Navy Seals Were Twice Told To "Stand Down" by U.S. Officials. #fb #MakingMePhysicallyIll
Never have we abandoned our best, and left them behind the way it is becoming clear we did in Benghazi. The shameful collection of absolute bungling started and ended with the commander in chief, and later when he lied about it for days on end before being exposed he proved he can no longer be trusted to lead, the bungling has demonstrated that he does not have the discernment to make the tough decisions.
Not only that — when the terrorists began the 4 hour assault on the CIA Annex one of the rooftop seals painted the mortar position of the enemy, and began begging for a plane to come take it out… REQUEST ALSO DENIED.
F-16's from a base 400 miles away could've easily made it there:
"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 Specter 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."
