Rumor Alert: There are stories beginning to circulate that four-star General Carter F. Ham, commander of Africom, was relieved of duty because, within a minute of being told to "stand down," he decided to go ahead with a rescue effort. Supposedly, he was then apprehended by his second in command.
We'll have to see if this develops further.
I received this email from Bill. He was just a bit upset.
Now Bill is not a hothead. He has had years of dealing with state and federal governments in various roles. But this was the last straw.They're the biggest fools I can recall. Panetta is a useless SOB...right along with Obama. These assholes were willing to sacrifice the lives of the Ambassador and others in Libya. It doesn't get much worse.Why hasn't DCIA Petreaus spoken up? Where the hell has his voice been?This is a pitiful excuse for a U.S. Administration.I am stunned as what is finally coming to light. Impeach the SOBs.Bill
What was the last straw? This.

EXCERPT: Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told reporters at the Pentagon on Thursday that there was not a clear enough picture of what was occurring on the ground in Benghazi to send help.All one can say is Obama must have a Middle East strategy that no one can comprehend. Yup, that's one smart leader we have.
"There's a lot of Monday morning quarterbacking going on here," Panetta said Thursday. "But the basic principle here ... is that you don't deploy forces into harm's way without knowing what's going on."
Panetta doesn't understand the IMMEDIATE NEED to react and protect a U.S. Ambassador nor the role of available quick reaction forces.
"Stand Down", my ass.
This is one screwed up Administration. Lightweights.
