While the situation on the ground in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012 was unclear in the heat of the moment, the timeline of who knew what when in Washington D.C. is beginning to grow clearer. We now know that the streaming video of the attack from drones overhead and a number of emails from the Embassy in Tripoli painted a clear portrait of a consulate under duress. We also know there was now at least an indication of the involvement of organized terror groups. Despite the abundence of information pouring in during the early hours, Leon Panetta and the Pentagon maintained that there was too little information available to deploy troops to Banghazi. Why, two days later and with all of the evidence to the contrary, did we have a Secretary of State essentially saying we're going to arrest and prosecute a person who made a YouTube video?
The 'Real News' panel Friday discussed the latest news surrounding the Benghazi attack, including the Panetta statement and the father of one of the Navy SEALs killed in the attack on the consulate telling Glenn Beck that President Barack Obama wouldn't even look him in the eye and Vice President Joe Biden was disrespectful during the ceremony when his son's body was returned to America.
