    The situation was a breakdown of communication and action. Someone was responsible for situations like this (the military always has people planning for contingencies like this) that person ether did not act or did not get the information and orders to act.
    That part may be beyond the control of the president. What I hold him accountable for is; his job is to make shore that he knows all the information about the situation, direct those under him to find out how this could happen in the first place, make sure that this does not happen again, and assure the American people of the facts and that all the things I mentioned are being done.
    When things like this come out (that the situation room in the white house received communication from the place being attacked) after the president and all of his administration were going on about a video and a protest for 2 WEEKS, it makes it hard to believe that the president was not lying to the American people for political gain.
    Do you have a source that a ship was in the region, and had the assets you describe? Also I thought we were talking about sending help after the attack occurred? Now we are talking about sending people before it even happens?

    There were two attacks; one happened at around four in the afternoon the other happened later that night. The first one they breached the walls and had a fire fight. The communication from the consulate was speaking of this attack. Later that night they attacked again surrounding the building that the ambassador was in. he and others were in a “safe room” built to hold out until help could come. The attackers could not get to them so they set the whole building on fire. The ambassador died of smoke inhalation from the fire. A separate installation was also attacked a few blocks away. That is where the survivors fell back to. The other three died there from mortar attacks on the buildings.

    People realize Obama called it an act of terror the next day, right?

    Than why did he and every person in his administration keep talking about a video and a protest for two weeks after?
    It’s not that he used the words “acts of terror” (in reference to the original 9/11 attacks), it’s that he kept pounding the story that it was a video and not that it could possibly have something to do with the fact that al-Qaida and their affiliated groups were not “on the run” as he has been saying to help his reelection.

    The timeline is much shorter than that. It took a few hours for help to arrive from Tripoli, which I think its pretty damn fast anyway.

And if the administration had been giving out false information, (they were blaming the video), it was his job to step up to the plate and set the record straight. He didn't. No matter what he thought personally, he failed at leading and allowed the country to being questioning the whole administration, himself included. That was poor leadership on his part. He should have nipped the whole thing in the bud.
