Exclusive: CIA operators were
denied request for help during
Benghazi attack, sources say

Fox News, by Jennifer Griffin

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/26/2012 11:23:15 AM

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

This will enrage you even more after reading this. 0bama should resign. He's a corrupt liar and a disgrace to this country. They all have blood on their hands.

They didn't have to die, they were murdered not only by the terrorists but also by those in this Administration.

WHY did he want the ambassador killed? And, when we have a rogue, corrupt potus, what happened to the other branches of government that were/are expected to keep him in line?

FTA:""There's a lot of Monday morning quarterbacking going on here," Panetta said Thursday. "But the basic principle here ... is that you don't deploy forces into harm's way without knowing what's going on."

Repeated requests to engage that were denied, and these poloticians want us to believe they didn't know what was going on. Criminal Regime, hey Brian Williams, care to comment?

Just stop and think for a minute. Were it not for Fox News, all that we would think that we know at the moment is that a You Tube video caused a riot that spun out of control. Does it not chill ANYONE in the MSM that a man sits in jail because he made a video, and the Obama administration finds it convenient for him to be sitting in jail?

Throughout his entire administratiion one question I have had is "whose side is Obama on?"

I now know for sure. It is not that of the United States.

And why is that man still sitting in jail? Peopel..wake up... it could be you if you do something against this corrupt government currently in power in DC.

Vote like our freedom depends on it. Vote Romney/Ryan.

Just saw Brett Baier interview with John McCain and he said there were NO units on alert status at the time. Meaning, that even though there were 2 previous attacks in April and June, an attempted assassination of the British Ambassador and the fact that it was a 9/11 anniversary there were no troops on alert status?!!

I want to know who issued the order to Stand Down? I want to know why there were 2 drones there sending back video but nothing was done to protect these Americans? Why were 2 drones dispatched and NO troops were on Alert Status.

The only thing that smells worse than this is the MSM cover-up. I seriously don't think the word Treason has meaning anymore.

Monday morning quarterbacking refers to questioning the plays that didn't work on Saturday and Sunday. In this case, the administration didn't even show up for the game. "Bumps in the road," "not optimal" -cliches don't cut it when people are dead and didn't have to be.

I can't remember where I heard this nasty little rumor, but I'll repeat it, as I've only seen it once before: Ambassador Stevens (and company?) was SUPPOSED to be kidnapped, to be held for exchange of high value Guantanamo prisioners. Obama would comply and look like a hero to get back our guy(s) and the Islamists would be appeased to get back some of theirs. O happy to accomodate his brethren. Things went horribly out of control.
Anyone else heard that? With this new info, the scenario seems ever more plausable.

I can imagine the discussion in the middle of this with Valerie Jarret, Axlerod, and Mrs. Clinton, with Obama just kind of hanging around.

“Looks bad, do you think they have a chance?” “I dunno, I guess we’ll see tomorrow.” “Should we mobilize forces to the area?” “No, too close to the election, we’re counting on being able to accuse Romney of being a war monger who will get us into another war. Even our press buddies couldn’t keep this bottled up if we send in military support.” “What will we say if we get the worst case?” “We’ll think of something. I’m going to bed.”

As of 4 minutes ago, only Fox has reported ANYTHING about this event. Only CBS reported that (paraphrased) "forces could not be assembled..." or somesuch garbage. Anyone not on Fox knows nothing of this story. I daresay no one who watches MTV even knows where Libya is. Crickets only on the MSM...

Woods and Doherty deserve the MOH just as did Shughart and Gordon in Somalia. There is nothing that can be considered more "active duty" than what they did - no matter who was paying them. They went to the sound of the guns to save fellow Americans.

#14, I saw that also. The site I saw it on was a bit of a nutjob site (that is they seemed to be ready to lend credibility to ideas that were off the deep end), that made me look at it somewhat skeptically. This makes me wonder if there might not be something to their story in this case. It wouldn't be the first time that someone leaked something to nutjobs so that when information got out from more credible sources no one would believe it.

I, just a plain conservative dummy with an evil mind, present this scenario just after this happened so Zero (the Won) could have his Carter Hostage moment, except with better results.

Later, articles also came out saying plans and preps were made for transfer of American hostages for the blind Sheik. All this sounds plausible as more info is being released.

What role did Petraus play as head of the CIA--was he one who told the Seals to stand down? He sure has been quiet in this matter.

Since the country generally rallies around the President in a time of war, I was at a loss to understand Obama's ludicrous attempt to explain away the Benghazi terrorist attack as merely a spontaneous protest against an obscure YouTube video. After all, this is the President whose motto is "Never let a crisis go to waste."

Now it is becoming clear. Obama watched the terrorist attack unfold in real time and was paralyzed. All he could think about was Jimmy Carter and how the Iran rescue debacle probably cost him his re-election.

