    Liberals here with no military experience will tell us F-16s in Italy couldn't fly to Libya.

    Nevermind our spec ops units in the Horn of Africa and in Europe.

    This wasn't Christmas Eve where units were in relaxation mode, it was 9-11 where everyone was on high alert. I gurantee there were spec ops units in Europe ready for this scenario.

    So what was the motive not to act?

    What do you mean silence? Was the non response because of some motive we can't know or incompetence or maybe the situation wasn't really known? If the latter then the CIA kill list really makes me wonder.

    Obamination doesn't use the military unless the SecDef can't gurantee success in the mission. The UBL raid was planned, planned and planned some more. Obamination can't handle letting the military react to a situation without practicing it for weeks.

    Also, he didn't want to have an airplane crash with pilots KIA/POWs or spec ops guys on the ground killed or taken by the terrorists. It doesn't look good for an election if troops die in Libya after he personally declared that country a success and safe.

    He played the "do nothing" strategy hoping it would go away and it blew up in his face. He is not a leader in the first place, so he probably pissed his pants once faced with this decision. He probably ran back to his room crying and went to bed. I could only imagine how he would've handled the real 9-11 attacks....
