During an interview with Fox News, former Communications Director for the National Security Council, Tommy Vietor, said that during the Benghazi attack, where four Americans including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens were killed, the President's whereabouts were unknown. He confirmed that the President was not in the "Situation Room" and was not physically monitoring the ongoing situation.

Why was Christopher Stevens in Benghazi?

A burning question remains, why was U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens in Benghazi, especially on the anniversary of September 11th? No one in the Obama administration has been able to answer this question.

According to reports, several of the surrounding embassies were attacked and had to remove their staff, prior to the U.S. Embassy tragedy. Tensions were rising and al-Qaeda had infiltrated the area.  Libyan President Mohammed Magarief, warned the embassies, that the local police could not protect them. 

The U.S. Embassy was the last flag flying in Benghazi. Why?

The now infamous "what difference does it make" statement uttered by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, may cost her the White House in 2016. Her lack of empathy and decorum during her testimony in front of congress last year, has even her staunchest supporters worrying about her presidential future.

Questions remain, why Christopher Stevens request for greater fortification and more security at the Benghazi Embassy, was denied? These request were denied by Hillary Clinton's office.
