Benghazi: Benghazi Timeline
|David Ignatius at WaPo reviews the timeline given to him by the CIA. |
A companion article provides a longer time frame with both the events of the attack and the politics afterwards.
Ignatius says in his piece --
While there were multiple errors that led to the final tragedy, there's no evidence that the White House or CIA leadership deliberately delayed or impeded rescue efforts.
I don't know how he can say that when we don't have all the facts yet. It's clear that the CIA Global Response Staff moved smartly towards the sound of gunfire. That's all anyone can ask of them. But we don't know from this what the White House, State Department, or Langley did, what Africom did, and what our military in Europe had available.
