Petraeus Tosses Obama Under Bus: CIA Says No One at Any Level Told Anybody Not to Help Those in Need

The CIA refused to be the fall guys for Benghazi today.
The spokesman said, “No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need.”

The Weekly Standard says this points the blame at the White House.

So who in the government did tell “anybody” not to help those in need? Someone decided not to send in military assets to help those Agency operators. Would the secretary of defense make such a decision on his own? No.

It would have been a presidential decision. There was presumably a rationale for such a decision. What was it? When and why—and based on whose counsel obtained in what meetings or conversations—did President Obama decide against sending in military assets to help the Americans in need?
