I see a lot of back and forth on what the CIA director did or did not do, what he's guilty of or not, etc.

Here's the bottom line. Those under attack in Libya sent multiple requests for help. Seals in Libya requested permission to help. SOMEBODY (probably POTUS) told them to stand down. Repeatedly. This sealed the fate of those under attack. Did anyone defy those orders? Not the VP, Sec of State, Sec of Defense, or CIA Director. None of them had the guts to put their careers on the line. On the other hand, the Seals in Libya DID defy those orders, because they simply could not stand by and do nothing. They risked much more than their careers. They risked their lives, ultimately in vain because no more help came to back them up. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE OFFICIALS are pond scum, not worthy to lick the boots of those who gave their lives trying to defend other American lives in Libya.

The blood is on ALL of their hands and I pray it never washes off.

The Seals were EX Seals, not active military.

Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were in Benghazi as part of a security contractor force.

They would not be subject to military orders to stand down.

Those two men are not who Jennifer Griffin was referring to in the three orders to stand down. She was referring to ACTIVE military units aware of the events and on the ready to intervene.
