Think Iran 1979....A U.S. Ambassador with no security detail? Highly unlikely..For anyone who served in Southeast Asia.. has either been part of the security detail or interacted with said details.
This was a setup designed to provide cover. Personal opinion...2 former S.E.A.L.’s were the flies in the ointment.
The WH was not surprised of the U.S. Consulate attack! No Presser by Present Obama....curious..
The sacrificial terrorists were provided weapons and were more likely convinced of the fact there would be no resistance. Hence, once the 2 former S.E.A.L.’s Donerty and Woods intervened, well...the situation escalated way beyond the original plans.
you're right! Obama has always called a presser for any reason
