We need to understand why we weren’t prepared and what the military is doing to change so we can ensure this never happens again.
The military was not postured to respond, even when we had every reason to believe that Americans in North Africa were under threat.
The takeaway is this: We were not ready for a strike targeting Americans overseas on the anniversary of Sept. 11. That’s unacceptable.
Based on our discussions it seems the military did explore options available to direct forces to Benghazi in time to make a difference.
