    Can you explain why it never did?

    Oh and you didn't forget that bit about Ansar al Sharia on purpose again, did you?.....since most didn't know that the State Dept hired them as security for Benghazi. Or did you want to say they did?

    So, again, as I stated in my edited post, there was no official stand-down order given from officials at the White House, the State Department, CIA HQ or DoD. The only person who prevented the 3 CIA operatives from engaging the enemy was their immediate supervisor on-site on the ground calling the shots as he saw them unfolding on the scene. To suggest that his order was an "official" directive given as if it were directly from the CIA, State Department, DoD or the White House is very disingenuous.
    I'm not nick picking, wait a sec, I am. The three you refer to as CIA operatives were not CIA operatives but CIA private contractors. This is why they are able to talk while CIA operatives, annalist, officers, etc. can't freely talk.

    Go back and watch the Fox News video. The CIA security contractors were ordered and were just about to respond to the terrorist attack on the counsulate. The Chief CIA officer in Benghazi was on the phone speaking to someone, the CIA security contractors don't know who was on the other end of the phone but when the chief CIA officer got off the phone he told the CIA security contractors to stand down, the order has been belayed.

    A logical guess who was on the other end of the phone was the one who ordered the stand down.

    Any other Presidential administration it would be easy to figure out who was on the other end of the phone because every POTUS before Obama followed the chain of command. The Obama administration ignores the Constitution and the chain of command that Congress created which is law.

That's all I'm trying to get across to you folks.

    I'd imagine that the on-scene supervisor is no different than a squad leader or platoon commander calling the shoots during combat prior to calling HQ for an air strike. I see no difference here. Nonetheless, I can agree there was a stand-down order given. However, it didn't come from the top brass which is what Rep. Issa and Co. (Republicans) have been clamoring for as the smoking gun of ineptitude from the Obama Administration since 9/11/12.


    Well like I have stated.....none knew about any CIA on the ground saying much of anything. Also you do know there were more than just 3 CIA operatives on the ground, Right?

    A few were injured.....and that's another reason why Gowdy is taking depositions.

    Also one very important point with it all.....was that Hillary never checked back on her people to see if they made it out alive. She never talked to anyone after Hicks. Yet she was never questioned over this? So you can see how this can play out with protocol for the Team BO.

    Oh yeah.....the Chatter. That's what BO said they were listening to.

    What did you know JB? Not much of anything other than taking up the lefts talking points. Just like you still can't fathom, figure out, nor understand and comprehend about the CIA not talking or testifying in the open. Can you figure out why now? Or who has been talking.


    Still no answer about Ansar al Sharia......huh JB? What happened? There was some New Info that you had no clue about with Benghazi and with them as Security.

    I heard Clinton's testimony. Was right there on the other side of the screen when she asked in exasperation what difference it made. Have said ever since, including on this board, that I fervently hope that if she runs for President, her opponents run that sound byte continuously.

    You watched. Don't look it up. Tell me, in your own words, what "it" was referring to.

    "It" was referring to the circumstances that occasioned the death of the four Americans. Whether they died because of a protest or because a bunch of guys just upped and decided to kill Americans, what difference did it/this make?

    And the circumstances DO matter. Because the Obama Admin deliberately and willfully dissembled. They trotted out Susan Rice on all five Sunday shows to repeat what they knew was a lie. Why did they lie? Do you know why?

Nonetheless, I know that this "revelation" comes as a feather in the cap of those who are clinging to something substantial to hang around the President's neck concerning Benghazi, but this, IMHO, isn't it. Sorry, but 3 CIA operatives do not make a U.S. security team. They're just 3 guys with 9mm hand guns against 20-50 radicals with semi-automatic riffles and rocket launchers.
    Exactly what Hillary wanted. She's the reason there was such as small number of security forces at Benghazi on that fateful day. It fit the Obama narrative that all was well in Libya after the fall of Qaddafi.

    I thought Stevens was the top CIA guy in Benghazi. Who was above him?

    According to the three men who were part of the security force in Benghazi, Christopher Stevens would be alive today had they not had been issued the order to stand down.

    That's seems like a significant impact to me.
