Fox News: Drones Above Benghazi Were Unarmed


Fox News reports that, according to senior military officials, the predator drones flying above Benghazi during the attacks on our consulate were unarmed. This is the question on which Chris Wallace pressed Democratic Senator Mark Warner over the weekend, to no avail. Correspondent Jennifer Griffin notes that one of the two drones came from Darnah, a city in eastern Libya; the other took off from Sigonella, Italy, to provide backup once the attack was already underway. So why was it unarmed? The Fox report does not provide an answer.
