By letting them die, the Obama administration avoided a much larger firefight with boots on the ground and lots of "civilian" deaths. The idea that terrorism was alive and well and filling the void that we left in Libya with our lead from behind approach would be unmistakable. That doesn't mean that they intended for these guys to die or that they killed them. It just means that their political considerations trumped saving them.
