    Military timeline from night of Benghazi attack begs more questions


    Military timeline from night of Benghazi attack begs more questions

    According to the senior U.S. defense official who briefed reporters on the timeline, “There has been a great deal of speculation about the use of or desirability of military responses. Some have indicated manned and unmanned aircraft options would have changed the course of events. Unfortunately, no aircraft options were available to be used or effective.”



    According to a source who debriefed those who were at the CIA annex that night, “When they asked for air support, they were told they could have an unarmed drone.”

    There is much to question here. Why did it take so long for the special forces C-130 to get there? Did the Libyans refuse permission to enter their air space? Did Obama get cold feet and decide not to go in? Why does the Obama admin keep suggesting that F-16's would have been ineffective, when they have been killing Jihadists for a decade? This too smacks of the One getting cold feet about using close air support. They always add the effective or targeting caveat, when discussing the availability of CAS. Now, Patreus and Clinton are probably going to claim the inability to get in front of a House committee investigating this matter. They can't hide forever.

    I think Obama withheld air support. I think he tried to cover up the incompetence of the CIA/State Libyan operation by blaming it on a video and not Muslim terror groups.

    If this had happened on the eve of a George Bush election, the media would have turned the homes of everyone involved into a camp site. But, since the One was the incumbent, they yawned and lacked much curiosity. Such is the state of the US mainstream media.

    Would straffing Benghazi have saved the 30 Americans who got out?

    They killed americans. They're murderers. They deserve straffing and worse but our muslim supporting presidebt was too busy apologizing and blaming a fictitious video.

    So our F-16s killing other American would have been the appropriate response?

    You know Benghazi was also full of Brits, Turks etc.

    IT might have stopped them from being wounded. Do you know how many were wounded?

    And, of course, it might have saved the lives of the two dead Americans at the annex.

    You mean the liberal media speed pass will reward the cover-up and stonewalling.
