Boeing partially responsible for CIA and Ambassador loss in Benghazi
Boeings V-22 Osprey, which takes off like a helicopter and flys like and airplane,. You recall that thing that Boeing forced on the Military in order to bilk the government and taxpayer out of #$%$s. Well it don't fly to the sound of gunfire. So Penetta while correct in a way while trying to weasel out of responsibility for not sending helpl He said" we couldn't send anyhelp because we didn't know what was going on". You can't send an V-22 into a situation where there could be shooting going on.
It would seem that a fair question by the oversight committees to ask Penetta would be. Did rapid response require the use of the V-22, and how can they be a rapid response team with a craft that does not fly into a hot zone?
Remember how Boeing has steered the use of the V-22 in Iraq and Afghanistan? Because of its limitations and being a high value target. They are still doing it while they try to sell it to foreign countries.
