It is now known that the White House watched the Benghazi attack on a live video feed, as Americans asking for help which was within less than an hour away, were denied that help three times! In fact, they were told to stand down! Stand down from what! So that they could, as their counterparts in Washington were doing, watch Ambassador Stevens being slaughtered by, who we now know were, al Qaeda!
This is criminal!
EXCLUSIVE: CIA operators were denied request for help during Benghazi attack, sources say
video) 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 was denied by officials in 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 SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were part of a small team who were at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. Consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When they heard the shots fired, they radioed to inform their higher-ups 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. An hour later, they called again to headquarters and were again told to "stand down."
