The night of the attack, according to the special op, they were training 3 & 1/2 hours away in Croatia.
"We have the ability to load out, get on birds, at a minimum stage. C110 had the ability to be there, in my opinion, in 4 to 6 hours from their European theater to react.
Gee, MATH not your strong suit ???
Send "help" into a sovereign nation, unknown situation, to do what...?
#28982 Jul 22, 2013
Anything would have been a life savior , but Hillary and Obama declined. That is what is wrong with this situation. They Declined!
Failed leadership is what we consider to be the cause. Argue it anyway you wish--but we have a failed leadership problem. Now you may call all the names you please--but because you simply do not wish to recognize the problem is not our problem. We do.
#28984 Jul 22, 2013
How sad. To think, no effort made.
#28992 Jul 22, 2013
Correct--however the ability to have security in the form of our Marines as in most Countries, was denied here, as result of the failed leadership of the State Dept. Requests for security were ignored and the lack on funds blamed for the reason. Yet the various administrations people blew millions having parties during this same time period. More excuses for their failed leadership.
Similar as the failed excuses of Ms. Rice sent to lie about some video as the cause for the uprising of the angry. This even angered the local Country leaders. Nothing but a total disaster of our failed leadership!
#28994 Jul 22, 2013
More excuses. Don`t forget the State, the IRS and dept`s were having parties while claiming they were out of funds . Obama went on a $ million dollar vacation. The defunding WAS Obama`s idea. Stupid excuse to not re-budget funds away from PARTIES. None of the 4 deaths probably would have happened if security had been given when requested!!Why else would you not give security? Another PARTY? It was just failed leadership all up the line!!!We all know it, you just want to wish it away!!

Under Obama there have been 2 embassy attacks and 4 deaths. Under Bush there were 11 embassy attacks and 52 deaths
Can YOU name the 11 Embassys attacked under President Little Bush?
The Democrats didn’t politicize them.
‘While there have been two embassy attacks and four deaths during the four-plus years of the Obama administration, this represents a significant slowdown in such violence’.
‘During the eight years of the Bush administration there were eleven such attacks on U.S. embassies and consulates, with 52 deaths. So why are these attacks suddenly front and center in the headlines, even as they become more rare’?
‘Benghazi was the first embassy attack to be politicized, as republicans in congress attempted to turn the attack into a scandal or controversy in an effort to hinder Obama’s reelection bid, and more recently to hamper any future presidential ambitions of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’.
‘None of the eleven attacks during the Bush adminstration were politicized by democrats in congress’.

you are a cool cat bushwhacker .but got question how is a bush whacker and a bush hacker alike?i hack lot bushes.
#29015 Jul 23, 2013
is the difference between hacking a bush and whacking a bush..
#29017 Jul 23, 2013
You again digress into name calling.
The news said Bush was at a school reading with a child.
Not at Home doing nothing and going to bed during the middle of a firefight.
Please explain what any could have done to stop the planes from flying into the buildings??. One was stopped by the passengers at the cost of their heroic lives.
The attack at Bengazi was by people, took 7 hours, help had been requested and never sent, help at the attack time was available but not sent and all you do is make excuses for the failed leadership. Shame on Hillary and Obama. This reflects on every American.
#29018 Jul 23, 2013
Even back then , there were persons of stupidity spewing comments they knew nothing about.
#29027 Jul 23, 2013
It so sad, but to pathetic.
The only Human Contact that Slewblomkin the Whacking Bush, has is on Topix.
One the one hand why not just end it all and take that OD Of Thorazine.
On the other hand, as long as Slewblomkin is here, He is not hurting "live" Humans!
We are "Taking the Bullets", so that Slewblomkin does not go out and go Columbine before he takes himself out.
"Rah Rah Team Topix" eh?
#29037 Jul 23, 2013
Sure, we should send ALL AMERICANS into a sovereign nation, then see how many dead we can wrack up, like a right wingnut F-UP !!!
5, 6, 7, 8 they're ALL JUST NUMBERS, when your point is to second guess & forget ....
who the actual killers were....
Love your hypocrisy about the bush dead. Didn't he GIVE UP on Bin Laden ?
#29041 Jul 23, 2013
On March 13, 2002 then President Bush said,“We haven’t heard much from him. And I wouldn’t necessarily say he’s at the center of any command structure. And, again, I don’t know where he is. I’ll repeat what I said. I truly am not that concerned about him. I know he is on the run.”
Bush continued,“I was concerned about him when he had taken over a country. I was concerned about the fact that he was basically running Afghanistan and calling the shots for the Taliban. But once we set out the policy and started executing the plan, he became — we shoved him out more and more on the margins. He has no place to train his Al Qaeda killers anymore.”
Later we would find out that Bush was no longer concerned about Bin Laden because his administration had already turned its attention towards what they saw as unfinished business in Iraq. Because George W. Bush was not concerned, the families of the nearly 3,000 victims of the 9/11 attacks were left without justice.
Because George W. Bush was not concerned about Bin Laden, 4,452 American troops have lost their lives in Iraq. Those Americans died because the Bush administration gave up on capturing Osama Bin Laden and decided to focus on a war that they thought they could easily win.
In the coming days there will be lots of explanations coming from the right of why George W. Bush deserves credit for the death of Osama Bin Laden, but the truth is very simple and straightforward.
George W. Bush didn’t care, and Osama Bin Laden lived.

The SEALS got Bin Laden, and Obama couldn't save him.
#29043 Jul 23, 2013
Totally safe under Bush, dead under Obama... HMMMM ?
Since: May 11
#29046 Jul 23, 2013
Bush didn't sit and wring his hands like an old woman, he had given standing orders to kill Bin Laden on sight, that was enough. When he was sighted, the order to kill him was already in place. Bushwhacker thinks our military people have no brains and have to be led like children. I bet he/she needs a hug.
