    I don't think that is any great loss , particularly considering the identity of the Americans concerned --- direct friends and relatives excepted .
    God knows how many civilians including masses of women and children America kills every year -- defined in various ways to divert responsibility .

    The story is no surprise. The surprise would have been that the mission was staffed with State Department employees. They don't like to go to combat zones..... And I have said since this story broke that the ex seals were CIA contractors, not State Department.

    You may understand this:

    excerpt

    The military is preparing a timeline from the night of the Benghazi attack and plans to outline what assets were available to commanders in the region, including AFRICOM commander General Carter Ham, who was visiting Washington, DC on September 11 and was in the Pentagon overseeing the operation that night.
    Pentagon spokesman George Little says, “On the night of the attack on American personnel and facilities in Benghazi, there were no armed unmanned aerial vehicles over Libya, and there were no AC-130s anywhere close.”
    On Thursday, the CIA excluded Fox News from a briefing for a small group of reporters in which they provided a timeline from the night of the attack in which they explain that at 5:15 a.m. (7 hrs and 28 minutes after the attack on the consulate began) five mortars are fired at the annex, three of them striking the roof and killing Woods and Doherty.
    The CIA told the Washington Post’s David Ignatius that “the rooftop defenders never ‘laser the mortars’ as has been reported,” a reference to an earlier Fox News report. The CIA added the “defenders have focused their laser sights earlier on several Libyan attackers, as warnings not to fire.”

    I understand what is written in the article. I will have to check other sources before I comment. But I know that we have a major airbase close enough to have F15s on target within 1 hour. Not sure the time on target for an AC 130 from that base.

    Do you mean Aviano Italy? Its over a thousand miles away. Is an F 15 the right sort of aircraft for that distance and application?

    CIA confirms role in US consulate attack in Benghazi


    The US consulate in Benghazi that came under attack by militants on September 11 was mainly a secret CIA operation, shedding new light on the deadly assault.


    excerpt:


    The Wall Street Journal said the consulate was being used as a CIA operation, adding that of the 30 American officials evacuated from Benghazi following the assault, just seven worked for the State Department.


    It also identified the two security contractors killed in the attack former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty as working for the Central Intelligence Agency and not the State Department.

    In a break from tradition, it said CIA Director David Petraeus did not attend the ceremony when the coffins arrived back on American soil in order to conceal the CIA operation in eastern Libya.


    It said the nearly two dozen CIA operatives secretly worked out of a separate building known as the "annex," where officials at the consulate had retreated following the initial attack before coming under fire again.

    (this is why they have been reluctant to talk)
    So, the CIA confirms they had an operation in the consulate. Does that in any way explain the lies from the Obama administration?

    You mean in not exposing a covert operation?

    Libya is bleeding weapons all over Africa.

    There are refueling aircraft at the NAS on the island of Sicily. Your point has failed.

    You may be surprised at the facts, Don.. You have assumed a great deal.

    Fox fueled hysteria over Benghazi.

    No I don't mean Aviano.

    Agreed that the F-15 is not the best platform for that sort of mission, but it could have broken the will of the enemy.
