I was told once about a Navy SEAL in his whites who arrived at a bar on the waterfront to meet some friends for a night on the town, got into a fight with a motorcycle gang and left the bar as the winner. The Special Forces guys returned from Viet Nam that I knew when I was in school were just plain scary for lack of a better way to describe them.
    I don't know, it's 4 guys. A concerted attack could have just been 8 dead people. Plus it would have left the actual Embassy less defended, so maybe not a good tactical move.

    I'm stuck on what anybody hopes to accomplish. I don't see a crime here. Bad decisions, lack of leadership...but no crime. If you want an issue to bring down the President, I'd be far more interested in the IRS scrutiny of TP groups. You're barking up the wrong tree here.

    This was a orginized attack. I doubt that the presence of airplanes would have scared of the attackers, in fact they would have taken refugee in our embassy compound.

    I know our planes carry smart bombs that can hit a target, but we have yet to create munitions that only kill the enemy when they explode.

    What do you think the innocent bystanders were doing? Eating popcorn and taking bets on the winner? After about 15 minutes of gunfire, they were long gone. For the next seven hours and 15 minutes, the only people within shrapnel range were shooting guns.

    I was talking about our people in the compound.

    I know it's hard but ...

    ... and anticipating what you're thinking now, yes, to you he is an idol or you wouldn't sound like you do day in and day out.

    Wanna test it? Okay ... list 3 of Barack Obama's biggest faults ... and please avoid obvious nonsense like "He tries too hard to be bi-partisan" .

    A low altitude buzz would rattle anyone's bones ... especially if you don't know if anything else was coming afterwards ... and they didn't anticipate 436982-Royalty-Free-RF-Clipart-Illustration-Of-A-Wet-Businessman-Hung-Out-To-Dry.jpg.

    There were reports of gun trucks. What if they were anti aircraft gun trucks.

    I don't think you understand the objective in the inquiry. The truth is the objective - the people responsible for the poor decisions and negligence should not remain in a position to do so again. Obama is a lame duck, and getter lamer by the minute. Why would anyone risk political capital in an effort already being handed to him or her with the passage of time? Events like this only serve to accelerate it a bit.

    Actually that's a fairly common tactic - because it is successful.

    I know our planes carry smart bombs that can hit a target, but we have yet to create munitions that only kill the enemy when they explode.
    in a crowd of people assaulting an embassy at 0200 in the morning, I'm betting the true collateral damage would be low.
