“...the interim CIA Director will testify that there were no requests for military backup from Benghazi.”

Isn’t this in direct contradiction to what the people on the ground in Benghazi said? They said they asked three times and were denied and told to stand down. The news reports were very clear about this and presumably those sources are still out there.

Hannity said there is AUDIO of requests for help during the attack. I sure hope someone has made a copy of that for retention outside the regime, otherwise you can bet it’ll be destroyed if not already.

Let us pray that Petraeus tells the TRUTH when he testifies.... open this story up wide. Of course if no one else will back it up, they’ll claim it is just sour grapes over being pressured to resign over the affair (if he even had one).

The first two requests were from Woods for permission to take his own team over from the annex to the main consulate to help the ambassador and his people. He was told to stand down and he defied those orders. So the story goes as told so far. So that wasn't a request for military backup.

Given that the whole thing was live-streaming on video, audio and radio and cell phone communications the lack of a formal request is no excuse for not sending a rescue mission. The need should have been obvious.

Something to e-mail to every talking head, every Senator and every House rep.

--------------------------------------------------------

Fact One:

1) Only the POTUS can authorize a CBA (cross border authority) command for a rescue mission in a foreign nation.

Plus Fact Two:

2) No rescue mission was attempted.

Equals Fact Three:

3) 0bama turned his back on 41 State Dept. and CIA employees refusing to issue a CBA command and went to bed so he could go to Las Vegas the next day.
