TAMPA, Fla. This is the hometown of U.S. Special Operations Command at nearby MacDill Air Force Base. This headquarters dispatches our military's special operators Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines on missions in the most difficult and dangerous places on earth. It's also the place where "action officers" are burning the midnight oil but not necessarily planning new targets for our Navy SEALs. Apparently, a "good number" of SOCOM's staff members are busy preparing responses to the batches of inquiries about what really happened in Benghazi, Libya before, during and after the terror attack on the night of Sept. 11-12 that resulted in four dead Americans. Answers have been slow in coming.
Three days after the assault, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced that the FBI would investigate the attack as a criminal matter, not as an act of war. For reasons left to our imagination, the FBI didn't move fast enough, so the Obama administration appointed a special review board to develop a "full picture" of all that transpired at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi.
This accountability review board is being co-chaired by former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Thomas Pickering and retired Adm. Mike Mullen, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Investigating the murder of a U.S. diplomat is an assignment for which Pickering is uniquely suited. When he was President Ronald Reagan's ambassador to El Salvador in the 1980s, Pickering was targeted for assassination. As a consequence of the threat, enhanced security measures were put in place to protect him. Apparently, no such steps were taken to safeguard Ambassador Christopher Stevens and his fellow diplomats in Libya. In the absence of answers, one can only wonder why.

A huge if and if I was betting on it it'd be in the negative, though LtCol North doesn't say he probably would agree.
Thank you for the ping. When the truth comes out, here’s hoping that O’Beelzebub pays for his crimes. Keep the heat up, Ollie!
Amen to that! He took on the job of CinC and the buck stops there though he chooses to ignore it.
He’s an ugly-souled coward and unfit for the office he has stolen.
Thanks for the post and ping. My blood boils.
I saw the author who wrote LEADING FROM BEHIND on tv. He said that Valerie Jarrett kept canceling the raid to get Bin Laden because she was afraid of having another DESERT 1. This is where the American rescue effort for the hostages from the American Embassy in Iran fell apart. I remember watching an Iranian playing around with the blackened bones of an American Soldier. Valerie Jarrett thinks that DESERT 1 caused Jimmy Carter to lose re-election. I believe the decision was made at that 5pm meeting at the White House to not send military rescue. And that decision was based strictly on the fear the Obama administration had that failure could cost them the election. There was no concern for the thirty plus Americans in Benghazi. Better they die than the Democrats lose the election. And now we have this brave American as our leader for another four years.
Only one question needs to be asked for us to know what happened: Mr. President, did you order “cross border authority”?
That is all.
Hillary has it covered:

Thomas Pickering and Hillary Clinton (incestuous nonprofit relationships)

Correct, and I believe he’s been asked several times if he refused rescue aid and he wouldn’t answer the question. He’s a weak sister.
There's no doubt in my mind that Obama refused permission for political reasons with the upcoming election.
Your post #13: “There’s no doubt in my mind that Obama refused permission for political reasons with the upcoming election.”
Agree with your assessment.
Thanks for the ping jaz.
