Unreal: Navy SEALs Told Twice To Stand Down, To Not Help Consulate in Benghazi, And It Gets Worse

 

Now this is disturbing:

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.

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.”

What the what?

Why would that happen?  Why would they not send in people to help?

And if you think that’s bad, consider this.  They went anyway, pulled the people out, except for the ambassador, who they couldn’t find, and beat feet back to the CIA safe house, where they came under fire.

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.

Behold, the Spectre gunship:

There were two of these nearby.

They were not used.

Charles Woods has a good question. With all these resources on hand, who gave the order to let his son die:

Woods says he was told by military officials that the military could have “come above [the area] and completely carpeted area,” and therefore saved the officials in Benghazi, Libya. But that someone gave the command for the American military not to save the lives of the Americans under attack.

“When I heard, you know, that there’s a very good chance that the White House as well as other members of the military knew what was going on and obviously someone had to say, don’t go rescue them. Because every person in the military–their first response [would be], we’re going to go rescue them. We need to find out who it was that gave that command–do not rescue them.”

Mr. Most Transparent? Do you have an answer?

And no, you can’t blame Bush for this one.

    A Congressional Investigation To Be Determined ,
    After the Lection is OVER?”Is Not an Option” for After the Election!!!

    Feel Free to Send Your Own Faxes and Follow U[p with Phone Calls, For their 3:00 AM Call’s Ignored! We Have to DEMAND ACTION IMEDIATELY!

    My Fax to My State Representative and All of the Congressional House of Representatives, and Senate:

    “The proper office of a representative assembly is to watch and control the government.” – J.S. Mill

    I demand that you, a United States Representative, call for an official investigation into the events surrounding the September 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on our Libyan embassy.

    That Obama and his Administration would blatantly lie about this issue in unconscionable, especially since it cost for American lives.

    I, along with the American People, demand that your Chamber exercise its investigative power to discover the truth.

    Now, with the Denial of Resources, to DO THEIR JOB and Protect and Defend American Lives and Ambasador, Embassy Soveriegn Territory, Constitutional Responsibility Ignored, By Their Own Sworn Oath and Duty, WHY?

    As a citizen of the United States I am deeply angered about this administration’s handling, of the terror attack in Benghazi – specifically their deliberate attempt to mislead the American people.

    The American people deserve the truth right now – not after the election.

    With All the Lies and Cover-up of Critical timeline events, E-Mailed Directly to the White House Situation Room,
    And 400 Administration Individuals, The Abuse of the Office and Powers of the National Security Team,
    Secretary of State and Direct Representatives, White House Spokespersons and Manipulation of the Media,
    To Downplay the role they have Played to Further manipulate the Data, & 700,000.00 to fund Ad’s in Pakistan,
    To Push the Role of a Movie No One Has Seen. While Nothing Was Done to Protect and Defend our Ambassador,
    and his security Team While they Watched in Real Time from a Drone Flying over the Benghazi Residence and,
    Safe House annex?
    But It Was the Movie from a 14 min trailer is their Answer?

    Meanwhile the Congress is Not Informed, and Lied to by this Administration and Mr. Obama in real time! While He Goes off to Campaign on talk shows and the Families of the Slain Are Left in the Dark to this Date?

    Nixon was Implacable too for His Lies to the People and Congress, But No One Died! Now We Have Another Event, for the First time in 30 years One of Our Ambassadors is Murdered, and Add in Fast and Furious and the Deaths, of Our Border Patrol Agents, and Hundreds of Mexican Citizens’, and There is No Impeachment, and Still No One, In Congress with the Authority to Take Action? And Indict this Administration for High Crimes and Misdemeanors, at the Least?
    This is the Question WE THE PEOPLE are Asking!

    Who, What, Where, When and Why are the Questions to Ask All those in the Chain of Command the Administration, Sent out And Reported the False Scenarios, and Still Belittle the Relevance of The Internet to Influence or Credibility, Of the E-Mails they Received,
    But Hay,
    It’s OK for them to Blame a Video Portraying Muhammad for the Attack?

    Now Is The Time for All Good Men to Come to the Aid of Their Country, If We Can Find One in Congress I would, Guess they are Hiding Under their Desk’s and Resigning from Their Office to Avoid,
    Their Own Culpability For the Actions of and Inaction to Get the Subpoena’s and Force the Testimony UNDER OATH in Front of a Congressional, Investigation ASAP!
    That Means Immediately Before the Elections are Over!
    And Means Impeachment, Indictments, Prosecutions and Convictions Where Required By Law and the Both Houses, Congressional Rules and Procedures’ and Making War on the Constitution and Bill of Rights and Violation of them for All Involved.

    This IS, Why I am urging you to join me in calling for an immediate investigation, into the deadly terror attack and subsequent cover-up by this administration.

    Please know that I am monitoring your actions on this issue.

    Kerry L. Marvin/USN/DAV/68-77. OATHKEEPER!

    Harry Truman as president said the buck stops here. It means that whoever gave the order to stand down was representing the president, so the blame is on obama. He should be tried for the murder of the persons that were killed! I’d love to be on the jury.

    Exactly why Obama needs to go. As Commander-in-Chief it was up to HIM to give the command order for the troops to go in. He DID NOT issue that command. He’s a TRAITOR.

    I fear Obama is trying to scrub the military of all who are not staunch followers. Then he can have a military much like in Cuba where the dictator is always right and nobody in power will be against him. Its the only way to get the military to attack its own country.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1313945233 Rick Sharon

    If there is any justice, one day Obama and the others in the “chain of command” will find themselves in a life threatening situation, begging and pleading for help, begging for protection, begging to be saved … and THEY will be ignored, left to fend for themselves.

    But, I expect it wouldn’t happen. Heros like Ty Woods would save them also. Lets hope THOSE heros receive the support they deserve, that Ty Woods was denied.

    The thought of this complete injustice by the WH (which I will assume gave the order to stand down), makes my stomach turn. I would want to know as well who gave what orders, which we know were ones that did NOT save these 4 American’s lives. Funny how they got all over Nixon for Watergate and no one died in that one, but 4 American’s died and our justice system could care less! Appalled is not even a strong enough word to use on my feelings about this situation!

    It only gets worse from here, hearing news reports that one of the Navy Seal’s on site was laser painting the source of the mortar fire because the military had an aircraft ready to fire on the position and neutralize the mortar attack. The seal was revealing his position by painting the target, but POTUS rescinded the order to fire and the seal was discovered and killed by the mortar emplacement he could have taken out by painting the target. This is criminal!

    Many are saying that Obama is a traitor for knowingly allowing his Muslim Brotherhood buddies to murder our people in Benghazi, but that is not entirely correct. Obama is far worse than any traitor. It is the people voting for him who are the traitors and those who would dilute the conservative vote with third party and writein.
