    Obama did not deny requests for help in Benghazi:
    Aide

    Fox News Channel reported Friday that American officials in the compound repeatedly asked for military help during the assault but were rebuffed by CIA higher-ups. At a press briefing one day earlier, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, asked why there had not been a quicker, more forceful response to the assault, complained of "Monday-morning quarterbacking." Panetta said he and top military commanders had judged it too dangerous to send troops to the eastern Libyan city without a clearer picture of events on the ground.

    But Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol, in a post published Friday, doubted Panetta's explanation and said the fault must lie with Obama himself. "Would the secretary of defense make such a decision on his own? No," Kristol wrote. "It would have been a presidential decision."

    "He's wrong," said Vietor.

    Logistics. Firstly, there was no way of knowing exactly what was going on and secondly, if they did, no way to get forces there in time.

    Nobody from our government lifted a finger
    to save those people.The one who did disregarded
    an order to stand down and he gave his life.

    This will haunt Obama's legacy...

    He saved GM
    He killed Bin Laden
    And he let our people die in Benghazi...
    Because he didn't want to upset anybody over there.
