Simply MEETING the attack would have been infinitely superior to what Barack Obama did. You smell like troll, do you live under bridges?

Not that it matters much now but, FWIW, I think Ernest_at_the_Beach’s post about a “purge” was in reference to 0bama purging patriotic senior military personnel.

I was not double talking. All I ask for is a chance if this person is really a patriotic Colonel in one of the military branches to have a chance to speak further. If he is a patriot and hopefully conservative, his agenda shall be shown in the days, weeks, months, to come.
If he sticks around and produces honest dialog that can be backed up, then so be it.
That's my take on the issue. I respectively consider everyone else's opinions. Take care.

TE. I took it that way. But as you long ago posted. The good General Ham was not purged. He was scheduled to be replaced.

True, but his post was in response to a post about Rear Adm. Charles M. Gaouette. My point however was that he wasn’t talking about “purging” a FReeper.

He is a meddling Politician always looking for the PRESENT vote.

He has no clue as to what an effective BOLD plan is.

I offered some reasonable advice to you over two pings.
It could go a long way for you to stay around if your who you claim to be. Give advertising guy and a lot other of us, some veritable set of facts to support your statement to him and most likely you shall be around for the duration.
Do understand. Your quick entrance on the scene, for one, places your original statement, in NOT GOOD Light.
If your on the level and fit in here. Do consider so many formal military folks, do contribute here.
Then in due time you two may end up exchanging pleasantries, so to speak.

AG. I just seem to be in a forgiving spirit this early morning. We want those responsible for this major fuck up to FRY.

Well my dear friend. Perhaps he is a deceiving far left socialist, communist, prick that since early youth was fashioned in his Islamic bringing up, and then for so many years brainwashed further, into the ways of the multitudes of commie and far left liberal foundations, to be what he is today.
A very dangerous operator who wants to fundamentally change America in it's last gasps, into a socialist state.
As your painfully aware in listening to him and watching him over the past eight years or so. He is bad news for America.
I honestly believe in the reality of things, however, he is not anywhere as cute and clever as he might present to the general public at times.
But a mere puppet being manipulated by those that are as much or in some cases more evil then he is.
Those that run the show to keep him in power.
Perhaps I will be proven to be wrong in the final analysis. So be it.

And it never ONCE occurred to you that BOTH were planned in advance? That obama has a vendetta against the SEALs specifically and he is a vengeful, if not sadistic, man? That he left ALL of the Americans in Benghazi to die? ALL of them and that was thwarted by two EX Navy SEALs?
Get OVER it, you say?
I think not.

wow, you’re a little ridiculous, this article states, that without a doubt, there were specops NEAR enough to get there in time to help.

6 hours is it? I’m sure 100% sure, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that we could have gotten help there in time, at the minimum, AT LEAST long enough to recover the bodies and kill a few hundred enemies.

We could have AT LEAST stopped him from being raped. Filthy necrophiliac sodomites.

RE: "I was referring to that move to send a Navy Officier commanding a Carrier Strike Group back to the base in the State of Washington."

And if in any way I offended you, I for the record offer you a full apology.
I miss read your intention to bring out some facts.

How could I in any way ridicule you. You took me into the fold way back in 2004. I do have mental images of some of our early interchanges during those trying times when our men and women where entrenched in Iraq.

As well as the thousands that proceeded. And come to think of it, you never once challenged what I had to say.

Nor the other way around. I do value your often beyond the required to post things of real significance.

Both. Do have a great upcoming day. One of good health and spirit. God is truly good.

EXACTLY! The bastard-in-chief always makes time for Reggie..no matter what's going on with the country. Otherwise, why are they hiding the truth about bozo's whereabouts during this time?

So bozo is homosexual...just get it out there, allow his beard, Moochelle to have a sex life of her own, and maybe she'll be more relaxed and less “busy” with busy work like telling us all what to eat and how much to exercise, and everything else she feels a need to stick her nose into. And by all means tell the kids that daddy is homosexual, that they were conceived to convey a sense of “family man” to bozo as he worked his way up the socialist/Democratic Party ladder to the “position” he holds today. Let's all just let our hair down and tell the truth. Oops, wait, socialists/communists/marxists never tell the truth...they just lie and lie...just ask Saul Alinsky, or better yet read his book, Rules for Radicals.

Not a military person myself but your points are well taken. We really need a full investigation that must continue until a cause and the culprits are identified. Until then we really do not know what transpired. At the very least until then our citizens that are in harms way will continue to be on edge and in danger. And what if this is connected to a broader assault on the US that seems to be gaining in tempo ? We need answers.

Gonna be super busy the next week so you guys hold down the fort. Hopefully I wont be running into any excitement in my travels. If I was umpire I would say, strike one, but I always preferred right field.

Boots on the ground know the truth .... They were over 80 highly trained extraction / escort shooters within an hour or two of the incident. Hillary , worried about her political ass IMO intentionally muddied up the response with misinformation and redirection of resources. Had GRS operators not taken the initiative, more, lots more would have died.

Hope they break this off in Hillary’s ass !

Doom on her and her supporters.

She is running for president. We have to go after her NOW ! Stay after her with everything she has done since day one. She is THE domestic enemy in this incident.

Tired of this cancer on America .

Thanks for the pings Piasa and Glock Rocks !

Stay safe !

A General Ham and Admiral Gayotte (sp?) were reacting in their capacity to close the distances, and under their SOP/Standing orders in their preparations, not needing NCA authority to do so...They only needed a CBA order to put assets on scene, and then were instructed to stand down, and summarily relieved of command in short order as this situation (Bengazi) deteriorated...

I wonder what ever happened to those guys...Almost like they never existed...hmmmmmmm...

They went into the same black hole as our past CIA director. What evryone forgets is this regime has every tweet,email,instant message and drunken voicemail of every person in power. It is like J Edgar on steroids, most men are not perfect. Does anyone really think they happen to be investigating someone who happen to be e-mailing someone in a releationship with Petraeous, Please. I am sure they have the same on everyone in high command in the military, they are not saints.

Notice nothing on Petraeous or anyone else since?
