Obama on Benghazi the hurricane: “We leave nobody behind”

posted at 10:07 pm on October 30, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via Breitbart. If President Romney had said something this oblivious with the cloud of Benghazi over his head, it’d be the lead story in political media for the next 24 hours. As it is, it’s “president comments on storm” soundbite filler for the evening news. Democratic membership has its advantages.

It’s catching up to him, though:

The president has a slight edge on terrorism and foreign policy, but the poll found that Mr. Romney may have made some inroads with his strong critique of how Mr. Obama managed the Libya crisis after the killing of the American ambassador and three others in Benghazi. When asked specifically about the administration’s handling of the attacks on the consulate in Libya, the poll found that only 38 percent of voters approved and 51 percent disapproved.

David Ignatius has a few questions in the leave-no-man-behind vein:

Second, why didn’t the United States send armed drones or other air assistance to Benghazi immediately? This one is harder to answer. The CIA did dispatch a quick-reaction force that night from Tripoli, with about eight people, but it had trouble at first reaching the compound. One of its members, Glen Doherty, died along with Woods when a mortar hit the roof of the annex about 4 a.m.

What more could have been done? A Joint Special Operations Command team was moved that night to Sigonella air base in Sicily, for quick deployment to Benghazi or any of the other U.S. facilities in danger that night across North Africa. Armed drones could also have been sent. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta summarized last Thursday the administration’s decision to opt for caution: “You don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on.”

Looking back, it may indeed have been wise not to bomb targets in Libya that night. Given the uproar in the Arab world, this might have been the equivalent of pouring gasoline on a burning fire. But the anguish of Woods’s father is understandable: His son’s life might have been saved by a more aggressive response. The Obama administration needs to level with the country about why it made its decisions.

Indeed, but if you focus too much on what they didn’t do that night, you risk forgetting what they didn’t do before then. They effectively left Chris Stevens behind the moment they denied him any real consulate security and stuck him with a skeleton crew of Libyan contractors. How is it, per Panetta, that we can’t send armed troops into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on but we could send an unarmed diplomat and his staff?

And Ignatius is apparently quite right that the drones they sent to the consulate during the attack weren’t armed. Fox News reported that earlier today. After you watch O here, I recommend reading this NYT piece about the next intervention looming for the U.S., a clean-up effort in Mali against jihadists who managed to establish a base there with the help of heavy weapons they looted from … Qaddafi’s arsenal in liberated Libya. Maybe we should start gaming out which African country will be destabilized by intervening in Mali next. Exit quotation: “I think Charles is a little too hard on Obama. Frankly, it’s huge progress that he didn’t blame this hurricane on a video.”

There are reports that Woods and Doherty were painting the mortar crew with a laser target designator. They would not do so unless the designator was already synched to an on-station weapons system. That means an armed drone or a gunship.

At first I thought it was just poor choice of words, but after watching the whole thing, I have to wonder. It seems like a deliberate attempt to repackage and ‘re-context’ (if you will) the patently false ‘we did everything we could to help’ Benghazi narrative.

As in, ‘if we keep repeating this statement in reference to events where it is slightly more believable, maybe people will believe it holds true across the board’

VorDaj on October 30, 2012 at 10:25 PM

So Obama is going to stop hurricanes now? Are we that stupid as citizens that we think that he can do anything to stop hurricanes from causing deaths?

I saw many photos of cars flooded and parked in UNDERGROUND parking lots…

it’s not like they didn’t have massive media hysterics and hyped warnings… how about we hop on the ol bus/train/plane/car/hovercraft/preferred levitation device and get on west inland to a safe location instead of staying in the path of the hurricane….

sorry, for the sound of mind & body, I have zero compassion when they do not remove themselves from harm’s way to the best of their ability (specific situations such as the guy who was in an apartment and a tree crushed him) are clearly outside of this general comment).

I don’t need some president to tell me that we are tough – like he would know… or that we will rise like a phoenix from the proverbial ashes. Leave them alone – let the red cross care for them and insurance companies pay out as agreed to – stay out of it… it ain’t your job to solve everyone’s problems…

AP, Ed, I lnow the excuse for autoplay ads is that you have a sole sourcer and they control the content. This is, IMO, a crappy excuse. When purely mobile users, such as myself, can’t access threads due to auto ads then let me tell ya, you might be winning the ad battle but you will lose the war in the form of reduced traffic. Think long term, please.

cynccook on October 30, 2012 at 10:13 PM

Has been discussed for several days, at least, on many of the military blogs. Presumably, the Seal (I believe it is thought to have been Doherty) would not expose himself to fire and further identify his own position by doing this from the roof of the building, unless he knew that there was an aerial asset (armed drone or AC-130 gunship) capable of using the targeting designation. It wouldn’t be done “on spec”, just hoping that some help might wander past.

GLDs (Guided/Ground Laser Designators) can only deploy when they are synced up with a weaponized aircraft or system and the GLD operator would’ve had to sync it up first, before triggering it. It’s what proves there was help in the zone and somebody refused it.

The ads have gotten so bad that I have started hitting the mute button on my computer as soon as I come here. Of course, that means I won’t be able to listen to any videos I might want to hear, but could I really listen to them with an ad playing at the same time?

There is a school of thought in the world of advertising that says annoying ads are perfectly acceptable if they get you noticed. I refuse to reward such obnoxious behavior. Anybody who annoys me with their ads gets no business from me. Good, tasteful ads may take more thought to produce, but they’re the only ones that will get me to spend my money.

I saw you talking about this before. If the former SEALS at the CIA Annex wanted to go help the Consulate and they were told not to go, that has nothing to do with whether there were drones or anything else available at the time. It is not just the equipment, people who volunteered to go help were told not to go. Why?

“We’re taking fire, request gunship support….over”

“copy gunship request, request denied“….

“I say again, we are taking heavy fire, multiple tangoes, request immediate gunship support and alert the QRF”

“copy heavy fire at your location, multiple tangoes, and request for gunship and QRF support…. request is denied….”

“Our location is overrun, the gate is breached, the ambassador is under fire, I say again, the ambassador is under fire, request immediate gunship support and MEDEVAC”

“copy your location is overrun and gate is breached. Copy that ambassador is under fire and request for MEDEVAC support…..request is denied. outcopy”

And if that isn’t the actual transcript, it’s close enough that the difference doesn’t matter.
