#1 I don't know what bothers me more about this mess - that it happened, which is bad enough in itself, or the cringingly pitiful attempts by this admin to lie, spin and deflect responsibility. Can't anybody here play this game?

#2 I like the part about having a drone on-hand for the final hour. Live feed, whether there was a protest or not, or does that video get placed next to the one where Team Rebels pulled Daffy out of his car and executed him.

#3 there was a drone overhead during that fight - and all we could do was watch our own guys die??? there was no way of hitting back ... with a live feed from a drone coming in?

furthermore, wouldn't the info from that drone have been relayed back to the USA immediately? somebody must have known within hours of that attack that it was a major assault and coordinated. there appears to be a traffic jam somewhere on our information superhighway.

#4 ..given how these perps work, they were probably trying to get a State/CIA/DoD/WH lawyer to clear the RoE. Don't want to take any initiative in the Mother-May-I bureaucracy. Just scroll down to see what happens to whistleblowers.
