Former Top Defense Official: If Your Ambassador Has Been Killed or Captured You Don’t Ask “Mother May I” before You Cross the Border (Video)

US Officials said they NEEDED PERMISSION From Libyan Government for Overflights During the 9-11 Attacks–
Former Assistant Defense Secretary Bing West told America Live:

“For the United States military to say that they were 480 miles away and they couldn’t do anything, and they couldn’t move one aircraft in 8 hours? I’d say it’s time to relieve a lot of people in the chain of command… If your ambassador has been either killed or captured, and is missing at the hands of terrorists, you do not ask any country for “Mother may I?” before you come across the border to save your own.'”

The US had troops in Sigonella, Italy – about an hour away.
The attack went on for at least four hours.

    I just heard some Obama admin goof on the radio news trying – very nervously, I might add – to explain the administration’s way out of this disaster. There were too many reports, and too many agencies, and too many things happening at once, and blah blah blah. In other words, we can respond to terrorist attacks that happen slowly and when we’re warned ahead of time. But nowhere do we have the resources to act quickly when surprise attacked. Oh, by the way, there was ample warning that this attack was coming – namely the ambassador himself and the fact that it was um, 9-11.
    Not only does Obama have to be defeated, the bureaucracy has to be cleaned out as well.

    Lawmakers ripped over 9/11 mosque fundraiser

    [“While brave young Virginia men and women are risking their lives to fight terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan, Connolly, Moran and Kaine are yucking it up with them and slapping each other on the back over at the Marriott,” charged VAST Chairman James Lafferty.

    He noted that the three politicians’ campaign war chests are
    heavily funded by radical Islamists who support the mosque.

    “Look at their Federal Election Commission reports,” Lafferty said. “These spineless politicians are owned and operated by the radical Islamists and their sinister front groups.”]

    Aren’t you glad we have almost doubled the size of the government workforce under Obama and that they average 34% more pay for the same job as in the private sector…plus virtually unlimited FREE benefits for life?

  • Chris Light

    Here’s a hypothetical question to ponder: IF the Obama Admin can’t determine what is happening during a 4 hour long attack on an embassy, how would they react if a nuclear strike, which only takes 30 mins to arrive was headed towards to the US, or some other “rapidly evolving fluid” situation.

    Dear President Obama…

    Remember when you told Mitt Romney in the debate that times have changed, we do not use bayonets and horses no more, that we have aircraft carriers, and planes that land on them, we have ships and nuclear submarines……When an American Ambassador and three other Americans were raped and killed in Benghazi by Terrorists during a TERRORIST ATTACK on 9/11….I am quite sure that Mitt Romney would have used them planes, carriers, and ships….As for you it’s been Vega’s Letterman, Jay-Z, and Golf.

    Mr President…F- You and the horse you rode in on…….

    [The film, SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden, grants President Barack Obama a “starring role,” and was edited–apparently at Weinstein’s suggestion–to embellish Obama’s involvement: “the film has been recut, using news and documentary footage to strengthen Mr. Obama’s role and provide a window into decision-making in the White House.” The director claims, in his defense, that the edits reduce Obama’s on-screen time..]

    If we had a UAV overhead taking video of the embassy.

    We has sufficient permission to act…unless we were looking for an excuse not too.

    Excuses, excuses.

    Once this administration is out of power, investigations need to be started, and if anything untoward is uncovered, prosecution and imprisonment should be the end result. If the head guy is determined to have been guilty of malfeasance, put him into the graybar hotel as well.

  • mcashc

    Can we put forward a constitutional amendment to have REAL qualifications to be president of the United States? To become president should be hard. 99.5 % of the population should have no chance. I cannot believe this punk child is president. This racist anti-American criminal, and now treasonist, has no skills and has never done a thing to qualify for the presidency. His aircraft carrier-submarine comment in the last debate was a complete embarrassment for our great country. What a cocky punk pussy. He proves anybody can become president. This has to change. You vote for this criminal and you have blood on your hands. He is the enemy.

  • Ragspierre

    We didn’t ask Mexico before we injected thousands of firearms into their nation.

    We didn’t even inform them.

    We didn’t ask Pakistan before ObaRambo personally went in to get Osama.

    We didn’t even inform them.

    Our embassies are -by law- US soil-

  • mcashc

    Think of how many of your coworkers, and neighbors, and family members that have no clue what is going on with this administration. Our enemy is within. Look around, no one has a clue. IT IS CHILLING. OUR NUMBER ONE ENEMY IS OUR PRESIDENT. Heard the punk in Iowa today, cocky as ever. Hey white Iowa- HE HATES YOU AND AMERICA- YOU IDIOT FOOLS.

  • Bart DePalma

    The conduct of the Obama administration concerning this matter was awful from beginning to end, but we need to make sure that we are on solid ground when making accusations.

    I very much doubt that the Obama administration could have deployed troops from Italy in time to save the Ambassador and his staff.

    Even if we had a ready reaction force in Italy packed and ready to fly, the commander needs time to plan how to get the troops to the location, the layout of the facility, local friendly forces, local enemy forces and some semblance of an attack plan before executing the operation.

    This is not a Rambo movie or an episode of The Unit.

  • Patty

    Finally, a real voice. A president’s first job is to protect the people he served. Obama should vacant the seat of the Presidency, oh, he has.

    Thanks, Clint for reminding us.!!

  • Granny

    You know, I can’t recall the Israelis asking for permission before the raid on Entebbe LOL.

  • Oliver

    #16 Bart – you make some good points, but there’s no denying a couple of facts that say a lot about Obama’s character (or lack thereof):
    – he lied
    – he went to bed in the midst of a security crisis
    – he flew off to a fundraiser in Vegas a few hours after learning the Ambassador & 3 others had died

    That’s all I need to know about this jerk.

  • Patty

    This is what happens when lawyers takeover the White House. Scared to offend others.

    I ask, do you believe that Ambassador Stevens, two Seal and other security guard would have worried one tiny bit about our attacking and trying to help them.

    Steven’s only security was a closet. THANK OBAMA NOW YOU CAN TAKE A BOW AND LEAVE.
