We have had testimony that 60 would not have been enough.


I may be wrong but I believe you are following duma down his rabbit hole where he just makes things up to support his position.

I don't recall seeing any claim that 60 would not have been enough and suspect you are confusing a number used to describe the Libyan force that responded after the compound was breached.

Comparing a Libyan rebel's(former)capabilities to respond after the compound was breached, to a well equipped American squad is likely to leave you missing the point by a factor of 10 to 1. (maybe more)

Colleague or not, I wouldn't want you to be known as employing duma tactics. :<)
