Eli Like reports that CIA acting director, Michael Morell, will testify before Congress “that agents on the ground the night Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed never requested military assistance.”

DAILY BEAST – When the CIA’s acting director, Michael Morell, testifies Thursday before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, he is expected to say that the agency never requested Europe-based special operations teams, specialized Marine platoons, or armed drones on the night of the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi, Libya, according to a senior U.S. intelligence official.

According to a Pentagon timeline made public last week, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta prepared multiple military responses from the region at around midnight Benghazi time, more than two hours after the initial assault began. Those orders included mobilizing two special Marine platoons known as Fleet Antiterrorism Security Team (FAST) from Rota, Spain, to deploy to Tripoli and Benghazi. Panetta also ordered a special operations force, training in central Europe, to deploy at the Signonella Airbase in Italy. Another special operations team based in the United States also prepared to deploy to Libya.

The CIA, however, requested none of that assistance. Neither did the State Department. None of those teams ever arrived in Benghazi.

On the evening of the attack, the military provided two kinds of support to the CIA security officers who tried to fend off an attack at the U.S. diplomatic mission and then later stood guard at a CIA base less than a mile away, which was hit in a second wave at about 5 a.m. (A U.S. military team working for the CIA was sent that evening from Tripoli, but that team did not arrive at the CIA annex until after the U.S. diplomatic mission was overrun.)

The military support included an unarmed predator drone that recorded the dramatic rescue of U.S. personnel from the diplomatic mission to the CIA base at about midnight. (Timelines differ between the Pentagon and the CIA.) The U.S. military also provided medevac support to survivors of the attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, State Department communications specialist Sean Smith, and two retired Navy SEALs, Tyrone Woods and Glenn Doherty.

I find it hard to believe that the CIA agents never requested any military assistance. After all, we know one of the former SEALs had a laser targeting device and was targeting mortar sources in hopes they would be destroyed when the military arrived overhead.

But let’s just say for argument sake that they didn’t request military assistance. It was a terrorist attack and the US government knew it. Why would they not respond with at least air assets? They knew how many people they had in Benghazi and they were watching it in real time from a drone, even as the rescue attempt was made on the consulate. They had to see the rescue vehicle take on heavy damage before reaching the annex and they had to see the ensuing firefight which forced members of the annex to retreat to a building further back in the annex complex.

No, something’s not adding up.

    IT WAS 9/11 WHY SHOULD THEY HAVE HAD TO REQUEST SOMETHING THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN PLACE. everything that comes out of the mouths of this administration is cover up. no need to even watch the news.

    • Sober_Thinking

      You are right. It all comes right back to that. There should have been sufficient assets on the ground BEFORE any of this happened. All the signs were there (literally) and Stevens and others asked for help several times before that fateful day (the anniversary of 9/11).

      The other facts, timelines, decisions, etc. are relevent… and that’s important. But nothing was done BEFORE this tragedy. That’s what really stinks here… that and the fact that those people were left out there alone and unprotected while the (cough) “leadership” just watched.

      The crazy thing to me is that heads haven’t started rolling already. And now, months have gone by… evidence could have been manipulated, altered, or removed; the criminals have had time to get their stories straight; public interest has waned somewhat; the media continues to disregard this story and are covering for dear leader… Obama and his incompetent minions dropped the ball and the damned media is covering it all up.

      I fear that just like Fast and Furious… now that his highness has tragically been re-elected, other scandals like Benghazi, Solyndra, etc. will be glossed over and the wicked will go unpunished (at least on this Earth).

      • jrt1031

        There was some kind of set up that was set in place and those that disobeyed orders ruined the plan…

    • ssenecal5000

      Didn’t Obama say yesterday he gave orders to do whatever it takes to protect them?

      Seems Obama either lied or no one listened to him

      • GetWhatYouPayFor

        Weasel wording, once again. He was referring to a standing order he gave in a speech in 2009!

        • ssenecal5000

          The question that should be asked during the hearing is “Did Barack Obama order the CIA or the military to take action to save the Americans under attack by the Al Qaeda linked terrorist group?”

