2) Obama went into Libya initially with no congressional approval because he claimed that it wasn't a US military operation. Thus, sending the military in would have proven him wrong. It would have imperiled his left-wing support during election season.
Sharryl Atkinson went big on F&F and now she’s leading here. There are a few other non Fox reporters doing this and funny thing is that they’re all female. About the story’s list of useful military assets, there was a NAS , USAF base and a naval base. They waited for spec ops to arrive from Germany, but an NAS and a naval base have Marines. Every Marine is a rifleman. Like the battleship and cruiser Marines who prepped to go ashore at Omaha on June 6 these Marines could have been inserted quickly into Benghazi . Did no one think of this? has the military become too compartmentalized by mission, or did Obama and Clinton not care?
Just when you think the MSM has given up “straight” journalism, someone like Attkisson comes along.
8 years active Air Force. 3 flying F4s. Was part of R D F with main tasking Middle East. Your turn.
‘Tard never heard of Blackhawk Down. And that was a planned mission. Another Internet Hero...
Thank you for your sons service. I worked with the Marines at Camp Lejeune last year.
To your point there is a plan for the Marine guards at embassies. Unfortunately it’s to hold on and defend the embassy until help from the local government arrives. Most embassies are fortified have safe rooms etc. Bengazi was none of those, and security was 2 locals with flashlights and night sticks. THAT’S the crime here, that Obamas administration left those embassy staff with essentially no protection.
Attention, you unmitigated Moron. TWO Nave SEALs held off 200 attackers (who had MANPAD, etc) for 6-7 HOURS. Secondly, ANY Marine would jump into those kinds of odds to save US property and American lives, and without hesitation.
One FAST Team would have sent those cowardice scumbags into the Mediterranean!
