WASHINGTON U.S. intelligence officials offered a timeline Thursday of the CIA's response to the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, from its annex less than a mile from the diplomatic mission. U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the attack, which occurred on the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
A minute-by-minute look at how the security teams' response played out. All times are local for Benghazi.
- 9:40 p.m. The CIA annex receives its first call that the consulate has come under attack.
- Less than 25 minutes later, the security team leaves the annex en route to the consulate.
- Over the next 25 minutes, team members approach the compound and attempt to get heavy weapons. When they cannot secure heavy weapons, they make their way onto the compound itself in the face of enemy fire.
- 11:11 p.m. A Defense Department surveillance drone - an unarmed Predator - that had been requested arrives over the consulate compound.
- 11:30 p.m. All U.S. personnel have departed the consulate except for Stevens, who is missing. The vehicles come under fire as they leave the facility.
- Over the next 90 minutes, the CIA annex comes under sporadic fire from small arms and rocket-propelled grenades. The security team returns fire, dispersing the attackers.
- Around 1 a.m., a team of additional security personnel from Tripoli lands at the Benghazi airport and attempts to find a ride into town. Upon learning that Stevens is missing and that the situation at the CIA annex has calmed, the team focuses on locating Stevens and obtaining information about the security situation at the hospital.
- Before dawn, the team at the airport finally manages to secure transportation and armed escort. Having learned that Stevens is almost certainly dead and that the security situation at the hospital is uncertain, the team heads to the CIA annex to assist with the evacuation.
- 5:15 a.m. The team arrives at the CIA annex, with Libyan support, just before mortar rounds begin to hit the facility. Two security officers are killed when they take direct mortar fire while engaging the attackers. The attack lasts only 11 minutes before dissipating.
- Less than an hour later, a heavily armed Libyan military unit arrives at the CIA annex to help evacuate all U.S. personnel and takes them to the airport.

Whatever your point is, can you explain why the "Emergency Response Team" never deployed? Why 2 ex-seals had to disobey orders to go help? Even after Stevens, on the phone, said they were taking fire and needed help, no one was deployed.

First off, Christie is not endorsing Obama for president. Only a ignorant shithead, like yourself, would try to tie politics into a disaster of biblical proportions. It is obvious you have never dealt with that kind of environment. Bush isn't running for office and is over being the president. Bush hasn't been in command since January 20th, 2009. Move on dude. The failures that are occurring and unfolding now belong solely to your teammate. Christie is the governor of New Jersey and is doing his job while Obama is doing his, nothing more.
Truth be told come Tuesday.
Like your brother Miley Duq, media trying to put the spin on Christie being courteous to the president and commenting on obamas handling of sandy so far. Too bad for those slain in Benghazi that this kind of diligence wasn't applied to Lybia with equal force. Perhaps protecting American sovereignty or Americans isn't important to democrats. But I guess a fund raising event in Vegas is.
So the economy collapsing had zero to do with Clinton's actions, by your reasoning.
Yet you and your team always blame Clinton for the housing crisis.
You have double standards and contradict yourself on a regular basis. Your whole team does.
Learn to be consistent and maybe we will start thinking you know what you are talking about.

So you, like the good little socialist you are blame the child. Then while your socialist government is lying about on child left behind you are throwing them out the back door. Trying to cover up your failure. Good job thank you for proving my point.

First, you have to prove they were told to stand down.
But how am I to know the reasons the military acted or did not as as they did until someone tells us why? Why speculate on someone we do not know about? This is why it is best to let the investigation unfold before jumping to conclusions(guessing).

I do not even know what information to trust on this story. So much conflicting information comes in, it shows for certain, some of it is not true. So again, I seems logical to wait before pointing fingers.

According to the claims this article has, the seal team was not ordered to stand down.

It is clear, you are an extreme partisan of for the republican party. So your motives to point the finger at Obama for this is clearly due to your politics,nothing more.

I see you give Bush a full pass on everything that happened on 9/11/01. Thus further proving my point. Partisan.

<quoted text>"True, red blooded Americans." Who, like you are are opposed to the freedom of all? LOL, what a joke. I think the greatest indictment against Bush and his administration is that he doesn't dare show his face at your party's convention or make any statements or appearances on the current campaign trail for the Republican party or Mitt Romney. Why hasn't Romney used Bush to make his case like Obama has used Bill Clinton?
You will post some bullshit reply...but you know the real answer to that question. We all do. Even the man who nominated Mitt Romney (Chris Chistie) is coming out with the truth. Christie carries a lot of clout. We thank him for the Obama endorsement.
Bush hasn't been available since he has been building and giving away homes to the disabled veterans that have returned home from war. 33 more homes were just given away and another 25 are currently being built for another give away.

