    (to me) dead horse.  The administration released the information it had when it had it, with caveats that they didn't want to simply jump in and assume it was a planned terror attack when the info they had at the time didn't yet show that.  With shifting information, I can see why they didn't want to deliberately commit to such an assumption until they had more definitive info.

    Still, given the nature of embassies in general, even in the worst parts of the world, and the general parsimony of funding allowed the state department by 'budget hawks', I don't think anyone can seriously claim there was security malfeasance.   Even the pentagon took damage on 9/11, and the DoD has a hell of a lot more money and security available to it.
