"What Difference? At Least TWO Lives, Hildebeeste

We're getting closer to determining who sat on their fat ass(es) (or slept through the 3 AM call...)

...A Defense Department official told, however, that the type of aircraft that was used that night and the decision to use it were both determinations made by the State Department.

...According to a timeline released by the Office of Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, the chartered private plane took off from Tripoli and headed to Benghazi with the rescue team about 2 hours and 48 minutes after the terrorist attack in Benghazi started at 9:42 p.m. Libya time.

...After Amb. Stevens' incomplete we-are-under-attack phone call to his deputy in Tripoli, it took almost three hours for the U.S. government to get a solitary private charter plane on the way to Benghazi--and almost four hours to get that plane landed at the Benghazi airport....

Seems that the CIA "chartered a plane".   State was still sleeping in, or whatever.

After the first attack there were TWO dead Americans, including the Ambassador.

Then we sent an un-armed TV-broadcasting drone.  THAT made a difference, eh??

Too bad nobody--not POTUS, not Hildebeeste--called the military.

...“There is no question that we could have moved an airplane in there and we could have also put boots on the ground at the embassy,” Gen. Boykin told “But just dealing with the aircraft issue, we could have moved a military plane in there, picked those people up, moved them to Benghazi. And, in fact, we could’ve gotten people moved by helicopter, launched them out of the Sixth Fleet or the naval base in Rota, Spain.

He oughta know.  He is the ex-Commander of all our Special Forces.

There's another difference, Hildebeeste:  Goblins pay attention to what we do, and what we do not do.  If we had sent Special Forces--as you could have--they would know that we really do mean to protect our citizens and diplomats.

Your (and your boss') response told them something else entirely.
