That theater is literally flooded with military assets that could have arrived on scene well within that seven hour timeline. As I recall, units were on standby in Sigonella but waited for a command to act. The command never came. There were also significant assets around Benghazi that could have been used for crowd control. An unarmed drone was sent in instead.
