This, from a retired Sergeant Major. If he's not for real and such a man by this name wasn't 5th Special Forces, with that rank, I'd imagine folks in this very thread could find that out quickly enough. That's about the top of the Enlisted ranks, so, not exactly a million of them floating around out there, I'd guess.

IF they are going to impeach obama then they might as well go after him about operation fast and furious and/or violating the second amendment by trying to pass the unreasonable second "assualt weapons" ban that thank god failed.
Otherwise they LOOK LAME as hell!edit on 7/5/13 by EarthCitizen07 because: (no reason given)

They were left to die plain and simple, if the state dept cared they would have sent SF in hoping to get to them in time, because again no one knew if they would survive 2 hours or 8 hours...

This is BS...some gave an order that ended their life without even trying to rescue them...and I think its the Sec of State based on her anger during the congressional hearings as well as the WH...
We determined that Lieutenant Gibson and his team of special forces troops should go. Â The people in Benghazi had been fighting all night. Â They were tired. Â They were exhausted.Â We wanted to make sure the airport was secure for their withdrawal. Â As Colonel Gibson and his three personnel were -- were getting in the cars, he stopped. Â And he called them off and said -- told me that he had not been authorized to go. Â The vehicles had to go because the flight needed to go to Tripoli -- I mean, to Benghazi. Â Lieutenant Colonel Gibson was furious. Â I had told him to go bring our people home. That's what he wanted to do -- paid me a very nice compliment. Â I won't repeat it here
On Wednesday, Democratic Rep. Mark Pocan of Wisconsin showed little concern about the larger impact on politics. "I don't think there's a smoking gun today," he told the House panel. "I don't think there's a lukewarm slingshot."
"It may not be a smoking gun or a warm slingshot," Republican Rep. Doug Collins said in the hearing's final hour. "But we have four dead Americans,"

The above statement shows there is choosing who might live and who might die in the attempt. I know that was a tough decision for Gregory to make. It amazes me that they did so much with very little. The statement also reflects no authorization.
Why would these four guys leave the remaining embassy in Libya and ambandon the personnel there when apparently embassies in Libya were under attack???
