How come you don't hear this on the Right Wing Media ???
"WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. military did not quickly intervene during the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya last month because military leaders did not have adequate intelligence information and felt they should not put American forces at risk, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Thursday."
"But, he said, the attack happened over a few hours and was over before the U.S. had the chance to know what was really happening."
"(The) basic principle is that you don't deploy forces into harm's way without knowing what's going on; without having some real-time information about what's taking place," Panetta told Pentagon reporters. "And as a result of not having that kind of information, the commander who was on the ground in that area,- Gen. Ham, Gen. Dempsey and I felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation."
...Wow....suppose there were problems at the Russian Consulate in New York.....
You left wingers can dream up fantasy scenarios, but New York is a bit more civilized than Benghazi Libya and I don't doubt that if the Russian Consulate in New York was under attack that there would be police there in seconds and troops there in under 15 minutes.
Can you finally see just how dumb and stupid you liberals are?
I am a retired army general I support the fact, never send in troops without a plan, to soothe you and your left wing low life comrades,.
I will add that you never leave a American Embassy unprotected in a hostile zone. Even a small detachment of marines command superior firepower and can call in air strikes and support troops from the carriers parked off shore.
Infact, the marines on those ships welcome seek and destroy missions to relieve ship boredom.
