tyler, tx — 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?
