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....!!!!!!!
Romney has been very smart. He knew something and set Obama up in that debate. And both Obama and the moderator took the bait. The the media started to walk, not run, with the Benghazi situation. At the time I thought that it would suck all the air out of the campaign and push everything else aside for a few days. But no, this is going to have legs all the way to the election. The ex-seals family is kicking the crap out of Obama and Hillary in the media now. They are pissed and have gone Honey Badger.
I can assure you of one thing. Unlike Obama Romney will be paying attention at the intelligence briefings not that he and Ryan has access. That is a good thing as far as I'm concerned.
I was not a big Romney fan a few weeks ago but I am now. He has some real skills and they are the right skills for right now!
If we hold onto congress and win the Senate, Obama MUST be IMPEACHED, regardless of the presidential election results.
The IMPEACHMENT proceedings should begin the day after the election.
EVERY politician needs to hear our DEMANDS.
Good idea-—I’ll make that call today.
Col. Hunt - a regular contributor on FOX - stated that the reason Amb. Stevens was in Benghazi is as shocking as the way he died.
Have not heard if he ever elaborated on that.
Jennifer Griffin is doing an amazing job.
at the very LEAST the house can impeach him over the issue
FORCE the senate to defend him
doing the right thing, especially in this situation, is imperative
The mainstream media are not covering 0bamas traitorous actions and the coverup. Did they get a phone call from the White House?
The fact that 0bama has not been impeached proves that half the American public has its head up its a$$, that the media is complicit in the crime, and that the Republican party is a party of wimps.
I would agree. there were a few stories about the blind sheik leading up to 9-11... almost as if they were prepping the groundwork
Skunking him in the election fits the crime far better than impeachment. Plus it isn't such a time waster for the house and senate!!!
Yep and so is squirrelly Megan Kelly...lol. She is spitting mad and going for broke. I regret bad mouthing her in the past now...lol.
This POS could not stop spiking the football when it came to UBL. They knew about the whole operation.
They know nothing about Benghazi or how to counterattack when their on the phone with a Tier One Operator.
Oh, and please tell me there was not a C-130 gunship on station!
Dempsey’s phone call to pastor....
Megyn Kelly is spitting mad?
GOOD on her!
I won’t have control of my TV till the top of the coming hour...LOL.
Well...maybe spitting mad was a little stretch...lol...but you can see the indignation rising her temperature right under the surface. She is doing a good job with this story.
What then? If Zero wins, we’re stuck with Biden? I just pray that Romney wins.
The CIA has already trotted out a spokesperson to maintain full denial that requests were denied.
If Griffin doesn’t reveal her sources, I’m afraid this will be pooh-poohed by Obama/Washington.
Do we really want to do that again without a prosecution?
I don’t care about impeachment so much as I care about seeing him and his traitorous cronies in jail.
From what I can tell, he’s been operating a traitorous and criminal enterprise all along. Lefties accused Bush of all sorts of things, but they were all the variety of “I don’t like his policies, so I will call him a criminal or a monster.” 0bama, on the other hand, has been corrupt and embezzling from the taxpayer since day one of his presidency. Actually since long before that. This is not a matter of disliking his politics. This is a matter of criminal behavior.
My best guess is that once 0bama realized his defeat was inevitable, he went full throttle with his anti-American agenda.
One really nice thing about Zippy and his worshippers thinking he’s such a genius is that he gets trapped in his own web. They think they are so clever, and can get away with anything.
It will be interesting to watch the cockroaches running from the light as this unravels further. It will be interesting to see them start eating each other as they try to cut deals and deflect blame.
General Dempsey, who risked life and limb calling that huge security threat, the preacher Terry Jones, to accuse him of being responsible for the whole affair and asking him not to show The Video. Head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, reduced to an Obama tool.
Hopefully we will vote him out of office and strip him of his pension.
Question....IF Obama were to be re-elected, IF investigated for this tragic incident and IF impeached, would there be anything to be done about being stuck with Biden?
That would depend on whom Jackass Joe picked for VP.
The CIA spokesman stated that CIA did not deny the requests.
They clearly did not deny that the requests had been denied, leaving just as clearly the implication that State and/or Whitehouse itself was responsible for the denials. Check it out again here: <Petraeus Throws Obama Under the Bus>
In addition, it is going to be very important that a lot of very important business be accomplished quickly. Impeachment proceedings would squander not only time but “political capital”, and the important business of undoing the last four years damage would be delayed or even left undone.
Hearings, and complete airing of what occurred in Benghazi, as well as other hearings: fine. Impeachment, though, will not accomplish a thing.
IF the hearings were to discover that one of the wilder conspiracy theories to be true, for example, “The plan was to allow Stevens to be kidnapped and exchanged for the ‘blind sheik’”, THEN more drastic action would be supported. However, on the much more likely event that President maintains he was chicken, and simply decided to not go in because he believed they would die anyway at the cost of jeopardizing other troops, that IS the type of call a commander is entitled to make, even if I disagree with such a call.
Think it easily - and definitely - a 'Treason'. Arming al Qaeda; for 'Jihad' certainly should qualify as well.
