    So what is the timeline.

    At 4:05pm ET - email states attack is underway and ambassador is in the compound safe haven.
    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/interactive/2012/10/24/internal-emails-on-libya-terror-attack/

    At 4:54pm ET - email cites a Libyan response team is trying to secure the area.

    At 6:07pm ET - email cites terrorists have claimed responsibility.

    Somewhere around 2 hrs after the attack started, an unmanned drone is over the compound observing the events.

    2 Former Seals are killed 7 hrs into the attack. I've heard this twice on the radio. I'll post a link when I can find one.

    Fox reports that forces were within 90 minutes of the compound.

    I don't think we ever got an answer as to why extra security was denied.

    If BHO wins, would an impeachment be viable? Would "president" Biden be a viable option?

    Ain't going to happen. If he wins, business as usual. If he loses, the truth will come out over the span of years.

    The White House and State knew mortars (from all reports, pre-sighted) were being fired on the CIA safe house (the mortars that killed the two ex-SEALs) real time while it was happening, nearly seven hours into the attack.

    Both Obama and Hillary then put spokespersons up to say it was a spontaneous demostration over the anti-muslim video.

    Anybody here (with any life experience) think people showed up to a spontaneous demonstration with pre-sighted mortars for a safe house?

    Need to include DoD in there, too. Who refused to send AC-130s from Italy? What happened to the alert troops at Vicenza?
