The Journal Sentinel is running a blatantly partisan and politicized op-ed by GOP Sen. Ron Johnson about Bengazi that alleges lies and coverup without evidence and is riddled by contradictions and muddled statements about certainties that Johnson's ghost-writer apparently tried but failed to fix.
Note the statements in opposition which I have italicized below from the op-ed, and while a Senator can speak with impunity on the Senate floor, shouldn't there be tougher fact-checking when the Senator is speaking in the state's largest newspaper?
Although no one can say with certainty, I firmly believe a relatively small contingent of armed military guards would have prevented the attack, and those four lives would not have been lost.
The outrageous act of omission during the attack was that no additional defensive or offensive military assets were immediately dispatched to help the endangered personnel in Benghazi. Although it is true that no intervention to save the lives of Ambassador Christopher Stevens or diplomat Sean Smith was possible, I do not believe the same can be said with certainty concerning U.S. personnel Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, who also were killed that night.
No one could know with certainty that the survivors would be able to get to the airport and be safely evacuated within 12 hours. What if they had encountered resistance en route to the airport?
