Benghazi: A Dereliction of Duty

I said the same thing on these threads yesterday, and its no hyperbole. From a military and national security standpoint what we're witnessing here is one of the most aggravated and willful cases of dereliction of duty in recent American history.

We should remember the price paid by Admiral Kimmel and General Short for Pearl Harbor. One can argue that they were hung out to dry by the Roosevelt administration, but at least SOMEONE was held accountable.
