Report: Top CIA Officer in Benghazi Delayed Response to Terror Attack That killed Four Americans

A report from operatives on the ground during the 2012 terror attacks in Behghazi, Libya claims that the top CIA official in the region delayed the rescue attempts that could have saved the lives of the four Americans killed during the attacks, one of whom was our Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens.

The reports say that this was a “stand down” order, something that all democrats in Congress and the Obama administration claim was never ordered during the attacks.

Fox News’ Bret Baier recently spoke to three security operatives stationed at the secret CIA annex in Benghazi who were involved in the incident. The trio claim that they were ordered not to respond as soon as they could have to save American lives.


These men say they were prevented from rescuing the Americans ultimately killed by terrorists in Benghazi.

The three private security contractors, Kris “Tanto” Paronto, Mark “Oz” Geist, and John “Tig” Tiegen, spoke at length to the Fox News reporter about their experiences during that terrible day. All three said they were ready to go to Ambassador Stevens’ rescue.

One of the operatives, Kris Paronto, a former Army Ranger said, “Five minutes, we’re ready. It was thumbs up, thumbs up, we’re ready to go.”

But the three were told to stand down by a CIA operative they refer to as “Bob.”

Now that the feds have reluctantly released even more documents from its handling, or should we say mis-handling, of the Benghazi incident during which four Americans including our US ambassador to Libya were killed, Fox News is going to revisit the story with a new special titled, Fox News Reporting: Benghazi: White House Cover-Up Revealed?.

The one-hour special will be hosted by Fox host Bret Baier and will investigate newly released emails that reveal a presidential advisor advocated a strategy to shield the president and his policies from blame for the attack on September 11th in Benghazi, Libya just ahead of the 2012 elections.

Also contributing to the report will be FNC’s Charles Krauthammer, Mara Liasson, George Will and Steve Hayes.

The show will air on your cable’s Fox News Channel Friday, May 2, at 9PM Eastern Time.

If you miss the original air date, Fox is replaying the special on Saturday, May 3, at10PM Eastern and Sunday at 9PM Eastern.

Host: Bret Baier. Panelists: Mara Liasson, NPR / FOX News Contributor; Charles Krauthammer, Syndicated Columnist/FOX News Contributor; Steve Hayes, The Weekly Standard / FOX News Contributor; George Will, Syndicated Columnist/FOX News Contributor.

Outnumbered! Fox News to Debut New Show With Four Females Hosts & One Male

April 23, 2014 | Filed Under Fox News, Media, Media Bias, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Before it even debuts, the new Fox News show Outnumbered is being called a “stroke of evil genius.” It features four, count ‘em, four, female hosts and only one, lonely male.

The four female hosts and one male host will mostly be rotating. Two of the females will be FOX Business Network’s Sandra Smith and FOX Report Weekend anchor Harris Faulkner. Other female hosts will be such Fox personalities as co-hosts of The Five, Kimberly Guilfoyle and Andrea Tantaros along with FNC contributors Jedediah Bila, Katie Pavlich and Kirsten Powers.

The male host will rotate, as well, varying each day, sometimes he will be as a notable figure in the national dialogue that week.

Like many of these panel shows, Outnumbered will tackle top news headlines from all angles and perspectives. Certainly the panelists will examine the top news of the hour but they will also deliberate over the leading pop culture and relationship issues dominating the headlines that day.

Media Giddy Over Chelsea Clinton Extending Dynasty With Baby Announcement

On Thursday, April 17, Chelsea Clinton said that she and husband of four years, investment banker Marc Mezvinsky, have a blessed event to announce as the couple is now expecting their first child. But the Old Media may be more excited than Chelsea that the Clinton dynasty is growing.

One of the earliest to bubble over with excitement seemed to be a screaming, all caps Tweet pushed out by CNN’s Candy Crowley.

Oddly, Crowley coupled Chelsea’s announcement with Obama’s wonderful Obamacare news, saying, “AT ABOUT THE SAME TIME-TWO ANNOUNCEMENTS: POTUS SAYS 8 MILLION ENROLLED IN ACA, AND CHELSEA CLINTON SAYS SHE’S PREGNANT.”

Even some of Crowley’s fans wondered why she was yelling at them with the all caps post that breaks netiquette standards.

Without a doubt Obama’s government is constantly whipping up hatred for anyone who disagrees with the liberal line. So, at 10PM Eastern on Saturday, April 5, Fox is airing FOX News Reporting: Enemies of the State to expound on this anti-free speech crusade being perpetrated by people and entities ranging from President Obama, Senate Democrat leader Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, to the NSA and the IRS and others on the left-wing of the American political sphere.

In my writing about media, I have been fascinated in the rise of Fox Business Network in the financial reporting game. Recently I noted that FBN snagged star business reporter Maria Bartiromo from CNBC, but amusingly she just went back on CNBC… in an ad for Fox Business!

FBN purchased a series of ads from the New York Market served by Time Warner Cable and began running them on CNBC touting the wonderfulness of Maria’s FBN show, Opening Bell with Maria Batriromo.

