Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that three urgent requests from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. Consulate and subsequent attack nearly seven hours later were denied by officials in the CIA chain of command -- who also told the CIA operators 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 SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were part of a small team who were at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. Consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When they heard the shots fired, they radioed to inform their higher-ups to tell them what they were hearing. They were told to "stand down," according to sources familiar with the exchange. An hour later, they called again to headquarters and were again told to "stand down."

Drudge is asleep today.
How sad is it that the Main Stream Media is standing on the sideline as one of the biggest scandals in modern time is unfolding. They have lost all credibility and are living in a fantasy world. It is such a shame for this country. Without Foxnews you have to go to international news sources to find out about this administration’s treasonous acts. Such a similarity to the old Soviet Union and PRAVDA.
Reading this brings tears to my eyes.
This confirms my initial reaction:
Obama pounded the table and declared:
We will NOT inject American forces into another mid-East country and create the impression were involved in a civil war!
From there, the team set about inventing excuses.
The President should be impeached and the others around him FIRED. This makes me just sick and what is even worse is...NO ONE seems to even care about this! It’s worse than disgusting!!!!!
Its “Clear and Present Danger” IRL ....
This was deliberate. Stevens was thrown under the bus.
Democrat patriot Pat Caddell has said the mainstream media have become "the enemy of the country".
THIS WAS A HIT! It was organized by you know who.
They needed to clip the ambassador for some reason.
It appears Obama wanted everyone to die in the attack. Why? Was he running guns to the militant Muslims, an international “Fast and Furious” operation? Were the four Americans slaughtered with weapons from America?
How many Americans must be murdered by
Obama, Holder and Clinton before a single
person in the US Congress WAKES UP???????????
My dear friend, I just want to thank you sooo much for your quick eye for news breakers that matter! You and nachum are serious fluff-free posters
along with a few others I should name, but too disturbed by this story to function.
I am so sick to hear of such colossal abandonment of our guys that for once, I am speechless.
Its not the first time our guys have been left to die like this.
Mogudishu is a name that comes to mind.
"Reading this brings tears to my eyes."
This will go down as one of the darkest days in our nation's history.
Obama Denied, Americans Died
Hillary lied, and the Media Complied!
Pres. Romney’s just going to let Hussein slither away while calling for “healing”, won’t he?
TREASON - aid, comfort and weapons to enemies and pre-meditated lies in the form of direct attacks on amendment 1.
TREASON like this republic has never seen before.
TREASON...in real time...right now...continuous...ongoing.
