Yeah, they are full of crap. If I was local O-god with a star or 3, I'd have AC orbiting and tankers stacked up and ready to go. It's not like everyone in the theater doesn't get morning briefings.

Bunker drills aren't anything but flight hours to fighter pilots.

Just as easy to keep them in the air and burn training hours as sit on the ground.

Not to mention that on the State dept. Web site they had
posted for travelers there were no threats for Sept 11th anniversary,probably because of increased security around the world.But in a hotbed of al-Qaeda attacks against British diplomats,American red cross,the mission in Benghazi already had been attacked before,Ambassador Stevens had written in his own diary he was afraid for his life because of a lack of security,and you tell me no one ,nothing could get there in time? First,how the hell do you know ahead of time you can’t get there in time? Unless you don’t want to get there in time. This is really pathetic
