... another idiot.<quoted text>
No sane person would think that the President of the United States of America should be the person overseeing the security details of the hundreds of embassies we have around the world, moot question.
The State Department is in control of the security, and who is responsible for stripping down the security detatchmment.
The Department of Defense is in control of the AC-130 and Force Recon Marine units specifically positioned to respond to an attack on the embassy in Libya.
Pay close attention here....
The State Department cannot give orders to the Department of Defense.
The Department of Defense had a plan of action and default orders in the case of an attack on the embassy in Libya.
Only the White House had the authority to override the default orders of the units specifically positioned solely to respond to an attack on the embassy in Libya.
Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down embassy security detatchment in Benghazi while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?
(You can answer the question of why Obama lied for two weeks trying to cover up the Al Qaeda terrorist attack against the US later.)
