At what point does this become a story beyond Fox News?
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 was denied by U.S. officials who also told the CIA operators twice to stand down rather than help the ambassadors team when shots were heard at approximately 9:40 p.m. in Benghazi on Sept. 11. ....
[SNIP of events reported by Fox News]
....What. in the hell. was going on?
Woodss father, Charles Woods, alluded to all this in his interview with Glenn Beck. This story puts more meat on the bone.
It seems like an extraordinarily important story to me. Is it just me??

It becomes a story ‘beyond’ when the all-glorious MSM finally reconciles to themselves the fact that Obama is going to lose and they must somehow begin to rehabilitate their credibility.
For criminals, acts of contrition only begin after they are caught.
The MSM will NEVER cover this story because their IDOL, Obama and Hillary have BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS!
Someone at CBA Money is going Rogue.
CBS = Communist Broadcast System
It becomes a story beyond when all the alphabets realize all their viewers are watching Fox!
If I’m not mistaken, it was Sheryl Adelson (?) from CBS who first broke the story, then Fox picked up on it. If my information is wrong, please correct me.
I don’t see how this story stays out of the mouthpiece media forever. I don’t think Pravda in the 1970s was this bad.
The accusation by the Left was that the only reason this is a story is because of right-wing politics.
In reality, the only reason it ISN’T a story, is because of Left-wing politics.
If this is not being coveed on NBC, CBS, CNN, ABC, PBS etc., then it didn’t really happen. /sarc>
If we had such a "data base" it would be easy to send the link to journalists in the MSM and bloggers.
Remember, apart from political bias, the one thig that stops a journo from writing about a story like this is the many fact he/she will have to gather - not least to be able to withstand the blow-back from the WH.
Hillary? Just turn that over in your mind.
Shamefully it won’t be covered. And that should scare the living daylights out of all of us....because it means there is no freedom of speech or freedom of the press.
OK, we will gather the FACTS and put them in their inboxes.
I think it’s a good idea, but, honestly, most of the MSM are even too lazy to go grab and cite even such a centrally located cache of truth as that.
They prefer to mingle and chat amongst themselves, propagating the same lies and chat, spouting the WH talking points precisely because it offers no peer blowback. The very last thing they want is to invite the wrath of David Axelrod or that Jarrett ‘woman’.
Sorry, that’s the way it works (and not only in the US). I have been involved in a number of election campaigns here in Sweden, and believe me there is nothing the journalists love as much as a ready made story - they can actually improve it, package it, and sell it very well, but they need someone to feed them (and explain) the facts....
What if they pulled a Torricelli and put another name at the top of the ticket? We already know they think they can do anything.
Especially for the way the father Woods, and the Mother Smith have been slighted by the Obama adm.
The MSM is NOT going to be able to cover up for Obama on Benghazi.
How is Sweden? WOrth seeing?? We are looking at cruises that stop there.
I only do front page news...CBS:
“Admin. rejects new claim about Libya attack”
at least it was mentioned.
If your are a so called journalist working for these propagandist news outlets you will realize that to step out into the light has consequencese unless of coarse you have plans on working somewhere else. Fall in line comrade. You have to also ask yourself why black on white crime is not reported at all across this nation. While white on black is national news out of a small town of 15 people in bumf## Iowa. The media outlets not on the side of all things American they see themselves as quasi new world order propagandists against the capitolist society THAT FEEDS THEM. It is time we put these bastards on a diet
Sweden - well worth a visit, but depends on time of year and weather. Please, Freep-mail me, but don’t expect an answer before Monday.
ABC has two stories posted.
CNN has a denial posted.
There was a story out that stated Bill tried to convince Hillary to spill the beans. I believe he convinced her and "Stand Down" is the result!
Obama is not answering the question on who ordered the stand down, he's gonna have to BEFORE the election.
Fortunately for Obama, hurricane Sandy is taking over the headlines. The aftermath of the storm will dominate the news until election day.
I’m sure he & his handlers are all high-fiving each other over that stroke of luck.
“If we had such a “data base” it would be easy to send the link to journalists in the MSM and bloggers.”
Info sent to the MSM would be useless. They have the info; they know as much about the subject as we do. But if they disseminated the info to the public it would counter their liberal agenda.
The only way people will hear about it is if conservative organizations buy time on TV and broadcast the info in short, info-packed, 30-second clips. (Libs have an attention span as long as a gnat.) Put out a few clips of the interview of Tyrone Woods’ father by Megyn Kelly.
More : 4 LINKS to info.
