Ham, Gen. Dempsey and I felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation.”The information I heard today was that General Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the attack was taking place.

His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command.
