What the Diary Says

CNN has reported that three days after the attack on our consulate in Libya, CNN found Ambassador Chris Steven’s journal lying on the ground.  They returned it to his family.  According to the CNN report,

 “The journal was found on the floor of the largely unsecured consulate compound where he was fatally wounded.”

Wait – what?  Three days after our consulate was ransacked, any Tom, Dick, and Mahmood could wander through it, picking up whatever bits of stuff happened to be lying around?  Someone please tell me that at least we had a team go through to retrieve classified data.  PLEASE.

Was the Obama administration was so busy telling the public to just move along, nothing to see here, that they didn’t bother to secure the site?

Apparently, Ambassador Stevens had only written seven pages in the journal.  But those blank pages, and the finding of the journal, speak volumes.

About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
