#1 Caller Doug provided excellent backgound data on standard NEO (Non-Combatant Evacuation) Tactics Techniques and Procedures (TTP). Necessary intelligence and firepower was available.

Pure speculation, but it appears POTUS pulled the plug on enemy engagement once the bulk of the mission had been evacuated on the OGA bird. If a Laser Target Designator was used, it was probably borrowed from SOF in Tripoli and brought to Benghazi by folks on the OGA extraction bird from Tripoli. Not an item that would be found lying around a remote mission.

More speculation: Woods and Doherty may have been instructed to "stand-by to paint Specter or Pred targets on order" then E&E (Escape and Evade) via leather Cadillacs to a third site. In any event, the NO FIRE order was given and the clock ran out on Woods and Doherty.

The order to engage ground targets would have been given by POTUS.

#2 Right Scoop has the video available. Looks like Rush released it. You can watch Rush here. His body expressions are interesting to watch as he gets into the subject.

#3 O was proud of taking credit for Binny--and it was said he personally approved of the drone zap list at the time. Narcissistic control freaks are consistent....

#4 Narcissistic control freaks are consistent....

Yes - but the common denominator is that anything goes, so long as they can't be blamed if anything goes wrong, and get all the credit and the glory when things go right. Few leadership decisions are that clear-cut, which is why Champ is such an indecisive, ineffectual twit. It's also why he surrounds himself with advisors whose jobs boil down to blame/credit risk assessment, masquerading as responsible, adult advice.

Consistent, yes - and as pathological and destructive as it gets.

#5 Valerie Jarret is the go/no-go decision-maker for the Obumble Administration. She's Barrack's handler, strictly speaking. Why else would she demand (and get) Secret Service protection? When this farce breaks down, there's going to have to be a million sanitation people employed in DC just to get rid of the stench.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
