The ex-SEALs were certainly capable of doing a threat assessment. Delta Force was two hours away! THey were doing training exercises in Europe. They really feel a group of locals with AKs could pose a threat to the most elite fighting unit we’ve got??
Total BS. Obama decided it was politically risky to have a failed rescue mission. They had the larger context of Cairo and other embassies facing protests. They LIED.
Obama lied six times to the UN blaming the video. Hillary lied to the father of one of the fallen. Lies lies lies.
Obama met at 5 pm with Panetta and made the call to NOT intervene.
His statement to the Denver reporter (nice to see there are a few left) was telling. He said his order was to intervene, then investigate, then hold the guilty accountable.
If the President ordered something to be done, who didn’t carry out his order?
Looks like they are setting up the Admiral (see ABC news story) to the fall guy. Gen Ham is also out.
In essence, this puts our consulates in greater danger. It signals al-qaeda, they can attack in similar circumstances and the U. S. will not respond.
It is a truly dangerous signal. Lives will be lost because of it.
Admiral Clapper? Is the DNI getting set up?
