Fox News Obtains State Department Email: 'Benghazi Shelter Under Attack'
Fox News has obtained an additional email sent by the State Department to diplomatic, security and military platforms about an attack on the shelter where Ambassador Chris Stevens and others were apparently hiding out during the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Below is the document and insight from Bret Baier.
The email was sent at 11:57 pm ET on September 11, 2012. The subject line of the email reads "Benghazi Shelter Location Under Attack CBU"
The body of the email reads as follows:
"SBU DS Command reports the current shelter location for COM personnel in Benghazi is under attack by mortar fire. There are reports of injuries to COM staff."
The email refers to the annex where some of the Americans fled to was under fire six hours after the initial attack. ‘DS’ refers to Diplomatic Security and ‘SBU’ means the document is sensitive but unclassified. The email shows that mortar fire hit the safe location and as Catherine Herridge reported yesterday, mortars indicate terrorist involvement.
