    That response had nothing to with my question, which was
    Then perhaps you can cite some historical precedence where Presidents allowed their diplomats to die and did not send in reinforcements or help but instead just ignored their requests.

    That does ignore the reality we had bombed them to help the people who are in power now set up their sovereign government. We did not invade, and yes that means that from a diplomacy standpoint we do have to respect their sovereignity. Plus it would completely undermine any efforts we made and the government that was established if US troops were allowed to march through civilian areas and act as invaders. None of the citizens of that country would have been OK with that.
    You had bombed them to help the people who are in power and now they wont help you? What kind of screw-up is that? Is is the job of the Obama administration to lead from behind drop bombs on people they don't like, with no regards for the consequences? Isn't that rather short-sighted?
    So because a country cannot make a legitimate war with the US we should be allowed to do whatever we want to and violate any sovereign nation's borders? That is a pretty messed up attitude on your part.
    Isn't that exactly what you did earlier to Libya? And what did it get you??

    So you are against 'patriotic support'? That goes a long way in explaining why you are in the same camp as Hillary and Barry.

    All this low-level information is readily available if you care to investigate. Further problems arose when this administration refused to let the survivors speak, and try to silence whistle-blowers.

    I believe there was a six man team from the CIA annex, including Ty Woods, with a MK46 machine gun and H&K 416s equiped with 40mm grenade launchers. Enough firepower to go in, kill many attackers, and send the rest running to regroup.

    In the excerpts released by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Hicks does not appear to offer any evidence of a military option that could have made a difference. However, he expressed his opinion that a low-flying fighter aircraft over Benghazi might have prevented the second part of the assault, the firing of mortars at a CIA annex that killed CIA security contractors Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.

    "If we had been able to scramble a fighter or aircraft or two over Benghazi as quickly as possible after the attack commenced, I believe there would not have been a mortar attack on the annex in the morning because I believe the Libyans would have split," Hicks told House Republican investigators.

    Yep, so funny that the #2 in charge believed it would have stopped the 2nd wave of attacks, but we couldn't do that because I guess Obama needed his beauty sleep before the fundraiser in TX the next morning....

    No, it was you who didn't know, which is why you asked the question.

    Before involving yourself in these debates you should familiarize yourself with the topic rather than just asking question. You've become tiresome.

    Do you think you are at work? You are on an internet fourm. I truly dont give a hoot what you post or dont post, in fact I dont know why I am even replying to this post except I am bored, have all my work done and dont go home for an hour. I am really not asking the question because I expect an answer, I knew I would not get one because you dont have one. You aint the first to tell me I have become tiresome, I am on my third wife.
