In a story which makes my heart ache, Fox News reports during the Benghazi consulate firefight, our Americans there who were basically in an Alamo-like fight for their lives asked for support three times.

All three times a team of seals and other help was told to "stand down."

The report goes on to say three urgent requests for military assistance sent from the CIA annex were all denied. Additionally, CIA operators were told to "stand down" rather than respond when shots were heard around 9:40 p.m. on September 11. Following the alleged developments, Charles Woods, father of ex-Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods who was killed in the attack, spoke out on Glenn Beck's radio program.

Glen Doherty and Woods, the two former Navy SEALS who were among the four Americans inevitably killed, subsequently disobeyed orders from superiors to "stand down" and decided to go to the main consulate building to help U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and others who were under siege. While it was previously known that these men arrived on the scene to provide assistance, the alleged "stand down" orders and the repeatedly-denied requests for military assistance are new developments to a story that seems to be continuously unraveling.

Charles Woods said, when he received his son's body back in the U.S., the president seemed distracted. Joe Biden made a crude remarks asking -- and I'm cleaning this up --"has your son always had testicles the size of cue balls?"

He said Mrs. Clinton promised to bring the film maker to justice.

Where is the outrage from the rest of my colleagues in the media?

Where is the outrage from us?

That's my point of view, what's yours?

I'm taking bets on how quickly, if elected, Romney will be blamed for the deaths in Benghazi and for the misinformation coming out of the Whitehouse since 9/12.

Neal, I agree, , ,WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE, , , We the voters, will make our outrage known, I hope, this November.
WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE from YOU, the media.
Why is your station not screaming to the hig Heavens about this. . . . . We see your POV, , ,WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE ON SCREEN DAILY UNTIL WE GET ANSWERS.
It is not there. The media is allowing these killers-by-proxy to get away free.
I am MORE outraged at our "politicians and policy-makers" than I am at the terrorists.

The empty suit and his old bag Hillary are only concerned with their political ambitions. The only military experience Obama has is throwing rocks at the national guard while protesting.

All of you are right. Others have pointed out that this is "killed' by the media with the intent of covering, once again for Obama. Anyone trying to point out more is even labeled a trouble-maker. Yet this is indicitive of many other things that haven't even come out yet. Alinsky says that problems should be capitalized or even invented. You can bet there is so much more that this adm. will airbrush this to disguise it. I am still mad at Clinton for Sommali & our Marine bodies dragged .Sad.

and yall support mitt making millions in Iranian investments..more than you support American workers....what idiots you are.

Don, do you have to unbuckle your belt to have a thought?

Guess making comments that insult instead of proving your point with FACTS make you feel like a real man too. You show that you are not an educated person with the 3rd grad level insults.

Did you see all the folks from the U.N. condemning the Benghazi attack?????

Neither did I. They are too busy checking out Texas Voting.

Too busy campaigning. Cannot take of business when all your time is spent campaigning and eating up the taxpayers money. Ask where the whitehouse staff was during this period; Vallire Jarrett or Susan Powers? No one was minding the store, so you get a lie that they thought would sell.

There won't be any outrage. We've already been accused,even by some in the media, of trying to make hay out of a "non-story".
The arguement will be: he's Obama, he's aDemocrat, he's black, he's a Christian even though Madonna calls him a Muslim, he should be cannonized not criminalized. We'll be told the crime is trying to make something of this.
