    Three days after the bloody 9/11 siege on our consulate in Benghazi, the Taliban waged an intricately coordinated, brutal attack on Camp Bastion in Afghanistan. The murderous jihadists released video exactly one month ago this week showing off their training exercises in preparation for the assault. Where are the questions?

    Where’s the accountability? Where’s the Obama administration? Where’s the press? Where’s the outrage?

    Two heroic U.S. Marines were killed in the battle. Their names — Lt. Col. Christopher Raible and Sgt. Bradley Atwell – have not been uttered publicly by the commander in chief. Their arrival back in the U.S., in flag-draped coffins, was not broadcast on network TV. But their brothers-in-arms did not and will not forget. And neither must we.

    On September 20, John Gresham of the Defense Media Network wrote a scathing detailed breakdown of this little-noticed terrorist attack on our troops. He called it “arguably the worst day in USMC aviation history since the Tet Offensive of 1968.” Eight irreplaceable aircraft were destroyed or put out of action by Taliban warriors dressed in U.S. combat fatigues — amounting to “approximately 7 percent of the total flying USMC Harrier fleet,” Gresham reported.

    One screw up only bring on another and they succeed in shadowing each succeeding one!

    Like they believe, The Taliban and Al Quida are just a fraction of what they used to be, Obo killed Bin Ladin don't ya know!

    And besides, there are to many Green jobs to throw money away on and to many former supporters to pay off!!

    Read the very well written account in the Marine Times (on line) for accuracy. Michelle Malkin is far from an expert in anything except maybe acting like a Right Wing Lunatic. This attack goes right along with the so called "friendlies" in training turning on our GI's. It's more of a reason to get the hell out of Afghanistan quickly.
