CIA agents in Benghazi twice asked for permission to help Ambassador Chris Stevens as bullets
Daily Mail ^ | 26 October 2012 | James Nye

Posted on 12/02/2012 9:20:54 AM PST by Texas Fossil

It has been claimed that CIA agents on the ground during the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi twice asked for permission to help Ambassador Chris Stevens and twice were told to stand down.

Furthermore sources present during the deadly six-hour assault have said that a desperate last request for military assistance once the CIA themselves came under attack was denied, even though elite counter-terrorism units were only two hours away.

To Me: The "stand down" order must have originated from Obozo himself.

From the Article:

**

"Ignoring these orders, Woods and two others heroically made their way to the consulate which by now was ablaze and began firing on the attackers."

**

My thought: How do you think fellow CIA operatives feel about this?

What kind of p#ssy organization is this? Asking for permission to defend itself? What next? The military doing this too?

Funny how they walk out and protest for union and FAG benefits, but when it comes down to corruption, no walk outs, no nothing, no investigation of this corrupt son of b!tch.

I believe that the plan was for the ambassador to be captured and Obama would come to the rescue.

It was and is murderous treason, but we are stuck with the creep for 4 more years.

Maybe Obama and his Chicago gang did want the Ambassador dead as a convenient way to coverup a Syrian version of Fast and Furious.

I think they admire their bravery. A hugely unpopular observation is that their returning to “The Farm” after helping at what people are calling a US Consulate had the effect of leading attackers to the farm more sensitive target, The Farm.

42 people could have died, and not just four.

The REAL outrage is the denial of any kind of air support or rescue.

I think when the pair made their decision, they did NOT intend return to The Farm and were amazed that no air support at all was forthcoming.

The CIA could do a patriotic service for America by disclosing what they know about Benghazi and about Barack Obama. However, I doubt that any level of disclosure and information released would dislodge Obama from the altar of cult like worship for so many leftists.

ambassador to be captured and Obama would come to the rescue...

Poor Øbama, he couldn't very well trade a dead ambassador for a live blind sheik. I guess he just stepped up the voter fraud plans to make up for this loss of foreign policy creds. Oh, he'll find another way to free the sheik somewhere in the next couple of years...

Can you believe how this is all being ignored by the MSM like somebody spilled some milk? Well actually I can believe it being that we have a communist propaganda machine posing as our media. If this was on Bushs watch they’d be on this 24/7 treating it like watergate, headlines everyday and calls for impeachment. Instead the unconstitutionally twice elected admitted foreign born Kenyan just skirts. “Toodle oooo...Oh Michelle the dog steaks this year are a trifle gamey! Which celebrity celebration of me are we going to tonight?”

It’s my understanding that “Benghazi type” CIA operatives are told before they leave that... if you ever get into trouble, you’re on your own.

It also calls into question what were the standing orders and policies that resulted in an agency having to request permission to defend itself?

"I doubt that any level of disclosure and information released would dislodge Obama from the altar of cult like worship..."

Obama could forcibly sodomize, cook and eat a blind puppy on national TV and his supporters would claim he was the first person ever who was smart enough to simultaneously promote alternative sex lifestyles, animal rights, paleo-diets and the plight of the seeing disabled.

I know what the policy is at the CIA. If it is to investigate moles and communist, they will not do it: it hurts the morale to see someone fired or investigated...

They tried to disconnect him from FAst and Furious, and he slipped by. But this is FAst and Furious 2 with potential WMD ramifications. Thus it is ALL OBAMA-Jarette-Democrate OWNED, and not “Just Holder”.

I still don’t understand how they can’t follow the chain of command as to who told them to stand down? Where did the order come from? The Republicans can’t find this out?

The company once worked for America and visa versa.

Now, not so much.

The US Constitution is CLEAR but ignored
for a reason, and that is, they want to destroy America
by endless treason, treason, treason.

“What kind of p#ssy organization is this? Asking for permission to defend itself? What next? The military doing this too?” - JEA

They try to follow orders...rule of law, you might have heard of it.

The former SEALs that saved all those live put themselves in legal jeopardy when they did the right thing and saved the lives of so many Americans.

All this because Obama failed to allow a military rescue, already in motion, to take place. Several flag level officers lost their commands because of their (correct) actions on that day. Obama managed to have his orders stick - and no rescue was attempted from outside the borders of Libya.

In all aspects they are part of our Totalitarian Masters.

This is the kind of shit that happens when your starting point for security is a few Marines standing outside the building with M4s with no, or empty magazines in their weapons for ‘window dressing’.

Suddenly, they fall under attack and have to call a ‘political type’ general(who is more concerned about the next dinner party he’s going to than anything else) or some higher up, who then consults with a team of lawyers of some sort to determine if they can return fire to defend themselves. It’s truly pathetic what we have become.....

The only way all this makes sense is if the regime thought that the terror types were on their side. Otherwise, the politics of the situation,which is all they care about,are not on their side. Really, politically this is a lose/lose situation for the regime no matter what!

If the general population found out that this place was nothing but a weapons depot,a halfway house for weapons being shipped all over the mideast to terrorists, the shot would hit the fan.

If we can keep it alive we get major mileage if it ever culminates and we get anywhere near the truth.

Ditto that for me. I think the same thing.I’m not sure about Stevens being used as a hostage/trade for the blind sheik or not.

This only makes sense viewed from the perspective of a trans-national point-of-reference.

Now the question. Who put our “post-turtle” in power? And who does he take orders from?

He certainly does not represent this nation.

The MSM is in this with him. Some GOP leadership is in this with him.

They are ALL Traitors to the U.S.

FUBO!

If true, that is really unbelieveable that this admininstration did nothing to help our men in trouble. How could Obama and his crew just stand by and watch? That is not the American way. We would try, at least try to do something.
I think about as much of Obama as I did about John Kennedy after the bay of pigs attempted invasion. That was another example of when the president should have done something.

That is not the American way.

Exactly but if you are not American anyway...who cares. Everythig the regime does is politically inspired. Stevens and the rest were taken out in the midst of a close race,whether or not things got screwed up or not it was still a political operation.Dead men tell no tales.That should tell you all you need to know.
