…I’ve just spoken with Rep. Jason Chaffetz…chair of the House Oversight subcommittee looking into the 9-11 attacks in Libya. That panel holds a hearing on the subject Wednesday.

Chaffetz travelled with Gen. Carter Ham, the head of Africom (The US Command over Africa) in Tripoli. Had hoped to go to Benghazi but it is too dangerous.

Chaffetz says the idea that protests were spurred by the video is dubious at best…

…Lt. Col. Andy Wood was the leader of the 16 member special forces team whose job it was to protect US personnel in Libya. His team’s mission ended in August a month before the deadly Al-Qaeda attack on 9-11. A six member mobile security team was also withdrawn around the same time. This was despite the fact that there were over a dozen attacks in the country this year. Lt. Col. Wood was subpoenaed to appear at a House committee hearing this coming week. Wood told CBS News it was unbelievable to him that the State Department withdrew security when they did because of the 13 security incidents before 9-11…

…the State Department was either unaware that the Libyan authorities had no ability to intervene, which means that top brass didn’t know what most people reading this site knew. Or they knew and were covering their asses…
