They were nearby and anybody and everybody who is nearby it was called in for support.
According to various sources there were just five US agents and -- local man secure in the compound when the massive attack began.

Use their energy finding people who did this are you resentful or -- the family members resentful that there wasn't more security there that.
Don't quite possibly your brother would still be alive today if there were all I know is that and he's a hero and he saved people -- I can't think about what could have then.
