Fox News: CIA operators were denied request for help during Benghazi attack

Don’t think for a minute that all this was not going into the White House situation Room in real time. It most certainly was. What did Obama do? He went to bed. Remember the “three O’Clock phone call” issue in the 2008 primary campaign? Obama refused to take the call.


AC-130U Gunship was On-Scene in Benghazi, Obama Refused to Let it Fire

The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Specter gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights. The fighting at the CIA annex went on for more than four hours — enough time for any planes based in Sigonella Air base, just 480 miles away, to arrive. Fox News has also learned that two separate Tier One Special operations forces were told to wait, among them Delta Force operators.
