I still don't see what is being covered up. Was there advanced warning of this particular attack? To me it looks like the usual FUBAR fog of war.

If you are thinking close air support would have helped, that can't be arranged from a distance. You need a FAC or someone on the ground who know what they are doing. Even then you need a 100 yards of separation.
Apache's could have done it but they don't travel fast or far.
Finally, if any help were to have been rendered, it certainly would not have required the president's ok. Do you think that he ok's every operational decision?

It appears to me you all are trying to whip this into a swift boat froth.
That is a despicable and cynical exploitation of this tragedy.
