It’s vacation time, and Bo, the Obama family dog was afforded a luxury, which was not offered to Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
Bo was airlifted 500 miles from Washington DC to Martha’s Vineyard.
Yet, last September 11th the administration claimed there wasn’t enough time to get help to the Libyan embassy that was under attack.
An anonymous special operations member begged to differ:
I know for a fact that C110 was doing a training exercise not in the region of northern Africa but in Europe and they have the ability to react and respond.
The C110 is a 40-man special operations commanders and extremists force. They are capable of rapid response and deployment and are specifically trained for Benghazi attack-like incidents. The night of the attack, according to the special op, they were training 3 & 1/2 hours away in Croatia.
We have the ability to load out, get on birds, at a minimum stage. C110 had the ability to be there, in my opinion, in 4 to 6 hours from their European theater to react. They would have been there before the second attack.
Well they didn’t make it there in time and because they didn’t arrive before the second attack, Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty were flown home in coffins on a military cargo plane.
Yet less than a year later, Bo, the president’s Portuguese water dog, went on vacation and “arrived separately on one of two MV-22 Ospreys, a hybrid aircraft which takes off like a helicopter but flies like a plane.”
Maybe next time around – if he can find Obama, who tends to go missing at crucial times – Bo can bark the following question at him:
“Ruff, ruff, Dad, if you can fly me to Martha’s Vineyard, why can’t you fly in special ops to save Americans from terrorists?”
