Posted by FactReal on September 14, 2012

Catherine Herridge reports:

While the Obama administration says there was no actionable intelligence that could have prevented the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, there was a heightened threat in the region due to at least four attacks on diplomatic and western targets leading up to the murder of the U.S. ambassador. […]

● On June 6, an IED [improvised explosive device] was thrown at the perimeter of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi.

● On June 11, the British ambassador’s motorcade came under attack by a rocket propelled grenade or RPG. Two security personnel were injured.

● Seven days later, on June 18, armed gunmen attacked the Tunisian consulate and burned its flag.

● And on August 5, five weeks before the assault on the U.S. Consulate, the International Committee of the Red Cross building in Benghazi was also struck by RPGs.
