Benghazi is a single event with 2 tactical pieces. The first piece is the "flash mob". Armed, known terrorists present - this is the feint. There to create as much chaos as possible. The second piece is the attack on the annex. The annex attack was the objective. Congressman CA Dutch Ruppersberger(a democrat) was on Greta last night discussing the visible command and control exhibited during the second attack. The first piece needed zero command and control, it was the main effort where their resources were forcus.


There's nothing I can provide that can dispute this is really how it was intended to go down...however, no one here could do it with the info we have now. Quite possible though. From what I've read some attackers followed them to the annex and continued a firefight for an hour. Then there was the four hour lull. The second attack did not begin until after the rescue team arrived at the annex. That's when the mortars hit. I'm not going to jump to conclusions that the annex attack was the real objective...not until we can get more info. By the same token I guess I can't rule it out. But none of this tells me that these attacks were not "opportunistic" as described.

Decatur, I respectfully disagree.

- Individual small arms means opportunistic.

- Crew served weapons means planned.

It does not get any simpler than that. Trust those of us who do this for a living.

There was something that was going on at the CIA annex that still has not been addressed.

I have (and will always have) tremendous respect for the office, even when I disagree (but do not disrespect) the individual holding it.


Quotes like this are why I respect you and J. I used to be the same way but seeing the current and his party too often abuse the military (Abu Ghraib, numerous false allegations going back to John Kerry's testimony in the 70's) yet take all glory when they are in office (bin laden) strictly for political gain. I do not respect him and cannot because he doesn't respect the military men and women nor the citizen like myself.

Do you honestly think this dog and pony show changes anyone's opinion on Obama. The far majority of people who voted for Obama could give 2 shits what he did or didn't do, or what knew.



Winner! People are so fricking stupid, it's mind boggling.

It stinks but its unclear to me if any law was broken.


Nixon resigned due to the impending impeachment.
His only sin? He lied about knowning of the Watergate event. He was told what happened and knew of the cover up. He didn't plan or know of the intent to get the Thomas Eagleton photos.
But got caught lying about being told of it after and knowing they planned to deny involvment by his people.

I think it will be proven Obama lied to the public.Covered up a possible crime, or gross incompetence by his people.Letting a U.S official get murdered due to political reasons.

But lets not forget Fast & Furious might get him first.
