Breaking news on Benghazi: the CIA spokesman, presumably at the direction of CIA director David Petraeus, has put out this statement: "No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate.
So who in the government did tell anybody not to help those in need? Someone decided not to send in military assets to help those Agency operators. Would the secretary of defense make such a decision on his own? No.
It would have been a presidential decision. There was presumably a rationale for such a decision. What was it? When and whyand based on whose counsel obtained in what meetings or conversationsdid President Obama decide against sending in military assets to help the Americans in need?

I have disproved of the rules of engagement too. There is a new general in charge in Afghanistan now. It’s his job to judge if things are set up correctly or not. If they aren’t, then change them.
Evidently he disagrees with us also.
In case you have not seen this......
Great, and then we take our chances with getting another Leftist in to run the CIA.
Talk about your lose/lose scenario.
“I’m gonna have someone’s ass in my briefcase.”
The Congress needs to put a hold on all orders from the Oval Office and stymie all efforts from same to circle its wagons or issue covering orders.
..and now,, join us for another episode of..

He won’t be running it for long.
Exactly! I believe this was their true motivation. They’re cowards and they deserve to finally pay for their corruption.
You are correct. I’m not sure what I read earlier today, but it seemed to imply there was one C-130 in the direct vicinity. It was the first time I had heard of one being there. Perhaps I confused topics and it was an old story talking about it being on location in Iraq or Afghanistan.
Sorry about that.
The fight at the annex lasted 6 to 7 hours. I’ve heard several figures. It would seem we could get an aircraft in there to help out over that period. Evidently the guys on the ground thought we could, since they were evidently lasing targets. If not, something else could have been done.
We did have the drones, and they could tell us what forces we would have been facing.
I do appreciate the correction the C-130s. Thanks.
With everyone taking turns under the bus, it’s a wonder that it still moves!
A bus divided against itself cannot be driven!
It’s not “window dressing”. One of the Alynski rules is to make a trouble maker a part of your operation, give him a job and make him responsible for the outcome. That way he can’t cause trouble with making trouble for himself.
I lean in that direction myself, but until it’s official, I’m still braced for the worst.
... in the Oval Office ...
... with the candlestick.
The good GEN carried the kenyans water on the video CYA A MONTH AGO? Where has he been since? What a shock he felt no need to correct his testimony to Congress. What a perfumed hack he is.
Has Kristol ever considered that Petraeus is telling the truth, and not, “throwing anyone under the bus?”
