    There were 2 attacks, Doherty from Tripoli was killed in the 2nd attack. The point was that not even that JSOC unit could have made it in time to the 1st attack. You can't even apply your comments to your own context.

    You guys have such limited abilities.

    I have never said anyone could have made it. None of your post relates to anything I have posted.

    In that case, Stevens should be tried in absenthia for dereliction of duty and endangerment, because his incompetance got 3 men killed.

    The chump-in-charge has the authroty to override the ambassador's request for evacuation assets. He should have fought past his incompetance and excercised that authority.

    ...LOL...OK.....you were responding to context you did not understand.

    share with us how you could have done that in the few minutes prior to the Americans being killed
    impress us with your 'military knowledge'
    my prediction is you will absolutely run from this challenge

    You know Jack, you really are better than this, stop hiding and face up to the point you were addressing....or at least remember it.

    he coulda sent fest

    "one administration official" observed, "i don't see a downside"

    "another admin official who was part of the benghazi response" told ms attkisson, "i wish we'd sent it"

    too bad it was "ruled out from the start" by patrick kennedy, hrc's deputy

    obama's white house, according to obama's white house: idiots is us

    "We're portrayed by Republicans as either being lying or idiots," said one Obama administration official who was part of the Benghazi response. "It's actually closer to us being idiots."
    cbs above

    now, aren't you reassured?
