Everything went to plan except for one thing, the media reported on it. They didn't care that anyone died and it was probably a high risk, off the record mission and when it failed.... Oh well.... Then the unexpected happened, the media reported on it and the politicians got caught off guard.

That doesn't even make sense. Why would the media not report the fact that one of our consulates had been massively attacked? And that our ambassador had been killed along with others? That seems like something that the media would hit on. Regardless of how in the tank they are for Obama.

Same thing as "Fast and Furious" they wanted/expected ppl to die but they didn't plan for their plan to be exposed bc the media dug a little deeper than they wanted. Same thing with Benghazi, the media dug deeper than they wanted and the YouTube video story was busted.

Like Obama said to 60 Minutes, "bumps in the road...".

Pathetic and horrifying.

Know how I know youre FOS? I've never seen you once show any "pathetic and horrifying" emotions when speaking about the lives of the 4500 Americans who died in a senseless war yet multiple multiple posts like this over the loss of 4 men.

Thats pathetic and horrifying.

But then again, arent you the guy who just voted in his first election? Perhaps you've been in a coma. If so, my bad.

The media reports it, but only the people with a hardon for it care.

The people on this board think they're so objective but they're just caught up in the emotions of it like everyone always is.

All this information has been out for months.

If only Obama were president. He'd bring the troops home.

This is FAR worse than that or Watergate. This fiasco would have broke Obammy's re-election.

As has already been mentioned in other threads, it took a lot longer for Watergate. This info has been available to those who cared enough to search for it, but for those who casually turn on the news before / after work, there is only one option (only on cable) where they might hear it.

My emotions stem from a president lying about national security issues two months prior to an election where that would be a very relevant issue. A lie which also tried to make excuses for extremists killing a US ambassador for the first time since Carter, and that incarcerated an innocent man.

I don't like Obama, true, but I don't like ridiculous lies and cover ups, either.

I'm confused a bit. Are we talking six of one or a half dozen of the other?

re: Pentagon "no stand down order sent.. we just told them not
For the record, Gen. Dempsey is not a commander. By law he is the principal uniformed adviser to the President. He cannot direct action to a combatant commander. He can convey directives from the NCA.

The proper chain of command that night was POTUS or SecDef to the AFRICOM commander.

One of those three directed them not to go.
