Clinton Testified That Marines Were Stationed At U.S. Diplomatic Facilities “Not For The Purpose Of Personnel Protection.” CLINTON: “Certainly it was useful for our security professionals and our diplomats to be partnered in that way with the Defense Department. You know, historically the only presence at some of our facilities has been Marines. And as you know well, Marines were there not for the purpose of personnel protection; they were there to destroy classified material and equipment.” (Hillary Clinton, Select Committee On Benghazi, U.S. House Of Representatives, Hearing, 10/22/15)

One Of The Purposes Of Marine Security Guards At U.S. Embassies Is To “Provide Protection For U.S. Citizens And U.S. Government Property Located Within Designated U.S. Diplomatic And Consular Premises During Exigent Circumstances (Urgent Temporary Circumstances Which Require Immediate Aid Or Action).” “The secondary mission of the MSG is to provide protection for U.S. citizens and U.S government property located within designated U.S. diplomatic and consular premises during exigent circumstances (urgent temporary circumstances which require immediate aid or action).” (United States Marine Corps Embassy Security Group Website, Accessed 10/22/15)
