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."

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.
