Joe Biden Contradicts State Dept Testimony on Benghazi Security

The vice president claimed at last night's debate the administration was unaware more security was needed at the Benghazi consulate despite multiple requests


Vice President Joe Biden claimed that the administration wasn't aware of requests for more security in Libya before the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi during Thursday night's debate, contradicting two State Department officials and the former head of diplomatic security in Libya.

"We weren't told they wanted more security. We did not know they wanted more security there," Biden said.
