But you then jump to the assumption that someone indeed denied/refused the aid and suggest it was then the WH. How do you jump to this conclusion?
because the order could not have been delivered from any other source.
do you really think Obama wasn't making decisions that day ?

Ever think that the reports that aid was denied are false? No, of course not
absolutely not unless you can provide protocol that would instruct the men under attack to avoid requesting assistance.
to think they wouldn't is completely absurd.

i wouldn't say for sure about repeated attempts except that there are reports of such.
150 attackers may not seem like many but i'm positive the troop protocol involved requesting assistance.
if the order to stand down didn't come from the CIA or the State Dept, there is only one other option. sad that you think Obama shouldn't be held responsible but he is the CiC after all.

besides, if our military doesn't exist to protect our own, why do we have one again ?
IF the military objective has become a political one, then it is no longer a military.

No opposing views allowed?

You could always provide a credible link.
guess that would depend on what you deem credible, wouldn't it ?

you have offered NO opposing view, do you have one ?
since you have yet to provide ANY link, credible or not ... how about, you first ?

recent update via an oathkeepers posting ...

Africom commanding officer U.S. General Carter Ham, [color=amber]after being ordered to essentially surrender control of the situation to alleged Al Queda terrorists and let Americans on the ground die, made the unilateral decision to ignore orders from the Secretary of Defense and activated special operations teams at his disposal for immediate deployment to the area.

According to reports, once the General went rogue he was arrested within minutes by his second in command and relieved of duty.
- snip -
A General who made the decision to assist diplomatic and intelligence assets on the ground has been arrested and will likely be retired or worse, while those who ordered the removal of embassy security details and ordered U.S. forces to stand-down are left to go on about their business and likely risk more American lives in the future.
kudos Gen Ham ... no good deed goes unpunished.

ETA - in case anyone doesn't understand what this means ... now that the General has "gone rogue" and been relieved of duty, he MUST have received a "stand down order" in order to disobey it.
now, since the State Dept denies giving one and the CIA (Panetta) denies giving one, that leaves only Obama who could have legitimately given the order to "stand down".
which also means the traitor Obama intentionally and purposely let those x-seals perish while he watched. Obama should be tried for treason at the first opportunity.
