    Pentagon releases Benghazi timeline, defends response

    you said:

    ...In real life, it takes GOOD contingency planning IN ADVANCE of events. Obviously, it was a cluster flukk that sent a US ambassador to open a school without sufficient security in place. Look at the map, amigos. Benghazi is on the SEA; we have ocean-going ships in our US Navy; we have sea-going Marines; we have sea-going SEALS. A basic contingency plan would have deployed a small sea-based fighting force on our ships in the Med, with airlift capacity; it would have provided ship-launched drones for surveillance and possible action, etc. Somebody screwed it up! State Department? Defense Department? White House? All IMHO.

    didn't this "old fart" just make that point by saying:

    WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE MONTHS EARLIER FOR NOT ANSWERING THE REQUEST FOR ADDED SECURITY?
