To me, it’s still all about cross-border authority not being given.

Nothing I’ve seen yet cannot be understood within the logic-prism of no CBA being granted. Nothing.

I keep waiting for a talking head to bring it up. Until they do, they indicate to me they don’t truly understand the politica/military context of the failure to send a MILITARY rescue mission to Benghazi.

The pathetic ad-hoc CIA “self rescue” sent from Tripoli was not bound by CBA rules, those assets were already “in country,” and at the disposal of the acting ambassador or CIA station chief in Tripoli.

But the QRF in Sigonella (if that is a true story) could not move toward Libyan air space without POTUS and only POTUS granting CBA, within actual orders.

These orders, if they exist, can be produced at any time.

Occam’s Razor tells me no execute orders or CBA were given, or they would have produced the proof long ago.

What was going on in Benghazi that Obama does not want US to know? Isn't Benghazi located right on the Mediterranean Sea? So it is not as if ‘air’ power was the only option for ‘help’. There is no longer a question about what Obama did or did not do. He did nothing. Until we know what was happening in Benghazi we are not going to know why Obama refused to send help.

So, what you are saying, if I understand right, is that only the President could give the orders that would allow US military forces to cross the border, or go into, Libya. Biden, Panetta, Dempsey and Ham could all talk about it, but only Obama could actually say that American military forces could go into Libya. Is that right? I realize that you are writing for professionals and journalists, but a lot of people here don’t have your experience with military and clandestine matters and need perhaps a simpler explanation.
