Closed Door Hearing Report on #BENGHAZI: 'Multiple Stand Down Orders GivenTopics: Benghazi, Political News and commentaries
Reports have surfaced out of a closed-door session that multiple stand down orders were given the night of the attack on the mission in Benghazi. Testimony from eight men have given testimony to the House Intelligence committee that despite numerous requests for help - all were denied and stand down orders were given multiple times.(Hat tip - Wizbang).
Via Fox News:
"The whole issue about stand down orders is not an issue," said Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., who sits on the House Intelligence Committee. "There clearly were stand down orders given to people not only in Benghazi but also in Tripoli and the State Department's counterterrorism team."So, despite the frantic pleading from our people for help that night, all were rejected. Cue Susan Rice to spin the Obama administration's talking points again, this time on 60 Minutes. Remember that 60 Minutes questionably botched their Benghazi report last month and President Obama has referred to Benghazi as a 'phony scandal' and as 'sloppiness'. In her interview with Leslie Stahl this past Sunday, Susan Rice said she didn't have to think about "a false controversy".
Via The Blaze:
"I don't have time to think about a false controversy," Rice said. "In the midst of all of the swirl about things like talking points, the administration has been working very, very hard across the globe to review our security of our embassies and our facilities. That's what we ought to be focused on."As Wizbang points out, Susan Rice perpetrated a false controversy on five separate morning talk shows by blaming a YouTube video. About nine months later, the White House Press Secretary dodges answering questions about stand down orders. Carney refers reporters to the ARB instead of answering the question posed:
There is a bottom line to the whole #Benghazi issue. Why were our missions in Tripoli and Benghazi left with such little support, why were there no emergency reaction forces standing by on such a critical day - 9/11, why were our people left essentially defenseless despite repeated requests for more support, why were the stand down orders issued and by whom ... and most importantly - who at the top ... meaning Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton ... authorized the stand down orders, and why The American people - and especially the families of our 4 American heros killed at Benghazi ... have a right to know!
'Prove' to us it wasn't all about a cover-up for the 2012 election.
Memo to Hillary, who doesn't want to talk about responsibility: The death of four Americans does indeed make a difference'! Public accountability does matter, Mrs. Clinton. The days of Washington politicians pretending to hold themselves accountable during staged hearings that lead to nothing have to stop.
