    What you saw in that video was not "pinpoint accuracy". And as you heard @ the 40 second mark, it was said; "Try not to hit anymore buildings."

    And in times like these, screw pinpoint accuracy. If it wasn't there already, they should have sent it and more.

    Well lets throw in a CIA Network, Agents, Compound with Weapons and Arms, All Compromised and the loss of a Safehouse. That was also uncovered. Do you think that would include any sort of Foreign Policy with another country?

Why do you think the SEALS are all pissed off? They aren't stupid you know, they know a thing or two about how the military operates. The administration is treating everyone like they're six year olds, like they don't know ****. What we have here, is a failure to communicate and a failure to lead.
    There was another Team in Tripoli they never made it there.

    If you're worried about civilian casualties, don't you think firing indiscriminately into a crowd would cause that? I don't think you can exactly be a sniper from a plane, but I could be wrong. There's also the fact that usually when you fly warplanes into a country's territory, that's considered an act of war. So now you're talking about the potential for another 3000 troops dead to protect 4 people. Wars can escalate quickly. I think it's a reasonable question to ask about whether it's worth another war.
    What crowd? The streets were clear according to the Libyans. Check points had been set up. According to Libyan civilians no one could get in or out.

    LOL!!!

    When you consider that the firing was coming from an aircraft...at probably 1000 feet of altitude or more...that's pinpoint accuracy.

    Well one it could have been used to target the mortar positions. Also it could have took out the Roadblocks and so called check points that had our people locked in. They did have to croos over to the other side of the town and we have the report as to why it took them so long.

    Why wasn't it used?
    I think because Panetta wasn't sure if the CIA compound had been compromised. As it was holding Anti Aircraft Missiles. Surface to Air. SAR7s!

    How do you take out roadblocks on narrow residential streets?

    By blowing the Roadblocks to bits and pieces......so our people can get thru them. The battle raged for 7 hrs. Only took 45 mins for the Surveillance drones to get there. Ya mean to tell me they couldn't have sent in armed drones within that 7hrs?
