So, there seems to be a pattern when this administration is involved in public safety OR in military moves.
Strong, brave Americans,trained to help and fight bullies- are told to stand down and leave. TO NOT stand their ground and fight, but to retreat.
And then mayhem ensues- and the American public is lied to, the strong party of conservatives are demonized, the Media smokes crack and ignores everything... people die, Obama uses it to take some of rights for the sake of the children” and we start all over again. on to the next chaotic made for TV drama.
What did I miss?
The part where he plays golf.
“What did I miss?” In this case one of the things that’s missing is complete info on the team that was ordered to stand down. All the reporting so far assumes that this team was highly qualified, well equipped und so vieter. But were they ex military? I can only speak for my own Marines but no one, repeat NO ONE, is going to back off or stand down in the face of an obvious life threatening situation. And no dumbass on the phone /radio is going to get a response when a dispatcher is shooting his mouth off to retreat. Phones have a way of going dead when the SHTF’s.
Maybe this team were newbies? Maybe they weren’t really loaded for bear? But if they left someone to die because of a voice on a phone then they need to be fired, prosecuted, dis-armed, shamed and otherwise gotten the hell out of any position of responsibility.
An earlier writer is exactly correct: First in starts the fight and takes charge. There is no other “system”.
