Benghazi; the truth
Here are the security officers and others who warned the Department of Defense about the lax state of protection at the Benghazi offices of Ambassador Stevens. They warned and warned. They're grieving because America did not have their backs as it always does. They still look gutted and devastated by our lack of DOING SOMETHING. "Shocking"......"angry"..........
If this doesn't make you angry, I don't know what to say. I feel gutted, too.
Will anything come of this video having been shown on Sixty Minutes last night? Or will it go away again.
We let them down. We let down our brave people who do diplomacy and fight for us overseas in dangerous places.
"Keep fighting. I'm on my way." After being told the place is swarming with rebels...... "I'm on my way." These are men fighting for us. The best of the best. And gutted for the lack of support from our government.
I think this video proves that help COULD have come; the experts THERE know it could have. Also, the security planning they wanted to do would have prevented these deaths and they warned twice of how vulnerable those people were and then they were in the throes of putting together the third official warning but were kept from completion. Why?
