As I wrote about here yesterday there was a special ops unit in Tripoli on the night of the terrorist attack in Benghazi which was preparing to mobilize in order to assist the brave heroes who died that night trying to save Chris Stevens. If this team had made it to the scene it is very possible that Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods would be alive today, but that team never made it to Benghazi because it was ordered to stand down.
Barack Obama has claimed all along that when he heard the news about the attack he authorized the use of all available resources to be used to assist in bringing the attack to an end. So, if Barack Obama did indeed authorize all available resources to the scene who ordered the stand down? Either Barack Obama made no such proclamation or somebody high up ignored his order.
Yesterday I wrote that I found it hard to believe anyone would ignore a direct order from the commander-in-chief during an attack which amounted to an act of war against the United States and today it is being reported that only the president–or someone acting on his behalf–could order the special ops to stand down.