Of course this is not in the media because that is not news for the Obama news networks. Obama on the other hand is set to cut another 2 million jobs (military jobs included in that total) if he doesn't prevent a sequestration mandate.

On another note: Amber Lyon is currently blowing the whistle on CNN and how they are paid to report certain things and suppress stories that are damaging to the Obama administration.

Lets see if we can figure this out: FEMA- Federal Emergency Management Agency. The key word there is FEDERAL, meaning that it is financed and administered by the FEDERAL Government. Now if Romney transfers their function to the STATES, it will be financed and administered by the STATES and thereforem would be the elimination of FEMA. When Romney was asked if he would end FEMA he replied" Absolutely--" Republikans!!! Geese!!! They cannot see any further than the end of their nose. Everything more complicated than a bumper sticker slogan is incomprehensible to them. That is why republikan leaders oppose public education. Its easy to deceive the ignorant into voting against their own interests.

The government can fix the east coast and the gulf storm problem. Just put a warning label on them.

Waning if you live below sea level or on the beach you will drown and your property will be destroyed in a storm. All living in these areas should stop. If you cannot stop then when warned a week or more ahead of time, leave or at least buy food and a lifejacket.

If you do not leave and you do not prepare then you will find yourself begging to the government. You will get, what some government Bureaucratic decide you need. So does your life belong to you or the government?

I know you think I am that cartoon figure that fox news makes liberals out as, but I am not. I am more to the right than fox news thinks. I do not blame the child as much as I blame the parent for failing to teach the child to focus on the education.
But any extreme problems in a school could contribute to the problem. The question is, at what degree? I know you only see in black and white, so this part will be impossible for you to understand.

The failures I point to in education is not one of failing to teach someone basic literacy, but of not reaching levels of education that are competitive with other nations. The focus on science is gone.

I certainly am not one to believe fairy tales like Noah's ark and some magical being that controls things on earth.

I heard a hypothesis today that makes a lot of sense. It shows the relation of religious societies to that of societies that are less religious.
The less religious, the more successful in many respects. The less religious, the more one believes and thus excels in science.

The less religious, correlates to a lower rate of incarceration. Likely due to incarcerating for offences that are due to drug wars and prostitution.

The less religious, the better the health care availability.(Universal health care)

So the theory is, if a person sees less need for a god to be healthy and happy, he may become less religious.

Republikans can fix anything through government. North Carolina republikans just passed a law against the sea rising. That fixes everything with regards to coastal flooding.
Mitt Romney wants to eliminate FEMA and put his plan in place. All those people in NY and NJ whose homes were washed away can "Just borrow the money from your parents."

Nowhere in your timeline is the August 15th cable, marked “secret,” that was sent by the Benghazi mission and outlined both the threats and the insufficiencies to U.S. security in Libya. The mission called for an “emergency meeting” to discuss the rapidly eroding situation on the ground.

The cable went on to include “the location of approximately ten Islamist militias and AQ training camps within Benghazi.… these groups ran the spectrum from Islamist militias, such as the QRF Brigade and Ansar al-Sharia, to ‘Takfirist thugs.’”

This whole cover up is blowing up in the face of the Obama administration. Barry is a liar and a disgrace to the office in which he holds.

Library of Congress Congressional Research Service, an independent research group, has just found that tax breaks to the rich do not create ANY jobs. But the republikan house just voted that the report had to be taken out of circulation because it exposes their deception in putting additional tax burdens on the middle class.

Romney want to include the private sector in FEMA operations. Can't blame him. FEMA is a joke.

Within days after Katrina hit we sent 6 FREE (water and transportation cost were donated) tractor trailer loads of Zephyrhills bottled water to New Orleans only to be told by FEMA that we could not deliver the water because we did not go through the proper government channels.

FEMA is just another broken government system costing taxpayers a fortune.

Wake Up!! 5 trillion dollars in tax cuts to the wealthy when we already have to BORROW 40 cents of every dollar? That means we either have borrow 5 trilllion more dollars or raise taxes on someone. We have almost reached the upper limit of borrowing, so who do you think will have to pay the majority of that 5 trillion ? Hint: It isn't the rich and it can not be the poor because they don't have it. So what group is left? You got it!!! MIDDLE CLASS WORKERS.

I didn't read that in his post at all. I interpreted it as saying that everyone has the right to chose were to live BUT if you chose to live on the coast, below sea level, etc...then it's up to you to buy the private insurance to protect your investments and NOT to depend on the govt to bail your ass out in the case of an emergency. If YOU can't afford to protect your investment then YOU can't afford to live there!

We have common ground. We loaded up trucks, tools, food , water and men and went to La to help---for free . We were stopped by Blackwater agents and told to go back to the NC mountains. Dick Cheany had no bid contractors on site to fix all their problems. The contractors got the money,but most of the problems are still there even three years later.. In that case it was official corruption that rendered FEMA virtually useless.