“Come on over,” Bartiromo urges during her advert.

Politico’s Crap About a ‘Career Path’ for Dissenting Journalists

Politico just published one of those articles that always drives me crazy where the media takes one or two examples of something and then tries to turn that into some sort of massive wave where in truth it is no such thing. This time Politico is saying that because three people left mainstream journalism to become media critics, that must mean there is a “career path” for disaffected journalists to fame and success.

The Politico story titled, “Media career path: Cry ‘media bias’,” is written by Dylan Byers and is loosely formed around the departure from CBS of excellent investigate journalist Sharyl Attkisson. Then the article segues to Bernard Goldberg and John Stossel both of who left big three network jobs to become Fox News analysts who often criticize the media.

The premise of the story is presented in the third paragraph:

Yet, even as Rove says Republicans shouldn’t Attack Obamacare, elections statistician Larry Sabato Says Obamacare is killing Democrats. What is Karl Rove thinking by telling Republicans not to attack Obamacare very hard while Larry Sabato is saying the Dems are extremely vulnerable on Obamacare?

‘Shark Tank’ Repeats Get More Ratings Than All of CNN’s Programming

-By Warner Todd Huston

Despite the much ballyhooed tinkering by chief Jeff Zucker to halt CNN’s ratings decline, the cable news network racked up its third-lowest month on record for January. Things were so bad that even repeats of the reality show Shark Tank airing on CNBC beat CNN in the ratings.

This January, on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, the nation’s oldest financial cable news network, began airing repeats of the ABC reality show Shark Tank, where applicants vie for funding from a panel of venture capitalists. CNBC’s reruns topped every show on CNN as well as every show but The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC.

The reruns of the reality/game show came in at number 6 in the ratings race behind four Fox News shows, The O’Reilly Factor, The Five, The Kelly File and Special Report With Bret Baier, with Maddow’s show on MSNBC coming it at fifth place. But Shark Tank swamped every single CNN show on the schedule.

The other day I mentioned how interesting it was to see Fox Business Network continue to grow and make inroads into the ratings of the once wholly dominant CNBC. Today FBN announced that it has stolen away one of CNBC’s biggest names. FBN has announced that it has signed Maria Bartiromo to a multi-year contract.

According to the press release, FBN chief Roger Ailes proudly said, “I tapped Maria to report live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange while at CNBC, and I am delighted to have her join me once again alongside our star lineup at FOX Business”

Bartiromo had been with CNBC since 1993 and in 1995 became the first business journalist to report from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Before her long stint at CNBC, Bartiromo worked for CNN’s business news.

The phrase “Obama lied, people died” should ring out from every corner of the country now that we know 100% for sure that Obama knew full well that no “anti-Muslim Youtube video” caused the attacks in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans. Obama knew as it was happening that it was a terror attack but lied to America anyway.

Fox News recently uncovered a stash of documents that proves beyond doubt that Obama and his advisers knew just after the attacks began that it was terrorism.

Fox News correspondent James Rosen reported on January 14 that 450 pages of sworn testimony by America’s highest ranking military officers makes the case clearly about what the administration knew and when it was known.

Judge Jeanine Slams Obama for Ignoring Benghazi While Going Nuts Over Christie Bridge-Gate

Barack Obama is a total hypocrite. His ignoring Hillary Clinton’s criminal failure in Benghazi is typical, but even worse we see his administration going crazy to attack New Jersey Governor Christ Christie over his bridge incident. Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro really lashes Obama over these criminal failures.

Pirro took after Obama and his criminal administration during her opening statement for her January 11 show on Fox.

“Shame on YOU, Mr. President,” Pirro says.

Here are Pirro’s comments in full:

I hate traffic and I hate traffic jams.

I hate them because they slow me down. Slow is not my speed.

But what I hate even more is the hypocrisy of the Obama administration, especially when it comes to justice.

Slow would be the Obama administration speed.

One year and four months ago, four Americans, including our ambassador, were massacred in Benghazi. Weeks later the FBI shows up to investigate a trampled crime scene.

I don’t know about you, but I still haven’t seen anyone prosecuted or even in custody. But President Obama is going to get to the bottom of it. Right…

“I know, I’m surprised too,” he quipped sending the crowd into gales of laughter. Well, everyone but Barack Obama who gave a slight smile but didn’t seem all that amused. I guess Obama’s hate can’t be tamed by mere humor.

Whole Foods CEO: Obamacare Will Create a Permanent Part-Time Workforce

The CEO of Whole Foods, well known for standing against Obamacare, recently pointed out that the President’s government take over of our healthcare system will create a permanent part-time work force filled with positions that will never be able to advance to full time work. Because of that, Obamacare is hardly a very American ideal as it puts a government-enforce, concrete ceiling on top of workers who hope to better themselves.

Whole Foods CEO John Mackey appeared on Fox News with Stuart Varney on December 18 to discuss the negative impact that Obamacare is having on the nation’s economy and its workforce.

