Gen. Robert Lovell Testifies, “We Should have Tried” to Save the Americans under Attack in Benghazi; No Order came to “Move to the Sound of the Guns” – Video 5/1/14
Powerful testimony today on Capitol Hill be retired U.S. Gen. Robert Lovell, who tells Congresss, “We should have tried” to save the Americans under “hostile attack” at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. Lovell said at the time, no one knew how long the attack would last, and no order came to use American Forces to “move to the sound of the guns.” Instead, we did nothing.
Lovell made it clear that there was no thought that what was happening in Benghazi was the result of a demonstration, as the Obama White House claimed. They knew it was a “hostile action,” and that it was likely a “terrorist attack.”