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/KYTC7EGQASGOTQYPY2KPC4XCZY Don

      Strange that this is being reported over a month after the attack. Lies and deceptions are this administration’s standard operating procedure. Why not lie when the majority of Americans could careless what the truth is. The truth is coming and they will not be able to not care. Exploiting the ignorance of the American people will only get you so far and the path is set.

  • yobabe

    Here we go…round and round the mulberry bush…how many of us are surprised by this?…That’s what I thought.

  • Betsey_Ross

    There is not truth anymore. Just @ss covering. The president and all of his idiots were watching. The CIA shouldn’t have to ask for help. The real time problem was unfolding before their eyes. Why wouldn’t you send help? There’s the question. This is more incompetentence from the preezy. What is the secret he is trying to cover up?

    General Hamm tried to send help and all he got was fired.

  • trouble06

    If they keep telling different stories the American people will simply get tired of the BS and forget about it!!!!! When is Congress going to put their foot down and get to the bottom of this. If our CIA, FBI are this incompetent then it is Congress’ responsiblity to the security of Americans to demand a cleaning.

    • jrt1031

      We had a chance yesterday with Newts nomination and yet the spineless obama followers in congress turned it down. We are screwed

      • mikeinidaho

        We were screwed the day the communist-in-chief was first elected in 2008. All that’s left now is for him to throw us under the bus and try to turn this country into a tinpot Third world dictatorship. I WILL NOT COMPLY! Lock and load.

    This has stunk from the beginning. Only those who know the truth will keep the masses focused on affairs and other shiney stories while the families of Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty.

  • pmb88

    So let me get this straight. Our people were outnumbered by the “protestors” by a huge margin. The “protestors” had an assortment of weapons attacking our people and our people never called for reinforcements to get them. I’ll start believing that when pigs fly. This is coming out now that they didnt call after a few weeks of the Griffin’s version of events went unchallenged. Why the delay? They could’ve said something when the Griffin’s version came out to dismiss it but instead they waited.

  • Haywoodjbl

    Revisionist History has now begun. This will be how Benghazi is remembered….Must protect POTUS…..It can be the ONLY answer and it is what Petraus will lie about when he testifies as well. They have settled on the only story that everyone (involved in the cover up) can win with.

    We have lost our country

  • Wigglesworth111

    So the CiC can’t take action when a terrorist attack is in progress unless the CIA asks for help?

  • E. Lee Zimmerman

    The next version will involve Showbama himself calling the Ambassador while the attack was happening. It will come out that Showbama offered military assistance, and the ambassador turned it down, saying that they would take care of the matters themselves.

    Mark my words.

  • callie1984

    Hmm, well if assistance was never requested, how could have Obama issued the order, “do whatever needs to be done”? This is something he repeatedly claims to have said.
    Gosh, I so dread the next four years!

    • jrt1031

      and in total it will be 8 years which is basically ten years taken off the lifes all all of us and not to mention the fact that his laws will affect the rest of our lives and only now will our children maybe be able to fight the war that will come from all this mess.

      • unclesamnephew

        it will not happen. demo-rats under following mumbles mouth senator reid will not allow impeachment. and then there is the man who stabs conservatives in the back, speaker of the house

      • Gtrjag

        If Obama was impeached the brain-dead Obama Drones in the inner-city would riot, and you would still have Joe Biden as President. I’m not saying that it should not be done or that there isn’t sufficient cause. I just don’t think It would significantly improve our situation. America had the opportunity to stop this President and slow down the decline, but we failed to take it. We are now going to reap the consequences.

        • FreeManWalking

          Biden would be a bumbler but not as effective at USA destruction as 0b0.

          But there will be no impeachment effort as long as the dems control the senate.

          It ain’t gonna happen, even if every news camera in DC caught him raping a little boy in the rose garden.

          The MSM PAC would just dismiss it as a youngster accidentally got snared in rose bush and 0b0 was trying to push him out of it. What a brave act 0b0 did, he didn’t think of himself he went right in not worrying that he might get a scratch.

        • jrt1031

          I would love for that to happen………when can you sign me up for that show??

