F-16 aircraft were less than 25 minute flight time away from Benghazi. These aircraft carry laser guided munitions.<quoted text>
So you wanted a air gunship to fly over at night, in the dark, & kill terrorists but not civilians or the Libyans who came to help.
The seals on the rooftops were equipped with lasers so they could have easily painted the correct targets for these aircraft to attack.
Even if we had merely scrambled these aircraft and had them do a couple of low fly bys over the sites in Benghazi do you think that might have prevented these terrorists from setthing the consulate on fire?
I think I might just have a problem lighting a match if there was a couple of F-16s flying over me very low. In fact I would probably run away and try to hide.
By choosing to do NOTHING the Obama administration failed its primary responsibility to protect its citizens and its sovereign territory in Benghazi.
