    That america does not, and never did, exist. That phrase is a rather cliche peice of propaganda meant to rally patriotic support, but it has absolutely no basis in reality as the US has left many people behind over the years. I know you are a blind sycophant, but exactly what do you think a POW is if not a person left behind? I am pretty sure obama does not have near the POW count of other presidents.

    This was the first time that I am aware of that nothing was done or even planed on being done because somebody in the administration had a crystal ball or something, that knew exactly how and when it would end. That America you claim never existed, always did until this administration. Complete incompetence.

    I am sure hundreds of times over the years the US has made the right decision not to send more people to die in a lost cause. Your understanding of America's military might borders on cartoonish (to borrow a concept from another poster). Several years ago I read in Janes the US was the only power on earth that can lay significant conventional ordanence on a certain spot in the world, anywhere from pole to pole, that day. Anywhere. But the US is not omnipresent. There were no assets available that could have made a differernce. So more people were not sent just to die. During the election the Faux was saying there were armed drones overhead, companies of Marines just off shore or something, an AC 130 that could have taken out all the bad guys. None of that was true, the outrage is made up RW BS.

    You must have access to the very same crystal ball that those in the Obama administration used that night. Back in the 70's we had a somewhat similar situation happen, it ending up lasting over a year. And when that action all began, I don't think anybody thought it last that long. But the entire time that situation was taking place, action was being taken to attempt rescue those Americans. Granted, our efforts failed but as incompetent as the Carter administration was at least it didn't throw in the towel before it was over. The Obama administration has raised incompetence to a level never even dreamed of before.

    There was no possible way that anyone in the Obama administration knew how or when the Benghazi situation would end. All of them said screw it and went to bed or something else. Complete incompetence.

    This type of mindset and interpretation of the facts is what got America to where it is today. Hope you're proud of your "new" America. I'm not!

    Did they, or did they not have the ability to fly jets over Benghazi in low formation to disrupt the second wave of the attack on the consulate? Many say yes they did.

    Acutally, no. No "other words" are needed, the statement is clear enough for any reasonable person (this doesn't necessarily include all libs) to understand.

    I think it also needs to be noted that we did have assets there that were told to stand down and not help them. These folks ignored Obama's orders and went in and saved lives, killed many of the attackers, and ended up dying themselves from a morter attack. These guys should get the MOH, but will have to wait until there is an administration that doesn't care about looking bad when awarding it.
