If armed forces/assets of the US (be they military or paramilitary) knew of the attack, had the means to get there, and had their weapons ready, was there no one in command of those forces at any level who had the balls (and a proper sense of obligation) to ignore a lack of orders to go (or orders not to), and just go? Is this incident an example of the kind of military leadership we now have – that we have emasculated our military commanders? When they write their memoirs, are those who were in the chain of command when this incident occurred going to write that they “followed orders” when the chips were down? Where are leaders like Alan West when you need them?
