Default Colonel Ken Allard on Benghazi, Obama, and the Media

My son is an active duty marine. I can't imagine not being able to trust that the powers that be will defend him in his time of need.

I was disturbed and disgusted about this September 12th, and now I'm FURIOUS!


...Vice President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. during his debate with Congressman Paul Ryan: “We didn’t know” because the intelligence establishment was still beavering away.
With all due respect, Mr. Vice President and Madam Secretary: You did know, and so did the horse-holders you rode in on. You also knew that the night-time battle in far-off Benghazi made mincemeat out of the prevailing Obama campaign narrative, “Osama is dead and General Motors is alive!” You realized too late that inconvenient questions were certain to be raised about embassy security in Libya. After all, hadn’t the Library of Congress raised just those questions in an unclassified study only a month before? Worse yet, you also recognized that, wanting to keep a low profile on the anniversary of September 11, no American forces had been placed on alert, despite the Libyan power vacuum.

I agree it was a mistake the administration made; but I honestly believe the real issue is not something as simple as his campaign message. I believe these people like the Carte-rite Dem's who suffered a devastating loss to the presidential election of Ronald Regan are the same ones that Jean Kirkpatrick wrote about in her Monumental Essay, Dictatorships & Double Standards. http://www.commentarymagazine.com/ar...ble-standards/
This bunch believes in olive branch diplomacy! Go read her work it describes Obamas foreign policy. He thinks he's the freakin "World Community Organizer & Chief". He was trying to show the Muslim world that we have moved on we trust them now," see look no extra security on 9/11".

Thank you for your sons service- my family appreciates your family's sacrifice for us.

As I understand it by watching part of the hearings that were public, the Ambassador nor his staff requested more security.
I see this partially as a private security problem. People have asked "where were the marines?" But the local and mercenary are what we had in play here. Also requests came from Cairo 400 miles away. Events transpired quickly and these additional personnel could not have got there in time.
