Like I always say, you Repubs are the biggest hypocritical bastards on the face of the earth.The Obama State Department withdrew a 16 member special forces team from Benghazi one month before the deadly attacks on 9-11. Lt. Col. Andy Wood was the leader of the 16 member special forces team whose job it was to protect US personnel in Libya. His team’s mission ended in August a month before the deadly Al-Qaeda attack on 9-11. A six member mobile security team was also withdrawn around the same time. This was despite the fact that there were over a dozen attacks in the country this year.
“You don’t just passively allow Americans to remain under attack for eight hours at a time when you have forces within range and do nothing. The Secretary of Defense was in the White House at five o’clock within an hour of when the attacks started. He could have told him,“Yes. We have special operations peope and F18 aircraft that could be deployed right away. To have known what he had available, to have known that Americans were under fire, and to have done nothing, is dereliction of duty that I have never seen in a Commander in Chief from a president of any party. Outrageous.”
Combatant Commanders In-Extremis Force (CIF), which was in Italy. These are the “firefighters” of the U.S. military, who are always on call. Their gear and weaponry are always packed, and they’re used for precisely what happened in Benghazi. They could’ve been in Benghazi very quickly.
Incompetence or otherwise...ignore, deny, obfuscate, and lie.
Libya-Foreign Policy abject FAILURE.
Leadership FOR America again!
The GOP votes to cut funding for Embassy Security and when reality hits them right between the eyes, they want to hold hearings that are nothing but political theater to hide the real truth which is the fact that they are the PROBLEM. Did Paul Ryan vote to cut funding for embassy security???????? THE ANSWER IS YES RYAN WAS A SLASHER TO EMBASSY SECURITY FUNDS.
