Benghazi is still not behind the Obama Administration, as anonymous sources are now coming out of the woodwork to talk about conflicting reports of how the attacks went down.
One report, passed along by an anonymous source to Fox News, contradicts the White House’s explanation that there were no ground forces capable of deployment in the region during the attacks. The source says that there was a special ops team training in Croatia at the time and that it could have been in Benghazi before the second wave of strikes.
The source claims that, specifically, a C 110 team could have been sent to the region. That team is a 40-man special ops force that trains for rapid response cases such as Benghazi, according to the Fox News report.
“They would have been there before the second attack,” the anonymous special operator said. “They would have been there at a minimum to provide a quick reaction force that could facilitate their exfil out of the problem situation.”
That being said, the source also admits that it was an unpredictable situation. If the team was sent there, it could have put more people in danger and strain the already intense situation.
The source does maintain, however, that a medical evacuation team could have at least been sent to rescue the injured.
