Itâ€™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 Marthaâ€™s Vineyard.
Yet, last September 11thÂ the administration claimed there wasnâ€™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 didnâ€™t make it there in time and because they didnâ€™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 â€œarrived separately on one of two MV-22 Ospreys, a hybrid aircraft which takes off like a helicopter but flies like a plane.â€
Maybe next time around â€“ if he can find Obama, who tends to go missing at crucial times â€“ Bo can bark the following question at him:
â€œRuff, ruff, Dad, if you can fly me to Marthaâ€™s Vineyard, why canâ€™t you fly in special ops to save Americans from terrorists?â€
