State Dept Hid Identity of British Firm Providing ‘No Bulletes’ Security to Benghazi

Breitbart News has learned that the State Department hid the identity and nationality of Blue Mountain Group, the British firm it hired to provide “no bullets” security at Benghazi, in the federal contract it signed with that organization in February 2012. 

Breitbart News obtained a copy of the official summary of the contract by performing a search at the Federal Procurement Data System website, a link provided by’s Danger Room.
Blue Mountain Group was not identified as the vendor in that summary of the contract. Instead, the vendor was listed under the vague term “Miscellaneous Foreign Awardee.”
Incredibly, the vendor contact address on the contract — 1275 First Street, NE, Washington, D.C. is not the office of Blue Mountain Group, but is instead the office of the Regulatory Secretariat Division of the General Services Administration of the federal government. The phone contact listed in the contract is of an office number for an employee of the GSA.
According to its website, the Regulatory Secretariat Division has the following responsibilities:
The Regulatory Secretariat Division staff prepares, compiles, and processes regulatory and general notices for publication in the Federal Register.  The Division works in conjunction with the efforts of the General Services Administration (GSA), Department of Defense (DOD), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to ensure publication of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR). Additional publications are processed by working with various GSA offices to ensure the publications of the Federal Management Regulation (FMR), Federal Travel Regulation (FTR), General Services Acquisition Regulation/Manual (GSAR/GSAM), and other General Services Administration (GSA) regulations.
None of these activities seem consistent with functioning as the “front location” for an unidentified “Miscellaneous Foreign Awardee” responsible for providing security at the American mission in Benghazi.
On Tuesday, State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland identified Blue Mountain Group as the “Miscellaneous Foreign Awardee” that had received the State Department contract to provide security Benghazi.
