Quick Takes: News You May Have Missed

The New York Times reported that when he assumed his office, John Podesta would focus on executive orders and so-called climate change issues along with Obamacare.

Heather Podesta served as the lobbyist for a wind-power firm that was awarded a $135.8 million loan guarantee from the Department of Energy in 2011. The company is Brookfield Asset Management. It boasts a board of nine directors that includes New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s long-term girlfriend.

 

 

CIA Agents Ready To Fight In Benghazi Were Told To ‘Wait’

CIA agents on the ground in Benghazi testified to lawmakers that they were loaded into vehicles and ready to aid the besieged U.S. special mission on Sept. 11, 2012, but were told by superiors to “wait,” a congressman privy to the testimony has revealed.

This new account seems to contradict claims made by the State Department’s Accountability Review Board, or ARB, which states that the response team one mile away in the CIA annex was “not delayed by orders from superiors.”

Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-Ga.), head of the House intelligence subcommittee that interviewed the CIA employees, explained that while there was no “stand-down order,” there was a disagreement at the nearby CIA annex about how quickly to respond.

Westmoreland revealed that some CIA agents wanted to storm the Benghazi compound immediately, but they were told to wait while the agency collected intelligence on the ongoing attack.

“Some CIA security contractors disagreed with their bosses and wanted to move more quickly,” the Associated Press reported, drawing from Westmoreland’s comments.

At least one of those security contractors, a former U.S. Army Ranger, was told to “wait” at least twice, and he argued with his security team leader, according to his testimony, related by Westmoreland.

The narrative of “orders to wait” seems to directly contradict Page 23 of the ARB report. The report said “the Annex response team departed its compound in two vehicles at approximately 2205 local.”

“The departure of the Annex team was not delayed by orders from superiors,” claimed the ARB.
