LONDON — British lawmakers said Wednesday that U.K. commanders’ complacency and inadequate security were partly to blame for the failure to stop a Taliban attack on a U.S-British base in Afghanistan that killed two U.S. Marines.

The House of Commons Defense Committee said more than half the guard towers were unstaffed at the time of the audacious September 2012 assault on Camp Bastion in Helmand province.

The lawmakers said troops on the base — who at the time included Prince Harry, a helicopter pilot — had been exposed to “unnecessary risk.”

Sean Smith, a 34-year-old information management officer…emailed a friend: “Assuming we don’t die tonight. We saw one of our ‘police’ that guard the compound taking pictures.” Hours later, he was dead.—Chris Stephen “US consulate attack in Benghazi: a challenge to official version of events

”…we have four dead Americans. Whether it was because of a protest or because guys outside for a walk one night decided togo kill some Americans. What difference at this point does it make?” —Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Kabuki theater performance last year of faux outrage was one for the books, no doubt. On second thought…perhaps it was not phony outrage after all: how dare the Senate question her—her. The nerve.

In any event, not only did she dutifully provide the various media propaganda outlets with an emotive performance worthy of Hitler (”The indignation. And then, the tears in her eyes….”), but along the way she managed to plant not just one, but two, red herrings designed to mislead and misdirect: that is, the Benghazi attacks were the result of (1) protests, or (2) guys out for a walk.
