But who believes it? The story is coming from Fox News, who interviewed the three people who were actually there - something that the Obama administration has desperately tried to keep concealed by forbidding them from testifying before Congress.

Top CIA officer in Benghazi delayed response to terrorist attack

A U.S. security team in Benghazi was held back from immediately responding to the attack on the American diplomatic mission on orders of the top CIA officer there, three of those involved told Fox News’ Bret Baier.

Their account gives a dramatic new turn to what the Obama administration and its allies would like to dismiss as an “old story” – the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

Speaking out publicly for the first time, the three were security operators at the secret CIA annex in Benghazi – in effect, the first-responders to any attack on the diplomatic compound.
