Military Scramble Order Overseas
First, I've got over 26 years working in military control towers, most of them as the watch supervisor/crew chief on duty.
Scrambling aircraft to respond to urgent situations normally starts at the North American Aerospace Defense Command.
The scramble order comes down through a secured phone call on a direct line.
In the attack on the U.S. embassy on Benghazi, the drone control would have been from MacDill AFB, FL, by U.S. Central Command, and would have been in direct contact, or maybe even remote control to the situation room in the White House.
Watch this 4 minute 48 second video Inside the Situation Room.
The pResident SHOULD HAVE issued to order to scramble fighters to Benghazi, to get there in minimum time.
Then he SHOULD HAVE issued a second order scrambling AC-130 gunships to respond to Benghazi, and have them stand by for more orders.

This should have been controlled by the pResident, who should have monitored and responded with guidance from his Situation Room, Read

"Sending the military into another country can be a sensitive and delicate decision. CBS News has been told Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did seek clearances from Libya to fly in their airspace, but the administration won't say anything further about what was said or decided on that front."

Someone commented yesterday on a talk radio program (can't remember which one) of something so simple, why I and apparently no one else has (as of yet) thought (or more than likely, have decided not to raise this issue as to NOT embarrass the regime) to ask the man-child-mouthpiece (Carney) Her Thighness or anyone else from the DOD, White Hut on down:

IF, as the lying, dissembling, CYA, Dear Leader Admin is using as an excuse for not responding with Military assets that they had "asked Libya for 'permission' to respond"....

WHY was NO such "permission" required or sought, when we sent the Seals into Pak-ees-stan (a sovereign country) to get Bin Laden?

Inquiring minds want to know!!!

The Arab-Kenyan Barack Hussein Obama II, a.k.a. Barry Soetoro shouldn't have asked, to start with.
He should have announced to Libya, "We're coming, and IF you get in the way, we'll step on you too.
But, since his agenda is the destruction of the United States, it's military, and it's image, he did what he thought would do the MOST damage.

The Fabian Fascist and Arab-Kenyan is trying to rebuild the United States into a turd-world country, like his home country of Kenya.

Watch Glenn Beck with Trevor Loudon & his book "Barack Obama and the Enemies Within".
Then watch that 29 minute 13 seconds video Trevor Loudon- An Urgent (and chilling) Message for America.

Interesting about the drone.
If it was sent ahead of time, that would be more damning than the emails.
I thought I had heard that it was there during the attack - not after - watching it in real time.

But if it was sent ahead of time...hmmm.
Leads me to believe 0 planned this as an Oct. surprise, so he could swoop in and save the day...and it got out of control.

0 couldn’t cut it in a cake factory, so it’s not surprising he’d mess up his OWN planned surprise...

The answer will come out and probably before the election.
A UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle or drone) can be diverted, but to have it over site at the start if the attack if it was diverted, isn't logical.
It's possible, but not probable.
The standard UAV for observation doesn't fly very fast.
However, satellite observation would be a different story, and I'm not up to speed on that one.
