    APNewsBreak: No 'Stand Down' Order in Benghazi

    Sorry, right wingers, there was no stand down order in Benghazi.



    APNewsBreak: No 'Stand Down' Order in Benghazi - ABC News

    WASHINGTON — Jul 10, 2014, 5:14 PM ET
    By BRADLEY KLAPPER and DONNA CASSATA Associated Press

    The testimony of nine military officers undermines contentions by Republican lawmakers that a "stand-down order" held back military assets that could have saved the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans killed at a diplomatic outpost and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya.

    The "stand-down" theory centers on a Special Operations team of four — a detachment leader, a medic, a communications expert and a weapons operator with his foot in a cast — who were stopped from flying from Tripoli to Benghazi after the attacks of Sept. 11-12, 2012, had ended. Instead, they were instructed to help protect and care for those being evacuated from Benghazi and from the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli.

    The senior military officer who issued the instruction to "remain in place" and the detachment leader who received it said it was the right decision and has been widely mischaracterized. The order was to remain in Tripoli and protect some three dozen embassy personnel rather than fly to Benghazi some 600 miles away after all Americans there would have been evacuated. And the medic is credited with saving the life of an evacuee from the attacks.

    Transcripts of hours of closed-door interviews with the military leaders by the House Armed Services and Oversight and Government Reform committees were made public for the first time on Wednesday. The Associated Press had reviewed the material ahead of its release.

    Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the Oversight panel, has suggested Hillary Rodham Clinton gave the order, though as secretary of state at the time, she was not in the military chain of command.

    No harm done, just a President amd State Department politicizing the deaths of four Americans right before an election.

    More reason why we are hearing so much claptrap about the whole IRS thingy. When one fails go back to the other.

    So...... being told "not to proceed" or "not to go" (4:14 in video) does NOT, in the leftist thesaurus, equate to being told to "stand down".

    Got it.

    Sure we do. Obama and the Democrats have been politicizing the deaths of these four Americans since the night of the attack.

    No, that's you guys. You never gave a **** about them. You never wanted to find the problem and fix it. You wanted to hurt Obama.

    GOP ConservaTEAs have been singing "4 dead in Ben--gha--zi" since that terrible day. What short memories these "mission accomplished" folks have of 9/11 and the disastrous CHOICE to destabilize Iraq. Everyday 22 more Iraqi Veterans commit suicide and "silence of the lambs" .

    Oh FFS, save your faux indignation for someone else.

    I don't buy that you have any sincere concerns for these people for one second.

    Your pissed because Obama and Hillary got caught in a HUGE and disgusting lie, thats all.

    If you sincerely cared you would be demanding that the truth about Benghazi be told.

    You would be interested in the very same thing the family members of these people are interested in. Knowing EXACTLY how and why their loved one's had to die.

    But, you could give a rats ass. No, the GOP dared to contradict your lying assed President. They dared to demand the truth from a cold hearted and twisted administration. Thats why your pissed off.
