Fact one: Only the POTUS can issue a CBA to send a rescue mission into a foreign country.
Fact 2: No rescue mission was ever sent.
That said I am all for subpoenaing every single ass-kissing 0coward-loving commie scumbag involved in this and grilling them until there's nothing left but a little carbon crisp.
I agree completely; sex sells, and it’s getting everyone out of breath and confused.
1. There should have been a rescue, and non was sent. Hussein went to bed ready to risk the deaths of not only 4 but 40 that night.
2. There are 15,000 MANPADS floating around Libya, now probably in the hands of Al Qaeda. For a decade or more anyone getting on a commercial plane is going to sweat a bit more. Heavy birds can take a single hit to an engine on takeoff or landing, but probably not two. We might have to install dazzlers near major at-risk airports, and we might even have to equip airliners with them (very expensive). In view of this, it’s silly to continue with the TSA shoe gang-bang, but I seriously dought they’ll stop any of that.
3. Libya/Turkey/Syria involved some major arms smuggling to proto-Al Qaeda, and this was the desire of a President of the US.
