I haven't read the whole thing yet, but the first real whopper turns up on page -- about 'husbanding resources' to put security where it is most needed. What crap. How can anybody rationalize unarmed non-military guards at a U.S. diplmatic mission in a terrorist-ridden hell-hole while fancy European missions have their personal Marine guards aplenty? We have armed guards here at the consulate in TORONTO, for cripes sake. Page is a blatantly politicized attempt to shift blame to a Republican House. What a gutter move.
"NoT enough time for armed U.S. Military assets to have made a difference." That is so much horse hockey. From beginning to end, assuming reports are correct, the assault on the compound lasted nearly seven hours. Are we to believe that there are no US Navy warships in the Mediterranean. No aircraft carriers, no Marines on board those ships, no armed drones anywhere in the area. Again I say horse-hockey. Our Commander-in-Chief and his staff failed to do their jobs and Americans died.
Why do we need secuiety anymore. Aren't the terrorists all pooped out or on the run? That's what our messiah tells us. Besides give him a few more months and there won't be any country to secure. He's a genius at solving problems isn't he. That's how he got reelected I'm guessing....just buy your way into office and you don't have to worry about real voters...
highlights - lack of response besides inner 'team' i.e. the two locations in Bengahazi - two hours to launch private jet from Tripoli /w 7 man security team - focus on 'temporary' designation which directed spending & policy decisions by State department - below minimum standard tactical & operational training for close protection team - indigenous 'troops' nearly useless - initial response by close protection team (4 man) seemed to focus on 'perimeter/zone' rather than 'asset' based response - i.e.) only one c.p.o. was with Ambassador - focus was not immediately on ex-fill/escape but barricade/wait a) why was this? b) what was ex-fill/escape contingency plan if there was one?
How many (commoner) soldiers have died since then in Afghan? No idea? I guess they aren't important like the Ambass. Didn't go to ivy league, not from the same social circles. Certainly don't want my daughter to marry them.
What makes me sick is how the media did their best to bury this story to protect their Messiah. Whenever anyone brought it up, it was cast as a "witchhunt". If this happened under Bush or any Republican, the media would have crucified him and liberals would be screaming for impeachment and imprisonment. Obama and his goons get a free pass on everything, they can do no wrong to certain people in this country.
Awesome site you have here but I was curious if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics talked about here? I'd really love to be a part of group where I can get responses from other experienced people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks a lot!
