Because they don't send forces into hostile areas without knowing exactly what's going to be faced. Now if that makes sense then the spec ops people should never go anywhere.

The Germans used to send folks like that off to the eastern front back in the day. I wonder if Barrack and co send em off to Afghan? Or maybe they will be the new ambassadors appointed in Syria when Assad is killed by these ass clowns sitting in DC??

Yesterday proved again that Democrats have nothing to be afraid of. So your attribution of motive is apparently and rather starkly in error.

KUHNER: Blowing a whistle on Benghazi - Washington Times
I remember when Bill Clinton was elected. The Right couldn't stand him and they immediately came up with an Arkansas scandal about his involvement in a real estate deal called Whitewater. For eight straight years the Republicans tried to remove him from office. After investigations by every goverment agency known to man they settled for a blow job. The day the Republican house impeached him nearly every Democrat walked out. Man Alive they had the senate on a fast track to remove Clinton from office till billionaire publisher Larry Flynt dug up abortions, daliences, etc. on the Republicans and the newly elected speaker of the house Bob Livingston had to resign and Henry Hyde didn't run again after their affairs were reported. Turned out that rep Bob Barr had paid for an abortion for his first wife after standing on his soap box screaming pro-life for his whole career. The best part is that Flynt told them all that he had other things he would release if they removed Clinton from office. Guess What Sport's Fans?? The senate did not remove him from office and during his final year his approval rating rose to the mid 60's.

Bottom line is that Republicans are sore losers and since they've lost the popular vote in five of the last six presidential elections they're boiling over. Benghazi is a tempest in a tea pot and the people who were killed were drawing big salaries plus hazardous duty pay for every month they served. They went to one of the most dangerous places in the world volunteerily and were smart enough to know why the pay was that good. Like other Americans I feel sorry for those who died and their friends and families but how quick we forget. George Bush farted around getting some tax cuts for the wealthy passed and 9/11 was no Benghazi....that's the bastard who should have been impeached. The WTC had already been hit once in 1993 and Bin Laden had been quoted as saying he was wanting to use passenger jets as weapons and the hijackers were in America receiving training on...get this, taking off and flying but did not take the training on how to land. The FBI and CIA had both been alerted of these facts but Bush got his tax cuts.

Wow... you appear to know even less about special ops than you do the military in general.

You continue to get your information from sources that fit your narrative, and I will continue to look at everything and formulate my own opinions.

Cnn covered it for about 20 seconds then followed with a story about nuke officers being demoted due to bad reviews. That story got over a minute, oh and a longer story than those two on sheep fences so planes dont land on them. That was a top story.

Democrats fighting this makes it look like they have something to hide.
Then you will be glad to learn that was done.
