    Default Never Leave a Man Behind

    OK it's been a while since I posted but the attack on the US Embassy in Benghazi and the current Administrations flat out lies about the deaths of our Ambassador and those who risked, an dgave, their lives to attempt his rescue is too contemptible not to discuss.

    FYI:

    1. Three urgent requests from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. Consulate and subsequent attack nearly seven hours later were denied. CIA operators instructed to "stand down" rather than help the ambassador's team.

    2. Former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were part of a small team who were at the CIA annex approx 2km 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. They were told to "stand down."

    3. Approx one hour later, they called again to headquarters and were again told to "stand down."

    4. Woods, Doherty and at least two others ignored those orders and made their way to the Consulate, which at that point was on fire, in direct violation of orders to stand down.

    5. The 4 Directorate of Operations personnel engaged in a firefight with the AQ aligned force attacking the Embassy annex.

    6. The quick reaction force from the CIA annex evacuated those who remained at the Consulate and Sean Smith, who had been killed in the initial attack.

    7. Ambassador Stevens could not be found at this time.

    8. Around midnight Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty returned to the CIA complex.

    9. They called again for military support and help because they were taking fire at the CIA annex. They were denied.

    10. 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.

    11.The security officer had a laser designator on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Spectre gunship.

    12. Spectre gunship's were just 480 miles away at Sigonella Air base- the fighting went on for more than 4 more hours which is well within the timeframe needed to get the gunships on station and on target.

    13. Two separate Tier One Special operations forces were told to wait, among them CAG (Delta).

    14. CIA annex had visual contact and a laser designator on the Libyan mortar team that was targeting the CIA annex. Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were calling in coordinates of where the Libyan forces were firing from.

    15. There were two military surveillance drones redirected to Benghazi shortly after the attack on the Consulate began. They were already in the vicinity. The second surveillance craft was sent to relieve the first drone, perhaps due to fuel issues. Both were sending real time visuals back to US officials in Washington, D.C.

    16. Nearly seven hours after the attack on the Consulate began -- a window that represented more than enough time for the U.S. military to send back-up from nearby bases in Europe, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were killed by a mortar shell at 4 a.m. Libyan time.

    *SIDE NOTE*
    Stevens was in Benghazi that day to be present at the opening of an English-language school being started by the Libyan farmer who helped save an American pilot who had been shot down by pro-Qaddafi forces during the initial war to overthrow the regime. That farmer saved the life of the American pilot and the Ambassador wanted to be present to launch the Libyan rescuer's new school.

    how the spineless , nutless congress has done nothing in regards to hearings , impeachments , and criminal hearings is insane . i know speaker boner blows but this goes way beyond negligence. from what i understand this wasnt even the embassy rather a little used location 600 miles away. the two navy seals werent even part of his security but rather in the same area when they saw the locals forming mobs they volunteered and made a life costing choice to offer protection. This whole things stinks to high heaven and proves to me once again that we live in a country where the political class folks are never held to any laws or decent standards. shame on all who could do something yet are sitting on their hands !

    The consulate in Benghazi is akin to the Consulate in Erbil- an annex to the main US Embassy but STILL United States soil.

    This SHOULD have been defended with every available asset until there were none left to expend in the defense. Period. End of story.

    Unfortunately those on the "opposing" side of the DNC have decided not to use this and instead put it away for future political gain.

    Effing DISGUSTING!
