Be Careful

Prairie, I expected the name calling. However, intellect is the battleground I prefer. So, when Jim Carter tried to rescue the hostages from the embassy in Iran that was not a US Military Mission? When the students in Grenada were rescued that was not a military mission? When the jets scrambled to take down a civilian airliner (Flight 93) on 9/11 that was not a US mission? Please. Anyone who has gone to any military war college knows a country has four instruments of Power and they are Diplomacy, Economic, Information and Military. In the case of Benghazi, diplomacy failed, information and economics were not effective. On the night of 9/11/12, the only instrument of power left for the US was military and they failed to even try. What kind of power does that demonstrate? What kind of faith or message does that give to those who put their life on the line for this country? The argument is and continues to be which numerous senior military folks as cited in my comments and the article I provided; why did we not respond? What hindered their ability to respond? Where is the Adapt and Overcome mentality?

If you would do some research, the US Special Forces in Tripoli, Lt Col Gibson, was ready to go to Benghazi. He was told to “stand-down.” Someone gave him that order. Blind support of the military or anything else is blind and allows majority catastrophes, not just running into a wall.

To not learn from mistakes or at least question major events is to wallow in the mud claiming to be clean. No society can exist for long if it does not learn from its mistakes and use its power effectively and appropriately.
