State Department personnel under attack on Sept. 11 at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, didn’t fire a single shot in their defense, according to testimony given behind closed doors to the Senate Intelligence Committee last week.
According to a source who attended the hearing, committee chairman Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., repeatedly pressed State Department under secretary Patrick Kennedy on whether diplomatic security agents were under instructions not to fire their weapons. Kennedy reportedly testified that no such orders were given; but he confirmed that, indeed, no shots were fired by State Department personnel. . .
