>When fully operational, the unit will be required to be airborne within six hours of receiving orders, providing the type of rapid response that the Pentagon says was not possible during the Benghazi attack.

Am I missing something? Didn't the assault on Benghazi end in less than 2 hours?

Some sources indicate that the US had plenty of warnings hence the scandal that is not a scandal.

the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted,

Timeline: How Benghazi attack, probe unfolded

Back in the day (BITHD), so the story goes, we tried to airlift reinforcements to the Iranian Embassy back in 1979 just before the hostage crisis but could not get overflight permission. through Turkey.

The Marines might have thought they were better than us Zoomies, but they loved our women, air conditioning and cold beer.  I saw a few tears roll down a few cheeks as they left to go dig sandy holes in 120 degree heat while I returned to my climate controlled quarters to enjoy a beverage with the ladies.

Recognizing that I volunteered as a Marine, fully knowing the hazards of my chosen profession, I will always endeavor to uphold the prestige, honor, and high esprit de corps of my Marine Corps.Acknowledging the fact that a Marine is a more elite soldier who arrives at the cutting edge of battle by land, sea, or air, I accept the fact that as a Marine my country expects me to move further, faster, and fight harder than any other soldier.Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong, and morally straight and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be, one hundred percent and then some.Gallantly will I show the world that I am a specially selected and well trained soldier. My courtesy to superior officers, neatness of dress, and care of equipment shall set the example for others to follow.Energetically will I meet the enemies of my country. I shall defeat them on the field of battle for I am better trained and will fight with all my might. Surrender is not a Marine word. I will never leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy and under no circumstances will I ever embarrass my country.Readily will I display the intestinal fortitude required to fight on to the Marine objective and complete the mission, though I be the lone survivor.

Marines have a new creed?

This.  Saw them do the same thing in  the mid 70's in Torrejon de Ardoz.  Protesters scattered, each making new land speed records.   Guardia Civil did not fark around with their little Uzi type sub-machine guns and their flat back black caps.  Shoot first, shoot again, shoot one more time...ah what the hell, one more time......then ask questions.
