How many Marines would you have stationed there? 100? 100? The facts is conservatives are nothing but arm chair QB's. If this blah blah blah...There was not request to President Obama to have Marines at Benghazi and the Ambassador DID NOT Request any to President Obama...Such a stupid poll by idiot conservative.
It's a double edged sword, and the poll didn't give enough specifics. If you put Marine s in there w/o the proper Rules of Engagement then they either A) would've been slaughtered too or B) would've stopped the attack but been accused of crimes by the Obama administration.
We also know that there was a drone overhead viewing the full assault in real time. The Obama regime is lying to the American people, we all know it and would like him impeached if not tried for treason.
There is no doubt in my mind Odumber was elected due to bleeding heart liberals who still think we should make more reparations for slavery our ancestor's participated in. I do not believe in it, I believe all men are created equal, but do not hold with giving to minorities just because of past issues beyond our control. That is why he was elected, and look at the devastation he has wrought upon this country.
I am not sure if there had been enough Marines it would not have been a problem. It alos would not have been a problem if the GOP had not denied the State Department's request for 300 Million dollars for security upgrades worldwide. IT IS EXTREME HYPOOCRISY and another example of the GOP Congressional members doing everything they can to ensure the President only serves one term, whether the Country can survive their stated goals or not.
The military presence could have minimized the assault and possibly saved their lives, remember, the administration had been asked for better security and could have had something in the ready as in a rescue, the British consulate next door had already evacuated because of danger and our gov new that, it's just another example of a failure on this Presidents watch!
I believe anything would have helped. We don't know how much damage control they could have done. But this made America look like they don't give a $h1t about our people. Some people have mentioned, me included, BO and Clinton and the heads of our security depts aided and abetted in Murder by not doing anything. One thing if any help, drones or Marines, there would be a lot less terrorists right now. But then they are B O's hidden buddies. My openion
What BS! Maybe if they had actually assigned some Marines! Duh!! From other reports, 2 of killed were Ex-Seals, that responded to the MAYDAY. They held them off for 2 hours, probably with a couple pistols. A properly armed squad of Marines would have stacked terrorist bodies in the streets for days.
I am ex-Navy but will defend my military brothers and sisters against any political appointee that isn't qualified to shine a Marines boots.
Cj Lamb..... Oh, YES, I certainly did for four years as a medic in the United States Army. If Obama had his way, CJ, there would not even be an American Armed Forces. I just cannot see why a veteran of the wars for our country would want to vote for a NON-CHRISTIAN MUSLIM, let alone someone who WON'T EVEN SALUTE THE AMERICAN FLAG! Dude, get a grip on reality.
It's probably best we don't
