" If no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else ? "
the mortar attacks that killed the two victims in the annex came after there had been a lull in the initial attack on the annex.
should they have called for backup at the start of the attack, or when they were being shelled by mortars?
and besides when the attacks began No one in command knew what was going on. it was imposable to discern what was happening because it was pure pandimonium out there.
if one wants to nitpick about not reacting to the calls for help, then one could point out disingenuously that ambassador Stephan called hicks back in Tripoli begging for help, but hicks did not answer the phone the first two times because he did not recognize the number calling him was his boss in Benghazi.
again there was not enough information to clarify what was going on.
