    I'm sure they're talking about the DC police watch commander - that's who the DC unit would have taken direction from.

    But the reason the watch commander made the order had not been communicated. I doubt he did that on his own, in a vacuum.

    I'm not one to hesitate in criticizing Obama when warranted, but this isn't such an occasion. The plausible and common sense explanation is that there was a lot of confusion in the heat of the moment and some bureaucrat punted on making a decision, preferring to wait until more information was known rather than taking a more aggressive response and potentially being wrong.
