    Sort of. I got there too late to pull folks out of the water I came later in the day to take people home. I had many friends who spent hours pulling people out of the water

    I hope people on Ricochetti will keep us non-video-watchers informed about any 5-year retrospectives on Benghazi that might appear in the next few days.

    Oh, wait.  That was in 2012, so we won’t be seeing those until next year.  Never mind.

    I’ve been talking about this with folks–this story beats all the memorializing work done around the Freedom Tower. Why cannot America have better public monuments?

    I was thinking of Dunkirk as I watched it – The Snow Goose is one of my favorite movies.

    This is my new favorite.

    Thanks for posting.
