Witnesses say a stand-down order was given to prevent military aid from getting to Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 while the diplomatic compound and CIA annex were under attack, says House Select Committee on Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy.

"The best I can do is tell you what the witnesses say, and then you can decide who you think is more credible," Gowdy told Boston Herald Radio.

"There were no assets that could have gotten there" to save the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens and Sean Smith, he said, but said it is an "eminently fair" question as to whether assets could have arrived in time to save two other victims, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.

Gowdy's comments were made the same day Pentagon official Jeremy Bash testified before the committee, the Washington Examiner reports. Bash was author of a email in 2012 that showed that military forces were "spinning" and ready to go to Benghazi if approved.
