The Obama administration’s deadly failures in the months leading up to the terrorist attack on the U.S. embassy in Libya continue to trickle out.

In an exclusive report that will make your blood boil, ABC’s Jake Tapper highlights a request made by the embassy’s security team in May. The State Department rejected the request for a small aircraft that would allow the team to move safely around the country.

ABC News has obtained an internal State Department email from May 3, 2012, indicating that the State Department denied a request from the security team at the Embassy of Libya to retain a DC-3 airplane in the country to better conduct their duties.

Copied on the email was U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was killed in a terrorist attack on the diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya,  Sept. 11, 2012, along with three other Americans. That attack has prompted questions about whether the diplomatic personnel in that country were provided with adequate security support.

A House Oversight Committee spokesperson told ABC, “Security related transportation has been identified as one of the particular items where embassy personnel did not receive the support they sought.”

Just another “bump in the road” for President Obama and the State Department?

It’s long past time for the media to shrug off their palace guard uniforms and turn the drip-drip-drip into a flood.
