Posted on 10/26/2012 8:37:22 AM PDT by Snuph
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."

Rush said this story will shake the nation to its core.
This is enormous, and the MSM will be forced to cover this.
This will neither shake the country to it’s core or force Pravda to cover it.
That, my friend, is very plausible!! Great analysis!
National Security is at risk...Obama needs to resign NOW! No waiting til January....we cannot risk our security....NOW!
Obama lied. SEALS died.
It should be chanted whereever Obama, Biden, or any campaign proxy appear.
The Whores of Disinformation (to paraphrase Oscar Wilde) would have to eventually cover it.
sick to my stomach....but I am taking action....no more just waiting for January, this President needs to leave the White House NOW! IMMEDIATELY!
The maddening thing is that the rest of the LSM will ignore this.
Imagine that this happened under the Bush administration.
4 days for Obama and Clinton to get UN Aprovals.
Same here. Enough is enough... The time for action is NOW. We should be slamming the phone lines of our Congress critters NOW’, and demand accountability from the corrupt Obama regime. If we tie up Congress’ phone lines, there’s no way the MSM can ignore this massive, appalling story,
A Mitt Romney multi-million dollar ad buy with this would force the MSM to at least mention it
I fully agree. These four brave men, who have more courage in their little toe than the entire Obama Administration, prevented dozens of other Americans from either being murdered or kidnapped. October surprise anyone?
General Petraeus was following his own COIN protocol and not allowing defense of the building because the perps were probably civilians of some country somewhere.
have called 2 offices(1 Senator, 1 House)...others are busy...I am demanding resignations.....
Trying to get thru to Boehner’s office. Saying they are experiencing heavy call volume!!
I started calling yesterday and sending letters to demand investigations yesterday. Today I am calling demanding forced resignations too. I just left a message at Boehner’s office.
I’m sorry my friend, but I must correct you. These two Hero’s were way above Average Americans. Too bad as contractors they aren’t eligible for the Medal of Honor.
New Explosive Benghazi Allegations: CIA Operators Told to Stand Down During Attack & 3 Urgent Requests for Military Back-Up Were Denied
There is ONE man in this administation that I believed would draw a red line in the sand when it comes to orders from the White House and refuse to follow those orders.
The article very clearly states that three times the former SEALS were told to stand down by the CIA chain of command.
That explains Petraeus’ silence. At the critical moment of confronting a grave moral challenge he chose to abandon former comrades-in-arms, the Ambassador of the United States, and his honor to bend his knee to the Kenyan pretender and his commie cohort.
How can he possibly hope to maintain a shred of respect from those in the CIA or the armed forces after this.
Man up Petraeus, go public now at this critical time for the Republic. Own your shame and moral cowardice or be damned forever as a self-serving POS unworthy of the uniform you once wore and of the trust the citizens of these United States bestowed upon you.
May the horror of the videos haunt you to your dying day.
General Petraeus needs to come clean.
