It is a collection of stupidities. They can sniper rabbits from aircraft now, can easily see who is and isn't armed, and the comment about sending aircraft from NC was absurd. There were TWO carriers offshore.
Remember Obama explaining how aircraft can land and take off of aircraft carriers? Now he's claiming he forgot about that?
The OP is crap. The Secretary of Defense has already stated they pro-actively decided NOT to take any actions. Remember that press conferance statement he made?
