Panetta: US lacked early info on Benghazi attack

WASHINGTON (AP) The U.S. military did not quickly intervene during the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya last month because military leaders did not have adequate intelligence information and felt they should not put American forces at risk, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Thursday.

In his most extensive comments to date on the unfolding controversy surrounding the attack in Benghazi, Panetta said U.S. forces were on heightened alert because of the anniversary of 9/11 and prepared to respond. But, he said, the attack happened over a few hours and was over before the U.S. had the chance to know what was really happening.

That statement should make all of our US citizens and military abroad feel safe and protected.

What a load of creap.

They just keep digging the hole deeper and deeper, don't they?

Putting our forces at risk? What, are they afraid all the weapons we gave them for their "Arab Spring" may put our AC-130 gunships at risk?

The reason we didn't and don't get early info on anything, is because we DRONE all info carriers.

Those who actually help us, we'd release their names to the press as WH leaks (like to Dr. in Bin Laden case).
