A tie breaking developments related to the Ben -- terror attack now Fox News has exclusively learned that multiple requests for back up.
Were made by the former navy seal who died at the CIA and -- and those requests war in fact denied now.
All of this information was obtained by Fox News.
From sources who wore on the ground that tragic day in Ben Ghazi now here's how this all played out.
-- former navy seal Tyrone woods was at the CIA -- When he heard that shots had in fact been fired at the consulate where ambassador Chris Stevens was along with his -- Not once but twice woods and others at the -- requested from their higher ups permission to go and help those under attack.
They were told both times to quote stand down.
And according to our sources woods and five other American heroes ignore those orders they went to the consulate anyway.
They have evacuated those -- who are still in harm's way.
And they search for the ambassador but could not find him.
Now the group later returned to the CIA and -- and requested for a third time military assistance and again they were denied by this administration.
Now earlier today Fox's own Jennifer Griffin explained in detail how these heroes could have in fact and -- it.
Formed separate mortars were fired at the compound one of those mortars killed -- -- -- the -- -- directly.
Another one hits there was a machine gun position on the roof -- round -- woods was hit at that time.
But what I'm told by sources who work in being -- the night of the attack.
That there -- they did have laser pointers on the mortar fire team and if special operations Specter gunships had been sent ten and some were on standby.
And teams -- on standby in -- and now I just a few hour's flight away.
That they could have possibly.
Prevented those mortars that struck the compound they felt that that that help.
Was not sent when they requested it.
-- tyra woods risked his military career he risked his life and ultimately gave his life.
Ignoring orders from his superiors to help save the lives of others and what did he get in return when he asked our government for help that was watching in real time.
Nothing and the CIA is rejecting the notion that request for help or denied by them now according to a spokesman quote.
We can say with confidence that the agency.
Reacted quickly to -- our -- story that terrible evening in Ben -- Now moreover no one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need.
Now claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate.
And today earlier during a local interview President Obama did what he always does he dodged the question listen -- this.
Where the Americans under attack at the console and -- Ghazi Libya denied requests for help during that attack.
Well look -- election as on the under -- -- for brave Americans.
Getting killed and us wanting to find out exactly what happened Beazer folks who served.
Under me that I had -- To some very dangerous places nobody wants to find out more what happened the night but we want to make sure that we get -- right particularly because I've made a commitment.
To the families impacted as well -- people were gonna bring most.
Most of justice.
Right now moments ago I spoke with the father of this American hero -- woods to get reaction of these developments in incredible interview.
Here's what he had to say.
We have learned so much in the aftermath of this attack.
-- And you know we've learned that the ambassador first requested security it was denied.
We learned that that while they were under attack.
That they requested security and none was forthcoming.
And we learned that they were watching this in the State Department -- land -- there watching this in real time so everybody knew what was going on and a one.
But it -- right exactly.
When I went back to Washington DC.
Open the bodies were funny and I knew that something was strategy it just.
-- which is obvious that that.
Something was wrong with this picture and in my mind I question.
You know this was obviously a long drawn out -- apple.
While I was there are no immediate air support said he had.
That would've saved the lives of not just the other thirty people but also the light let literally was an American hero.
Now it's come out.
The police for help or make.
Not just by -- -- Other individuals but also my my -- And that.
These we weren't turned down why the White House and what about what if you don't ever retire -- returning.
And I know that these actions we legally did not constitute murder we put that in my mind that the people in the White House is what all of that.
Well who had authority -- Disband it and reinforcements.
To prevent what they knew it was going to be the -- in the Bible that we are built in part guilty of murdering my son.
There's new information that came out this morning and -- -- sign on to find.
A couple of different occasions requested information.
Could go to the aid of those thirty people who are being attacked.
And on at least two -- those first occasions.
He was told stay where your -- let them die.
And -- -- not surprise me.
That might turn that dissipate orders in order to save American lives that's the type of American hero he was.
Let me is so after he was told to stand down as I understand that they award numerous other.
Pleas for help but -- your son actually is I understand rescued many people and got them out of the consulate is that true.
You know one of the real touching -- thank god was with -- and -- I won't mention her name that I received an email.
From someone who says your son's sacrifice save my life.
And he'd save more than one -- And that's the type of man he was that's the -- that -- leadership the military need.
So -- if he would've Obey that order to stand down rather than help the ambassadors team that person's telling you there wouldn't be alive today.
That is correct.
And then many other people as well.
Your -- first got involved was told to stand down after they heard shots at approximately 9:40 PM.
Now as I understand it it wasn't until about 4 AM the next day.
That your son after he had rescued -- the people was still fighting in this attack.
And it was then that he took on mortar fire.
-- that's my understanding her.
-- powers of the cowards in the White -- we're watching something they knew it was going to.
Potentially kill those thirty people that potentially kill my.
And they -- confused.
It is that even though they had a moral duty to -- and support.
They chose not this is not the way the field operate this field are honorable units.
And I was honorable by this so pain.
The powers in the White House that's all -- not direction if those lives.
Your son was told to stand down here's a navy seal -- all the time and training an effort.
He risks his his military career risks his life for seven full hours rescues all these people.
Multiple requests throughout the entire period go it's being watched in real time.
And the -- then and nobody sends any help.
I I can't fathom this.
And then we're told the president goes out there for two weeks and couldn't admit that this is that a terrorist attack.
Why do you think that he tried to blame it on this video or denied that it was a terror attack.
You know unfortunately -- aren't we have a generation of liars.
Who have no moral background.
My son's sacrifice and his moral courage and his moral strength.
We'll encourage our next generation to be completely different.
That we will change your direction that we will -- up in new generation.
Shouldn't American heroes such as -- -- We'll have more courage and who are not -- Too many people in authority are now -- I know you met the president and you met Hillary Clinton.
When they had this service.
We -- bet that's correct dead Enders -- of course.
Dangerous therefore it makes you said the president couldn't look you in the guy -- -- was like shaking hands with a dead fish.
That's exactly right yeah.
And and sold that -- felt he could look you in the -- and that basically.
He felt no empathy and you said the same thing pretty much about Hillary Clinton.
What happened was he he came through there and after everyone else had been you know in the -- circulated.
And he -- -- -- picture my hand it.
You know I wanted to do more than to -- -- aspect had to put my armor grander shouldered -- to the world than physical want.
Not a major -- -- small and and you know retired who -- that a powerful forward to a more just so poignant little -- aren't sorry.
You know and I could tell by his forehead she was -- sorry -- feel like a little chip it's pulled by the teacher -- apologize -- Johnny out on the flight there.
And what it looked at -- His status was pointed towards me that he couldn't look -- he was looking over my shoulder can't like -- -- -- that it.
Correctness -- literally like shaking hands with the dead -- And I did not believe him at all isn't this part is being sorry and now we understand why.
Was he one of those cowards that within the White House watching my son being murdered -- On TV and refusing to be put -- maybe that's the question.
That he will probably not have the courage to answer publicly but I would like to personally know that answer and one of these days.
The whole I'm sure that we will have that answer.
It is it is the hardest thing to lose any pay child.
And learning about the heroics of your son.
Are beyond inspiring he put everything on the line.
You know we wanna use of biblical quote no greater love have the -- to lay down his life for somebody else your son lay down their life for others.
So thank you very much -- And I really appreciate the work that -- doing.
I appreciate your time thank you for being -- Probably the most unbelievable interview -- ever had coming up congressman Darrell ice.
