Special Operator: We Could Have Saved Lives in Benghazi

According to a special operator that was personally monitoring the situation in Benghazi on 9-11, lives could have been saved.  In a Fox News interview with reporter Adam Housely, the special operator claims that there were two special operations units known as CIF-Teams, Commanders In-Extremis Forces, that could have been flown into Libya in time to rescue Glen Doherty and Ty Woods after the two spent hours fighting heavily armed terrorists who had already succeeded in killing U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and information officer Sean Smith.

On the night of the Benghazi terror attack, special operations put out multiple calls for all available military and other assets to be moved into position to help — but the State Department and White House never gave the military permission to cross into Libya, sources told Fox News.  The disconnect was one example of what sources described as a communication breakdown that left those on the ground without outside help.

“When you are on the ground, you depend on each other — we’re gonna get through this situation. But when you look up and then nothing outside of the stratosphere is coming to help you or rescue you, that’s a bad feeling,” one source said.  Multiple sources spoke to Fox News about what they described as a lack of action in Benghazi on Sept. 11 last year, when four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, were killed.
