and congressional investigators that his 16-member team and a six-member State Department elite force called a Mobile Security Deployment team left Libya in August, just one month before the Benghazi assault. Wood says that's despite the fact that US officials in Libya wanted security increased, not decreased.
    Wood says he met daily with Stevens and that security was a constant challenge. There were 13 threats or attacks on western diplomats and officials in Libya in the six months leading up to the September 11 attack.
    A senior State Department official told CBS News that half of the 13 incidents before September 11 were fairly minor or routine in nature, and that the Benghazi attack was so lethal and overwhelming, that a diplomatic post would not be able to repel it.
    Wood, whose team arrived in February, says he and fellow security officials were very worried about the chaos on the ground. He says they tried to communicate the danger to State Department officials in Washington, D.C., but that the officials denied requests to enhance security.

    Tonight they will count the votes and it will be decided..

    This discussion is still about what happened, not making points. Was that your objective all along?

    These operations are going on all over the ME and Africa.. It shouldn't happen again... so it should be understood beyond "cluster-fuck".

    A cluster-fuck is a cluster-fuck period, end of story. You can't talk it away, you can't wish it away. It is what it is.
