For seven hours they were under attack and we can't get any help to these people bS. This is the biggest cover up in the history of this country all because of an election campaign. I am not sure anything will come of this because of the corruption and the cess pool that is DC. The fact that this was covered up to get this guy re elected is treason. Why mitt romney let him off the hook in the second debate was when I knew the fix was in and he was a cissy like McCain was in 08, the republican party had a chance to bury this guy and pussed out again. We have gotten what we deserve.
To be fair, seven hours isn't really that long. We have the benefit of 20/20 hindsight and countless news articles and being able to run over all these scenarios in a no stressful setting.
We're there mistakes made prior to and during the attack. Absolutely. Mostly due to fog of war probably. That doesn't excuse it but I don't think there was anything nefarious about it. Just incompetence and shitty luck.
Also, they may have been trying to keep unnecessary players, like the Brits, out of it due to some kind of CIA operation in the area. They made a gamble and lost big. That is speculation on my part though.
The real mystery here is why blame it on a video for so long? Why alter the talking points to avoid the word terrorism? They would have egg on their face if they had just admitted it was a terrorist attack and they had been caught off guard but now it's just going to make them look worse.
But he did get elected, and managed to deflect the issue for eight months so that the majority of Americans wouldn't know WTF YOU were talking about if you said the words Benghazi, Ambassador Stevens, or Muslim outrage video anymore.
So it looks like the admin has won this one regardless of any facts that come out now.
