If this is true, that the U.S. could have captured the "real" terrorists -- assuming they exist, as the sources which appear to be quite reliable indicate -- but let them slink away while leaving behind someone who might be described as a "fall guy," it borders on the appearance of evidence of giving aid and comfort to the enemy and dereliction of duty, by the nature of the president refusing to give orders to capture the men responsible for the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Foreign Service Information Manager Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALS Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, who were on private security company assignments contracted by the CIA. The issue is far more complex than what on the surface appears to be grandstanding for the media, trying to take the focus off all the other issues of the day in order to appear to actually being doing something. The issue is of either complete ignorant incompetency on the part of the White House, or something far more sinister: The deliberate manipulation of events, creating such a complex smoke screen of scandal, irresponsibility, and political intrigue so as to hide the real intent and purpose behind the White House's maneuverings. No one can be this incompetent, ham-fisted, and oblivious. I am slowly coming to believe there is some purpose, however contrived, complex and misguided, to this constant drumbeat of scandal and stupidity.
