So it was too risky for Delta force, jet fighters, and the AC130 but not too risky for an unarmed Ambassador and his staff.
Am I understanding this correctly?
Too risky for the scardy-cats? But not too risky for Obama w/o the Senate’s approval to support the rebels a year ago? hmm
Why yes. No reason to have a Predator drone ‘injured or killed’ now is there...after all they are kinda expensive. How much does an Ambassador and staff cost?
No, I believe it was too risky for the political aspirations of the administration.
Geeze, just buzzing the area with F-15s (or similar) is enough to intimidate a bunch of terrorsit soldiers. Those planes are intimidating and would certainly worry the terrorist that more was on the way....even if really wasn’t..couldn’t even do that.
Yes you are!
Nice to see the Slimes is “waking” up. The problem is there was NO Consulate in Benghazi, none what so ever or a diplomatic site. The Consulate is in Tripoli out of the Embassy!!
The Benghazi site was a huge “secret” cesspool of CIA gun-running operation to Syria via Turkish agents and spearheaded by the American Ambassador. The W.H. was not Interested in saving the people there trying to bury the truth of this operation being published to the American People (a stupid Video) like they are stone walling F & F. There are a lot of traitors in DOD and the W.H. where particular we have a WAR CRIMINAL sitting!!!
Fact is, they had MONTHS to figure out what was going on, with multiple attack attempts and requests for security and that's a long time to make plans assuming you actually bother to prep for anything. That they sent home what real security they had against the wishes of the ambassador tells us that not only did they not prepare for a serious armed attack on our mission there, they deliberately went out of their way to undermine security, and that means they really didn't want to know what was going on even BEFORE the attack, much less during it. No interest in it whatsoever. Every other western country with an embassy there figured it out right quick but we didn't because the White House has at minimum been AWOL or worse, has been engaged in sabotage.
