New Email Surfaces Showing State Department Refused Aid to Libyan Embassy

Jake Tapper

Jake Tapper of ABC News obtained an internal May 3, 2012 State Department email fin which they denied a request from the security team at the Embassy of Libya to retain a DC-3 airplane in the country to better conduct their duties. Ambassador Stevens, who was murdered in Benghazi, was copied on the email.

Whether the plane would have helped the murdered Americans in Benghazi that night is still unknown.

The email is another indication that the Americans in Libya were concerned about safety and were possibly ignored by the State Department. [ABC News]

What did the State Department know and when did they know it?
