    Lightbulb CIA: We Didnít Ask for Help During Benghazi Attack

    The agencyís acting director will tell Congress today that agents on the ground the night Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed never requested military assistance, Eli Lake reports.

    When the CIAís 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.

    The disclosure may put an end to one line of inquiry into the Benghazi affair about why reinforcements from the region were not sent on the night of the attack. ďAssistance from the U.S. military was critical, and we got what we requested,Ē the senior U.S. intelligence official said.

    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.

    Sounds like a good old fashioned cluster $#@! to me.
    No one knew who was in charge so these four men were left to die.

    And this will be the reason to blame nobody.

    But, she got involved when she went on those morning shows and claimed the attacks were the result of an obscure video.
    Did she do this on her own or was she ordered by obama to do this?

    If Susan Rice didn't lie who gave her the talking points, ie the video made me do it ??
    It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

    The Daily Beast is amazing. They make a news story out of "will say" and "is expected to say" and nitwits post it as real. Tomorrow, Cigar "will say" that President Obama is the anti-Christ and Cigar "is expected to say" he's shifting his relgiious faith to Herman Cain.

    Once it's been said, it might be a story but "gonnas" don't count for anything. In a promotional interview an applicant said I'm gonna do this and I'm gonna do that. A member of the board said, "But, what have you done in the last five years." After a long pause he said, "Well, I've shown up most of the time."

    And you've already been told by USA Today that the CIA knew it wasn't "mad at video".

    Why did Susan Rice lie ??
