No fault on these Marines who were following the orders of incompetent idiots who were more concerned about appearances than saving the lives of Americans under attack.
New details in a report released Tuesday by the House select committee investigating the deadly Benghazi attack showed that senior State Department officials debated whether responding with U.S. Marines in uniform would appear to be an invasion.
Marines ordered to rescue Americans under siege at a diplomatic compound were told to change in and out of uniform four times as officials debated.
“We were told multiple times to change what we were wearing, to change from cammies into civilian attire, civilian attire into cammies, cammies into civilian attire,” the commander of a Marine Fleet Anti-Terrorist Security Team (FAST) platoon testified to the committee, referring to camouflage fatigues.
“There was also some talk of whether or not we could carry our personal weapons,” he added.
