Why Are Non-US Military Forces Providing Security?

Or not providing, as the case may be.

I thought it was a terrible idea in Iraq when Blackwater was brought in but you decided on the “February 17 Martyrs Brigade” Obama?

The threat from the militias underscores the dangers of relying on local Libyan forces for security in the run-up to the 9/11 military-style assault. The U.S. consulate in Benghazi employed a militia called the “February 17 Martyrs Brigade” for security of the four-building compound. In addition, there were five Americans serving as diplomatic security and a group of former special operations forces that acted as a quick reaction force on the day of the 9/11 attack. Members of the militias led by bin-Ahmed and al-Gharabi overlapped with the February 17 militia, the cable says.

Really? This is what “Smart Power” has bought us?

Complete, total disaster.
