How sad a day will it be in America if we find out the Commander-in-Chief wouldn't rescue Americans under attack? Not that he couldn't. HE WOULDN'T! Especially since he just said about Sandy: "We leave no one behind." And help was just an hour or so away. This battle went on for 9 hours. Plenty of time to get help to save somebody!
Help was within reach. This didn't have to happen.
