So if I understand this; the military could not go without the POTUS giving the order, thus they gave the 'stand down' command and officers were punished for trying to 'go' anyway. Now he says it was a 'political decision', like/as the DOJ & IRS situations. I think that's part of the reason in the instance of Benghazi, it's always political with Obama. However, the CIA connections, the gun running and/or hostage trade are also still on the table for motivation to shut Ambassador Christopher Stevens up, dead men don't talk [listed as 'John Doe' on his death certificate per US request.] . What a President we have. What a Commander in Chief we have. Outrageous, in my opinion.
