Do we have enough forces left in the Mediterranean area to whip a dead cat?

[Do we have enough forces left in the Mediterranean area to whip a dead cat?]

That's the real question in the article. You'd think that even if the State Department was negligent in fortifying and guarding the consulate, the CIA would have a rapid response drill worked out with regional U.S. forces to protect their annex. I read that among other things the annex was a listening post. I imagine there is sophisticated electronics in these sites along with records and logs, access codes, and who knows what else.

I sense from the article that Benghazi, in the greater scheme of U.S. diplomatic missions, was a backwater post that was expendable. The only positive note in this debacle is the exposure of the Chinese fire drill Obama calls a foreign policy.
