Figures a commie punk like you would laugh at such a matter.
There were all kinds of resources and even lasers honed in on the terrorist mortor positions, yet the slime (Obama for sure) at the White House said stand down.
His chain of command broke down and his orders were ignored by people on the ground who went in to help anyways, regardless of Obama's order.
People died because of the punk Obama's incompetence before and during this 7 hour attack. Now the Teleprompter Stooge is lying, claiming ignorance. Bull$hit.
Go ahead and laugh you anti-American retard.

Doh! The attack last for 7 hours.
Which attack and who said that?

Everyone seems to be in agreement that the attack on the consulate was brief and consisted of some small arms fire followed by some real fire created by diesel fuel__much of it simply poured through the open windows and ignited.

Later, some are saying six hours later there was another attack a mile or so away at what was first described as an annex, later a safe house and finally a CIA outpost. How long the second attack lasted is unconfirmed and likely never will be for the CIA lies about everything__kinda like you do.

I should mention again that covert CIA outposts do not fall under diplomatic agreements and that the US would need to have permission from the Libyan government to use our military to defend such an outpost. Should also add that people like Doherty and Wood are paid enormous amounts of money for their "private" services.

The CIA doesn't report to the State Department and the operatives don't report to anyone in the official chain of command__that's why they call them contractors__clever huh?

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ...
10/26/2012 - 11:50am EDT ...

Sandy is a category one storm now ... but PLEASE do not let it deceive you. While the news outlets were downplaying Isaac for parts of the Gulf Coast, here at The Weather Space.com it was stressed that it would be worse due to other factors like surge and rainfall (flooding) potential ... regardless of "wind" ...


The category system is flawed ... Pressure and Flood numbers should be added in to adjust the category of the Hurricane to make the public more aware.

Hurricane Sandy will become a tropical storm as she widens more but this "width" and low pressure drop as she moves north will only make her stronger in the wave department. The lower the pressure and wider the system the higher the surge.

Not to mention the TWS-TFM model here shows her curving into the USA from the Southeast and this will be a "hybrid" storm where WV and parts of OH/VA/PA/NC sees snowfall while others near her landfall point get the rain.

Do NOT let your guard down when she becomes a tropical or extra-tropical storm ... All that energy from the low pressure has to account for something ... including the FULL MOON and HIGH TIDE ...

TWS-TFM will be updating the 12z suite in a couple hours. Stay tuned to TheWeatherSpace.com on the net or on Facebook as continued coverage of Sandy continues ...

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
