All of this time wasted handwringing over the response or lack of response and who is to blame for it when we should be talking about the reasons for the attack, and countless other attacks, and why they occured in the first place, which is of course American meddling.
What I stated in my post was what I have been told by many people who have never been on DP or any other internet site, but feel something should have attempted to help those under siege. It didn't help when the explanations for that incident kept changing, either. As time passes, we are learning more about that unfortunate time, and eventually the truth will be known. Sad, but that's life.
Benghazi report: AFRICOM general offered ambassador help before attack | Navy Times | navytimes.comThe report faults the military for being unable to help when needed. “No U.S. military resources in position to intervene in short order in Benghazi to help defend” the U.S. facilities in Benghazi, it says.
Yet it points out that Stevens had rejected additional security. The Defense Department had provided a Site Security Team in Tripoli, made up of 16 special operations personnel to provide security and other help. The report says the State Department decided not to extend the team’s mission in August 2012, one month before the attack.
In the weeks that followed, Gen. Carter Ham, the head of Africa Command, twice asked Stevens to employ the team, and twice Stevens declined, the report said.
The report also says, “Intelligence analysts inaccurately referred to the presence of a protest at the U.S. mission facility before the attack based on open source information and limited intelligence, but without sufficient intelligence or eyewitness statements to corroborate that assertion.”
Considering the latest release and Jay Carney's ridiculous bald face lie that it wasn't related to Benghazzi, I think its smart to assume anything thats been said in defense of the White Houses unprecedented Politicizing of Four dead Americans is dubious at best.
When it came down to it, the order for Military action could have only come from Obama and no one seems to know where he was on the night of 9/11.
