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. ” –William KristolGeneral David Petraeus, Director of the CIA claims that no one in CIA headquarters told CIA agents on the ground on that tragic 11-year anniversary of September 11, 2001, a day when four U.S. consulate workers were murdered in a six-hour fire fight to “Stand Down. (see story)
Hillary Rodham Clinton says that she asked for more security to go to Benghazi, but was denied by the president. Obama said no. (see story)
So Mr. President you said in the 3rd presidential debate, “I’m the President” the responsibility ultimately is mine, that being the case who gave the order for CIA operatives on the ground during a terrorist attack on a United States Embassy to “Stand Down”? (see 5:38min video)
CIA spox: "No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate. ”— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) October 26, 2012Jake Tapper reports that General Petraeus denies giving the order to “Stand Down.” Gen. Petraeus states no one in the CIA did. (see article)
Hillary Clinton released information that she in fact attempted to help by requesting additional security but was rebuked by you Mr. Obama.
So, just who watched the six-hour fire fight that was transmitted via drones to the White house situation room, the CIA and other government agencies. Who made the decision to watch in “real-time” as the group of you did that watched SEAL team 6 kill Osama bin Laden?
Who told Former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty to stand down, an order they heroically disobeyed. Those heroes ultimately gave their lives attempting to protect the United States of America.
Mr. President who told CIA operatives there on the ground to stand down, who denied increased security to the U.S. consulate and who prevented rescue contingencies in the region from deploying to help Americans under fire, who?
And when we determine who that person is, will he please stop campaigning for an undeserved second term and please Mr. president will he just “Stand Down!”
