Of Syrian Revolutionaries And A Situation Room

Early Tuesday, Breitbart.com posted a brief article with a video of Pres. Obama’s interview with Charlie Rose of PBS, with the headline, “Obama: Syria Rebels ‘Carpenters, Blacksmiths, and Dentists'”.
Is he maybe trying to compare the Syrian rebels to the American Revolutionaries? As much as one might balk at such a suggestion, it would, in my opinion, not be that far from the truth, since it always seems to be the “little” people rise up against the perceived tyranny of their rulers, no matter what their own political ideologies might be.
In the video, Pres. Obama talks of being “…in the Situation Room, pawing through intelligence and meeting directly with our military folks and asking “What are all our options?’ And examining what are all the consequences…”.
From that statement I believe that one can reasonably assume that Pres. Obama was in the Situation Room during the Benghazi attack and that while he and his counselors decided that the action(s) they took, (or maybe that should be didn’t take), were the right one(s), but realizing how the truth of the situation would damage, if not destroy, the current administration, they concocted the “its the fault of this video” excuse.
I don’t have a firm idea of what was going on, but there’s a number of shady details that seem to point to the fact that some kind of deal, whether a fake kidnap followed by a prisoner exchange or some kind of arms dealings, (maybe both?!), were going on and maybe even going to plan, until the call for help was put out and acted upon by the brave souls who positioned themselves to protect the Ambassador, whilst simultaneously taking out about half of the insurgent forces. That is when the plan started to collapse and the situation ended in the tragic debacle we were left with.
