Fox News’ Bret Baier Exclusive Report: “Stand Down” 13 Hours At Benghazi The Untold Story [VIDEO]

September 5, 2014 at 11:00 am

Speaking publicly for the first time US security team members on the ground during the night of the attack on the secret CIA annex in Benghazi claim they were told “Stand down, you need to wait.” by “Bob” a top CIA Officer in Benghazi.

(Fox News) 13 Hours The Inside Account of What Really Happened In Benghazi–A U.S. security team in Benghazi was held back from immediately responding to the attack on the American diplomatic mission on orders of the top CIA officer there, three of those involved told Fox News’ Bret Baier.

Their account gives a dramatic new turn to what the Obama administration and its allies would like to dismiss as an “old story” – the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

Speaking out publicly for the first time, the three were security operators at the secret CIA annex in Benghazi – in effect, the first-responders to any attack on the diplomatic compound. Their first-hand account will be told in a Fox News special, airing Friday night [Sept. 5, 2014] at 10 p.m. (EDT).

Based on the new book “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi” by Mitchell Zuckoff with the Annex Security Team, the special sets aside the political spin that has freighted the Benghazi issue for the last two years, presenting a vivid, compelling narrative of events from the perspective of the men who wore the “boots on the ground.”

The security contractors — Kris (“Tanto”) Paronto, Mark (“Oz”) Geist, and John (“Tig”) Tiegen — spoke exclusively, and at length, to Fox News about what they saw and did that night. Baier, Fox News’ Chief Political Anchor, asked them about one of the most controversial questions arising from the events in Benghazi: Was help delayed?

Word of the attack on the diplomatic compound reached the CIA annex just after 9:30 p.m. Within five minutes, the security team at the annex was geared up for battle, and ready to move to the compound, a mile away.

“Five minutes, we’re ready,” said Paronto, a former Army Ranger. “It was thumbs up, thumbs up, we’re ready to go.”

But the team was held back. According to the security operators, they were delayed from responding to the attack by the top CIA officer in Benghazi, whom they refer to only as “Bob.”

“It had probably been 15 minutes I think, and … I just said, ‘Hey, you know, we gotta– we need to get over there, we’re losing the initiative,’” said Tiegen. “And Bob just looks straight at me and said, ‘Stand down, you need to wait.’”

Hillary Includes Photo Of Benghazi Caskets On “Hard Choices” Back Cover Photo Montage UPDATE: Sticker Price Already Slashed 40% [Photo]

Hard Choices indeed.

Hillary on security in Benghazi as told to Diane Sawyer:

As the independent board that investigated every aspect of this, including all the cables, concluded, there was a lack of appreciation and response to the level of threat. … That was never brought to me … What I did was give very direct instructions that the people who have the expertise and experience in security. … That is personal though, Diane. And, I mean, I’m not equipped to sit and look at blueprints, to determine where the blast walls need to be or where the reinforcements need to be. That’s why we hire people who have that expertise. … But that doesn’t mean I wasn’t saying all the time, “We’ve gotta make sure we secure this spot and that spot.”

Doesn’t mean that she did either.

Hillary lied. Americans died.

UPDATE: The price of Hillary’s new tome has already been slashed on very the day (today June 10, 2014) it was released. HA!

Iraq Vet Rep. Tom Cotton’s Scathing Rebuke Of Dems “Fake Outrage” Over Benghazi [VIDEO]

“One other lesson I learned in the Army is that we leave no man behind. And we will not leave these four men behind.” –Rep. Tom Cotton

Mr. Speaker, couple lessons I learned in the Army were you moved to the sound of gunfire and the most important step in the troop leading procedures is to supervise the execution of you orders.

When Americans were fighting for their lives in Benghazi, Barack Obama did neither. He sent no quick reaction force and didn’t even stay in the situation room to supervise the execution of his orders. We expect more from the lieutenants in the army than our president gave us that night.

For two years he’s covered up this failure of leadership by stonewalling. Not anymore. We will now get to the truth.

But what do our colleagues on the other side of the aisle say to this? They express great outrage at politicizing this matter.

When I was leading troops in Iraq in 2006, men and women who were being shot at and blown up by al Qaeda, where was the outrage as they fundraised endlessly off the Iraq war?

