General: We May Have Been Able to Save Benghazi Victims, We'll Never Know

Retired Air Force Brigadier General Robert Lovell admitted during a House Oversight hearing Thursday that saving the Americans under attack in Benghazi might have been possible, but he added they would never know for sure.

Lovell was in command of the U.S. Africa Command’s headquarters in Germany during the attack, but he has since retired.

Lovell said they looked to the State Department in regards to Libyan authorities and worked to get “situational awareness” of the attack as it unfolded.

“Four individuals died, sir. We obviously did not respond in time to get there,” Lovell stated.

“Could we have?” Chaffetz asked.
