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."

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.
Agree and thought as much at the time. Mitt did not need to go there (although I would have appreciated, just one, strong/polite ‘slap back’/lol) Just to let Obama know; that ‘Mitt knew’; but ‘that said’; truly better to taunt Obama and have him ‘shadow boxing’. . .and wondering; ducking an invisible punch. . .As well, too many viewers, had yet; a ‘clue’.
Obama has nothing.
Yes, you are correct. I meant that but didn’t clarify well. Good to see you AFPhys.
Yes, and interestingly; in his case; the big, empty 'O' - means just that. As does 'zerO' speak to Obama. . .the 'empty chair'; the empty suit; the 'empty' promises; empty rhetoric; empty childhood; empty values.
By same token; Obama's emptiness' is full. And hence; his narcissism. . .his being full of his 'empty' self. What is needed of course; if for America to be 'empty' of Obama. . .Here's hoping; like a crazy person. Praying too. . .
