Five security operators responsible for guarding the CIA station in Benghazi, Libya insist they were told to “stand down” the night of the deadly 2012 attacks, arguing the order prevented them from likely saving the life of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and others.
The claim is made in a new book titled “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi.” Scheduled for release next week, it is the first public account of the deadly attacks from security personnel who were on the ground that night.
“If you guys do not get here, we are going to die!” a diplomatic security agent shouted over the radio, the commandos say in their new book, according to the New York Times.
Within moments the team, comprised of former members of American Special Forces teams and hired as private contractors, was ready to deploy and move to the compound, a mere mile away.
“Five minutes, we’re ready,” Kris “Tanto” Paronto, a former Army Ranger, told Fox News. “It was thumbs up, thumbs up, we’re ready to go.”
However, according to the team, a top CIA officer in Benghazi, who they refer to as “Bob,” told them to “stand down.”
That is a book I want to read, I know it will be painful to get through and it will not answer all the questions but I feel I owe it to those who fought and died that day, to care......
I'm afraid this will be buried and ignored by the Nation, the same way the Young Men who came forward, en masse, to indict Berghadal. Six, seven people do not come up with the same story for fun. There were valid witnesses to Berghdal's Treason, and the SOB is still in the Military, and we are paying for his filthy existence. The Military is compromised, and there are very few left with any courage. This can be exposed to high heaven, but, getting anyone to act on it, is another thing. I know Trey Gowdy will try, he's a Tiger, and has the gratitude of the American people, but, he is also hobbled by the current Cabal running this Nation.
You are correct Bergdahl should be shoot for desertion! What is going on in the military? You also had the Gay Private (he is know a Ms.; the change paid by our tax dollars),that gave all that information to that Swede.
Since; Mullah Comrade Obama has been in office our country is being turned into a third world who knows what!
Only one person can give stand down orders to US Military and that is the CIC and for anyone to think other wise they are just kidding themselves . That order went down the chain of command . I believe the fraud and usurper barack hussein obama did not give the order to stand down but that it was Valerie Jarrett who gave the order to stand down acting as if it came from the CIC .
She sure wears the pants in the Family. She is also a Muslim.
I second that Bob, you are correct, Judicial Watch has done more than anyone yet, and they have produced evidence, that is irrevocable. We need to support them with Donations, as they appear to be "The Only Adults In The Room'. When we see something that works, it is suprising, as we haven't seen anything like it, in so long.
Congress is useless, with Boehner pandering around all over the place, what a disappointment this man has been. However, Judicial Watch just keeps plugging away, coming up with more and more evidence of the malfeasance.
EVERY ONE IN AMERICA NOW KNOWS THAT THE "STAND DOWN ORDER" WAS PERSONALLY GIVEN BY NON OTHER THAT THE MARXIST MUSLIM COMMUNIST BARRY SOETORO/BARACK OBAMA HIMSELF!! IT HAS NOW BEEN PROVEN BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUBT SO WHY HASN'T THIS " KENYAN MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE TRAITOR" BEEN IMPEACHED BY CONGRESS!!!!! WHAT THE HELL IS IT GOING TO TAKE TO SAVE AMERICA FROM THIS MUSLIM/COMMUNIST "MADMAN" ?????
FOX has the live interview .. see it for yourself .. Forget impeachment this president should be tried for treason and retired without a pension ..!