      • virginiagentleman1

        There will be no impeachment in a Harry Reid led Senate my friend. If Conservatives can take the Senate in 2014, then perhaps so.
        Notice that I said conservatives and not republicans. This past election has shown republicans to be mostly moderates, the go along to get along crowd.
        Another word I’m seeing often to describe republican leadership and most rank and file members? Cowards.

        • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

          That’s one of the reasons I want treason charges. Congress does that, and if Boehner won’t do it, perhaps someone with more ehm, stones will. Bypass dingy harry all together.

          • virginiagentleman1

            The House brings impeachment and treason charges on the behalf of the people, milady. The Senate is the body that tries those charges when high ranking government officials are charged.

            I submit to you that the House as it is currently led does not, as you have so eloquently said, have the STONES to bring charges, and even if they did, a senate under the control of Harry Reid will NEVER try Obama or a member of his team.
            Frankly speaking, I’m not so sure that a senate lead by that old weakling McConnell, would do so either.

            Rino’s and Dino’s look out for themselves, not us, as they have proven over and over again!

                As a young warrior myself way back when, fighting against a stacked deck was just the way it was then! Heck, we won most of the time.

                As for GBW, he is always in my prayers. GB’s like him get into some nasty battlefields and with the way the world is now, you’ve gotta know that lad and his team are standing directly in harms way ‘somewhere’ on this planet.

    we never requested military support assets the night of Sept 11th.

    –okay, i have a followup question… *clears throat* “why the flip not?”

  • tinker_thinker

    What? They expect people to believe that?

  • Conservative_Hippie

    Too many chefs spoiling the soup.

  • sDee

    “I find it hard to believe that the CIA agents never requested any military assistance.”

    The article says his testimony is that the agency did not request assistance.

    The next question is, if the agents requested assistance but the agency did not, why not?

  • colliemum

    Indeed, scoop – something is not adding up at all!

    This is turning into the biggest cover up, combined with a massive CYA exercise, ever to be seen.

    The only way the truth will come out is in a public hearing, in front of Issa’s committee, will all participants under oath – and with certain congressmen leading the charge and ripping the truth out of those miscreants.
    Yes, I’m talking of Trey Gowdy and some of his colleagues, those with an ‘R’ after their names …

  • mikeinidaho

    Bull crap! if ANYONE in the administration says it, it is an out-and-out lie. Believe NONE of it. They will lie like cheap rugs to save the scrawny butt of their communist-in-chief.
    This is another total cockup by the most inept, least prepared, most America-hating president in history.

    • jrt1031

      They just got away with the big lie. The election so the sky will be the limit to the amount of lies. Can I say anxiety is at an all time high now. Please people fight to use any kind of medication or addiction to absorb the anxiety right now…. We all need our wits about us!!! Stay strong and pray to GOD he will hear us and things will work out for the best.

  • http://navalwarfare.blogspot.com/ Libertyship46

    Don’t you see, the administration is trying to shut this all down, fast. All just a terrible tragedy. Nothing to see here, just move along. And the “fog of war,” to use Hillary Clinton’s self-serving phrase, will be blamed for everything. Because, don’t ch’ya know, nobody is ever accountable for anything in this administration. There were “no problems” with Benghazi. It was all an unfortunate and “unavoidable” tragedy that just happened to occur on the anniversary of 9/11. Go figure. All of you out there are going to get a lot of this over the coming weeks. It remains to be seen if the Republicans in Congress have the nerve (and I could use a much stronger noun, which rhymes with “halls”) to pursue this and actually get to the truth. Right now, I doubt it given that Harry Reid controls just about everything in the Senate. As long as Reid wants to stonewall this, nothing much will ever be discovered.

  • Darkbella007

    Where are the survivors!? This has been bugging me for awhile now. We don’t know anything about what really happened.
    So the President says “do everything that needs to be done”, and a drone and a skeleton crew is sent? So, now the victims are going to be blamed because they never asked for help? How does one square that? We won’t know until people who where there start speaking up.

