august 16th a secret table was sent to the state department that laid out the concerns our team on the ground had at the time. and top of the list was consulate security. the guards did not think they could protect the consulate. the state department says al qaeda had training camps in benghazi and we got our hands on the direct quote from the cable rso regional security officer expressed concerns with theable to defend post in the event of a coordinated attack due to limited manpower, security measures, post nation support security and the over all size of the compound. they also said security in benghazi was trading negatively and they were becoming more brazen with their operations because they weren't scared of the libyan security force or the libyan police cracking down on them. so they told the state department in washington that the team in benghazi was going
to ask for more security at their compound to keep them safe even though they admit in their transmission they didn't know about any specific threat against the compound or against american personnel. am all of this new information seems to contradict the administration's saying four people were killed in a spontaneous attack. they want to know why president obama is so quick to respond to some tragedies like the storm damage in new jersey but isn't committed to finding the truth in libya. we don't know if we are going to hear a response from the president in the five days before the election. that last question peter a lot of people are asking today. >> the top five stories making news at this hour. the search resumes for two young brothers snatchd from their mother's arms in the super

and they would not be able to defend themselves against terrorists in the event of an attack. we got our hands on a quote from that secret cable that was based on an emergency meeting in libya a day before. it says quote rso regional security officer expressed concerns with the ability to defend both in the event of a coordinated attack due to limited man power, security measures, weapons capabilities, post nation support and the overall size of the compound. the cable was clear there were not any specific threats against the americans. it was explicit that the americans would soon be asking for beefed up security because the militias in benghazi they said were becoming more brazen with their operations based on a lack of respect for the libyan security forces and libyan police. this mid august cable warned washington things were not good on the ground in benghazi. now the republican senator from
