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.

According to Good Morning America´s Linzie Janis, a CEO who made a donation in opposition to gay marriage is the same as the hateful members of Westboro Baptist. On Friday, Janis reported on Brendan Eich, the former head of the tech company Mozilla. Eich was ousted after liberal groups found out that in 2008 he made a $1000 donation to support Proposition 8 in California. As Janis spoke about the six-year-old donation, video footage of Westboro Baptist protesters with "God hates f***" and "soldiers die 4 *** marriage" signs appeared on-screen. [See video below.

From the Philadelphia Inquirer: One teacher calls it the "new normal" for southwest Philadelphia´s Bartram High School: a massive brawl in the cafeteria, where students punched and stomped each other, and even attacked school police; firecrackers set off in the building; and the student who fractured the skull of a "conflict resolution specialist" is once again roaming the halls, just two weeks after the attack. Insiders told the newspaper, the larger problem at the 1,100-student school "is the continued culture of chaos and disregard for authority." According to the newspaper, four additional Philadelphia and school police officers will be at the school

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

The number of major federal regulations issued in the first five years of the Obama administration was 153.2% higher than during the first five years of the Bush administration, according to data from the Heritage Foundation. “In the first five years of President Obama’s Administration, 157 major federal regulations were issued. By comparison, only 62 major federal regulations were issued during the first five years of the George W.

How do you get from 5 million Obamacare enrollees to 7.1 million Obamacare enrollees in two weeks? You start the applications yourself. Health and Human Services was mailing out letters notifying certain Americans that they had already started a healthcare coverage application on their behalf. HHS had started the applications for them. The Shark Tank reported: News of the HHS letter was first mentioned by a listener of the popular “Daybreak with Drew Steele” Show on Fox 92.5, which is out of Fort Myers, Florida. After his radio show concluded, another listener emailed Steele telling him about receiving the same

Finally, someone has come up with a way to settle the debate over climate change: Put the people on the wrong side of the argument in cages. A writer for the website Gawker recently penned a self-described “rant” on the pressing need to arrest, charge, and imprison people who “deny” global warming. In fairness, Adam Weinstein doesn’t want mass arrests. (Besides, in a country where only 44 percent of Americans say there is “solid evidence” of global warming and it’s mostly due to human activity, you can’t round up every dissenter.) Fact-checking scientists are spared. So is “the man on the

More than a dozen Republican lawmakers are pushing the Environmental Protection Agency to reconsider asserting regulatory authority over streams and wetlands amid intense backlash from farm groups over the agency´s proposed water rule. In a letter Thursday, the GOP senators faulted the EPA for announcing a proposed rule last week before the government´s peer-reviewed scientific assessment was fully complete. They are calling on the government to withdraw the rule or give the public six months to review it, rather than the three months being provided. The senators´ move puts them among several groups -- from farmers and land developers to

U.S. employers added jobs at a solid pace in March in the latest sign that the economy is rebounding from a weak stretch brought on by a harsh winter. The Labor Department says employers added 192,000 jobs, slightly below February´s total of 197,000. Employers also added a combined 37,000 more jobs in February and January than previously estimated. The unemployment rate was unchanged at 6.7 percent. But a half-million Americans started looking for work last month, and most of them found jobs. The increase in job-seekers is a sign that they are more optimistic about their prospects. March´s job gain

Ex-CIA boss Morell gives unorthodox
reasons for omitting key Benghazi details

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

SAN DIEGO – Hillary Clinton cancelled her upcoming visit to San Diego in the midst of a planned protest. Clinton will be the keynote speaker for the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on April 11. She was originally going to deliver the speech in person, but will now be seen by satellite. The three day event will be being held at the San Diego Convention Center with 700 people expected to attend.

Immigration reform advocates are fond of citing broad support for their cause. But in fact the coalition behind the Senate Gang of Eight comprehensive reform bill is fragile and loosely cobbled together. How could Big Labor and the Chamber of Commerce and the tech world and Big Agriculture all unite behind one bill? Very tentatively. It wouldn´t take much to break the coalition apart. And if that happens, the effort to enact comprehensive immigration reform could blow up, not just for the moment, but for some time to come. And there are signs that is exactly what is occurring now.

Imagine going to work one day only to be, in effect, fired -- not because of anything you did or didn’t do at your job, but because of something you did in your personal life. Something religious. Or maybe, something political.(snip)That’s exactly what happened to Brendan Eich, a highly-respected tech guru in Silicon Valley and co-founder of Mozilla Corporation, after he was appointed CEO in late March. In less than a week, he was forced out of this position for no reason other than that he had a made a $1000 contribution to the Prop 8 initiative in 2008. His

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church.

A senior CIA official has died in an apparent suicide this week from injuries sustained after jumping off a building in northern Virginia, according to sources close to the CIA. CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va. “We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

And what do you feel was unfinished, and maybe have another crack at one day?” Here are a few excerpts from her response: ”Look, I really see my role as Secretary, in fact leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race.

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

It doesn’t matter if he, an African-American, gets called “obroni,” the local word for white person, in the streets, or if some of his family can’t quite figure out what he’s doing in this West African nation so far from his roots in North Carolina.

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, who led all national politicians last year with 26 appearances over 12 months. Romney has