    • jrt1031

      They probably have been paid large sums of money to keep quiet. Blood money

      or threatened bodily harm

  • virginiagentleman1

    Horror stories like this one always reminds me of some sage advice from one of the Founders of our Republic, Thomas Jefferson,” Trust not in the confidence of men, but bind them down with the chains of the Constitution!”
    If Jefferson was not inclined to trust government, why should our approach be any different then his? He knew government would lie to preserve its agenda, as the Obama regime does on just about every issue.

    There is a reason the Founders desired a small federal government and under the thumb of the citizens. Somewhere along the way, we allowed ourselves to come under the thumb of the giant and out of touch federal government. Did Jefferson foresee this happening to future generations?
    Perhaps, because he also said that there should be a revolution every 20 years just to keep government honest.

    Were you aware that all fifty states have tendered articles of secession to the White House seeking peaceful seperation from the union? Seven states already have the required 25,000 names to place those articles on the ballots, led by Texas.
    You can find this information at WhiteHouse. gov.

  • FreeManWalking

    “he is expected to say that the agency never requested Europe-based special operations teams, specialized Marine platoons, or armed drones on the night of the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi, Libya, according to a senior U.S. intelligence official.”

    I imagine the FLASH Traffic said Benghazi Consulate is under all out attack, send in the Calvary, or just send help.

    They wouldn’t be requesting an itemize list of response to their distress signal.

    • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

      If they could send a drone to watch, why could they not send a team of Special Ops guys?! That’s what I want to know.

      • virginiagentleman1

        Yes milady, they could have, but for some reason did not.

        First off, there were Delta Force warriors on standby, which generally means they were kitted out and just needed to board a plane. Also there were Fast Marines and again the same applies to them, just needed a plane. These two groups of warriors are always prepared for combat and ready at a moments notice. It is the very nature of what they do!
        Plus there were A-130 gunships on standby. Unless the word ‘standby’ has changed its very nature since Obama has been in power, ‘standby’ means a fueled and armed aircraft simply awaiting its crew. The same is true of Navy fighter jets sitting standby on an Aircraft carrier, with the exception that those sitting in the catapults have the pilots already on board.
        Here on this very site there are Green Berets, Deltas, Seals, Marines and AF commandos who are more then familier with ‘standby’s’, and who have stood more then their share of them.

        If saving our people had been a priority of this admin, we had assets of every type at the ready. The attackers would have been decimated!
        Unfortunately, our warfighters are led by cowards, idealogues, and academedians.

        I have a bad feeling that those who died were either abandoned and/or betrayed for political reasons. Perhaps as an Obama apology for…………….?

        But I will never buy into the BS that this Admin spews as a matter of course. It has proven that it will lie first, and cannot be trusted.

        • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

          “I have a bad feeling that those who died were either abandoned and/or betrayed for political reasons..”

          This has been my thought from the very beginning myVirginagentleman. An evil thing, but sadly wouldn’t be surprising. :-(

          • virginiagentleman1

            What does a citizenry, split 50/50, do, when betrayed by their government?

            On the one hand, the 50% who voted for Obama will defend him and his machinations, while the 50% who voted against him will seek redress.
            That ‘redress’ would be to a Congress that appears satisfied with things as they are now.
            Lefties and left leaning moderates have a voice in Congress. Conservatives? Not so much.

            We are so divided as a nation that nothing much will be done, milady. Not only is our government gridlocked, but our citizens are as well.

    God help us. How can The People stand up and make a real change in this world, for how bad things are now, for peace and protection? I am baffled to an extent. I know war means money for some and evil and negative spreads quick like a nasty virus but how can we make a change and overcome all this negative with good and Love? Seems like anyone with b****, I mean back bone to stand up is either made to look/appear crazy, put in jail or even worse~wiped out. With the Love and support of God, that doesn’t scare me but I do wonder how to get all small groups of same minded people into one big group to stand up and make a difference. Or if its even a possibility, although I feel nothing really is impossible with God, I just am at a loss of the “how”. Ok, Im done rambling

    • virginiagentleman1

      CL, you ask how we get the many small groups together to stand up and make a difference, or if it is even possible.
      It certainly is possible. What is missing at this time is a honest and forthright charismatic leader to unite the factions.

