The United States military, as I've said, is not and, frankly, should not be a 911 service capable of arriving on the scene within minutes to every possible contingency around the world. The U.S. military has neither the resources nor the responsibility to have a fire house next to every U.S. facility in the world.

-- Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, in his opening statement to the Senate Armed Services Committee, 7 February 2013
