    Here is a transript of Hicks testimony.
    http://www.thetowntalk.com/article/2...Hicks-Benghazi

    He only talks about flying a "response team" into Bengazi.

    One of the CIA operatives said they couldn't fly into Bengazi fearing a trap since several hundred surface to air missles "Stingers" were missing since the fall of Gadaffi.

    Page 4 of Hick's testimony.

    The Tripoli response team departs at about midnight and arrives at about 1:15 in Benghazi. If I may step back again to Tripoli and what's going on there at this point. At about 10:45 or 11:00 we confer, and I asked the defense attache who had been talking about AFRICOM and with the joint staff, ''Is anything coming? Will they be sending us any help? Is there something out there?`` And he answered that, the nearest help was in Aviano, the nearest -- where there were fighter planes. He said that it would take two to three hours for them to get onsite, but that there also were no tankers available for them to refuel. And I said, ''Thank you very much,`` and we went on with our work.
    Phase III begins with news that the ambassador - the ambassador's body has been recovered, and David McFarland, if I recall correctly, is the individual who began to receive that news from his contacts in Benghazi. We began to hear also that the ambassador has been taken to a hospital. We don't know initially which hospital it is, but we -- through David's reports we learned that it is in a hospital which is controlled by Ansar Sharia, the group that Twitter feeds had identified as leading the attack on the consulate.

    Lt Gibson's orders were to secure the airport in Bengazi for the evacuation.

    Hicks indicates that a plane was found with a pilot who was willing to make the flight.

    Yup, Stingers missing and a whole lot of other stuff. Oops! The policy wonks forgot about that in the haste to get rid of Gadaffi.

    Obama is still trying to "sell" the fact that he used the generic phrase "acts of terror" in his Rose Garden speech. In view of the ensuing narrative about the video, even the MSM is not buying that now. Then he mentioned a testimony on 9/19 describing the Benghazi attack as an act of terrorism. The person who gave that testimony did so when asked by a Congressional inquiry; and that person contends he was disciplined for having done so. On 9/20 the administration then began to back off from the video narrative. They didn't have much choice.

    However, wasn't the UN speech after that, when the video story was again brought up? Although I don't believe that at the UN it was blamed for Benghazi in so many words.

    Ok,quick now...whoops, nobody here but the usual whine fest. How fast can you respond. Please name the four people who died in Bengahzi that night. You just have a minute or so. Your resposes to my questions are time stamped by RTF. You will be judged and held accountable by the quicknest of your response. Sleeping, eating, doing other things are not
    important.

    Look at the time stamp on my post. I'll give you 120 seconds. Then you fail.

    I have to say this was the weakest post I have read in a longggggg time not counting the one you posted after it. We are not sitting here waiting to be drilled by you, but the people in high positions should be connected at all times and ready to answer when called. Even my husband who is a low level management guy has a phone issued to him and he is on call 24/7. If one does not want to be on call then do not take a position that requires that amount to dedication.
