Airforce base, ok, we bomb the embassy, kill everyone inside and achieve… What? Gun ships, we bombard the embassy and kill everyone inside and achieve… What? The they would still have died and we would have made an enemy of Libya by launching large scale explosive weaponry right into the center of one of their largest cities. It wasn’t Libyans doing it, it was Al-Qaeda, how much collateral damage would that have caused to start shelling Benghazi? And would it have saved them? NO IT WOULD NOT HAVE.
They had troops they could have deployed within in an hour..they were told to stand down. We had drones in the air that could have pinpointed strikes directly at the group. We had a squadron of helicopters that could have been there in an hour..they were told to stand down. We had a C-130 with lasers on targets but no missiles were ordered to fire. Obviously you know nothing about our military and it’s precision with laser guided missiles. We can put a missile through a 3 foot window in a house if need be. One military general said all that would have been needed to break up the fight was a simple low fly over by a few jets and those terrorists would have scattered…because they are cowards.
Libya is not an ally of ours. Their new leader is part of the Muslim Brotherhood and a terrorist sympathizer. No one ever said once, to start a war with Libya. On the flip side, no one in the White House chose to help the people in the embassy. They watched them die. They watched these 2 guys on a roof for 7 HOURS fighting the terrorists. THEY WATCHED THEM DIE. THEY LET THEM DIE. THEY REFUSED TO HELP. What part of that do you not understand? I guess you are like our ignorant President and don’t think of these guys as “optimal” huh? We all on the right see where your patriotism lies now.
Yes, please. Let’s use the deaths of our brave soldiers as leverage against our opponent. Way to go, conservatives. A+ gold star.
Also, funny how I see no sources, here. Can’t imagine why.
You are about as dumb as the couch I am currently sitting on. IT’S THE WHOLE POINT! The fact that they were allowed to die like that is not using it as leverage. IT’S THE POINT!!!! THE WHOLE POINT. In and of itself. Without any political leanings whatsoever. As a “brave soldier” myself, me and everyone in my unit whole-heartedly agree with this post and think it’s a crock of shit that they were allowed to die because it wasn’t politically convenient to save them.
Also, all that about the jets and gunships and QRF (quick reaction force for you pussy yellow libs who have never served) is all true. You want a source. ME! First hand. Seen it done. This was an easy save. The commander in chief killed those men.
Here’s a video. This is what we could have done and how precisely we could have defended our embassy.
obama won’t even talk to the father of Tyrone Woods. He deserves to look into the eyes of the traitor that allowed his son and three other Americans to be slaughtered.
Doesn’t anyone in the White House care about what happened in Benghazi?!?
A real war hero, RIP Richard Winters
Im not gonna cry, IM NOT GONNA CRY!

Good luck Mitt. Thanks for giving it your all.
I WANT TO FUCKING CRY OH MY GOD )’:
Thank you so much Mitt <3 We love you!
I LOVE YOU ALWAYS
Such a wonderful, class act. I will miss listening to his speeches and hearing about him on the campaign trail. I still want to meet him, and maybe I will.
brb gonna go cry now
Well that’s interesting. He takes the exact message of the Republican party in his victory speech and act as if this is what he’s been promoting all long… How can people be so stupid that they don’t see this?
This whole campaign, Obama has basically been saying the American dream is dead and that’s why you need to elect him because he’ll ensure you’ll have an equal outcome, and now that he’s reelected he’s speaking of equal opportunity…
Fuck you idiots who don’t fucking see this blatant bullshit. You love the Republican message as long as it comes out a Democrat’s mouth.

Title 4, chapter 1, section 8 of the U.S. Constitution: The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.
seems appropriate to me to do so.
