It was all so apparent to any one who understands English who did what at the Benghazi massacre. Who do you think ordered the military to stand down, twice? That order can only come from the President.
Think again, buddy.
"There were no orders to anybody to stand down in providing support," said CIA officials.

According to the official, upon learning of the attack at the consulate, the security team at the annex responded "as quickly and effectively as possible." The official described how the security team tried to rally additional support from local Libyan forces and heavier weapons, but that when that could not be accomplished "within minutes" they moved out to the compound. The official called the security team "genuine heroes" who risked their lives to save those at the compound.

According to the new timeline the annex received a call at 9:40 p.m. local time that the consulate was coming under attack. A team of six CIA security operatives left the annex for the mission within 25 minutes of that call.

there were claims that people were told to stand down but no proof of that.
the second rescue team was told to stand down in Tripoli as the first team already had the job done.
you need to be smart enough to understand what it is you have read...
The first team was told to stand down. Quit lying, time to give it up.

if you had real proof of that, you would have already posted it. no one was ever told to stand down.

no, no he doesn't. and that seems to be why he was demoted.

the second team in Tripoli was told to stand down because the first team had already secured the survivors. no one else was ever told to stand down. again, who gave this order? you on one post say the WH did nothing but go to bed, on the next post you say they were giving orders to specific units to stand down. you can';t even get your won bullshit straight...

try parroting smarter people, or at least try to apply one iota of logic to what they tell you to parrot...

Hicks: The Libyan military agreed to fly their C&#8209;130 to Benghazi and carry additional personnel to Benghazi as reinforcements. Because we at that time ó at that time, the third attack, the mortar attack at 5:15, had not yet occurred, if I remember correctly.


"Hicks: So Lieutenant Colonel Gibson, who is the SOCAFRICA commander, his team, you know, they were on their way to the vehicles to go to the airport to get on the C&#8209;130 when he got a phone call from SOCAFRICA which said, you canít go now, you donít have authority to go now. And so they missed the flight".

Q: What was the rationale that you were given that they couldn't go, ultimately?

"Hicks: I guess they just didn't have the right authority from the right level.Ē

I'm sure they didn't have the "Authority" to go to Germany or Afghanistan either.

So..... when they told to "stand down"?

And by who.

Just because FAUX uses Rannity's "opinion" as "news", doesn't make it "fact".

Poor teabagger.

Liberals are so much fun, because they know nothing. It is like trying to converse with a bowling ball. They don't read newspapers. They only look at liberal news programs. Mostly they just talk to each other.

that may be true, but what does that have to do with the info I have given you about how wrong your posts are? nothing about me is liberal. none of my facts are from liberal sites.

you do not converse. you throw out proven false statements and then run away when they are shown to you to be false.