After it was over, Obama was terrified that word would get out that he had done nothing to stop a terrorist attack or to rescue the Americans during the attack. That is the reason for the weeks long attempt claim that this was merely a spontaneous protest and not a terrorist attack.

At least Jimmy Carter attempted a rescue. Barry Obama only attempted a cover-up.

This information roll-out by folks in the know is making this whole thing worse by the minute. CIA told to stand-down. Air Force told to stand down. SoF and Delta Team told to stand down. Men told to fight to the death because the "President" needed his beauty rest before heading to Vegas.! BETRAYAL!!!!! TRAITORS!!!! MAY THEY NEVER KNOW ANY PEACE!!!!!

My God. 20,000 shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles missing in Libya and on their way to who knows where. 20,000. That's one for every person in the lower decks at any big-time Stadium. 20,000. How many commercial airliners are at risk, right now, today, because Odumma thought it was a good idea to create chaos in Libya? Answer: 20,000.

Off the wall question... Was the CIA team that died too close to the truth about that? Hundreds of known terrorists have been logged in as actual, physical White House visitors on official business with this administration. The Muslim Brotherhood are bro's with this "President." Did Odumma perhaps go to bed hoping these guys would buy it? Was the "spontaneous protest" excuse dreamed up as cover?

Like I said... off the wall questions. But no matter how speculative that was, the most important real question remains unanswered: Where are the missiles, O'Bambi? Where are the 20,000 missiles?

OP should have posted a warning with this one! Took two cig breaks just to try and read it! Got the same reaction reading this as watching the horror of the first 9/11! Where's the honor amongst the leadership in the CIA, DCI, Pentagon? During Watergate the AG resigned when given orders he felt were against the core values of this great country. We all supported Gen Petraeous during the war, but if he doesn't resign his CIA post over this and come clean, he is diminished in my mind. Gen Dempsey looked like a wet poodle sitting next to Panetta yesterday. Gen Ham, commander of AFRICOM which oversees Libya, got that job for carrying Zero's water heading a DoD effort to overturn DADT. Romney's gotta win and elevate the real generals like Odierno, Austin and other mem with "clangers". We need warfighters in the mold of Patton and retired Gen Honore (of Katrina relief) leading our man and women in uniform.

This is unbelievable, it TRIPLES the information on this, and the disgusting cowardice, malfeasance, and incompetentce by the entire regime.

Panetta is making an idiot of himself by his comments talking this down.

This had better be enough to completely defeat Obama and remove the secretaries of state, defense, and Petraeus at CIA. Otherwise they should all be impeached.

Looks like "Princeton Patreaus" has some people who are now to be known as "Deep Throat" in this scandal where Fox News becomes Woodward and Bernstein.

Expect the Sunday shows to be a "cover your rear" by both the major networks and those in senior Administration positions of power.

Panetta, as SecDef, comes across as just another weakling "talking the talk," as always unwilling to "walk the walk" as most of this malignant narcissistic generation has done ever since Viet Nam.

Obama should be cooked, tarred and feathered by next Thursday in the minds (hopefully) of a majority of voting Americans.

However, realize that his people and his lawyers are standing by to do whatever they can to bring the election to his (Obama-Mao's) favor.

Blood on the streets may be just around the corner...

Now I know why 30 people made it out alive. If Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty hadn't disobeyed orders, they most likely would have been killed also.
I have to wonder what the surviors were told what they could and couldn't say during the debriefing! What kind of threats were given to keep them from talking? Well, someone has talked!
Romney needs to and should bring this up! He needs to ask Obummer to explain how and why this happened!

No. 14 may have as plausible explanation as possible at this time. Administration had knowledge of previous attacks and pertinent information about increased activity leading up to 9-11-12. The ONLY conclusion one can draw from this latest from Fox News is the ambassador and his group was set up. The fact that Woods and Doherty and others who went into action meant fewer died than intended. I believe there are those in the CIA chain-of-command who need to be held criminally accountable for this debacle. How high this goes needs to be flushed out, but we already know The Once had real-time knowledge of what was going on. Benghazi will be with us for a good while.

#14, pair what you said with what I heard this morning that the SEAL member who was killed took it on himself to help (himself and one other as I remember) - it sure is possible that guys on the ground trying to do the right thing got in the way of a kidnapping attempt that the administration knew about and was planning to use to their political advantage. How awful if that is true.

What an October surprise this is. And our U.S. Ambassador, his staffer & two SEAL bodyguards had to fall on their swords for it. May you Rest In Peace & your family be comforted in the knowledge that you did not die in vain.

This administration expects Americans to die to keep the peace, so their radical leftist philosophies can continue to be forced on us. As far as I'm concerned, they made a cold, calculated decision -- even BEFORE these men were killed -- to let the chips fall where they may & blame it on video protests. They didn't want any skirmishes marring their "middle east victory" resume -- since they had nothing else to point to for reelection.

