The CIA is denying. The Pentagon is denying. And now the White House is denying that anyone refused to send help to our embattled CIA and State Department personnel engaged in a seven hour running firefight with more than 150 jihadists.
There is a ray of sunshine in this gloomy cloud of suck.
A company-sized team, with heavy weapons, surprise, initiative, and tons of time for proper planning (which prevents piss-poor performance) took seven hours to kill a handful of Americans, armed with, at best, small arms.
These are grown men, toting guns around their entire lives. This is the best they could do? That is embarrassing.
Any PFC out of SOI, who never saw a rifle before he hit MCRD, given 150 men, 12.5 machine guns, mortars, RPGs and 'artillery mounted on gun trucks' (whatever the f*ck that actually means) could flatten the place in an hour and home for a late dinner.
"Are these the Nazis, Walter?"
"No, Donny, these men are jihadists, there's nothing to be afraid of."
These are not people to be afraid of.
