Combat Experts Wanting to Help During Benghazi Attack Were Told to ‘Stand Down”

Imagine being in a “war zone” and knowing comrades are under attack, but told to “stand down” — leave them alone!

Former Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were at the CIA Annex about a mile from the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi when Ambassador Stevens and other came under fire. They radioed to higher-up officials twice in an hour requesting to go there and help.  Both times they were told to “stand down.”

Then the men at the CIA Annex took fire and again asked for military support. Reports indicate the defenders had a laser sight on the target that was shooting at the compound, meaning the military could have easily targeted it for a bomb or missile strike. Despite repeated calls, two separate Tier One Special Ops forces were told to wait!

Finally, after seven hours of fighting, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were killed by a mortar shell that landed near them. They had not been able to find Ambassador Stevens, but because they defied orders and went to the Annex, additional people were able to be evacuated.
