Lots of the reporting now, everywhere but at Fox, is filling in the back story that various networks neglected. Fortunately, Fox is pushing on and gathering more information that will appear in other networks' reporting days down the road, if ever. The summary is that Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, who were posted at the CIA support facility known as the Annex, a mile away from the embassy, asked for support and permission to relieve the embassy on two occasions. Both times they were stiff-armed, but the second time they went ahead anyway, relieving the staff who were still at the embassy and Sean Smith's lifeless body. When they departed for the embassy again, after Libyan forces said they could no longer hold the perimeter, as we know from earlier Fox reporting, their vehicle was hit with grenades and machine gun fire and two tires were blown out. They drove most of the way back to the annex on the rims, passing over a boulevard divider on the way, and then were once again attacked once they reached the annex.
They once again asked for air support. There was a gunner who was painting the militia mortar team firing on the embassy for any support aircraft, but there was none forthcoming. That team fired the rounds that landed on the embassy roof, where Doherty and Woods were defending the Annex, that killed them.
When the bodies were flown back to Andrews, to give the President an opportunity to bloviate and the Secretary of State a chance to blame it all on the internet video that the administration had nothing to do with, the Vice-President asked Tyrone Woods' father whether his son had always had cue-ball sized nuts. The father's recounting of the event is both infuriating and heartbreaking. You can listen to it here, if you haven't heard it already.
The Senate has scheduled a closed session to investigate who knew what when . . . after the elections.
Meanwhile, the Osama bin Laden raid movie produced by folks to whom the White House gave special access to classified information is scheduled to open two days before Election Day; it is presently in the process of being re-edited to give President Gutsy Call a larger role. Mitt Romney, according to Breitbart.com, has been cast as the domestic villain of the piece, one of many inaccuracies that Democrats somehow don't seem so concerned about as they did with The Path to 9/11.
