When distress reports reached U.S. Intelligence in Langley and the Pentagon that the American ambassador to Benghazi and dozens of his diplomatic personnel were under terrorist attack in Libya on Sept. 11 2012, CIA and Defense Department officials scrambled an immediate response.
Officials moved quickly to assemble a counter-terrorism team of professionals to dispatch to Benghazi. That little-known but elite squad, known as the Foreign Emergency Support Team (FEST), is in fact the governments sole inter-agency, on call and short notice team trained to respond to any terror-related incident in the world.
But not this time. Not in Benghazi.
FEST agents intent on rescuing the stranded Americans from the siege on the U.S. diplomatic compounds in Benghazi including Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens were told to stand down, according to shocking revelations by FBI agents and CIA sources who spoke to True Pundit.
Robyn Gritz, a decorated FBI agent who previously served as the Bureaus official attaché to the CIA prior to Benghazi, recalls the troubling details surrounding the stand-down order.
Gritz details the FBI counter-terrorism divisions initial emergency meeting to discuss the unfolding events in Benghazi. In the meeting led by now FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, he briefed agents about the violent attacks in Benghazi. McCabe was assistant director of anti-terrorism at the time but running the FBIs response to Benghazi, sources confirm.

Where was Obama?
Six years theyve been hiding this.
To protect Democrat politicians and bureaucrats.
Cancel their Visas until this is sorted out.
Watch flights to Argentina.
They had to send FBI because FBI was controlled by loyal Democrats.
Too much risk of Democrat crimes being discovered if other agencies were involved.
The Democrats have been bluffing, bullying and bribing for six years.
Betting over/under on how many survivors?
Obama made himself unavailable and only he could give cross border authority.
R Love was servicing him.
The immediate order of the day was to work on spin and perfect a media effort, NOT to try to rescue our American heroes.
Unavailable to give cross border authority.
It was supposed to be a kidnapping so Obama could swap the Ambassador for the Blind Sheik, but some CIA contractors refused to stand down and killed the plan. And a large number of jihadis.
Thats actually a plausible scenario
The Benghazi operation was an ongoing weapons and finance clearing house run by the State Department and CIA, dispersing weapons seized during Lybia fall. Sid Blumenthal was the sales rep and bag man reporting directly to Hillary Clinton in this operation. The Stevens kidnapping if possible was Obama’s meddling.
I am numbed by the audacity of these arrogant scoundrels.
Shame on them.
I want justice.
Only the POTUS had the authority to act!
0bama was notified immediately and automatically when the Benghazi consulate triggered the "Imminent Danger Notification System" alert. He did nothing.

There are three scandals here...
Denial of prior requests for security were a dereliction of duty. The lies and misdirection about the "video" after the attack were fraud and malfeasance under the color of authority. The inaction during the attack was something more than that.
The failure to act during the attack is the direct equivalent of desertion IMO.
ONE man had the authority to act that night.
0bama refused to act!
The Benghazi Scandal Grows May 20, 2013
"CIA director David Petraeus was surprised when he read the freshly rewritten talking points an aide had emailed him in the early afternoon of Saturday, September 15. One day earlier, analysts with the CIAs Office of Terrorism Analysis had drafted a set of unclassified talking points policymakers could use to discuss the attacks in Benghazi, Libya. But this new versionproduced with input from senior Obama administration policymakerswas a shadow of the original."
This was one of the worst days/events in the history of our great county. It both saddens and infuriates me to think of our people left alone in this battle.
Some one set them up the Al-Qaeda bomb!
