CIA: We Didn’t Ask for Help
During Benghazi Attack

Daily Beast, by Eli Lake

Original Article

Posted By:LOL Thomas, 11/15/2012 9:51:54 AM

The agency’s acting director will tell Congress today that agents on the ground the night Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed never requested military assistance, Eli Lake reports. When the CIA’s acting director, Michael Morell, testifies Thursday before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, he is expected to say that the agency never requested Europe-based special operations teams, specialized Marine platoons, or armed drones on the night of the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi, Libya, according to a senior U.S. intelligence official. The disclosure may put an end to one line of inquiry into the Benghazi affair about why

The cover up continues.

When you are being shot at it is normal to call for back-up.

They are going to tell us that Navy SEALS are too stupid to call for back-up??

OK, all former and current military, tell us if you believe this bowl of BS.

The State department was the responsible agency when it came to providing protection for the ambassador and his staff. But no one is asking Hillary about it - she is on a wine tasting trip to australia, following up on her women´s
issues conference in south america.
The CIA is a covert agency. they would not want to call in the U.S. military to show their operations. The American embassy, often entangled with CIA operatives, is not a secret, covert agency.
Broadwell and the Kelley twins are mere distractions.

Talk about parsing and the press letting them get by with it! Read carefully, the statements do not say the CIA did not ask for help, they say the CIA did not ask for "Europe-based special operations teams, specialized Marine platoons, or armed drones". Begs for a follow up!

silly question, probably irrelevant, but why do "senior military officers" need anyone planning parties for them?

Reminds me of an air force vet relative (in his late 20s now) refering to these brass as "pinkie-ringed."

Anyway, there is an elaborate cover-up going on for sure. I mis-read #1´s last phrase as, "tell us if you believe these bowels of BS." honest. Fits, though.

Not calling for aid is just as outrageous and everyone in the chain of command should be tried for dereliction.

Who told the Navy Seals at the Annex to stand down for the first twenty to thirty minutes. When the Seals left the embassy to go back to the Annex, were they part of CIA or Department of Defense? Because they certainly did call for help. What government organizations heard those calls and ordered their teams to stand down? What moron thinks this parsing of the events is going to satisfy?

Their security force was gutted, their repeated requests for additional security staff denied, their facilities were below standards, the security force they were provided was by locals who bugged out, they were under attack by a superior number of hostiles, they were out-armed, and their superiors who are watching the battle unfold in real time did not call for rescue? And the answer we are to believe is that they did not call for help and we can all just move on? Yeah, that doesn´t stink at all./s

Fine, then join the crowd for trail on manslaughter charges. Before you do that though, you are fired and all pension/benefits are stripped for gross incompetence. BTW, it will be a military trial.

That would be the way it could happen... if this were the United States of about 1959.

Hmmmmm- RE: The Drone. What about the video´s in the media showing the beginning of the attack while the jihadists were milling around outside of the building prior to setting it on fire. Which Drone relayed those pics and Ms. Lamb from State already testified they watched in real time. Somethings just don´t ad up.

Abrupt retirement of Gen Carter Ham, AFRICOM Commander at the time of the 9/11 Benghazi attack attributed to family issue is bizarre on its face. It maybe so, but for a 4 Star General to disappear all of a sudden well-short of his tour should be explored further. The question would be why? Was he sending help to Libya and was told to stand down by Panneta, but refused? And what happened to Rear ADM Gaouette, Battle Group Commander of the Stennis? Why was he unceremoniously relieved in the middle of the deployment? So many questions, few answers.

Egypt´s electoral commission said Sunday the presidential election will take place on May 26 and 27, 10 months after the army overthrew Islamist leader Mohammed Morsi. The man who toppled him, now retired army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, is expected to win the vote easily as he rides a wave of popularity for removing the divisive president in July. (Snip) Meanwhile, three Hamas militants were arrested in Sinai by Egyptian security forces, suspected of planning to assassinate front-runner presidential candidate al-Sisi, Kuwaiti daily newspaper Al-Rai reported on Sunday. The three had crossed over to Sinai from

CAIRO - Three Hamas militants who infiltrated into Sinai from Gaza were arrested on suspicion of conspiring to assassinate former Egyptian defense minister Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who is running for president, according to Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai. The three carried a coded letter with instructions to execute the assassination, passed by a senior Muslim Brotherhood official who escaped to Gaza. (Snip) The officials warned of a troubling development taking place among the al-Qaeda-linked organizations already inside Egypt. They said there is information the militant groups are forming a de facto chain of command, with alarming coordination between

Egyptian army chief Field Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has recently intensified contact with the Russian Defense Ministry in order to expedite the completion of an arms deal. According to senior Egyptian sources that the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai quoted in a report on Wednesday, the deal with Russia includes advanced aircraft, monitoring equipment and other sophisticated weapons that would be used to fight terrorism emanating from Sinai. (Snip) The delay continues an ongoing US partial aid and weapons freeze that has largely been seen as punishment for Sisi’s military coup and crackdown on former president Mohamed Morsi and his

An Egyptian court on Sunday set Sunday for the resumption of the trial of ousted president Mohamed Morsi and 14 co-defendants for allegedly inciting the murder of demonstrators outside Cairo´s Ittihadiya presidential palace in late 2012, a judicial source said Tuesday. According to the source, the decision came one day after the same court turned down a request for the recusal of the presiding judges in the case. (Snip) Morsi and his 14 co-defendants – seven of whom are being tried in absentia – are charged with inciting the murder of opposition demonstrators during clashes between pro- and anti-Morsi

This morning, Lois Lerner again pleaded the Fifth, refusing to answer any of Chairman Darrell Issa’s questions.  After a few minutes of Lerner’s repetitive non-response, Issa adjourned the hearing, so we don’t know if the committee planned to address this particular issue. (Snip) During the normal workweek, former IRS director Lois Lerner may have been in charge of delaying tax-exempt applications for conservative groups, but on a Sunday it appears that she was fast-tracking, approving and backdating an application for an organization led by an alien resident with ties to terrorists. The organization is the Barack

Cairo - An Egyptian court will begin hearing testimonies in the murder trial of deposed Islamist president Mohamed Morsi from Wednesday, when a former top military officer will give evidence. [Snip] Morsi was present in the court, inside a soundproof glass dock to prevent him from interrupting proceedings with defiant outbursts, as he had done in previous hearings. Morsi and 14 co-defendants, including former aides, are accused of inciting the killing of opposition activists outside the presidential palace in December 2012, an incident that hastened his overthrow by the military almost seven months later.

Morsy ouster brings $8 billion

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), apparently pleased with the ouster of the former President Mohamed Morsy, have approved $8 billion in aid to Egypt on Tuesday. The Saudi funds comprise a $2 billion central bank deposit, $2 billion in energy products, and $1 billion in cash, the Saudi Finance Minister Ibrahim Alassaf told Reuters. (Snip) The rise of Mohamed Morsy´s Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt since 2011 has unsettled most Gulf Arab states, including the UAE, which feared it would embolden Islamists at home. Morsy became president a year ago in Egypt´s first freely contested election.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
