(KCEN) -- Even more devastating revelations have been released on the lack of security at the U.S. Embassy and Consulate in Libya.
The embassy had requested a security support team stay in the country for four months beyond the end of its scheduled deployment in August.
They were turned down by the State Department.
This comes as a House committee tries to discover why more security was not given to the diplomatic Consulate in Benghazi.
Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in attacks there on September 11.
Republicans charge that the Obama administration skimped on security before the attack and have been engaged in a cover-up ever since.
