CIA Agents in Benghazi confirm "Stand down" report and reveal 2011 CIA memo not to expect air support

According to a story published by AP entitled "CIA Benghazi team clash led to `stand down' report" in testimony before a House Intelligence subcommittee, chaired by Rep. Lynn Westmorland (R-Ga.), a team of CIA agents who were in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, confirmed that they were indeed told to stand down twice when they tried to go to the US mission when it came under attack and that a CIA memo circulated in August 2011 had made it clear that they should not expect any air support if they came under attack. This testimony confirms earlier reports even though the article itself claims that it confirms the Obama administration's denials that there was a stand down order.
