Benghazi: CIA operators were denied requestS for help during attack UPDATED

And I capitalize the “S” in requestS because there were more than one (emphasis added),

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.”

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.

And, it gets worse:
AC-130U Gunship was On-Scene in Benghazi, Obama Admin Refused to Let It Fire.

Gunships.

Q&O:

Let’s try this again … you had your people under attack, you had drones on site, you had a spec ops guy on the roof lasing the mortar team and Panetta claims they “didn’t know what was going on?”

That says a hell of a lot more about Panetta and Obama than anyone else. Anyone worth their salt goes for over kill, not “wait and see” in a situation like that. Situations like this are why you have contingency plans and units designated as Quick Reaction Forces (QRF). You can always recall your forces. And, if you give even a stinking whit about force protection you go in and secure the area and personnel who were under attack anyway.

Where was the Commander in Chief?

Meanwhile Crazy Joe Biden handles the situation with his characteristic tact.

UPDATE,
BLACKFIVE:

If that SEAL was actively “painting” a target; something was on station to engage!

One Response to “Benghazi: CIA operators were denied requestS for help during attack UPDATED”

  1. Paul Felix Schott Says:

    UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IS THE ONE NATION THAT ALL ON EARTH KNOW THAT UNITED WE STAND IN GOD WE TRUST AND FREEDOM FOR ALL TO HAVE AND READ THE LORD’S WORD FROM THE BIBLE.

    ONLY THE BLIND CANNOT SEE THIS MANY IN THE
    INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY TOLD WASHINGTON D.C. .. Israel told us it was
    coming long ago oh i am sorry obama refused to talk or meet with the
    Prime Minster of Israeli why ?

    After ISRAEL Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave the UN a speech showing a line that will not be crossed to all the world. Hillary Rod ham Clinton could not get to talk to ISRAEL’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Fast Enough.

    Be for this she said “Further talks with IRAN” on Monday. i would say she is saying the white house is talking to a nation that has said many times the USA is the enemy. That they feel us as a FOE showing hatred to us and Threatening us and other Nations Many Times.
    To not talk with are ALLIES make no sense at all. Hillary Rod ham Clinton must have been way too busy or too slow in the head. To See Right from wrong.

    Do not Be Mislead
    NEXT THE SUNDAY FUNNIES TO GO.

    Wolf In Sheep Skin.
    The LORD’s Word in the Bible tells all to beware of many
    that will be False Prophets.

    Even the Devil cannot fake or hide that he is not
    a Christian. The Devil will always lead you to HELL.

    Most all on Earth, know that there is but one GOD.
    The Prophets of Our Lord and GOD would not tell others to
    hurt or harm others or to sin. But the wicked will.

    So how can so many be blind to think a Christian, a Prophet
    or anyone that wants to go to Heaven would tell others to do harm to one or
    anyone. Or to sin or to keep THREATENING OTHERS Making many live in Terror.

    Read the Bible
    do good and Help others
    and Listen to are Lord not Wolfs in sheep skin. Or the
    Wicked.

    September 11 ,2001 the middle east party in the
    streets celebrating. Christian why do you think they would do any think
    different each and every September 11, . Only weak Leaders will let this happen.

    Do you really want to see oh hear of more Americans killed for sport from the wicked.
    This Nation Under GOD Needs Good Strong Christian Leaders.

    Do we want to be like many other countries like Norway Muslims Attack children in schools and Norway Muslims immigrate rape women even a 12 year old.

    And yes they are holding up signs in the middle east today saying the they are peaceful, RIGHT, most of them with a big smile on their face. and signs now that say ISLAM IS AT WAR WITH US.

    In Pakistan a young 15 year old girl “Malala Yousufzai” was shot in the head for just wanting to go to school woman have NO RIGHTS and can not go to school in many Muslim countries. Many of these Countries have let this kind of barbaric and savage behavior go on for Years doing little to stop it.

    September the wicked will always look to kill others Munich Germany 1972. 11 of the ISRAELI Olympic Athletes were killed by the wicked. Special Forces sent Air Mail to ten terrorist training PLO Bases in response. 200 died 11 for 200 you do the math. The wicked are at war with all that believe in Jesus Christ.

    Some will never Learn till it is too late.

    Shouldn’t the title Read the TERRORIST Growing Countries with leaders that refuse to let people read the Bible to get to know the Lord Jesus Christ, and if they do not get there way they are going to hurt someone.

    How long can the poor and needy listen to WICKED rich leaders that say do as I say yet they live like the wicked and rich, and they do not really care for others. They want to control others and yet they will not listen to the one and only one that can keep them out of hell

    .

    The Lord Jesus Christ.

    The United States of America may, or is looking into sanctions on N.I.O.C. National Iranian Oil Company that has ties with I.R.G. Iranian Revolutionary Guard and Looking To Seize All Foreign Banks that are dealing with N.I.O.C. For many of its group including its Former I.R.G. Chief Rezaei is Wanted By Interpol for murder and killing people around the world many with bombing.

    Ahmadinejad has spent over a half a million for the 100 plus people that traveled with him to N.Y. City to stay at the WARWICK Hotel for a few day stay. Was REZAEI ONE OF THEM?

    This is no secret to the Intelligent Community many in Ahmadinejad’s Revolutionary Guard has been doing wicked deeds for many years. That most all in the Intelligent Community know about.

    Do not worry it is a election year some leaders will act like they are going to do something about this, oh I am sorry only if they get re-elected, just what the world needs leaders that let the wicked laundry money thru World Banks around the world to kill anyone that gets in their way. Iran’s Leaders doing this for years it is their way of life they think it is good for them. Not when are LORD comes to Judge all.

    Help save the lost tell them to read the Lord’s word the Bible.

    Why let the Wicked in office in our Nation if they do not believe in GOD and the Bible vote them out of office.
