Benghazi: A Dereliction of Duty

I wonder when the two men who died on the roof firing a machine gun realized that nobody was coming to their defense? Having been SEALS, they would have known about emergency responses. It galls me to my core to think the government of the United States abandoned them. I know that FNC reported a team came to rescue some of the staff in the safe house. How many and when? At least on this operation all the details are not out on the front page of the WSJ - unlike when " BHO killed" OBL. Since this one is not favorable to this administration, the lid is on - and in this case I think we need to know what happened.

I wish this blog had a "like" button. I hadn't considered this fact, that the OBL operation was revealed in too much detail, while the Benghazi fiasco has been lied about. It does strike me, however, that even when the OBL operation was exposed, there were several different stories being told by the administration. It was because of the conflicting stories that the SEALs broke their silence to set the record straight. But that was the SEALs; do we expect anyone in the State Department to break their silence and spill the whole story?

Within two hours of the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012, that resulted in the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, an email was sent to the White House and State Department.

That first email was sent at 4:05 PM-ET (10:05 PM in Benghazi) and specifically mentioned that the Libyan group called Ansar al-Sharia, an al-Qaeda affiliated group, had claimed responsibility for the attacks. Fox News...
