    So your opinion is that the Embassy should have been left to fall? Leave "some three dozen" people to fend for themselves to rescue the 4 people in Benghazi?

    There were also protests in Tripoli that night. So it's not out of the realm of possibility to think that if the Embassy were left unguarded, that would have much worse consequences. Maybe that was the original plan - draw the Marine forces over to Benghazi so they could attack the Embassy in Tripoli.

    Of course, we don't know. But your contention here is that the Embassy should have been left unguarded to go on a rescue mission, and hope to Hell nothing happened to the Embassy in the meantime?

    Repeat it all you want, it's still a BS false narrative drummed up by the Democrats.

    The same Democrats that admitted that Saddam Hussein hsd WMD years before.

    Its also irrelevant to the Benghazi issue.

    A possibility for that silence might be that the thread topic is "APNewsBreak: No 'Stand Down' Order in Benghazi".

    Well, on to the next politically motivated investigation meant to clear Obama of any wrong doing. Useful idiot that Issa is.
    I love govt. investigations... I don't care who runs em'...

    I remember when Democrats used to like investigations too... but that was before Obama came along... they hate investigations now.

    We were not the only Nation in Benghazi, just the only one with a administration incompetent enough to stay put.

    Not quite sure what point you were driving at there Fenton.

    It certainly relates to the disdain Barrack Obama has for the US Military, their careers, and their lives.

    The connection should be obvious. See if others don't agree. Outrageous: Combat Troops to Receive Pink Slips While Deployed Overseas - Daniel Doherty

    And it has nothing to do with the fact that there was no stand down order. Stick to the topic, Grant.

    That's nonsense. With that definition everything becomes 'political' and the truth will never emerge. There are times when criticism is unwarranted and is genuinely political, like the silly 'war on women', but reasonably educated people should be able to tell the difference.
