The Invincible Pt. 3
So once again somebody in an 8x10 office somewhere in Washington DC let it be known that we had a Predator drone cutting real time feed through the fog of war.
At the start of the attack, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Martin Dempsey and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta "looked at available options, and the ones we exercised had our military forces arrive in less than 24 hours, well ahead of timelines laid out in established policies." I do not believe they were watching YouTube.
The timing of the release of this information is absolutely masterful. It came just a little bit too late for the Sunday news show talking heads to adjust their talking points. Now here we are day two in the three day news cycle. Time for the President to react. Funny, he has a debate with Mr. Romney schedule to do just that.
As I see it, if we had a Predator watching as our brothers, fathers, mothers and sisters were being murdered, an A-10 would have nipped this whole problem in the bud.
But think about this. You are in a consulate under attack by savages that believe in beheading and rape is the right way to treat an enemy. You know the good guys have a Predator in the air watching over you, so they are pretty close by.
Help never comes.
