EXCLUSIVE: CIA operators were denied request for help during Benghazi attack, sources say

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 was denied by U.S. officials — 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.

EXCLUSIVE: CIA operators were denied request for help during Benghazi attack, sources say

To ALL of my friends, family and readers, this is the REGIME that has given our nation away and has caused the deaths of Americans, not only in Benghazi, but in the USA via Fast and Furious as well.

I am asking ALL of you, PLEASE share this post via any and all social media, email, instant messenger, whatever it takes. America MUST see this story and know the truth.

This entire EVIL administration must be removed; they must be subjected to the most intense scrutiny and then prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. They are, ALL, either directly or indirectly, guilty of MURDER!

Here is MORE from the original story:

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.

America, for the love of God, our families and this nation, please share this story with everyone you know, even hard-core libbers! They may be on the other side of the fence but they are NOT stupid, just severely misguided. Maybe THIS will open their eyes!

    It is getting much worse for Obama: AC-130U Gunship was on site over Benghazi

  2. Katie says:

    He denied them 3 times. Saint Peter denied that he knew Jesus 3 times. Coincidence?

    I will post this at Monkey in the Middle and quite a few other blogs.

    We’ve got to get rid of these traitors, then string the bastards up. (Please forgive my language, but if it was my son, you know.)

    • TexasFred says:

      Katie, your language is absolutely cool with me!! 😛

    • Right Handed Cowboy says:

      Hey Katie, I agree with Fred your language is straight forward and honest. It is what it is. Keep plugging away. We only have a few days left to boot this “BASTARD” and his cronies out of office.

  3. mrchuck says:

    Obama is wearing his MUSLIM wedding ring all the time now, and it would be almost impossible for him to authorize open killing of any Muslims.
    ALL the insurgents are muslim!
    His religious brethren will always come first!
    Not the USA he presently serves as President.
    Always MUSLIMS first says ALLAH.
    You, the American public can do something about this atrocity right now, if you only get off your butts and go vote for Republican Mitt Romney.
    Send this Allah arab loving Barak to Hawaii where he can live in his Hawaiian mansion that he just purchased!
    Get him off the Continent of the USA.

    Commander in Chief has absconded accountability now for a while. Sec. of State said buck stops here, or Bill says suck starts and ends here. Where is Petraeus, CIA man? I thought better of him?

    • Right Handed Cowboy says:

      General Petraeus will do right; he is first and foremost a SOLDIER. I talked earlier with Fred and discussed this issue at length. The GENERAL will toss Obama under the bus. I want to believe that. We all do. Obama must go.

      Woods ignored all orders to stand down and tried to save the ambassador.

      • the unit says:

        You’re right…we all do…and statement below Fred links says so. So sleepy going to Vegas next day is responsible. We know. When I asked…Petraeus statement was not out. Even then of course we know who was responsible. No excuse just because red phone on vibrate.

  5. Bloviating Zeppelin says:

    Will use this for my site as well.

    People HAVE TO KNOW what is happening in their nation and with this president.

    It is worsening with every day as more of the truth emerges grudgingly from government and various sources.


  6. TexasFred says:

    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. ”

    So who in the government did tell “anybody” not to help those in need? Someone decided not to send in military assets to help those Agency operators. Would the secretary of defense make such a decision on his own? No.

    It would have been a presidential decision. There was presumably a rationale for such a decision. What was it? When and why—and based on whose counsel obtained in what meetings or conversations—did President Obama decide against sending in military assets to help the Americans in need?

  7. Right Handed Cowboy says:

    Fred if the UNDECIDED still can’t see the truth and see who Obama really is then SHAME on them. The young collegiate progressives will NEVER see beyond their nose.

    If Obama succeeds it will take YEARS to rebuild AMERICA, if in fact we can rebuild. It is a shame that these people can’t see the truth. If the shoe was on the other foot and it was a Republican in office, the screaming and calls for a special prosecutor would be loud and continuos.

    Just remember “BENGHAZI-GATE. Obama continues to be a cancer and an embarrassment to this COUNTRY.

  8. BobF says:

    Read what this retired Marine Lt. Col was spent his career as a special operations planner said to Rush Limbaugh today. Some of the things he mentioned would only have been known by those involved. The use of certain code words would have triggered an immediate notification to POTUS by either a military or civilian air constantly at his side….remember the guy whispering to Bush as he spoke with the school children on 9/11. This guy definitely knows what he’s talking about.

    • TexasFred says:

      I read the transcript earlier today, thanks for the link Bob!

    • Bluto says:

      Heard it on the radio this morning. It made my heart hurt, my stomach ache and head fill with rage.

      Traitors! Obama & his administration.
      Traitors! The mainstream media.
      Traitors! The rest of all the A-holes in the general public backing this POS POTUS because he’s their “celebrity” while they ignore our Ambassador’s death.
      Traitors! Traitors! Traitors!

  9. Steve Dennis says:

    I don’t understand how anyone can read this story and still even consider voting for Obama. This man is a disgrace and an incompetent fool at best, at worse he is covering up a gun running scandal which will dwarf Fast and Furious.

  10. Always On Watch says:

    I have never tossed around lightly the word “treason.”

    That said, the details that we are learning about Benghazi CLEARLY indicate that the Obama regime is guilty of treason. And I DO mean treason at the very top! Obama himself. I believe that these denials came from the White House. Absolutely.

    Nixon’s Watergate didn’t kill anybody. Obama’s Benghazi-gate did!

    How much clearer can the treason get?

  11. BobF says:

    I got this at BLACKFIVE and it sheds more light on the subject. This whole thing stinks to high heaven and the MSM isn’t saying a word about it.


    Having spent a good bit of time nursing a GLD (ground Laser Designator) in several garden spots around the world, something from the report jumped out at me.

    One of the former SEALs was actively painting the target. That means that Specter WAS ON STATION! Probably an AC130U. A ground laser designator is not a briefing pointer laser. You do not “paint” a target until the weapons system/designator is synched; which means that the AC130 was on station.

    Only two places could have called off the attack at that point; the WH situation command (based on POTUS direction) or AFRICOM commander based on information directly from the target area.

    If the AC130 never left Sigonella (as Penetta says) that means that the Predator that was filming the whole thing was armed.

    If that SEAL was actively “painting” a target; something was on station to engage! And the decision to stand down goes directly to POTUS!
