FWIW I don't know what 'out' anyone could have given him that would hold water. For the sake of argument let's say the attack was a riot gone out of control. Is that any excuse to leave 41 of your own people to die at their hands? Is that the 'official' 0bama policy excuse?

I agree with you...again

Perhaps the out might have been: Obama ordered/approved the special forces in from Sigonella, if necessary. Then General Ham or Leon Panetta said:
- Too much uncertainty, we can’t send the military into Benghazi.

This was Panetta’s story, that He and General Ham thought, because of the uncertainty, that the mission was too risky. I think Panetta implicated another General in that decision also.

But, being the Sec Def - the Generals take orders in that situation, not give them. So Panetta is either implicating himself, or he was operating under the president’s direction.