Where was the outrage as they viciously attacked our commanders?

Where was the outrage when they said soldiers were war criminals?

Where was the outrage when they said the war was lost?

Where was the outrage when they said only high school dropouts join the Army?

Forgive me if I don’t join my democratic colleagues in their fake outrage. Four Americans lost their lives that night in Benghazi. They deserve justice and the American people deserve the truth.

One other lesson I learned in the Army is that we leave no man behind. And we will not leave these four men behind.

“Well, I have evidence that not only are they hiding it, there is an intent to hide it. I can’t disclose that evidence yet, but I have evidence that there was a systematic, intentional decision to withhold certain documents from Congress.”

“And we’re just sick of it. So we’re gonna have him [SecState John Kerry]come explain why we’re getting documents 20 months late.”

Make them beg for mercy as you nail them to the wall.

Ted Cruz Wants Answers To These 4 Benghazi Questions

May 6, 2014 at 5:00 pm

Via Heritage:

Here are the four questions Cruz wants the Obama administration to answer:

  1. Why did the State Department repeatedly refuse to provide additional security as was requested by personnel on the ground?
  2. Why did the United States not have military assets in place to protect American men and women on Sept. 11, 2012, when there was increased terrorist activity in the region?
  3. During the Benghazi attack, why didn’t the United States send in forces to protect the four men who lost their lives?
  4. In the 19 months that have followed, why has no one been apprehended, and no one been brought to justice?

Hillary 9/13/12 Language On Benghazi IDENTICAL To Ben Rhodes 9/14/12 Email!

May 6, 2014 at 12:10 pm

Major kudos to Dick Morris for this enlightening revelation:

On September 13, 2012, — one and a half days before Obama aide Ben Rhodes sent an email advising UN Ambassador Susan Rice to blame the Benghazi attacks on a protest over an anti-Muslim Internet video — Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used the identical language embedded in a statement about the attacks.

The congruence of the two word-for-word statements suggests, at the very least, a close coordination between and White House and Hillary Clinton to deceive the American people about the true nature of the attack in Benghazi. And it may also be evidence that Hillary Clinton engineered that decision immediately following the attacks. Was the cover-up Hillary’s idea? The emails beg the question. Now Congress must investigate and decide what the answer is.
The language is virtually identical. Here it is line by line:

Hillary: “Let me state very clearly that the United States Government had absolutely nothing to do with this video.”

Rhodes: “We’ve made our views on the video crystal clear. The United States Government had nothing to do with it.”

Hillary: “We absolutely reject its content and message.”

Rhodes: “We reject its message and its content.”

Hillary: “The film is disgusting and reprehensible.”

Rhodes: “We find it disgusting and reprehensible.”

Hillary: “The film is no justification, none at all, for responding to this video with violence.”

Rhodes: “But there is no justification at all for responding to this movie with violence.” [...]

The Hillary Clinton and Ben Rhodes quotes in full accompanied by Hillary on video and a screenshot of the Rhodes email :

Hillary Clinton meeting with Moroccan leaders at the State Department Sept. 13, 2012.
CNN video:

“Let me take a moment to address the video circulating on the internet that has led to these protests in an number of countries.

Let me state very clearly and I hope it is obvious that the United States government had nothing to do with this video. We absolutely reject its content and message. America’s commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation.”

To us, to me personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensible. It appears to have a deeply cynical purpose, to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage. But as I said yesterday, there is no justification — none at all — for responding to this video with violence. We condemn the violence that has resulted in the strongest terms. And we greatly appreciate that many Muslims in the United States and around the world have spoken out on this issue.”

The Ben Rhodes (Obama advisor – deputy national security adviser for strategic communications) Susan Rice Sunday Talk Shows Benghazi talking points “prep” email dated  September 14th, 2012 (see “Top Lines-third”):

susan rice prep benghazi talking points directly tied to obama regime 2

“We’ve made our views on the video crystal clear. The United States Government had nothing to do with it. We reject its message and its content. We find it disgusting and reprehensible. But there is no justification at all for responding to this movie with violence.”

And we are working to make sure that people around the world hear that message.”
