During a contentious question-and-answer session with Lamb and the other officials, lawmakers questioned why additional security personnel were not sent to the embassy despite Washington’s knowledge of various threats against Stevens.

Asked if Stevens has requested additional security as a leaked diplomatic cable had revealed, Lamb replied: “We had the correct number of [security] assets in Benghazi on the night of 9/11.”

“That doesn’t ring true to the American people,” replied Rep. Darrell Issa (R., Calif), chair of the Oversight Committee.

Lamb revealed that State Department officials closely evaluated the request for increased personnel.

“We’ve evaluated it, I evaluated it with Eric Nordstrom and a senior [regional security officer],” Lamb said. “I asked them to do a serious assessment of the number needed there.”

Lamb later admitted that she had never travelled to Libya.     !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
