“Hicks knew the answer for why the jets hadn't been scrambled: They couldn't have gotten there in time…”

Please explain how anyone could know in advance that a response “couldn’t have gotten there in time.” How did they know this while events were still unfolding, when two of the four dead Americans were still alive? How did they know in advance the number of follow-on attacks that would occur and over what period of time?

And, “As for the Special Operations Guys” – they were in fact FEST (Foreign Emergency Support Team) designed for incidents exactly like Benghazi. The State Department's website calls FEST "the United States Government's only interagency, on-call, short-notice team poised to respond to terrorist incidents worldwide." Why would this team not be adequate to respond to a mere “demonstration…that evolved into a direct assault” as described by the heavily edited White House/State Department/CIA talking points?

It’s no wonder the liberal blogosphere is in a yawn over Benghazi. They don’t understand Benghazi. Everyone move along. Go back to your Twitter. Go back to your Facebook. Go back to your food stamps. Four Americans are still dead. You don’t know why. Nor do you care.
