#1 The Joint Special Operations Command, which Brennan controls, is a collection of special forces outside of the regular military command originally formed as a hostage-rescue team. But in the middle of last summer, say Murphy and Webb, troops operating clandestinely under JSOC began infiltrating Libya.
The painful irony here is the "hostage-rescue team" mentioned above was the element formed by the Army and commanded by the late COL Charlie Beckwith to rescue Americans held captive after the storming of the US Embassy in Tehran, Iran on 4 Nov 1979.

#2 Ronald Reagan was advised by those around him not to go into Granada to provide safety for Americans who were there. There was concern whether Americans would support such an invasion. Reagan said: Trust the people -- that is the crucial lesson of history.
Currently, the current regime has little trust of the American people. That is a huge problem. There is no honesty regarding the Benghazi debacle. There is no honesty regarding Fast and Furious.
