Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that an urgent request from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. consulate and subsequent attack several hours later on the annex itself was denied by the CIA chain of command — who also told the CIA operators twice to “stand down” rather than help the ambassador’s team when shots were heard at approximately 9:40 p.m. in Benghazi on Sept. 11.
You can’t be serious.
As I noted a few days ago it appears that our “purpose” in maintaining that “safe house” in Libya was that we had thousands of MANPADs — man-totable anti-aircraft missiles — “loose” over there, and were trying to find them and basically buy them back (read: bribery.) Therefore, we knew damn well that the so-called “annex” in question was a high-value target to anyone who had a stick in their ass about America, as it contained both weapons and lots of money — two commodities in high demand in that part of the world.
At least three men, including two now-dead ones, ignored the order to stand down and attempted to defend the consulate. They died defending American soil despite orders to not do so. Worse, during the attempted defense they managed to get a laser designator on the people firing on the annex and yet they couldn’t get anyone to put ordnance on that location.
So exactly who refused help?
It is looking increasingly likely that the person responsible for this is President Obama himself, personally.
Breaking news on Benghazi: the CIA spokesman, presumably at the direction of CIA director David Petraeus, has put out this statement: “No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate. ”
But clearly, someone did issue a “Stand Down” order (that was ignored.) Who was it?
There’s only one person left: President Obama himself.
Facts are funny thing — they eventually lead to inescapable conclusions, no matter how hard you’d wish they didn’t, as potential explanations for various events are examined and discarded.
It now appears that we have a President who not only intentionally put our men and women in harm’s way without appropriate defensive measures but when they came under attack he literally ordered them to die rather than defend them.
Are we as American going to sit for this outrage or will we call it what it is?
