    What makes you think the CIA team might have saved Stevens and Smith?

    The RSOs where searching the safe room in Villa C twenty minutes after the attack started.

    Keep in mind a Feb. 17 force twice the size of the CIA was at the diplomatic mission minutes after the attack started.

    It took Feb. 17, with 40 to 60 men, another 45 minutes to gain control of the front gate.

    By that time, the RSOs had already found the body of Mr.Smith.

    Even if the CIA team had departed the Annex five minutes after the attack, took five minutes to drive there and were able to fight their way into the mission in just ten minutes, the two Americans would still have perished.

    Whether these guys you call liars lied or not is a separate issue.
    The obama admin failed to protect US interests on the anniversary of 9-11 and attempted to cover up their fatal gaffe to protect their campaign. Watergate times a thousand. Woodward and Bernstein were figuratively in on this one.

    How would Langley have been able to help the rescue team leader prepare for a rescue mission?

    The fact that they told Tig and to stand down and wait. They wanted a plan.

    I told you my brother was a Vietnam vet and according to him in some instances planning goes right out the window. You react to whats going on not sit around an plan.

    There are some things plans just won't work for. This seems to have been one of them.

    Action speaks louder than words.

    They might have had some ideas. Its the CIA after all and Benghazi isn't the first place they got their shorts caught in a wringer.

    What ideas could Langley have had, that could have helped the team leader prepare a plan and request assistance?

    You're asking the wrong person on that my friend. I'm sure this isn't the first time the CIA got their shorts caught in a wringer. They may have has some ideas to pass along.

    Your brother would be a lousy combat rescue leader, just like Tig. Tig was never more than an enlisted man. You need guys like Tig. But, he's no leader. He's a order taker, not an order giver. And, he's a backstabbing liar.
