(KCEN) -- There is new information about the September terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya that left four Americans dead.
A senior U.S. intelligence official says there was a 25 minute gap between the initial call for help from the consulate and officers' arrival at the U.S. mission.
Officials say the officers used those 25 minutes to get weapons loaded into vehicles, while others were on the phone trying to get local "friendly" militias with heavier weapons to help.
This information comes in response to a Fox report last Friday that said officers on the ground were ordered to stand down during the attack.
But U.S. officials say that's simply not true.
