Skip to comments.CIA operators were denied request for help during Benghazi attack, sources say (Impeach Obama!)
Posted on 10/26/2012 12:29:40 PM PDT by tobyhill
Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that an urgent request from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. consulate and subsequent attack several hours later on the annex itself was denied by the CIA chain of command -- who also told the CIA operators twice 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 SEAL Tyrone Woods was part of a small team who was at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When he and others heard the shots fired, they informed their higher-ups at the annex to tell them what they were hearing and requested permission to go to the consulate and help out. They were told to "stand down," according to sources familiar with the exchange. Soon after, they were again told to "stand down."

The man was/is. ..totally derelict in his duty. I would call ‘Treason’. . .
I remember General Dempsey blaming not only an obscure video, but an even more obscure pastor who liked the video, and blaming him (Terry Jones) for the murder of Ty Woods.
Top U.S. military officer (Dempsey) calls pastor (Terry Jones) over anti-Islam film
What a WEASEL, General Dempsey! Dempsey was in the room watching the whole terrorist attack unfold. He probably watched and did nothing while Ty Woods was murdered. Then he later blames an obscure guy who liked an obscure video.
Dempsey is a Lying Sack of Excrement.
It’s time to ‘perp walk’ every one of these MF#&!%@.
Watching our guys die in real time, without lifting a finger to assist.
How you gonna impeach him without the senate?
Oh what a tangled web we weave,
When first we practice to deceive

Forgive my post focusing on the “political slant” as I know people have died over this horrible event. But I find it interesting this news breaks on Friday....secondly, maybe this is being leaked on purpose so “the one” can start a war/or attack Libya and those responsible? Bring up those poll numbers? Or maybe its politically too late.
Actually the story broke early enough in the day to keep it from getting lost in a Friday Night Dump. Good job by Jennifer Griffin.
Failure to defend the sovereign embassy is a failure to defend the USA. That’s a violation of the Oath of Office. Lying and covering it up - when does the crime cross into the realm of aiding and abetting the enemy, e.g. treason?
Words fail me...
Obama, Biden, Panetta, Petraeus and Clinton..disgrace, dereliction of duty and treason.....no matter what happens in this election these individuals should be held accountable for the murder of the four men in Libya.
and imPrison for life.
How are we gonna impeach him with Bohner in the house?
Or Lord Lindsay? Or McConnell?
Reid is the LEAST of what stops us.
Were any of you listening to Rush today? If you weren’t and have Rush 24/7, I encourage you to listen.
Two different service people called in and explained exactly what the protocol is when our troops are in danger. It was incredible. These guys both say that there was no way bammy didn’t get the message ................they were both well spoken guys, and laid the protocol for such an event out very plainly.
Same way they impeached Clinton?
Forget impeachment: he won’t be re-elected anyway. After the election bring criminal charges for dereliction of duty and oath of office, treason, and anything else that can stick against Obama and all other involved. They need to be punished!
Guess what they’re talking about at DU? Mitt Romney’s JEEP “gaffe” that wasn’t a gaffe.
I heard and believe them.
I called Speaker Boehner's office # 202-225-0600
I urge everyone to call and let him know we expect more than a bunch of hearings after the election. I want these people held accountable!
Dempsey wants this cover-up dead and buried just like the two former Navy Seals that he abandoned to the murderous Muslim terrorists.
Dempsey also wants any of these CIA personnel telling the truth to be silenced immediately.
General Dempsey Tacitly Endorses Barack Obama
By: streiff (Diary) | September 8th, 2012 at 02:02 PM |
Two weeks ago Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Martin Dempsey waded into the 2012 political campaign by criticizing a ad run by a Super PAC composed of former Special Operations veterans opposing the re-election of Barack Obama.
At the time, General Dempsey made this statement as reported in The Hill:
If someone uses the uniform, whatever uniform, for partisan politics, I am disappointed because I think it does erode that bond of trust we have with the American people, Dempsey said during his flight back from a trip to Afghanistan and Iraq.
Obama White House On Benghazi Emails Nothing To See Here Just Move Along Now
by Ulsterman on October 25, 2012 with 7 Comments in News
Refusing to answer even the simplest of questions regarding who knew what and when, the Obama White House is now clearly counting on the American people not paying attention to the looming Benghazi Massacre scandal in the days leading up to the presidential election
The regular activities at the Consulate were less sensitive than those at “The Farm” (aka annex). Is it good to lead attackers from the ceremonial papre-shuffling place to the secret squirrel place....?
Cuz THAT is what they might have ended up doing.
Brave? Yes. Smart? Sounds brutal, but sorry...not smart.
Was the bisexual muzzie a coward not to order in a lead tsunami from above? ABSOLUTELY....!!!!!!!
