    CIA agents in Benghazi twice asked for permission to help Ambassador Chris Stevens as bullets​



    By: James Nye

    It has been claimed that CIA agents on the ground during the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi twice asked for permission to help Ambassador Chris Stevens and twice were told to stand down.

    Furthermore sources present during the deadly six-hour assault have said that a desperate last request for military assistance once the CIA themselves came under attack was denied, even though elite counter-terrorism units were only two hours away.

    Not only that, when General Ham and Admiral Gouette wanted to send help, they were replaced. I want to know who deliberately and willfully let those men die. There were three scandals:
    1. Sending them into danger w/o adequate protection
    2. Deliberately letting them die. watching live video from a drone, and hearing phone calls for 7-hours
    3. Lying about the terror attack by AQ to the public and trying to blame Petraeus & the CIA (intel was good, Clapper et.al fucked it up)

    Obama denied the request for help, went to bed, went to a fundraiser the next day, then lied that it was because of a video

    It's only a few dead Americans from a terrorist attack, what's the big deal?

    So what if Obama lied about it?

    Well except the leftist press we have won't report it and won't follow it. It will go nowhere cause the press supports Obama.

    It appears that only you and I are aware of the fact that these career line officers were relieved of duty for refusing to recal their rescue attempts. I'd like to know who the pilots were that the recall orsders were sent to while emroute to give assistance. Was Spooky recalled and was and a F-18 recalled? Why? Who gave the orders? Was it Panetta or higher, like Oblamer?
