Compare and Contrast

Stomach churning .  The video above shows General Martin E. Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, today attempting to evade any responsibility for the lack of action that claimed the lives of the two heroic Seals during the Benghazi September 11-12 attack.

“Why didn’t you put forces in place to be ready to respond?,” Senator John McCain asked the general.

Dempsey started, “Because we never received a request to do so, number one. And number two, we –”

McCain interrupted, “You never heard of Ambassador Stevens’s repeated warnings?”

“I had, through General Ham,” responded Dempsey, referring to the commander of AFRICOM. “But we never received a request for support from the State Department, which would have allowed us to put forces–”

“So it’s the State Department’s fault?”

“I’m not blaming the State Department,” Dempsey responded.

Compare and contrast Dempsey with General Rohert H. Barrow in this post from earlier today.  The core problem in our military today is too few warriors like Barrow and too many weasels like Dempsey.

  1. A:“Help! Help! We are under attack, and running out of ammo!”
    B: “I’m sorry, can you fill out your request in triplicate and put it through the chain of command correctly? We’re not authorized to respond to verbal reports.”

  2. Raising money for re-election takes priority over matters of State, international or domestic. Clinton was asleep. Sweep it under the mat via bogus video scapegoating, and now General Dempsey does dodgeball.
    My stomach aches for the poor surviving families that see this pathetic administration at its BEST! Best, because ignorance and deceit is all they have.

    Lord have Mercy.

  3. “Ha! It is basically the Obama administration telling Americans abroad, whether or not they work for the government: In case of trouble you are on your own Jack!”
    Ahem! Unless some official–acting alone–decides to send a drone over to “get them?”

  4. GOD is really mad at the USA!

    this administration and all his little giants make my stomach turn!

    this can’t be the best the USA has to offer!

    our country looks way off course with these two pos and then the incompetent, arrogant prez and hillary off to who knows where!

    how do these pos sleep at night, knowingly letting these men die?

    their future afterlife doesn’t look to bright!
