Here's the thing: Even if no request for aide was sent out, the Administration, including the President, knew they were in trouble and were under attack. A request for aide should not have been necessary. Aide should have been sent, regardless of requests. It is the Presidents job to assess situations such as Benghazi and act accordingly. Trying to fob it off as no request for aide is BS. They were watching a real time video and knew what had to be done, yet they(bozo)refused to do it. Bozo and the boys are guilty of murdering 4 Americans.
True in the Extreme! A Standing Order Should Have Been In Place. Why such an order was not in place is another question needing an answer from this zer0 crowd.
