Three times help was requested during the attack, and three times it was denied.
This is where it gets sticky.
The denials came before Woods and Doherty disobeyed orders and ran to engage.
Who was asking for help? Who denied the requests for help? What chain of command had this responsibility?
Was it Woods or Doherty who painted the laser targets? If so, what was their chain of command?
Who controlled the drones that were capturing the live events? Per some reports, one of those drones was armed. What chain of command operated the drones? Was the laser painting for these drones or for other attack aircraft?
There are still too many vague areas, and all we are getting bits and pieces.

-——The denials came before Woods and Doherty disobeyed orders and ran to engage-——
Based on my understanding of the Fox news piece by Gregg Palcott, they did not run to engage. Rather in the larger context, they ran to disengage, to facilitates retreat, to rescue those at the consulate.
They were partially successful but could not find the Ambassador. They returned to a defensive position that turned out to be the Alamo or Wake Island. There was no final rescue from afar, no cavalry charge from across the plain.
