In fairness, generals can WANT to do many things, and they can be AWARE of many things, but they CANNOT DO ANYTHING unless and until they are ordered to do so by a competent authority. Gen. Ham would have been guilty of many violations of the UCMJ and other Title 10 laws if he had acted in Benghazi without orders.

 

President Barack Obama was nowhere to be found the long and fatal night of September 11, 2012 when Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were assassinated in an attack on the U.S. Mission Outpost in Benghazi, Libya. 

Finally, five months after the terrorist assault, the American people and the families of those brave slain Americans find out that even though live video was being streamed back to Washington, even though requests for backup had been sent, the President left it to others...
