Who decided to have a consulate open in Benghazi when all other countries had pulled out?

To discontinue contractor security just prior to 9-11-12?

To turn down Ambassador Stevens’ request for more security?

To not send help or even start a rescue operation?

To not give up certain documents without a subpoena?

Further, why has no one been arrested? The videos show the faces of some of the terrorists.

Who means a person, not an agency or group.

None of these questions have been answered satisfactorily. The answer is always the CIA or FBI, or some other generalization.

Someone made these decisions. Who?

Our government put Ambassador Stevens and others in harm`s way, did not give them what was requested, and it resulted in the deaths of four Americans.
