Benghazi Bombing Requests Denied, CIA Security Officers Ordered Twice Not to Defend Consulate (+video)

By the Associated Press. Fox News reported that security officers working for the CIA in Benghazi heard the attack on the consulate but were twice told to wait before rushing to the compound. Fox also reported that U.S. officials refused when the security team asked for U.S. warplanes to bomb their attackers, which would have meant violating Libyan airspace.

In response to the report, CIA spokeswoman Jennifer Youngblood said the CIA “reacted quickly to aid our colleagues during that terrible evening in Benghazi.”

She added: “Moreover, no one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate.”

President Barack Obama said repeatedly Friday that his administration would “find out what happened” and punish those responsible, but he twice ducked questions about whether U.S. officials denied requests for help.

“We’re going to gather all the facts, find out exactly what happened, and make sure that it doesn’t happen again, but we’re also going to make sure we bring to justice those who carried out these attacks,” Obama said in an interview with Denver television station KUSA.

The father of the one of the consulate’s defenders is outraged over the lack of Obama’s response:

    Nixon was impeached for watergate, why isn’t Obama impeached for Benghazi?!!? Why, because he’s black, that’s why! No body has the guts to file impeachment proceedings against he and Hillary because they are too CHICKEN of being called racists. IMPeach the Commies and vote the chickens out of office on nov. 6.

    God bless our troops, so much better men and women than those who fancy themselves so smart and above the law. Bunch of crap!

      Nobody died in WaterGate which was a two bit burglary! Obama refused to defend AMERICAN TERRITORY AND CITIZENS! He should be under the jail and when released, deported to the beautiful socialist country of his choice!

      • hookemowls

        Amen to that, what a bunch of spineless punks who are not supporting our troops or our interests. Totally agree that this is treason and they should be tried, let the punishment fit the crime!

  • TexRancher

    This is an act of treason! Those involved in this order (not just some scapegoat) should be prosecuted and jailed for REFUSING TO PROTECT AMERICAN TERRITORY AND AMERICAN CITIZENS THEREIN!
