Our intelligence is very good, but not good enough to read the mind of mobs. Even if we had enough soldiers and ammo, it still would have been very difficult to protect the Benghazi embassy and staff.
The only way I can see to prevent an incident is to live in a dome 24/7 and not in an embassy, which is not possible. But instead of making the whole incident political, we can try to improve our security and change our policy by passing new laws if we really love the people working in these embassy.
We should hold the Libyan government responsible, not Hillary Clinton.
It is not easy to mobilize boots to protect embassy staff in short notice. If it is so simple to protect our interests at home and abroad we would not had 9/11 and other incidents around the globe.
Pointing a finger will not help the critic come up with how to better protect our embassy staff.
