One of the many smears about Benghazi is that the CIA told Tyrone Powers to "stand down" and NOT give any assistance to Ambassador Stevens. Below I noted that Jake Tapper tweeted otherwise and now I have the full quote:
President Obama Begs Off Answering Whether Americans in Benghazi Were Denied Requests for Help

In response, CIA spokesperson Jennifer Youngblood said, “We can say with confidence that the Agency reacted quickly to aid our colleagues during that terrible evening in Benghazi. Moreover, no one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate. In fact, it is important to remember how many lives were saved by courageous Americans who put their own safety at risk that night-and that some of those selfless Americans gave their lives in the effort to rescue their comrades.”

Two on bipartisan war crimes and imperial warmongering, from Benghazi to Yemen.
