The Embassy location wasn't a secret. The safe room that Steven's sought refuge in, filled with smoke from the attack. The only outside contact Steven's had during the attack (that we know of) was a call to his counterpart stationed in Tripoli.
Proof that a security threat to the embassy was real and Steven's and embassy personnel's were aware of it, lies in their repeated request for beefing up security at their temporary location, two weeks before the attack. Clinton's crime comes in not securing the safety of Benghazi's Embassy personnel, in the first place. Not in that she 'lied', when she was acting on her superiors orders to stick with the CIA narrative. At best Clinton dropped the ball in providing adequate Embassy security, knowing that Libya was explosive and threatening to U.S. personnel. At worst she was knowledgeable of our CIA's work with Islamic militants in destabilizing Benghazi and as such, a co-conspirator that had prior knowledge of an imminent attack.
The Whitehouse went with the CIA "anti-muslim film", narrative as there was obvious confusing information from the ground. Exposing who the attackers were, and the CIA's involvement with them, opened even more exposure to militant attacks on Americans in Libya. The order to Obama's underlings went out to stick with the narrative, and they did.
All of the investigations have shown that Clinton acted as she was ordered. What you haven't seen, and will not see is 50 plus hearings questioning the head of the CIA and it's role in the Benghazi tragedy.
We're all aware of the covert activity of our CIA in destabilizing the ME. And we know why they are doing it. What we are missing is the bigger picture. The one that ties our economy and that of the entire West, to the Petro dollar. Which in reality is the world's reserve currency. We are missing the fact that anything that threatens the Petro Dollar directly threatens the entire West's economic security and political standing in the world.
Before Nixon's pact with the Saudi's and OPEC countries to eliminate the gold backed dollar and replace it with the Petro Dollar, the economy's of the Western world were threatened by the fact that the world's largest gold reserves are found in Africa. A continent with countries under ME & Islamic influence.
The fact is currency's of non-westernized countries backed by gold (either in bullion or in the ground) are politically and economically threatening to non-westernized counties whose currency's are backed by the intrinsic value of oil. Specifically, the Petro Dollar.
Gold has an intrinsic value in that it is useful in the development of technology, being the softest most conductive metal for electronic data. Beyond that, it's value is limited to establishing a currency value that it backs. Oil has a much more intrinsic value in that it is needed to grease the wheels of an entire industrialized world. Even non-westernized ones.
So now you know the hegemony of the 'evil empire' is not based solely on greed, as much as it is on control. Although greed plays a part in it. The collapse of Western economies, that depend on the stabilization of the Petro Dollar plays the central role.
