"The minute I found out what was happening . . . I gave the directive," he said, "to make sure we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to do. I guarantee you everybody in the CIA and military knew the number-one priority was making sure our people are safe."

#5 Obviously the fault lies with the phone system and the millionaires who run it profiting while our troops are in need of fresh information and morale boost from their government during tough times.