.....The American special operators, Woods, Doherty and at least two others were part of the Global Response Staff, a CIA element, based at the CIA annex and were protecting CIA operators who were part of a mission to track and repurchase arms in Benghazi that had proliferated in the wake of Muammar Qaddafis fall. Part of their mission was to find the more than 20,000 missing MANPADS, or shoulder-held missiles capable of bringing down a commercial aircraft. According to a source on the ground at the time of the attack, the team inside the CIA annex had captured three Libyan attackers and was forced to hand them over to the Libyans. U.S. officials do not know what happened to those three attackers and whether they were released by the Libyan forces.......
We won;t be going until next summer, but I’ll write you...thanks!
Not to worry, the Stasi media will regain its journalistic integrity once Romney is elected. They will be ‘free at last’ to print the truth again with a republican administration to hunt down.
You would think they would welcome republicans in power because it makes ‘journalism’ so much fun.
The truth will eventually emerge after The Traitor has been swept out of office and the ‘tell all’ books that the media hacks have been saving for their personal gain start showing up on store book shelves. Suddenly there will be Pulitzers galore to spread among their own. None for Brett Baier though.
And the second the hurricane makes landfall, the regime will pour all kinds of assistance into the area to appear responsive.
“And the second the hurricane makes landfall, the regime will pour all kinds of assistance into the area to appear responsive.”
Yup - anything they can do to keep it in the headlines and Benghazi off the front page.
Not a mention of this on MSNBC website....the Propaganda Ministry (MSM) are all working hard to keep it that way!

How do we accomplish this before we fire Obama's sorry, loser, irresponsible ass?
NBC, CBS, CNN et al have been told to stand down by the Ministry of Praise and Propaganda. They are waiting for their marching orders on how to spin this to the benefit of the lawless one.
“. waiting for their marching orders on how to spin this to the benefit of the lawless one.”
Funny you should observe that......the RinoCracy is pushing this out right here...this am
Hoping, I’m sure, this will keep anyone in DC from having to public ally demonstrate a backbone and balls....
Tin foil hat time. Would Petraeus really tell agents only a mile away from the consulate that they couldn’t help Stevens and the SEAL’s? What if this entire story is false and was created by say, MSNBC (or someone else) as bait to make Romney jump on it and make Foxnews look like clowns? After the bait is taken, it’s revealed the story is a hoax (without MSNBC admitting it was them who created the story)and Romney and Foxnews are totally humiliated only 9 days from the election.
“The only way people will hear about it is if conservative organizations buy time on TV and broadcast the info in short, info-packed, 30-second clips. (Libs have an attention span as long as a gnat.) Put out a few clips of the interview of Tyrone Woods father by Megyn Kelly.”
I agree with the sentiment and like the idea, but you have to consider that the leftmedia probably won’t run the ads. That’s why Randall Terry ran for President; so the leftmedia couldn’t refuse to show the (anti-abortion) ads they wanted to pay for and run.
What LAZY journalists we have if WE have to do their work for them and they STILL won’t write about their little man-child President!!
It’s not laziness. Look how well they dug things up on Palin. And if Romney is elected? Woo-hoo! They will be reporting everything from when he takes his morning dump to when he falls asleep at night. No scandal will be too small for them to investigate, including jaywalking. The media will make it absolute hell for Romney.
The author of that story will be fired.
If Bush were president, the interview with the father of the murdered soldier would be all over the news, on the front page of every paper for weeks.
The mainstream media is doing this deliberately, intentionally, with full knowledge and awareness of what they are doing, and the full extent of the effect of their actions. It is not an oversight. It is not an error in judgement.
I would say the media would cover it if Romney mentioned it, but they would only slap him down with the canned answer and say “for shame exploiting this tragedy — jumping the gun ahead of the facts!” So I do not know who else could end-run the media firewall.
I think it is going to take a local media person to ask the hard questions and pin the president down when he talks about “we will hunt them down” instead of narrating who knew what, when, who turned down requests for extra security prior to 9/11, who turned down the requests for help in real-time, and why didn’t we respond effectivley in real time. Someone will have to ask: “Did you underestimate the amount of violent turmoil you had helped unleash with the Arab Spring? If so, who is to blame for the failed intelligence? If not, why was insufficient security provided for our Ambassador?”
Actually, someone needs to write down a list of about 20 questions, in logical order, and walk him through them until he gets up and walks off, and catch that on camera.
Beyond that, protests at his appearances would help, if phrased pointedly (”Who was in charge in DC while our embassy was under attack? Where were you when our nation was under attack? What happens in Benghazi stays in Vegas.”)
