    I'll add to the above by saying the OP article does NOT say there was an official stand-down order given. What it DOES say, however, is the 3 CIA operatives asked to engage the enemy but NO RESPONSE was ever given. As such, they acted on their own WITHOUT ANY OFFICIAL ORDERS FROM CIA HQ one way or another.
    Today Fox News just showed a teaser for what will be aired tomorrow night (Friday 10: PM eastern time)

    So far the two CIA security ops say they were ordered to stand down after the top CIA officer got off the phone speaking to ???

    Both of these CIA individuals said if they weren't ordered to stand down that they believe all four Americans who were killed that night would still be alive today.

    And that it had nothing to do with a video on You Tube.

    What does Jason Chaffetz have to do with this ? The PoliticFact claim is from 16 months ago.

    It's nothing that we didn't already know.



    "...American officials have previously acknowledged that the Central Intelligence Agency security team paused to try to enlist support from Libyan militia allies. But the book is the first detailed account of the extent of the delay, its consequences for the rescue attempt, and who made the decisions.

    The commandos’ account — which fits with the publicly known facts and chronology — suggests that the station chief issued the “stand down” orders on his own authority. He hoped to enlist local Libyan militiamen, and the commandos speculate that he hoped the Libyans could carry out the rescue alone to avoid exposing the C.I.A. base.

    No meaningful Libyan help ever materialized....."

    He's making the same claim, and the released latest benghazi hearings also back up this fact.

    Do you think PoliticFact will be issuing a retraction and Chaffetz will be vindicated ?

    Calling the terrorist attack in Benghazi and the death of four Americans "bs" are some pretty strong words.

    But as Hillary Clinton said about four dead Americans, "At this point what difference does it make."

    I think they'll fact check and find that the story only confirms what we already know. The CIA was acting on it's own.

    The politicization of the attacks on Benghazi is BS. It's right up there with the Birthers and Truthers. Now there's the Benghazianiacs to add to the growing list of nutballs.

    It was the Obama White House who politicized the 9-11-12 terrorist attack and the murder of four Americans by blaming it on a You Tube video (cover up) and Obama claiming that Al Qaeda was being decimated and was on the run just to be given a second chance of being reelected.

    While this is important information in the Benghazi Saga, I hope that Fox chooses patience over blitzing I.e. wait until we get past September 11th before diving headfirst back into Benghazi Mode.
