Incompetence! Total incompetence from the administration of Barack Hussein.
That is the gist of Trey Gowdy’s 800-page report on the tragedy we know as the Benghazi massacre.
While Hussein and his staff were trying to decide whether Marines who were spun up and ready to deploy should wear military uniforms or civvies, people were dying in Benghazi.
Do you think Cubans are fighting for healthcare or freedom from Communism?
According to Military.com, “The Marine commander of the FAST platoon, unnamed in the report, testified that the Marines’ orders changed constantly as they waited to depart.
‘We were told multiple times to change what we were wearing, to change from cammies into civilian attire, civilian attire into cammies, cammies into civilian attire,’ he said. ‘There was also some talk of whether or not we could carry our personal weapons. I was basically holding hard and fast to the point where we were carrying our personal weapons. Like, we’ve got a very violent thing going on the ground where we’re going, so we’re going to be carrying something that can protect ourselves.’
Ultimately, the commander said, the Marines would change in and out of uniform four times.”
And, of course, there was all the precious time wasted by Barack Hussein and his “gang” while they concentrated on blaming the video as the cause of the attack.
Beyond stupid! Shades of LBJ micromanaging military ground operations on the other side of the planet in Vietnam.
Gowdy deserves much praise for not blasting his Democrat colleagues on the committee for their partisan obstruction every step of the way throughout the committee’s investigation.
America suffers from a horrible affliction we call the Democrat Party.
