Explosive new allegations surrounding the Benghazi attack emerged this morning, reporting that sources have confirmed that three urgent requests for military assistance sent from the CIA annex were all denied; CIA operators were apparently told to “stand down” rather than respond when shots were heard around 9:40 p.m. on September 11.
Doherty and Woods, the two former Navy SEALS who were among the four Americans inevitably murdered, allegedly disobeyed orders from superiors to “stand down” in the wake of the attack. Despite being told by higher-ups not to respond, they purportedly decided to go to the main consulate building to help U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and others who were under siege.
While it was previously known that these men arrived on the scene to provide assistance, the alleged “stand down” orders and the repeatedly-denied requests for military assistance are new developments to a story that seems to be continuously unraveling.
When the attack first took form, Doherty and Woods were at a secure CIA annex only one mile away from the chaos unfolding at the compound. After the men heard shots fired, they promptly let the chain of command know about the situation on the ground. However, they were told to refrain from action. This same mandate was given to the men when they called a second time just one hour later to report that the dangerous situation was still unfolding at the consulate.
After being told twice to refrain from involvement, Woods, Doherty and two others ignored orders and made their way to the main compound, where violence was raging. At this point, the building was on fire and shots were exchanged, however they took action.
Woods, Doherty and at least two others ignored those orders and made their way to the Consulate which at that point was on fire….The quick reaction force from the CIA annex evacuated those who remained at the Consulate and Sean Smith, who had been killed in the initial attack. They could not find the ambassador and returned to the CIA annex at about midnight.
At that point, they called again for military support and help because they were taking fire at the CIA safe house, or annex. The request was denied. There were no communications problems at the annex, according those present at the compound. The team was in constant radio contact with their headquarters. In fact, at least one member of the team was on the roof of the annex manning a heavy machine gun when mortars were fired at the CIA compound. The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Specter gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights. The fighting at the CIA annex went on for more than four hours — enough time for any planes based in Sigonella Air base, just 480 miles away, to arrive. Two separate Tier One Special operations forces were told to wait, among them Delta Force operators.26 Replies

Well, then, you should be perfectly safe if the storm comes your way. Republicans don't drop the ball when lives are at stake. They won't let school buses sit empty when there are people still in the path of the storm. Just don't be stubborn and say you'd rather ride it out. Then whatever happens will be your own fault.

It’s about two different ideologies going forward. It’s the opportunity society against the dependency society. It’s the constitutional republic against a socialist egalitarian nanny state. Is it going to be are we empowering the entrepreneurial sense of the American people or are we going to be enslaved to a federal government? When I think about my father who fought in World War II, and my brother did in Vietnam and my nephew has had two tours of duty in Afghanistan, now are times when the American people are looking for convictive, principled leaders who will stand and fight for the next generation of Americans."

Our President thinks this is the American Woman mindset? What are we? Streetwalkers? Spoken like a bad boyfriend who can't keep his promises, Obama's basically saying,'I'll do all this stuff and take care of you, baby, if you do this for me.' It's wrong for Romney to seek women to work in his Cabinet, but it's okay for Obama to seek out women's [issues] voters like they're virgins at a frat party?"

No plan?

No plan in case of an attack on a U.S. embassy in the America-hating, radical-Islam azzhole of the world?

Not that the anniversary of September 11th would heighten concern or anything, but jeezis f**king Christ...NO F**KING PLAN?

Well, at least I can appreciate you finally admitting this completely inept administration has its head up its azz.

Someone wrote to me on Facebook yesterday, saying that it is wrong for Christians to promote voting Biblical values because of the Separation of Church and State. The writer spoke of being offended because I was coming against the sanctity of Separation of Church and State by asking people to pray to God before voting, and vote God’s values. People think that the original intent of SOCAS was to keep God’s Church from ruling the government. Actually, the opposite is true. Separation of Church and State is intended to prevent exactly what the government is trying to do currently. The government is attempting to muzzle the voice of God’s people by punishing the right to freedom of speech and freedom of religion." — Alveda King, pro-life advocate and conservative niece of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Older American[s] may remember the show 'Queen for a Day'. Each contestant would tell the audience her story of misery and misfortune. At the end of these tales of woe, the audience would vote to give the prize to the contestant who had the most miserable life. Obama’s record of the past 4 years is certainly a tale of woe. The tale includes unacceptably high unemployment; trillion dollar deficits, a 50% increase in the national debt to $16 trillion; anemic economic recovery with growth of less than 2%; a 5% reduction in median family income; a fiscal cliff about to send America into a double dip recession; a cover-up of the murder of America’s Libyan ambassador; a doubling of the price of gasoline; and increased medical insurance premiums which Obamacare was supposed to reduce but which Congress had to pass before they could read it. Yes, Obama would even beat former President Carter in the contest to become 'Queen for a Day.' President Obama should admit, although conditions are extremely tough, ultimately he was elected to solve problems, not make them worse and certainly not continuing his 2012 campaign to blame others as to why they still persist." — Armstrong Williams, conservative Republican commentator

Herman Cain mocked on Wednesday a new booklet that outlines President Barack Obama’s plans for a second term.'Coming out with a little booklet two weeks before the election and saying,‘Here’s what I’m gonna do in the next [four years]’ is an insult to the American people,' Cain said on Fox News’s 'Fox & Friends.''What have you been doing in the last four years? The plan for the last four years is the same as the plan for the next four years: spend spend spend. That’s all that’s in the little blue book.'"

West told senior citizens on Tuesday that he sent soldiers into battle with bayonets in Iraq.'When I was a battalion commander, we did still issue bayonets to our troops when we deployed to Iraq in 2003,' West told the 100 seniors in Stuart, Fla., The Washington Post reports.'In 2001, Special Forces soldiers were on horseback riding with the Northern Alliance to fight against the Taliban. So, obviously, we have a president who does not understand the full capabilities and capacities and what we do in the United States military.'"

You pointed out exactly the incompetence of the Obama admin.

Their lame claim is they did not have a readiness plan to rescue personal if the situation indicated such a need. What the hell? That is totally INCOMPETENT

McCain is attacking them right now for this very ISSUE

Dumb Dave thinks Obama's incompetence is a defense against Obama's incompetence ...now that is dumbazz
