It was as it should be for a gun running operation...

Why did Benghazi security fall short?

It didn't fall short - it wasn't allowed to be USED.

When it came to weapons, the U.S. security team was outgunned. The Americans were equipped with M4 rifles and side arms. But Libya was rife with rocket-propelled grenades, machine guns, mortars and AK-47s

The U.S. had superpowerful air assets, real-time eyes-on intelligence and trained SEALs with a target designator.

But the Jihadists had one of their own in the White House. He encouraged the SEALs to give away their position by designating targets - but then refused to allow the circling AC-130 to open fire.

Our soldiers in Afghanistan are forced to work with Afghani soldiers, policemen, functionaires, etc. unarmed. They are also so saddled with other “non-threatening appearance” orders, they are often murdered before they can get to something to defend themselves with. ROEs are a joke as is Obama’s plan.

For Libya, a country whose ‘revolution’ was organized by Obama and led from behind, a brotherhood Muslim state so sympathetic to Obama, a state ‘devoid’ of Al Qaeda (because the one shot Osama), the very existence of a gun in American hands would be the supreme insult. Obama was about bowing and cowtowing. He wasn’t about protection.

That’s everyone’s jobs - to take the bullet, fall on the sword for his magnificient one-ness.

So, OPTICS....it was the optics.

Because of the Left's default resort of being Politically Correct in all cases; their misguided attempts at not "offending" those who appear to be in charge in Libya--or are influenced thereby--elements of Islamic Jihadist; and in an effort to advance their false narrative that since Dear Leader had wasted OBL, all of AQ (who they consider the only organization/group that is a threat) has been decimated and neutered.

These 3 elements created a scenario for the "perfect storm" or devastating attack, if you will.

This Regime is guilty of wantonly disregarding the safety of our Embassy personnel (much as it has been with its ROE's toward our Military in AfGan) for the sake of appeasing/defending/supporting all things Islam.

May they all (Obama, Hillary, Panetta, Dempsey, Jarrett, et al, who are complicit and guilty) rot in Hell!!!

The most logical conclusion is that Obama/Clinton
wanted the Ambassador either DEAD or held to be
traded for Obama’s Blind Sheik.

In addition, Obama could give more CIA- and other
intel to al Qaeda (the DNC/Obama way).

I’m glad to see a Wa state paper picking stuff like this up. I hope to see more, especially like what we are seeing here on FR.

White House attempts to downplay and deny the terrorism that persists out there caused the deaths. White House failed to be prepared!

Terrorism from Islam will not go away until it is BEATEN BACK as the world did successfully centuries ago. Google "Charles Martel".

“conspicuous” ?? a guard tower? Yeah, probably way more conspicuous than that American flag flying out front. Not to mention those black Suburbans? No Americans here just us private contractors——————Can you believe the petty krap that floats in the heads of Obamuzzie’s bunch? I’m pretty sure the CIA knows how to stay out of sight but Hillary can’t keep both sides of her butt under the same shade tree.

“Why did the Benghazi Security Fall Short?”

The question should be:

“Why did the Benghazi Attack Response Fall Short?”

For a SECDEF to recommend to the president to not attempt a rescue of an American Ambassador being killed, along with three others is disturbing.

Future scenarios:

Ambassador to Indonesia: “Mr. President, we are being attacked!”
President (looks over at SECDEF who immediately looks up from political poll spreadsheet he was reading and then up to oval office ceiling at stress crack) “Uh,..Mr. Ambassador,..what ever happens after I hang up this phone,..I assure you, we will fix it. Forward!” (puts fist in air)
Communications Officer: “Nice body language sir, especially the fist.”
President: “Did you get that on a pic?”
Communications Officer: “Of course, sir.”
Scheduler: “Mr President,...Soros on line 2. About Wisconsin.”
(President sighs.)
