    Acceptable loss; hmmm, interesting...

    I wonder if the sentiment of those killed but could have possibly been saved would be, "wish you were here."

    No loss is acceptable, and apparently you don't read too well iether. Going to the Middle East is dangerous business; our troops know that, our journalists certainly know it, and those at the emabassy knew it too. So, what do we do? What did we do when Ronald Reagan sent over a bunch of people to Lebanon who were slaughtereds in their sleep!?!

    There's no there there dude. You'll have to accept that. You people are just going to have to go elsewhere to try and jam up Hillary Clinton for 2016.

    So you've already learned what those who were there had to say? I do admire your sticktoitiveness. There aren't many left who still blame the video.

    re: Top CIA officer in Benghazi delayed response to terrorist attack [W:222]

    From the OP...

    A U.S. security team in Benghazi was held back from immediately responding to the attack on the American diplomatic mission on orders of the top CIA officer there, three of those involved told Fox News’ Bret Baier.
    Their account gives a dramatic new turn to what the Obama administration and its allies would like to dismiss as an “old story” – the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

    Speaking out publicly for the first time, the three were security operators at the secret CIA annex in Benghazi – in effect, the first-responders to any attack on the diplomatic compound. Their first-hand account will be told in a Fox News special, airing Friday night at 10 p.m. (EDT).
    That was reported in the Accountability Review Board for Benghazi (ARB) report that came out in December 2013....


    '...Just prior to receiving the TDY RSO’s distress call shortly after 2142 local, the head of Annex security heard multiple explosions coming from the north in the direction of the SMC. The Annex security head immediately began to organize his team’s departure and notified his superiors, who began to contact local security elements to request support. The Annex response team departed its compound in two vehicles at approximately 2205 local. The departure of the Annex team was not delayed by orders from superiors; the team leader decided on his own to depart the Annex compound once it was apparent, despite a brief delay to permit their continuing efforts, that rapid support from local security elements was not forthcoming....read....

    And the circumstances DO matter. Because the Obama Admin deliberately and willfully dissembled. They trotted out Susan Rice on all five Sunday shows to repeat what they knew was a lie. Why did they lie? Do you know why?
    It wasn't a lie, nota bene. The CIA officer that wrote the talking points chose to ignore the repeated warnings from the CIA Libya Station Chief that the attacks on the compound were not a protest because he didn't believe him. Instead he preferred to believe what intelligence analysts and DoD in the US were telling him, that the attacks stemmed from a spontaneous protest. In short, he chose to believe people who weren't even there over someone who was. He also said he didn't distinguish between a protest and an attack because to him they meant essentially the same thing. The confusion or blame if you prefer lies with him, Ex CIA Deputy Director, Michael Morell.


    "..Morell deleted references to extremist threats linked to al-Qaeda in versions of the talking points and said he did so because he believed the information provided by intelligence community analysts and the Defense Department over the CIA's own station chief in Libya.

    Questioners on the House panel asked how he could believe it was both a protest gone awry and a planned terror attack. He said they were not "mutually exclusive."

    I think it was just three CIA ops who wrote the book. There were probably at least 12 CIA ops at the Annex altogether because that's how many heroism awards were given out.....

    "...The Department bestowed the Holbrooke award on Ambassador Chris Stevens; the Thomas Jefferson award to the personnel who gave their lives in September; the Secretary’s award to one officer who was seriously injured; and the Secretary's Heroism Award to 12 personnel who defended the Benghazi facilities...."

    A few were injured.....and that's another reason why Gowdy is taking depositions.

    Also one very important point with it all.....was that Hillary never checked back on her people to see if they made it out alive. She never talked to anyone after Hicks. Yet she was never questioned over this? So you can see how this can play out with protocol for the Team BO.

    Oh yeah.....the Chatter. That's what BO said they were listening to.
    How do you know Hillary never checked back or talked to anyone else after she talked to Hicks?

    Mornin Moot. She testified that she didn't speak to anyone after Hicks......not even BO andthat she didn't speak to Panetta until the following day. Hicks testified he never talked to her again after the first call. There is no way she can get around that fact. Shows a true insight into her character. She just didn't care enough to see if her people made it out alive.

    Which as you know.....will be brought to bear down on her should she try and make that dash for the Presidency.
