Former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods was part of a small team who was at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When he and others heard the shots fired, they informed their higher-ups at the annex to tell them what they were hearing and requested permission to go to the consulate and help out. They were told to “stand down,” according to sources familiar with the exchange. Soon after, they were again told to “stand down.”

Woods and at least two others ignored those orders and made their way to the consulate which at that point was on fire. Shots were exchanged. The rescue team 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 Spectre 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. Fox News has also learned that two separate Tier One Special operations forces were told to wait, among them Delta Force operators.

I am disgusted and heartbroken at the same time. How anyone could vote for Obama and any of his gang after the Benghazi terrorist murders of 4 Americans...makes me want to puke. I hope Obama had a real good time with Jay Z and Beyonce partying in Vegas and counting the cash for his campaign while 4 American families were being notified of their loved ones murders.

Please, for our country's sake vote for Romney. Do not give Obama 4 more years. America, land of the free, will no longer exist if Obama gets re-elected.

Like General Colin Powell, I'm voting for Obama/Bidden to continue to lead our great nation into the 21st century. What's sickening is the wingnuts using four brave American's lives in a futile effort to score political points.

Score political points? 4 Americans murdered by terrorists and our president parties in Vegas with two of the richest 1%er's in our country and you can't believe Americans are talking about this? You think the soldiers and their families are using this as a political tool? Hell no, you POS, they know that it could have easily been them getting left behind to die. You are so used to these things being swept under the rug by Obama and the news media it pisses you off that Americans have said enough is enough. This one doesn't get swept under the rug like Brian Terry's murder was! The White House leaks were swept under the rug. You idiots have made excuses for Obama for 4 years but enough is enough. Americans are going to stand up and step up for the families of Sean Smith and Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods and Ambassador Stevens. Soldiers would never leave a man behind and they will not support a president who does!

Your screen name is Veteran but you are no Veteran.

I know you libs don't like Fox news but they are the only ones that think our Navy Seals and ambassador being murdered are newsworthy events. It seems the Obama media has no problem covering Jay z and Beyonce raising money for the the messiah but ignore the deaths of these men. What the dad says is the truth just the same

Obama bragged and has demanded that he get credit for killing Bin Laden. He boasts of his kill with every campaign speech he gives. If the Commander in Chief gets credit for killing Bin Laden then he also has to take responsibility for the terrorist murders of 4 American citizens even though partying with rich rappers in Vegas. Obama doesn't get to pick and choose which situations he wants to play like he is Commander in Chief.

Obama is outta here in a few months so he can go Hollywood. He will fit in perfectly. Oorah!!!!!!

The House of Representative's Committee on Oversight and Government Reform is currently conducting an investigation into the Benghazi attacks. The FBI is currently conducting their own investigation. The Senate's Homeland Security Panel is scheduled to start their investigation Nov 15th. The State Department's Accountability Review Board headed by retired ambassador Thomas Pickering is scheduled to convene soon and will release results of their investigation two months after their first meeting.

We don't need Sean Hannity jumping to conclusions on FOX news in order to boost his ratings and whip the wingnuts into a frenzy.

But then again, you probably don't believe General Colin Powell, General Wesley Clark, Major General Paul Eaton or Admiral John Nathman are veterans either because they support President Obama.

Veteran, pay no attenton to these wingnuts. They have such an intense personal hatred for Obama that they'd automatically blame a flat tire on the man. As much as they claim to love and respect the armed forces, it seems they only apprecate those veterans who support Romney and the Republican war machine.

Obama doesn't cause any flats. It's the crazy old man making funny faces that goes around slashing tires.

Would that be like the F&F investigation? Obama's cronies investigating themselves? Would that be like the White House leaks investigation? Would that be like the investigation of Brian Terry's murder? Executive Privilege again? All these Obama' investigations seem to never get investigated by any one but Obama's buddies. I guess this investigation will linger on until after the election, right? How convenient for Obama and the crooked democrats. Great timing, huh? Obama wasted no time planting the seed in Americans minds about that damn video and he wasted no time claiming there was a mob outside the Embassy but noooooooooooow he wants to wait until he is sure of what went on before he comments about it. Well, we all know that Obama's video crap and mob excuse were just more lies to the American people and lies to the victims families...all to get himself a few more votes. That's your president, how proud you must be! You may be a veteran but it's not from any branch of the United States Armed Forces. What country are you from? I'd hate to have you by my side in battle. You are all for leaving a man behind. You seem to even brag a little at times at what Obama has done.

You lie. That's your "internet wannabe" background. You may be a big superman soldier on the internet (we can all be whoever and whatever we want to be on here)but you were never a soldier. Are you a member of that church with the crazy people that protests the soldiers funerals? Hmmmm....

Americans discussing the horrible way an Ambassador of the United States of America was left to die and discussing our president caring so little about terrorists killing American citizens that he went to Vegas to grab some quick campaign cash from Hollywood's richest 1% power couple and partied until the wee hours of the Vegas morning and then knowingly lies to even American citizen about the video and the mob and then makes Hilary Clinton be the fall guy to save his own ass at election time...is scoring political points in your opinion?

You're right. We should all be fixated on the Big Bird march on November 3rd. Let's keep Obama's and the democrats highest priorities right up there where they belong. That's the political points that we need to be worried about scoring, right? Eff you and the democrat jack ass you rode in on pal!

You can name off Obama supporters but do these heroes names mean anything to you...Chris Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty? Or do you just have Big Bird on your mind? You are vile and disgusting.

He wants our military best destroyed so his kind can take over this poor stupid country we have became. I am ashamed to be called an american when things have gotten this bad then we have ignorant people in this country wanting this to continue??????????

I understand your feelings. Those we have on here commenting the way they do is hard for us to read. The so-called veteran on here is so unlike any we know. We must all make sure we head for the polls Nov 6, so we can get our Nation on the way back again.
