Follow the Benghazi timeline

What is happening with the Benghazi, the NSA and the IRS investigations? I read one article in which most military leaders agreed there was no "stand down" order given for the Benghazi event; good, but was there a "stand up and go see" order given? I don't think so.

Another article gave a timeline of events on Benghazi. The article said the attack started at 9:40 p.m. and the mortar attack that killed Tyrone Woods and Glenn Doherty was at 5:15 a.m. That is about 71/2 hours. It would appear that this would be sufficient time for F-16's to arrive and possibly scare off some attackers and at least show an American presence. I know, some would say, "What difference does it make?" Well, to me, it makes a real big difference.

Do you like this transparency?
