Benghazi Diplomatic Missions Had Been Attacked Repeatedely Since June

It looks like our Ambassador to Libya died because of criminal negligence by the Obama administration. Benghazi diplomatic missions had been attacked repeatedly over the last several months (including a previous attack on the US Consulate) and yet our Consulate was not reinforced and had NO Marine protection:

On June 6, an IED was thrown at the perimeter of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi.

On June 11, the British ambassador's motorcade came under attack by a rocket-propelled grenade, or RPG.  Two security personnel were injured.

On June 18, armed gunmen attacked the Tunisian consulate and burned its flag.

On Aug. 5, five weeks before the assault on the U.S. Consulate, the International Committee of the Red Cross building in Benghazi was also struck by RPGs.  
Romney should just do an ad that lists all those attacks and then show our Consulate burning with the words "why were our diplomats not protected"?
