Thanks for that link. Does it seem to you that they are claiming that 30 people escaped in one armored vehicle?
The description of a traffic jam that they said was customary for that time of night near the compound - how does that jive with the claims now that roadblocks had been set up?
The gate - was nobody manning the gate? They’ve got these concrete walls with razor wire and such, and yet these people were able to just come in through the gate? This picture just doesn’t add up. A bunch of people carrying containers of deisel fuel were able to just walk through the gate? Wasn’t the gate closed? Were these thugs able to shoot open the gate, or what?
When someone is trying to kill you, "personal space" has little meaning when it comes to cramming into the available transportation.
I've ridden in pickup truck "matatus" in Kenya with 27 other people and seen them with 35 or so.
"Theyve got these concrete walls with razor wire and such, and yet these people were able to just come in through the gate?"
The gate is easier than getting a ladder or driving a vehicle up next to the wall, throwing several layers of carpet (or a mattress) over the razor wire concertina and crawling right over. Wire can only slow an attacker, making him an easier target. a determined attacker will find a way through wire.
"Wasnt the gate closed? Were these thugs able to shoot open the gate, or what?"
A chain and a pickup truck could probably open the gate in 15 seconds.
Heres the Fox news timeline sequence of events for anyone who wants to study this. An amazing aspect of what these American Heroes encountered;
At 2:10 you see the escape vehicle(armored car) gets fired on from a crowd, 2 grenades were thrown under it, then hit with machine gun fire from 2 feet away;
