    We had a drone above the embassy as it was happening.

    All that technology doesn't do any good when people are too busy campaigning to know when to use it. And the Marines guarding Chris Stevens weren't even allowed to have bayonets, let alone guns.

    I fully imagine that Stevens and the other people in that consulate and the annex would have liked to see some troops in Libya. Perhaps the 16 man special forces unit would have been helpful, if the administration had not pulled them out a month prior to the attack.

    Why didn't Obama order the drone to go down in take care of business?

    Not all Predators are armed with missiles. Also, I think it would be difficult for the operators to know what to shoot at.

    Yeah. For Gods Sakes you wouldn't want to kill any "innocent civilians' now would you??

    That predator was probably a camera only model.

    Hope the administration is arming the Marine Guards in our other ME embassies. Hope they have orders to shoot to kill anyone trying to break in.

    What a clusterfuck from the Barry State Department. Hilary should be shot.