After 35 years in business, Mackey knows how badly Obamacare will hurt the country. “It’s raising our costs,” Mackey said. “We’ll have to cover things that are expensive that we may not want to cover, our team members may not want to have covered,” he pointed out.

During SNL’s Weekend Update segment, troupe member Kenan Thompson starred as a black Santa Klaus that riffed on some well-worn and prosaic themes. But even with the same ‘ol, same ‘ol racism topics, the segment did have a few funny lines.

When Weekend Update’s faux anchor Cecily Strong asked Thompson’s “Santa” if he was OK with people thinking that he was really white, Thompson said, “Well, a white guys taking credit for something a black guy did? I’m more used to it than okay with it.”

This is why the racebaiting industry is to be dismissed, folks. They just have nothing serious to say. For example, a guest on the Sean Hannity Fox News show went on an absurd, spittle-specked, wild-eyed rant that we have racial apartheid today right here in the USA.

The guest, racist Leo Terrell–he’s a radio host in L.A. and, no, I never heard of him before, either–started screaming that black people can’t go to states like Wyoming and Idaho because: RACISM!

Apparently this fool thinks that all our western states are filled with hood-wearing Klan members and they’ve barred all blacks from going there.

At one point in the conversation, this racebaiter screamed, “People like me can’t go to Idaho and Wyoming! Those are segregated states and always will be, they’re apartheid states! Are you kidding me?”

Well, maybe “toker” isn’t the right word to use for Baca. In an appearance on the Stephen Colbert show he noted that he doesn’t smoke weed. But he does eat it.

And now for another episode of the more caring, more grownup, more tolerant left who… hopes to kill their political enemies. This episode stars MSNBC’s Chris Matthews who hopes that soon we’ll see “killing O’Reilly.”

Matthews appeared on a recent broadcast of the satirical political interview show, The Colbert Report, where the pseudo host Colbert was discussing Bill O’Reilly’s books with MSNBC’s extremist, ranter Chris Matthews.

O’Reilly has penned two books about assassinated historical figures, one titled Killing Lincoln and another titled Killing Kennedy. So, naturally, Matthews hoped that we’d soon be seeing a book about killing Bill O’Reilly!

Now, there is the more caring, more adult, more tolerant left we’re used to, eh?

You know what is really sad, though? Believe it or not, Chris Matthews was once a respected author and journalist. Seriously. He was. Now he’s just a clown that no one can take seriously.

Now, imagine how the left-media would have lost its tiny collective mid if a conservative or Republican had gone on the air and hoped to see some lefty killed?

The story would have crowded out tales of the shutdown in minutes.

Geraldo was scheduled to speak at an upcoming October panel at Duquesne University to talk about the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination.

Duquesne is a Catholic institution and found it wasn’t amused at the 70-year-old’s lack of modesty by posting a nearly nude photo of himself for all to see.

I am greatly encouraged by the successful results of the previous two years and look forward to cultivating our next group of junior reporters.”

“The Ailes Junior Reporters Program gives participants the opportunity to learn all aspects of newsgathering including shooting, producing and editing stories, as well as on-camera reporting,” Fox says of the program in a press release. “Additionally, hands-on guidance during each step of the process is offered from both FNC management and the network’s seasoned journalists, including Shepard Smith, Bill Hemmer and Harris Faulkner.”

Todd Starnes of Fox News reports that Facebook blocked his postings because he posted support for the National Rifle Association (NRA), Paula Deen, Chick-Fil-A, and Jesus on his page.

The blocked comment was a snarky commentary on several news stories. It ended up eliciting hundreds of replies and likes before Facebook deleted it leaving a warning message.

In place of Starnes’ page, Facebook posted a message that read, “We removed something you Posted, We removed this from Facebook because it violates our community standards.

“I’m about as politically incorrect as you can get,” read Starnes’ Facebook entry before it was deleted. “I’m wearing an NRA ball cap, eating a Chick-fil-A sandwich, reading a Paula Deen cookbook and sipping a 20-ounce sweet tea while sitting in my Cracker Barrel rocking chair with the Gather Vocal Band singing ‘Jesus Saves’ on the stereo and a Gideon’s Bible in my pocket. Yessir, I’m politically incorrect and happy as a june bug.”

Facebook has since admitted that it was a “mistake” for blocking Starnes’ Facebook page and has re-instated his access and posting privileges.

Facebook sent Starnes a message explaining its actions.

A new poll on newspapers and television news shows that Americans’ confidence in the news industry continues to erode in this era of mass communications, reaching a low not seen since 2007.

The Gallup polling firm finds that trust in newspapers has fallen to 23 percent. This is down from 25 percent in 2012 and 28 percent in 2011.

The previous low was recorded in 2007 when trust in newspapers reached 22 percent.

Trust in newspapers has undergone steady erosion since its 1979 high of 51 percent, Gallup reports.

Television news fares no better in the estimation of those polled by Gallup. Trust in TV news tied that of newspapers with 23 percent saying they trust TV news sources. This is down from a 1993 high of 46 percent–when Gallup first began asking about it.
