"Neither the president nor anyone in the White House denied any requests for assistance in Benghazi," National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor told Yahoo News by email.

And the CIA has denied that anyone in its chain of command rejected requests for help from the besieged Americans.

Well, the personnel on the ground would have made the request through either the WH or CIA. There are only 2 conclusions to be made from those statements.

1 - No request for assistance was ever made. That's highly unlikely.

2 - A massive and blatantly obvious lie/cover up is in effect.

Well, if Obamazombie, Little Tommy Vietor says it, it must be true.

He did not deny them, he simply ignored the requests.

Another lie of omission by the Obama regime. Obama "voted present" on Benghazi and people died because of it.

The system was set to automatically help the Ambassador.

Obama STOPPED it for al Qaeda and his other allies
(who happen to be enemies of the American people).

So now they’re on record saying the White House was out of the loop.

Either they’re stupid, or they’re even stupider.

The noose tightens.

The White House has been lying since the day this happened. What's one more lie now? The election is only ten days away, and after that none of this will officially matter.

Note he didn’t he say: “The President did not receive any requests for assistance.”

So #2 is probably correct.

They are going to try and lie their way through it for 10 days in the hope they win and can then have a fake investigation to give them cover. At some point that will either fall apart, or they’ll admit to themselves that Mitt is going to win.

At that point they will be VERY dangerous.

The MSM isn’t going to put a spotlight on this any more than they have to. Probably our best bet is the Clinton’s will try to salvage their careers by throwing BHO to the wolves and making him responsible for everything.

Panetta said in the NY Times that he was at the WH during the attack, and that risk “impeded” deployment, so I guess they’re going to try to say, ‘we never said no, just not yet’ (until the 4 Americans were dead)

Yep. Clearly he was informed and if he allowed an underling to deny those requests that is de facto denying the requests.

Then, who did?

A suggestion/warning for all ambassadors/embassy staff posted in dangerous areas.

Don’t depend on help from POTUS, SOD, SOS or the CIA! They will not respond to any SOS’s. Then they will deny that you asked for help.

Buy or rent an Iridium Sat Phone and put Fox News Desk, Rush, Drudge, Rush and Free Republic on your speed dial, to text or call when you don’t want to be slaughtered and need help.

That way the liars of this administration in charge of denying protection for you, can’t deny that you asked for help.

Don’t waste your remaining time contacting ABCNNBCBS! They are too busy protecting Obozo and his liars while looking for binder and racism lies save the butt of the traitor and his fellow thugs!

Which probably means that Valerie Jarrett was the one in the situation room issuing the Stand Down while the Bozo in Chief was getting his beauty sleep before heading off to Vegas.

Defense officials say they did not receive a request for military support from the State Department as the attack unfolded.

You have to parse the words these weasels use. CIA says they never told anybody NOT to help. Defense Dept. says they never got a request for assistance from State Dept. (does Hillary have to call Leon and ask for some special forces guys to save her people?) Now the POTUS office says ....”Neither the president nor anyone in the White House denied any requests for assistance in Benghazi,........

Bottom line is they are parsing again. If you do not deny a request for help it is completely different than ISSUING an order to help. If you ask me if you can borrow $20 and I ignore you, you can’t say I denied your request.

Sooo...

If the CIA didn’t deny them assistance, and the White House didn’t deny them assistance, then the Defense Department or the State Department is going to take the fall.

Panetta has already admitted DoD wouldn’t help, but is he going to take the blame?

Ok, well, this is easy enough.

We find out who the folks on the ground, were talking to.

Panetta and Obama both claim that they were never asked to provide support.

There are enough people, still alive..... that know plenty about this. The leader of the team that WAS supporting the embassy, until his team was removed 2 weeks before the attack, can clearly state that he made every effort to convince the administration that his team should NOT have been pulled out.

This is just incredible. I hope Obama just fries for this.

First, we’ll remove him via the election, then a full investigation into the matter with that stonewalling regime gone, is going to be quite telling.

what utter B/S, so now they cover up their cover up to hide their orignal cover up and the media still ignores this.

Only one person can give that order to stand down and that is obama , so where was obama during this, ?
Did obama watch the attack live time?
Did he go to bed after knowing that an attack was happening?

obama has lied repeatedly and no wonder he wants many to vote early[and often] because this is catching up and the media is trying to hold off as much as they can.

"Obama "voted present" on Benghazi and people died because of it."

That is his style - unfortunately, the deaths of four Americans got in the way of his style. He "voted present" and he lied to the American people.

He is a LITTLE MAN .

Actually, he is NO MAN AT ALL - he is the EXTENSION of Valarie Jarrett and his wife.

Or,

Well--if 0 did NOT deny requests for help, then he just admitted he DID got these requests. Which means he WAS aware the requests for help were being sent out--in real time!

Ergo: he KNEW in real time what was going down, and either did NOT deny the request for help, or APPROVED them.

But, if they were approved--why weren't the requests acted upon, since he is the CIC.

Ergo: Obama DID NOT DENY them, he just did NOTHING!!!!

Lord have mercy on U.S.!

I was wondering why the AC130 gunship was not used...then remembered seeing something about a Syrian army helicopter blowing up in mid-air about ten days ago. Maybe Quaddafi’s shoulder-fired missile inventory has been scattered far and wide making the gunship vulnerable. Don’t think the Poseur would want us knowing about that before election day.

And they have one more parse. “Neither the president nor anyone in the White House denied any requests for assistance.”

Could also mean, “Neither the president nor anyone in the White House denied [there were] any requests for assistance [to the media].

See how easy that was? Or to add another, the President says to a State Dept official, “I am giving no order to engage” and the State Dept official [who is outside the White House] is the one who issues the denial of assistance. The CIA never got the request.

But your parse is the most likely - they sat and watched and ignored them.

A good response - troops should have these phones, too.

They sure couldn't count on Obama, or his administration, to have their back when they are in combat.