Amazing interview just now on FoxNews!!

The father of one of the dead men had a heartbreaking interview on air about those who allowed this to happen and caused the death of his son. Amazingly, he said he wishes well for those persons, but said they need to make some changes in their hearts and lives.

This is not on Fox's website yet, but it is sure to be oon, and will be played and replayed. Watch for it... this weekend will be exciting.

This is sure to make a huge impact on the election. And watching Romney just now on Fox makes me think this is the turning point. There is a difference in his delivery and a bravery for telling it just like it is. Keep up the prayers.

P.S. I will take great delight in imagining how the WH & all the MSM cable/tv stations are scrambling right now like ants who have had their nest exposed.

"What do we do now? How do we spin THIS??!!! Holy Crap!"

A few may even decide to follow whatever consciences they have left & jump from the Propaganda Ship.

I also believe our Special Ops are purposely telling the WH that they can't find the terrorists responsible for the attack. They aren't going to "elect Obama" this time around.

I heard that interview on Fox, and I'm heartsick for those families of the men who died. It's so hard to believe those military and government people could do that! They must be punished - and not maybe someday. Congress needs to act now.

0 has already lost the election. This will be a nail in his coffin. This will redefine 0bama as the lowest worm in the world. It also shows that Panetta is/was in the coverup mix, too. This involves the entire administration.

This will make many people sick. Conservatives already hate him. But, don't be surprised to see your demonRat neighbors out burning their 0bama signs, hats, and t-shirts.

Deliberate negligence resulting in deaths from a known threat is third degree murder. The 0bama regime is guilty of murder and is trying to cover it up.

FTA: “U.S. officials argue that there was a period of several hours when the fighting stopped before the mortars were fired at the annex, leading officials to believe the attack was over.”

THAT is your excuse?!?

“Yeah, we can see people with machine guns and RPG’s strafing the consulate. The personnel on the ground called for backup multiple times, but from our vantage point on the other side of the ocean it looked like maybe it was possibly over so we did nothing.”

These are the people running the military? Either this is a gross lie, or destructive incompetence.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Rory Reid Slams BLM as

Sheesh! Talk about a complete ingrate... Many people suspect that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) instigated an over the top paramilitary confrontation with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy at the behest of Senator Harry Reid especially since the new BLM director, Neil Kornze, was an aide to Reid. So how does Harry´s son, Rory Reid, thank the BLM rangers for putting their lives at risk over desert tortoises that are being euthanized by the Feds? Why, he slams them as "losers" on Las Vegas television station KSNV where Rory serves as a commentator from the left. You can see Reid in

Washington Elite Nutritionist Goes

After his Masters victory, pro golfer Bubba Watson celebrated with his family at a Waffle House. Pictures tweeted from there went viral. Waffle House appreciated the appreciation. What´s not to like about this great story? Apparently some self-appointed nanny state-loving guardians of nutrition like Katherine Tallmadge believe that Watson set a bad example for Americans by eating there. Oh, and with her powers of telepathy, she just knows that Watson´s a complete phony about what he really eats. She went after Watson on one of Neil Cavuto´s Fox programs yesterday, and in doing so caught talk show host Rush Limbaugh´s

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

CNN National Security Analyst:
Right More Deadly Than Al Qaeda

Without mentioning reports that the man accused of shooting up a Jewish Community Center over the weekend was apparently a fan of the left´s Max Blumenthal, CNN National Security Analyst Peter Bergen exploited the murders to claim the American Right is more deadly than jihadists. In fact, since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far-right wing ideologies, including white supremacists, anti-abortion extremists and anti-government militants, have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda´s ideology. According to a count by the New America Foundation, right wing extremists have killed 34 people in the

RAW VIDEO: Sen. Jeff Sessions sits for interview with WSFA 12 News Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee and arguably the leading intellectual force against amnesty in Congress, is coming out hard against a proposal backed by Majority Leader Eric Cantor to grant amnesty to illegal alien DREAMers who enlist in the military. “We are now in a period of very large troop reductions. The last thing this nation should be doing is to provide those few slots to persons who illegally entered the United States or who overstayed their visas while denying young Americans the

Bill O’Reilly to Conservative Guest:

It’s not every day that Bill O’Reilly accuses someone else of expressing “right-wing paranoia,” but that’s what happened Tuesday night when he faced off with Fox News contributor Monica Crowley over a proposed solution to the controversy over voter ID laws. O’Reilly began his show by giving a soft endorsement to an idea put forward by former President Bill Clinton that would add photos to social security cards, which American citizens are already required to have in their possession. “I am all for combating voter fraud by using voter I.D.,” Crowley told O’Reilly. “My issue with the social security card in particular

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Obama Generation Losing
Interest in Obama

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
