Atkisson has some credibility because she was the only one willing to report on Fast and Furious.

Put what happened here into context with, say, “Black Hawk Down”, and you’ve got 2 SEALs holding off 200 militants for 6 hours because they received a call for help, and you’ve got everybody else in the Pentagon and intel agencies watching the whole thing going down with a live feed, the particular kind of military equipment meant to disperse crowds like the one there that are only an hour’s flight away, and nobody in DC doing a dang thing. Send a drone to take pictures? Why not a drone that could have actually done something to help?

Maybe the military people can make sense out of this for me, but this just seems wrong. Very wrong.

Because the ambassador was marked for assassinations and the CnC didn't want any survivors.

It was posted here from a REuter’s story that we did rescue about 30 people, but were ambushed. VEry difficult to get a true story from these people.
