BOMBSHELL: US Troops Wouldn't Have Been Painting Targets on Ground Unless There Was Air Support..
Obama said he gave a directive to do everything possible to help our people. So who decided to tell the former seals and other people at the annex not to go and help. If that happened and Obama actually gave the directive above, why isn't he outraged that his order was defied?
According to Petraeus, the CIA didn't give the order to stand down. So who did? If the Secretary of Defense was responsible for the stand down order, why is the President protecting him? Petraeus did not deny that there was an order given. He just said the CIA did not give the order.
They are painting themselves in a corner.
As I understand it, the CIA cannot give orders to the military to do anything, their mission is the collection of foreign intelligence.
In some situations, the on site military can give orders to engage in foreign defensive operations, i.e. a ship at sea under attack, a military compound overseas under attack. The embassy in this situation is kind of different, it is US soil and had no on site military presence.
So to me, the NCA is the responsible agency here which should have ordered help. The NCA is His Excellency through the Sec of Def....sounds like Panetta is falling on the sword for his excellency who was probably too involved in honing his basketball game or running for office to worry about our embassy.
Yep. However, it looks like WE'RE gonna have to keep the pressure on because the lameass MSM sure isn't doing their job!
