The Benghazi story grows more terrible by the day

On the Sean Hannity program last night there was an incredible interview with Charles Woods, the father of slain former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, who was killed along with another former SEAL by mortar fire at the CIA annex a mile from the Benghazi consulate where Ambassador Christopher Stevens and staff member Sean Smith were killed. The story is that Woods and his colleagues asked higher ups for permission to go to the consultate and help, were told twice to “stand down,” then disobeyed orders and went to the consulate on their own, where they found Smith’s body and brought it out. Then the CIA annex itself came under an hours-long attack, and Woods and the others asked for air support, and were again turned down. These decisions must have come from higher levels of the administration.

I’ve seen headlines to this effect over the last couple of days but have not read the stories on it. I want to learn the facts and I will try to get to this soon.
