A team of about 50 Marines has been dispatched to the Libyan city of Benghazi to secure the U.S. Consulate after attacks Tuesday left four Americans dead including the U.S. ambassador, a senior U.S. military official told Fox News.
The official said a Marine "fast team" is being sent from the U.S. Naval base in Rota, Spain. They are not yet on the ground.
The move comes after President Obama ordered "all necessary resources" provided to Libya to support the security of U.S. personnel in the country.

The very definition of bold leadership after the fact.
Secure what? a pile of ashes?....................
IMO Romney should express disappointment with Obama’s weakness, and the conservative mega-phones should be blasting Obama and the traitorous scum bucket college professor multi-cult kumbaya out of touch liberals for their anti-Americanism and their general stupidity.
I do not foresee these Marines actually arriving at the consulate safely. Will they go in by helicopter and land within the compound?
Guess zero could not spare 51 marines....
first sign of trouble, Obama will apologize and order the Marines to either get out or extend their necks.
Did they give these guys live ammo?
Disappointment? How about outrage.
A little late ...
What gets me is why there is no Marine task force in the Med. But then again the muzsymp Obama probably has the Marines doing social work somewhere else.
The question is why did Obama allow them to be removed in the first place ?
Were they prevented from firing on these enemy combatants while they were invading the US soil of the Embassy grounds, then over run ?
There is much more to this story that the MSM and folks are missing.
THE AMBASSADOR WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN PRESENT WITHOUT MARINES !
A president should not sound like a talk show host, his choice of words should be judicious, it is up to us to blast them out of the water.
ONLY 50 Marines???? Anyone remember Task Force Smith? Damn, just damn.
Mr. Obama should send an MEU to Libya right away.
Meanwhile, Mr. Obama goes to Nevada today to campaign.
Good Lord. I hope the people who voted for this man feel foolish and stupid.
One has to give 0bana credit for having the cajones and afterthought to take the bull by the tail and face the situation.
Is he personally going to help clean up the litter of battle too?
There has been news that all embassy personnel have been removed from Libya! What are the Marines going to do there? I guess their mission could be to secure sensitive documents that were not burned or already stolen.
HERE WE GO AGAIN
” Good Lord. I hope the people who voted for this man feel foolish and stupid. “ ........ they may feel it, but won’t admit it.
