the troops in Iraq had the weapons, back up, intelligence etc that was needed to do their job...all the human beings you mentioned were attacked at a time when they were not prepared or warned. They were slaughtered because SOMEONE refused to allow local assets to help. You can't compare a planned, equipped action with a terrorist attack. If you are comparing Benghazi with Iraq...how about comparing the way the war in Iraq was run but they way the war in Afghanistan is being run????
