Just another example of Fox News lies and gullible, mentally challenged Republicans sucking it up.

"While we're at it, let's put the finishing touches to yet another of the GOP's zombie scandals.

During closed-door testimony to the House Armed Services Committee on Wednesday, Lt. Col. S.E. Gibson, former commander of site security at our embassy in Tripoli, was asked about reports that he and his special forces team had been ordered to "stand down" and not attempt to rescue U.S. personnel under attack in Benghazi.

After Gibson's testimony, the committee released a short description of what he told them. It states:

"Contrary to news reports, Gibson was not ordered to “stand down” by higher command authorities in response to his understandable desire to lead a group of three other Special Forces soldiers to Benghazi. Rather, he was ordered to remain in Tripoli to defend Americans there in anticipation of possible additional attacks, and to assist the survivors as they returned from Benghazi. Gibson acknowledged that had he deployed to Benghazi he would have left Americans in Tripoli undefended. He also stated that in hindsight, he would not have been able to get to Benghazi in time to make a difference, and as it turned out his medic was needed to provide urgent assistance to survivors once they arrived in Tripoli."

As you may recall, Fox News was absolutely relentless in hyping the story of how U.S. forces had been ordered to "stand down" by a faithless, gutless Obama administration, allowing Ambassador Chris Stevens and others to die. Secret sources, special reports, screaming headlines and screaming pundits .... it got the full Fox treatment.

The story of Gibson's clear statement to the contrary -- a statement that the Republican-led Armed Services Committee apparently accepts as truth -- is contained in a four-paragraph version of an AP story buried deep in Fox's website."

So remember, Fox News is not actual or truthful news, it's just another arm of the worst political party in America (i.e., Rethuglicians).

I don't understand the difference between "stand down" and "do not respond".

Was there an attack in Tripoli? Did the guys who stayed behind prevent an attack in Tripoli?

I saw a timeline of the events in Bengazi weeks ago when this was a hot topic (before IRS, NAS, etc, etc.). It looked to me like help could have arrived before the two former Seals were killed.

Do you think it is possible that Gibson could have had just a little pressure on his to help him prepare his testimony? How about a lot of pressure?

Do you think it's possible Gibson simply told the truth?

Ltcol trying to make Col. Has happened many times before. His troops his superiors know and they will spread the word and his promotion will be hollow.

At this point he is more politician that military officer. IMO.

Oh, one other thing. There was a 50 man Marine unit at the embassy. Their duty was to protect the embassy. The Ltcol and his 4 special forces guys were just passing through. They were not attached to the embassy. They were attached to AFRICON.

Yeah, and in both cases the guys in Bengazi are hung out to dry......and die.

So.....like Hillary said, "What difference does it make"?

No. We know why they are running it. They are the only legit news agency around. CBS, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, and CNN, to an extent, are in the communist/socialist bag for the empty suit community organizer.

After tonights show I am even more convinced that we should hold a trial for Obama and Broom Hillary for dereliction of duty and then apply the appropriate punishment.
