EXCLUSIVE: CIA operators were denied request for help during Benghazi attack, sources say
Fox News ^ | October 26, 2012 | Jennifer Griffin

Posted on 10/26/2012 8:37:22 AM PDT by Snuph

Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that three urgent requests from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. Consulate and subsequent attack nearly seven hours later were denied by officials in the CIA chain of command -- who also told the CIA operators to "stand down" rather than help the ambassador's team when shots were heard at approximately 9:40 p.m. in Benghazi on Sept. 11. Former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were part of a small team who were at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. Consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When they heard the shots fired, they radioed to inform their higher-ups to tell them what they were hearing. They were told to "stand down," according to sources familiar with the exchange. An hour later, they called again to headquarters and were again told to "stand down."

How sad is it that the Main Stream Media is standing on the sideline as one of the biggest scandals in modern time is unfolding. They have lost all credibility and are living in a fantasy world. It is such a shame for this country. Without Foxnews you have to go to international news sources to find out about this administration’s treasonous acts. Such a similarity to the old Soviet Union and PRAVDA.

This confirms my initial reaction:

Obama pounded the table and declared:
“We will NOT inject American forces into another mid-East country and create the impression we’re involved in a civil war!”

From there, the team set about inventing excuses.

It appears Obama wanted everyone to die in the attack. Why? Was he running guns to the militant Muslims, an international “Fast and Furious” operation? Were the four Americans slaughtered with weapons from America?

My dear friend, I just want to thank you sooo much for your quick eye for news breakers that matter! You and nachum are serious fluff-free posters
along with a few others I should name, but too disturbed by this story to function.

I am so sick to hear of such colossal abandonment of our guys that for once, I am speechless.

TREASON - aid, comfort and weapons to enemies and pre-meditated lies in the form of direct attacks on amendment 1.

TREASON like this republic has never seen before.

TREASON...in real time...right now...continuous...ongoing.

Apparently as good soldiers do, they disobeyed orders and ran to the fight and not away.

They ARE heroes.

This is an abandonment of Soldiers under fire and heads should role.

Leon Panetta needs to explain. How much more information is needed? Americans were under attack and were dying. He had resources to help them escape.

What other information did he need? He needs to explain exactly what information he was looking for.

This is starting to look even deeper than I thought. It is starting to look as though the Ambassador and the others were deliberately set up to be killed. Now we have to start looking for deeper reasons for it all other than just the cover=up of the failure of the kenyan’s foreign policy and the desire to push sharia.

Last paragraph of article;

Fox News has also learned that Stevens was in Benghazi that day to be present at the opening of an English-language school being started by the Libyan farmer who helped save an American pilot who had been shot down by pro-Qaddafi forces during the initial war to overthrow the regime. That farmer saved the life of the American pilot and the Ambassador wanted to be present to launch the Libyan rescuer's new school.

I don't believe this, not one bit.

Stephens has repeatedly requested security, obviously knew the area was hazardous. He's not gonna take a risk like that for a reason like this. Who was the Turkish guy he met with immediately preceding the attack?

Barack Hussein Obama is guilty of treason. It is time for the House of Representatives to inform the White House that they will begin impeachment proceedings. A landslide against this evil administration is not enough. Traitors should be dealt with. ASAP.

This is looking more and more like an attempt by the president to get the ambassador kidnapped and then successfully negotiate his release before the election.

But then that smoke inhalation thing ruined everything.

At every turn, this event gets worse.

The media doesn’t care, just like Somalia. It wasn’t until the book came out that anyone knew what really happened. Clinton made the military responsible and that was that.

Obama tried to do kind of the same thing here. 10 years ago - before the independent internet media got its foot hold - it would have worked.

Our politicians are playing by the old media rules and keep getting caught and can’t figure out why. Stupid.

Is this the least surprising for a president who refused three opportunities to get Bin Laden—such that Panetta finally had to orchestrate a movement to act without his approval?

Or for a president that’s been aiding and abetting the Al-Qaeda-allied Muslim Brotherhood from his very first days in office?

As more evidence comes in it looks more and more like the finger prints of " Intent " all over it.
The intent to let this happen.
More like criminal intent.

When you have RADICAL ANTI-AMERICAN DEMOCRATS running the country and in the chain of command these are the results you can expect. The socialist democrats committed a fraud to get THE FOREIGNER on the ballot in the first place and have been COVERING HIS INELIGIBLE REAR END EVER SINCE. These frauds probably didn’t want to OFFEND THE MUSLIMS by defending our people. One of the most PATHETIC decisions in a long list of PATHETIC DEMOCRAT decisions I have ever heard.
