It was a scandal then. Did you actually believe it was because of some youtube video with less than 50K views?

Really?

Your government lies to you constantly. Expect it, don't be surprised by it. They think they know better, they don't realize they work for us, the think it is the other way 'round.

At this point, it is the other way around. They do NOT work for us.

As we've been over, if they'd shown up as soon as they could have, they would have arrived just in time to be killed by mortar fire.

And then Republicans would be talking about how Obama didn't just sit and watch Americans die, he ORDERED them to die.

So more youtube views equals more credibility?

I doubt it.  Weren't F14s told to stand down on 9-11?  Sure didn't stop Dubya from getting a second term and farking this country in the ass with Cheney's dick.
 
2013-05-06 06:03:03 PM  
4 Special Operators? They already killed two ex-SEALs. Did you want a higher body count?

Jesus. And the reason they couldn't get a team from Europe was time. It was over before they could even write the OPORD. They don't just throw people into the fire. They need at least SOME time to prep before they get dropped.

The whole timeline was laid out already. Jets and 4 Green Hats? Yes, what a horrific scandal. I'm now ashamed to be a Real American.

There's nothing new here - all this information was already released and, despite Republican attempts to turn in into a mountain, is actually a molehill.

Why does that make it a scandal? Why is the initial assumption that the attacks were caused by that video, which were the cause of other attacks around the ME, how is that a scandal?

No, no it won't. Sorry.

Let's say the GOP and their tinfoil brigade is correct: what was the motive again? Is it still that Obama is a muslim usurper?

What motive would the president have to, seemingly according to the right, withhold protection and drag their feet and laugh maniacally while the embassy was attacked?
 
2013-05-06 06:14:35 PM  
Can one of the "this is a SCANDAL!!!" folks tell me what they think would have been accomplished by this?  Do you armchair generals really think that the State Dept. dude's decision was countermanded by the military on a whim?  Or, just maybe, they looked at the situation and realized sending in four extra guys was pointless and would only lead to another "Blackhawk Down" scenario.

I think this is the same as the birther crew, where every week there was some new evidence that Obama was born on Tatooine to jawas, and their little circle-jerk of sleuths would shout "AHA! Now we have the evidence that will lead to him being impeached and Sarah Palin being President and no black people in the whitehouse ever again ever", only to be crushed when they find that once again no one cares and everyone thinks they're insane.

Not sending troops into a confusing situation where they could have made things much worse by firing on civilians is a scandal?
Nope. Not a scandal.

Yes, because it takes brass balls to send other people out to die.

"I can can tell you that immediately upon finding out that our folks were in danger, that my orders to my national security team were do whatever we need to do to make sure they're safe. And that's the same order I would give any time that I see Americans are in danger - whether they're civilian or military - because that's our number one priority." ~ Obama

So strip the embassy of security to get revenge for an attack on a consulate?  I'll bet you guys would love it if both were overrun, right?

The derpers who are going to seize on this "interrogate the prisoner" to the original Red Dawn and are sure in their hearts that they'll be dispatching an M1A2 Main Battle Tank with Paw's over-under before repopulating Real America with the handicap lane checker what for down the Piggly Wiggly.

Right, and people with active knowledge of how a Team deploys says they could not have been their in time. Don't you think the President asked SecDef that question FIRST? I do.

If there was an actionable plan it would have been carried out. It wasn't operationally realistic.

Especially this 4 guys thing. That's just f*cking retarded.

The ambassador was killed 30 minutes after the President was briefed. How the hell is he supposed to prep a team and get them there and engaged in 30 minutes?

Stuff in the military takes time, and people tend to want at least a platoon to deal with a company-sized assault. Finally, hours maybe so, but it still wasn't enough time to arm aircraft and get them there.
