We won at Benghazi. Here is how.
But first just let me say that I have been too blinded by rage by the fact that Obama failed to send in the cavalry to rescue our Ambassador and peeps to see the real lesson of Benghazi.
The real lesson is that the warrior in the “American cowboy” has not been stamped out yet by post-modernism and that was on display for 13 hours while a handful of randomly selected contractors* put a hurt on a vastly superior force with complete homefield advantage.
Our boys, left for dead by Barack and Hillary, fought their way out and back home. The world cannot stand up against our best of the best and they were shown that fact again on September 11, 2012.
R.I.P. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods. You have fought the good fight.
*I prefer (for now) “Blackwater types” over “contractors.” Contractors makes it sound a bit too purely mercenary.
To the best of my knowledge, Blackwater never lost a single individual that it was assigned to protect. A 100 percent success rate is hard to argue with. On the other hand, a lot of Blackwater operators (as compared to other “high risk” agencies (such as CIA and DEA) were killed and maimed while under contract to your U.S. State Department.
State only hired the cream of the cream to protect their peeps when they went into rough neighborhoods.
