First of all, there was no political retribution as he kept is pay grade and rank, and is currently getting to choose a reassignment. Some one explain to me how that is retribution?

Second of all, he is the one who dropped the ball by not answering the first two calls from the ambassador, who was under attack, causing a longer delay in getting any backup there.

Thir d, in the very same hearing, it was confirmed there wasn't any air support even within striking distance.

F ourth, they sent a team to retrieve the people as soon as possible, and that is why as sad as it is, we only lost 4 people out of 18.

When a limp-wristed President sends a limp-wristed ambassador to an Arab country it's either for one of two reasons; gross incompetence (knowing Mooselimb sentiments toward being limp-wristed ) or it was to get rid of him to shut him up. Maybe one should ask around the limp-wristed clubs in Chicago whether Stevens and Obama (both being from Chicago) had an affair that needed to be covered up. Or maybe it goes deeper than that. (No pun intended)
