The U.S. military has alerted two elite military units in Europe to be on standby if needed to respond to a deteriorating security situation in Tripoli, Fox News has learned.
In recent days both the U.S. embassy and British embassy in Libya have removed non-essential staff from their embassies.
A specialized Marine unit based in Moron, Spain, is in the process of being repositioned closer to Libya; and in Stuttgart, Germany, a special operations force assigned to AFRICOM has been placed on heightened alert.

"A specialized Marine unit based in Moron, Spain....
Maybe they should rename their base.
"We're from the Moron Base and we're here to help you!"
Well, does Fox ever win?
to hell with human lives no matter where they are, the obozo hussein will do anything to get Benghazi out of the news and his best avenue for that is to order the US military into action. Just like Bill Clinton did in Serbia when Ken Star had proof that slick got a nob-job from the WH intern, Monica Lewinski. Wag the effing dog all over again.
Or playing ball with Reggie
I’m listening to Rush. Not watching TV.
LOL. A Tommy Boy reference.
This all started back in late April. The government of Libya has effectively been locked down since then. To be fair the only control the government has had for the last two years is handing out bags of cash to the various militia groups to keep them from rounding the government up and executing it. They've had about as much luck disarming Libya as Rahm has disarming Chicago.
Yes, I think they are a little late to the party.
Can’t even joke about this horrid event. People should be in jail for this, starting with the crowd at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW.
I wouldn't whiz on Kerry if his pompadour was on fire. But Kerry is better equipped for this post and has anticipated getting the job since Obama was elected. He has hit the ground running. Obama likely has more trust in Kerry than he could have in Hillary so Kerry can be allowed more independence. The more competent and visible Kerry is the worse Hillary's lackluster tenure will be seen in contrast.
The distance from Aviano to Benghazi is 1680 kilometers or 1044 miles only, F-16 could make it in under 2 hours and still have enough fuel to take care of business. They are lying.
Get ready for Wag the Dog II, Benghazi Edition...
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Alright, that’s funny.
Moron’s next to McKeesport.
NAS Sigonella, Sicily, is only half as far from Benghazi as Aviano.
“The more competent and visible Kerry is the worse Hillary’s lackluster tenure will be seen in contrast. “
that’s the point and why I am suspicious.
Given that Obama was behind the rebels in Libya..it may be he has someone in there stirring it up right now.
This is impossible because the Military can’t get to Libya in a timely fashion.
We’ve been told so in sworn Congressional testimony by multiple Administration Figgers.
The accent changes the meaning...
There is a Spanish word moron which basically has the same meaning as the English spelled word.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
Those gentlemen have sort of a thing about rescuing people from the shores of Tripoli.
