Just one Specter gunship would have made a world of difference but this bunch of spineless cowards are so embedded with Muslim PC and Obama appeasement policies that they have neutered themselves. It is a disgrace to allow this so called CIC another minute in office. Now I really understand why the military despises him.

It wasn't Obama that made that call...

WASHINGTON (Reuters)- The Pentagon defended its decision not to deploy forces to Benghazi, Libya, as soon as the U.S. mission came under attack on September 11th, saying it would have been irresponsible to put forces in harm's way without better information.

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told Pentagon reporters that U.S. forces were on a heightened state of alert already because of the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington by al Qaeda.
But he said there simply wasn't enough information to responsibly deploy forces to Libya at the time of the attack.
"You don't deploy forces into harm's way without knowing what's going on, without having some real-time information about what's taking place," Panetta said.
Lacking that information, Panetta said he, General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the U.S. military's Joint Chiefs of Staff, and General Carter Ham, head of the U.S. military's Africa Command, felt they couldn't "put forces at risk in that situation."
"This happened within a few hours and it was really over before, you know, we had the opportunity to really know what was happening," Panetta said.

This storm is more extreme weather from global warming, same as how the U.S. is 68 percent in drought conditions, same as we keep having 100 years floods, not ever 100 years, but each year now. While the moron tea party denies global warming, the effects of global warming and of overpopulation are in their faces everyday. They want to ban abortions when overpopulation is killing us off, they deny global warming as it begins to kill us all off, they hate higher education when they could not get a job today without a higher education, they all live off of socialism while screaming they hate socialism. When is the idiotic tea party finally going to go the hell away? I hope before we all die from global warming.

I disagree. Within 2 hours of a 6hour+ firefight there was a drone overhead sending back real time video. And sending in a Specter gunship or a flight Warthogs wouldn't have been all that dangerous. But doing absolutely nothing is a disgrace. When I was in combat something like this would have been unthinkable. What you are hearing from Panetta and those generals is nothing but CYA and circling the wagons around Obama.

And if weren't for those two ex seals disobeying orders and helping out 30 more consulate staff would have been murdered. It is the administrations fault 100%. They had been asking for more security for months before this happened. If Obama, panetta and Hillary were in the same military as I was they would all face military courts martial for dereliction of duty.

And good for them. they are heros. They had eyes on the ground and knew what the situation was. that was not the case for the people on the other side of the planet.

We have protocol for sending troops into such situations for a very good reasons. Those two ex-seals would understand why that is so.

the reports, credible ones, that i have read say the drone didn't get there until the last hour of the attack.

We have protocol for sending troops and airships into foereign countries airspace. Are you saying that the military commanders should not have obeyed their sworn duty to observe that protocol?

What I am saying is that the Joint Chiefs, the CIA director. the Sec.Def and everyone else are ALL Obamas political appointies. This is a coverup of the highest degree and if the local ground commanders of the Air Force, Army, Marines and Navy had had any say in what went on it would never have happened. Obama is a lackadaisical, incompetent and political CIC at best, and a traitor at worst. There was and is no reason for this cluster [email protected] to have ever happened. This has caused what little if any foreigh policy gains during the last 4 years to be deemed null and void. Obama has no excuse whatsoever. The buck stops with him.

Off topic crap, it must the FOX drones who must change every subject to Obama.

It must Obama's fault you got stuck at a train crossing.
It must be Obama's fault your eggs landed on the floor this morning.
It must be Obama's fault your wife/girlfriend had a "headache" last night.
It must be Obama's fault your sorry pooch ran away.
It must be Obama's fault your stupid kid got an F on their report card.

Sandy's coming, that MUST be Obama's fault too.

Teabaggers talk, that it, TALK of "personal responsibility" but always have Obama to blame, no matter what the subject.

Can't wait to hear how Obama devastated the east coast.

Protocol....When on the ground eyes and boots, plus live video shows that our diplomats are under attack, protocol is out of the window. Diplomacy is moot. And you are wrong about the timeline of live video. There was a minimum of 4 hours that could be responded to. Surely you can see what the administration is doing. We own the airspace over Libya, or at least we did when Obama had Gaddafi taken out. And you are trying to tell me that that air superiority no longer exists? What were we there for? We can't even protect our own? Is the sanctification of the Muslim Brotherhood more important than the safety of our people? Frankly, with an attitude like yours of giving Muslim radicals the benefit of the doubt about this, it is no wonder that Al Qaeda is in a resurgence.

More like reinforcement for the Muj filth he seems to idolize. That god damned lying piece of shit is on his way out, and soon...VERY soon his ass will be sitting in a chair in front of the man for his crimies, and I hope they pursue the death penalty for it. That lying sack of shit should have been impeached a long time ago, and our Military which is apparently MIA on this issue should have done their sworn duty to uphold the Constitution and lock this vile son of a bitch up at Gitmo until we got the buiness of finding him guilty of his treason and sentencing his vile ass to death for it.

That vile bastard is the single greatest threat to this world in the recorded history of it. He has now become a murderer.
