Benghazi: Petraeus Implicates Obama

Central Intelligence Agency director David Petraeus has emphatically denied that he or anyone else at the CIA refused assistance to the former Navy SEALs who requested it three times as terrorists attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on the night of Sep. 11. The Weekly Standard and ABC News report that Petraeus’s denial effectively implicates President Barack Obama, since a refusal to assist “would have been a presidential decision.”

Earlier today, Denver local reporter Kyle Clarke of KUSA-TV did what the national media largely refuses to do, asking Obama directly whether the Americans in Benghazi were denied requests for aid. Obama dodged the question, but implied that he had known about the attacks as they were “happening.”

Emails released earlier this week indicated that the White House had been informed almost immediately that a terror group had taken responsibility for the attack in Benghazi, and Fox News reported this morning that the two former Navy SEALs, Ty Woods and Glen Doherty, had been refused in requests for assistance they had made from the CIA annex.

Jake Tapper quoted Petraeus this afternoon denying that the CIA was responsible for the refusal: “No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate.”

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    Harold: lets stop jumping to conclusion they want for political reason instead of the good of the country. I fully trust Petraeus, I also am quite sure he has a good idea who did what but cannot say so now.. No time to explain but State is crawling with special interests. I am quite sure the order came from State never got to Obama this has happen before when Ross offered Netanyahu air crafts and ridiculous amount of money for the Peace Talk, not even sure Hillary knew. But we heard it and Obama said on the air “I never signed that paper”.

    That is why Obamawant to investiogate and wait tiull aftr election if he say any ting hey wills ay it is political. But hedid say “I will find the truth and will let the fall where it may” very clear response this will not be ankothe USSS Liberty.
