    Oh but a F22 ? Nah, that would have taken days and days and days.

    Again United, IF your bs assertion is remotely close to the truth, why weren't any back-up military scenario's even considered let alone put into place after a BOMB had blown a hole in the Embassies Wall ?

    After repeated request for more security were ignored ?

    And dont try to float the lie again about lack of funds when your President had added another 6 trillion to our debt by the time Benghazzi was attacked.

    This is about to get ugly for Clinton and company.

    But note how the only mention on cnn.com is a small item under "Politics". This is a major story that most media is trying desperately to ignore.

    Really, try flying over Langley Air Force Base and see how fast some F-22's join you up there. It will make your head spin.

    The jets in question were in a Italian airbase, and I believe they were f-16s, not f-22s.
    The issue is that there were no tanker aircraft to provide refueling for the fighters. They could not find a tanker aircraft.

    I posted the link in Post #17. Fenton put us onto those quotations and when I Googled around, Snopes popped up.

    When I saw all of them, it was like an Aha! moment we sometimes have. I've read on DP forever that Bush lied! Bush knew there weren't WMD's. He lied to the American people! He's the worst president in the history of our country. And here it is. Even during the Clinton Administration (where 7 of those quotes are taken) Democrats believed Hussein had WMD's -- even going so far as writing President Clinton to take action:
    WTH is snopes.com?

    Lets pretend what your'e saying here is true, given that everything thats come from the administration since Sept 12 has been a HUGE LIE.

    Your'e admitting that after a attack on their compound that blew a hole in the wall of the embassy wall the Obama administration ignored their pleas for help and more security and didn't even make sure military assets were in the area.

    Obama and Hillary lied, I dont know about you but I don't like being lied to. .

    The whistleblowers testimony today proved that. Who told them to stand down ?

    It's so laughable that people actually think Colbert and Comedy Central are "credible sources" of news and information. How comically embarrassing.

    For the sake of understanding the controversy around Benghazi can be seperated into four areas: before the attack, the first attack which killed the ambassador, the second attack that came forty five miniutes later which killed the two marines, and the aftermath.

    The order to stand down, to my knowledge, came after the first attack had ended. The special forces team of four people were told to stay put in tripoli because the embassey there could have been targeted next.

    And when should they have launched the jets? At the start of the first attack when no one had a clue what was going on?

    Let's look at what you said and what you suggested. Firstly you suggest by your last sentence that "they" knew in advance how long the attack would last and, therefore, they knew in advance that they couldn't get there in time? Is that right? I wonder how they knew that. Then you suggest that our Air Force would operate a fighter air base that didn't have tankers. Fighters are tactical weapons. They need to respond to emergencies quickly. they can't do that without tankers. Are you certain there are no tankers at Aviano Air Force Base just because somebody suggested there weren't? Why would they operate a fighter base without tankers? Why would an Air Force Base be unable to respond to a military crisis? It doesn't make sense. Have you asked this question or have you just swallowed what the political hacks fed you. The fact is they didn't try. They threw up their hands and gave up. You are supporting that. Why?
