um.. lets see.. according to your source there were planes based 480 miles away.

It also says the attacks lasted over 4 hours, implying that there was plenty of time for them to get there.

Nyet.. not true. the first attack started at 9.42 PM. All personnel were evacuated by 11:30 PM By this time two were dead. So by this time everything was seemly under control.

Second attack happened at 5:15. It doesn't say how soon the two former seals died. But there was a 6 man CIA team in Benghazi at that time, but they were not at that location it appears.

It was a CIA operation from the beginning. we do not send military planes over sovereign nations without their permission. Unless we want to start a war.

Did Bush start any wars based on how many embassy personnel dying on his watch? Do you know?


The attack lasted 9 hours, what are you reading? Where did you get that timeline?

Both your reports only say that there was a gunship in the area. They don't say that they were overhead. In fact, they say that they were stationed 480 miles away.


ReallY??? are you going to mince sh#t like this???? If they f*#king bird was on the ground, it was 2 hrs away. I Heard it was already airborne. It's a 2 hr flight!

The first attack started at 9:42. It was completely over by 11:30. I have no idea how fast they can get one of those gunship from a base 480 miles away. Especially if it isn't manned and warmed up and ready to go, but that would seem pretty fast. They had no way of knowing that a second attack on a second facility would occur 6 hours later.

Thats your basic problem blue. YOu heard and you believed without verifying anything. Just like Bush's weapons of mass destruction.

Newsflash, Obama won, Romney lost. I can only guess that plan B is an impeachment? Why else would this story have legs?

Ask yourself why an experienced Navy SEAL was in radio-contact with the higher-ups, firing on enemies, put a laser-sight on a target, and then 'lazd' the primary target. Why?

He thought he had back-up. He was reassured that the 130 was on the way. Why else would he paint a target?

Lemme guess, how would I know he painted a target??? Let's be real. Common knowledge.

EDIT;

4 dead Americans, illegal gun-running, cover-up, pick one....

1988 dude..

remember what happened in 1990? First War on Iraq from US.

Remember what happened after that?

We had weapons inspectors over there. Saddam gave us the run around, but our own inspectors were confident that all weapons of mass destruction were destroyed after the first war.

But God.. or some little bird told Bush that they still had them.

Even Colin Powell is embarrassed by some of the sh#t the bush admin pulled.

I was talking about your earlier post Blue.

This one.
You f*#king asshats don't realize what happened. 2 guys stood their ground and defended 26-30 people.

The people got out. The SEALs died. I don't think you realize what those 2 men did. Maybe you had to be there.

Yep! Along with all the other intel from other countries. It Was just US.

Curious you avoid mentioning the Israeli strike in the desret a few years ago. And why are there threats of Syrian WND strikes on their civilians.

Blue, I read the article and am still processing it. I might or might not get back later about it. But you saying this is rich:

Maybe you should follow your own advice! Read the story. And then question what you're being sold!


I distinctly remember there being a thread, no doubt about some social or political issue tht you disagreed with, in which there was a video posted and the OP was seeking discussion. You jumped in with your heartfelt and passionate perspective/opinion even though you had, admittedly, not watched the video. You went so far as to say that you didn't need to as you already knew what the guy (in the video) was going to say.

Same sh#t, it works both ways. Until that ends, if then, this wheel is just going to keep on turning and turning.

I like how you seem to go to bat for Assad instead of the "so called freedom fighters."

Might be my favorite part this evening. Carry on.
