Source coming. Foxnews.com is reporting it.


Officials tell Fox News that a Marine fast team of about 50 is being sent to Benghazi, Libya, to secure the consulate, where US Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three staff members were killed.


This is breaking so Im not sure they have a story on it yet.

Its about time we take our land back and retrieve our dead. You know the only reason Obama is doing this was after it was poll tested to do the right thing

The president must demand military assistance from Libya in helping with securing the compound and with all future secured needs. If the government fails or denies the request, we must cut off Libya from the world and starve it to death.

It's curious why we are only sending 50 marines... Sounds like suicide for a handful of them.

Poll-tested? Really? That was one quick poll, eh? This is standard practice after an incident like this. Look it up.

sheesh.

Cam you wake up on the wrong side of the bed this morning?

You do realize we've terrorized that country... some form of retaliation was unavoidable.

What treachery from those people in Libya and Egypt to do such things. They get freed from their bondage and straight away attack the people that freed them.

I have to say, I'm not very surprised at this turn of events. I suppose I had to be able to see it to believe it that people can be so completely grimy.

They will have support if needed. This is a quick response team, heavily armed and able to call for air support if needed. Their primary job is to secure the embassy. I believe that the size of the team is limited by international law so that it can't be called an invasion. With in a day or so a small task force with a Marine Expeditionary Unit will be off the coast.

Don't know they details but I'm certain they will have support. The last thing we need now is to send in a security force and have them be killed.

Maybe they hope by sending in smaller numbers it will give the savages a false sense of security and then maybe they'll attack.

There is nothing standard when it comes to obama. He had two statements apologizing for offending Islam before his morning press briefing.

Yes poll tested. Just like when the DEMs took out god in there convention platform before the huge back lash and was forced to put it back in. yes poll tested

We should ALL be relaxing on the political rhetoric and coming together against these awful acts against our nation.

Stand up for the USA, not your political party of choice.

Oh gee... 50 Marines. I would send in a few fighter bombers and take out some leadership, and then send in about 2 or 3 hundred Marines.

The God and Israel debate was ongoing which was why it even ended up in the neews to begin with.

Link me to the poll to which you refer.

They are, esentially. Please read whole threads before posting.

FAST is explained in this post.

I'm sure (knowing marines) that if anyone thinks that 50 marines against hundreds of murdering cowards is unfair, that if you ask politely, the marines will wait for more muderous cowards to show up.

(just to make it even, of course)
