EXCLUSIVE: CIA operators were denied request for help during Benghazi attack, sources say
Fox News ^ | October 26, 2012 | Jennifer Griffin

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.

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.

The maddening thing is that the rest of the LSM will ignore this.

Imagine that this happened under the Bush administration.

When questioned, Barry will invoke executive privilege.

Shortly after he will declare himself king.

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.

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.

General Petraeus


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.