      We do have those kinds of people such as Palin, West, Cain, and many others, but none of them have sought to lead a national movement.
      Each is quite busy working from the ‘sidelines’ at a time that America needs a leader leading from the front on the battlefield.

      Where is a ‘George Washington’ when we need one? Like now.

        Sounds familiar. Remember the meaning of “is?”

    Primo: there were many previous requests
    secundo:
    …………we were told they were watching the murder of our people in REAL TIME.
    Their conclusion (?):
    “look, they do not need any help, see”…………………………???

    One reason that Petraeus went to talk to the Station Chief and probably the base chief, and maybe some surviving special operators who were there.

    The General is the only voice who can testify, unless the House committees grow gonads and get testimony from the CIA guys on the ground, the British special ops on the ground, and go get the NSA recordings of all ‘traffic’ from any sources. It all exists on servers in Utah. The National Security Agency has the truth recorded.

    corrupt admin all the way thru. sad these lives were lost and no one still wants to take accountability for this. sad we have no real leader. a real leader does not lie.

      As you always do, Abbs, you hit the nail on the head. Kudos my friend. VG

    I hope Patreus has enough love of country to tell the truth. He probably has been warned of the ‘consequences’ if he does not follow the script given him by the WH. No telling how many people involved may have unfortunate accidents befall them.

    More covering hindquarters. Not the first time. Won’t be the last. Not even worth paying attention to it because it is all lies.

  • Spartan4Palin

    I wonder if they will start to attack the credibility of Catherine Herridge and Jennifer Griffin’s reports? That’s what it appears to me from the way Eli Lake is laying out his version! And I wonder how Fox will stand behind these two incredibly talented reporters when the clamp down starts on this story?

    They’re all lying. We’re infiltrated and we’re not safe.

      “It is not the hardships, it is not the gunfire, it is not the threats. It is dealing and fighting against the people, programs and personnel who are supposed to be supporting me…. For me, the Taliban is on the inside of the building.”

    SO MANY LIES. why can’t people just tell the truth???

    • kong1967

      Obama will destroy them if they do, and everyone is covering their own butts without implicating Obama.

  • kong1967

    Ugh, this is all getting confusing because the truth is getting intwined and buried in a web of lies. I know there were many reports that there were mulitple requests for help.

    But, does it really even matter? Obama, Hillary, the CIA, and every other Tom, Dick and Harry had a live feed of what was going on. WTF?

    “Hey, Obama, they’re about to kill all of our people.”

    Obama — “No no, they haven’t tapped their hand on the mat three times. They don’t want help”.

    I am so sick of these freaking lies that still give Obama no excuse.

  • klaffner

    Wow. That reporting was fairly conclusive that there was a request for help. Something tells me that the sources for that reporting have been accounted for.

    “No, something’s not adding up.”

    I respectfully disagree.

    Where is the photo from the situation room? I want to see who was in there at the time….

    too many lies and cover up, since the2007 Dems primaries to the last two elections, my ear have been attacked and abused with lies from the Left and even from the right. Lies are here to stay, it is up to us to direct and put out the days and weeks, months and years job describtion to move our cause forward as conservatives.

    I feel many of us know a whole lot about many thing. Is it possible that we can all put that knowledge to action so we don’t sound like many of our politicians reps, all talk and know too much and than cry and do nothing.

    Thank you Scoop for the daily delivery of the many real activities taking place, this site has become factual and truth revelation of the current event going on not only here at home but also oversea wise.

    I feel wisdom of many conservatives and country and constitution lovers are so ripe and ready to do something about the established-good-old-boys career politicians and the left.

    “No, something’s not adding up.”

    Adding has never been a liberal’s strong suit. They live in a Bizarro world.

      President Obama told a late-night talk show host recently that he has trouble with anything beyond 7th grade math.

  • jodypear

    They’ve told so many stories, they have gotten themselves into a pickle, haven’t they? “Stories” is what I called lies when I was younger.
