Yeah but who controls the military? The top of the Chain of Command is the Commander in Chief or the President.
Failing to obey a direct order is treason in the military, punishable by death. As a soldier you don't get to weigh in what you think is right or wrong, good or bad. You do what your told or suffer the consequences.
I wouldn't think that U.S.Troops would actually attack Americans under order's too, but history tells us that isn't true. Civil War is a prime example of that. It's why the Constitution and Bill of Rights are so important,,,,even though obama considers it an outdated and worthless piece of paper.
People who show that much disrespect for this Country should be dragged thru the streets and Hanged from a tree.
Go Green we are gunna be needing lot's of tree's of what I see.

Libya has a radical Islamist government, sponsored by Obama, and armed with US weapons. Libya is now a training ground for terrorists.

What's wrong with this picture:'The wife is out ridin' her new Harley, and I'm home alone'? Yes I too am overwhelmingly attracted to late middle-aged women on motorcycles (cough.) It's probably the generous leathers with the stiching straining to keep up with the effects of gravity? In any event, how does one know she's out,'ridin' her new Harley?' Isn't Harley the name of the bartender down at Mike's Saloon? Oh... I see that's what you meant. You're describing a marriage that's breaking up by objectifying her - the wife - and then identifying the culprit. Sorry, DB you'll need to refocus closer to home.

The attack started at 9:42 Benghazi time. That is 3:42 D.c. time. It ended at 5:15 Benghazi time. That's 11:15 D.C. time.

I think you people need to read the transcripts from yesterday's hearings. Panetta is not following your story line.

Fox's Hannity Joins Right-Wing Media In Selectively Editing Panetta's Testimony

Following in the footsteps of others in the right-wing media, Fox News host Sean Hannity selectively edited a video of outgoing Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta to portray President Obama as "virtually absent" during the September 2012 attack on a diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya. In fact, Panetta testified that White House officials were kept informed of events throughout the incident.

On the February 7 edition of his Fox News program, Hannity said "a major bombshell was revealed" during Panetta's testimony during a congressional briefing that Obama "was virtually absent" during the Benghazi attack. Hannity then played segments of Panetta's testimony.

But Hannity did not air the section of Panetta's testimony in which he pointed out that information about the attack "went to the White House" and that Obama stayed in contact with military officials and was "well-informed" during the attack. Hannity also failed to air a clip of Gen. Martin Dempsey stating that White House staff "was engaged with the national military command center pretty constantly through the period, which is the way it would normally work."

Hannity joins numerous other right-wing outlets in selectively editing the testimony of Panetta and Dempsey.

Oh... wait... you mean they're not required to obey unlawful orders as long as they don't do anything about them? That seems a little counter-productive?
