#1 What then is the optimal number of speed bumps Americans killed?
Is that number smaller than four, or greater?
The leadership of the terrorists senseless attackers would actually share Obama's opinion as they would have liked to kill more Americans.

#2 BLUF: POTUS dithered and chose not to convene his security council, but rather go to Vegas.
What has recently come out is that the attack lasted over a period of hours, and was observed by the US State Department via Closed Circuit Televison Cameras (CCTV) mounted at the consulate. The length of the attack would have permitted State Department intellligence personnel to clearly identify tactics, personnel, and precisely what was taking place. This would have been relayed to the White House Situation Room via FLASH message or piped via LIVE feeds. The US Army White House Communications Detachment would be aware of what took place and have detailed logs.
The news reported last evening that the adminisitration allegedly refused to send in an extremis force rescue party to either attempt to save the consulte staffers or secure the facility. This decision would have been made by the POTUS. The reluctance to send anyone in, would appear to be supported by the delay in getting an FBI investigation team to Benghazi and the creation of this video fictional cause.

#3 Maybe he simply doesn't know that optimal is not a synonym of good?

#4 Can we please get rid of this horses ass, known as Obama ? "Here's what I'll say". Your statements are insane, and heartless. You are an emotional and intellectual cripple. You contiunue to embarrass yourself and insult the rest of America.

#5 OK. He's either lazy, reckless, irresponsible and incompetent or he's doing it on purpose.

#6 Obama's core support does tend to embarrass themselves and insult the rest of the American electorate. We're getting what they want.
