With the new Ben Rhodes email the Benghazi story is coming back to life. As was obvious at the time, Obama spun the story, from a terrorist attack to a political demonstration. The consulate held out under attack for seven hours that night. Plenty of time to send reinforcements. Commanders on the scene, General Carter Ham, and Admiral Charles M Gaouette were fired by Obama that night. No explanation has ever been given. Rumor has it that Obama fired them when they refused to recall rescue missions en route to Benghazi.
I noticed that while Bret Baier was roasting Tommy Vietor medium rare last night, he didn't ask about the firings of general officers with distinguished service records.
Put this together with retired Air Force general Robert Lovell, who testified before Congress that "We should have gone in."
I think the real untold story of Benghazi is that the armed forces attempted rescue missions but Obama ordered them to stop and return to base. I think Obama sacrificed four brave Americans to prevent an incident that would have made him look bad, and demanded some serious US intervention in Libya, which he did not want to cope with.
