According to the report, officials at a CIA annex in Benghazi requested military support multiple times during the attack on the consulate. Each time they were turned down. When they requested permission to assist the consulate staff, they were told to stand down.
Frustrated by the lack of response, former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, along with two other individuals, ignored the order to stand down and went anyway. They found Sean Smith but could not find Ambassador Stevens. They returned to the CIA annex, but it too came under attack. Again they requested military support, and it was inexplicably denied. Consider this excerpt of the Fox report:
For seven hours our men were under attack and got no help from Washington! We already knew that the embassy staff had repeatedly requested more security months prior to this attack. They were repeatedly denied. Now we are learning that CIA operatives on the ground repeatedly asked for reinforcements during the attack and they were denied!
