Fox News - But U.S. officials argue "strafing the streets of Benghazi" without a clear intelligence picture on the ground could have led to Americans or innocent bystanders being mistakenly hit. Officials also feared an ambush by the attackers.
Yeah far, far better for your own guys to be shot and killed than a couple of child-raping savages to get shot to shit by your planes. The Americans are dead but who cares, so long as all the locals and the terrorists are unharmed, that's what's important. Glad to see they've got their priorities all sorted. [*spit*]
At 4 a.m. local time -- 6 hours and 20 minutes after the initial attack began -- former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were killed at the CIA annex by a mortar shell. The machine gun they were firing was caked in blood, suggesting they continued fighting after being hit.
Gun, as in one machine gun, are they seriously telling me that they just had one effing gun! When I first read reports that they weren't even allowed weapons I couldn't believe it. That crap can't be right. I'm starting to wonder now, did they have to steal that machine gun from the scumbags attacking them as well.
Hats off to those brave warriors though, 2 of them held off packs of well armed rabid dogs for 6 hours! That's gotta be some record, them Navy SEALs are made of hard stuff. God bless them and their families.
Coming back to the bastardry they were forced to pay for.
They also say they needed permission from the Libyan government to enter the country's airspace, though West, the former deputy defense secretary, dismissed such an argument. "If your ambassador has been either killed or captured and is missing ... you don't ask any country for 'mother, may I' before you come across the border to save your own," he said.
Bing West is 100% right, what sort of shitbag operation is being run here, your guys are being shot to hell, out gunned and on the brink of death and the fellows holding the big guns are patiently folding their panties waiting for permission! Now that I think about it, did the aforementioned officials actually ask for permission since they were apparently bound by it?
Perhaps they needed a meeting first to draft the permission letter, but it couldn't be scheduled because the piece-of-shit email server was down that day. And while I'm at it, where's the signed permission letter for the drone that was apparently hanging around watching those brave Americans get slowly beaten and murdered? Don't tell me you need permission to rescue your fellow citizens on the brink of death but you don't need permission to just fly around aimlessly in said country's airspace.
From what I can see president obama knew about all this and simply couldn't figure out ass from elbow the entire time and I thought he was the glorious warrior who killed osama bin laden with his bare hands or something. Couldn't the greatest orator [*spit*] in the history of the universe pick up the phone and sweet-talk Libya's current leader into giving permission, a tweet maybe, no, teleprompter broke, so too hard?
It's beyond belief but those poor Americans were essentially cut loose, swinging in the effing wind for 6 hours until they couldn't hold out any more.
One has to ask, would anyone have moved their ass after 10 hours, what if those SEALs were not killed and were down to throwing rocks and their shoes from the rooftop after 24 hours, would president obama have told someone to tell someone else to order someone else to put their ass on the line to try and save them and give him the credit for it off course.
One wonders if after 20 hours, if he would have dispatched the effing carrier pigeon to the UN general assembly to ask for permission for a meeting to ask for permission to try and mount a rescue operation. Think about it, was anyone formulating a plan of rescue? As verminous as it sounds, was anyone actually drawing up a flow chart, cleaning their guns, fueling the plane, pulling their pants on, doing anything to try and rescue them. Or were they all just huddled around the screen showing the footage from the drone hoping they'd just die quickly so no one would have to do anything.
And what sort of message does this send to any other Americans serving their country in some faraway dump - any trouble and you'll be cut loose, swinging in the effing wind, no mercy, no aid, sorry and all that. We'll pray that you die really fast and don't drag it out too long making us look like the cowardly bastards above.
If Americans do the decent thing this November and vote Romney into power, the first order of business needs to be some justice meted out to those who betrayed those Americans. It's simply not right that this happened and everyone just walks.
