At 2:39AM, now Sept 12, Benghazi time, a FAST Platoon, stationed at Rota, Spain, was ordered to deploy to the Benghazi Compound.
"On 11 September 2012, the Libyan consulate in Benghazi was attacked. The US Ambassador to Libya, J Christopher Stevens, and 3 other Americans were killed in the attack.... It was later reported by Wired.com 's Danger Room that there were no Marine Security Guards or other Marine Assets present at the consulate in Benghazi when the attack occurred. Security was being provided by local authorities and private contractors. In response to the events, a 50-man platoon from FAST Company Europe was dispatched to Libya to provide additional security at various locations."
NOW here is the rub. Leon Panetta had authorized TWO FAST Platoons to be deployed in Libya, One to Tripoli and One to Benghazi.
The one to Benghazi NEVER SHOWED UP----NEVER.
The other FAST platoon, and associated equipment, arrives in Tripoli at 8:56 PM, over 23hrs after the terrorist attack had begun.
The American People deserve to be told the TRUTH.
