I watched CBS evening news and they said nobody could have gotten there in time and that everyone was very sad but it would have taken 9 hours to get jets in the air and then they would have to fly two hours after that. And that nobody in the administration had enough information to send any troops in harms way...and if they had known there would be a second protest by the mob they might have made a different decision. So I guess that is all there is to it right?

Nine hours to “get jets in the air”?? The terminally stupid will believe. Of course that’s the 53% of us that voted him in twice.

9 minutes, 9 hours, what difference does it make now?

If they want us to believe that they had nothing ready to scramble in a short period, at any installation in the world, they want us to believe that Zero is a U.S. citizen, a true Christian, and loves America.
