I have had it with the media! Today I cancelled my subscription to the LA Times after having searched the newspaper from top to bottom for any coverage on the Benghazi attack and investigation. The travesty and negligence of the media, excluding very few, in not staying on top of this story is criminal! Today I listened to probably the most extraordinary interview I have ever heard.
The father of Tyrone Woods, the Navy Seal who was killed in Benghazi along with Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Glen Doherty and Sean Smith, a man who prefaced his interview with an urgent statement that his coming forward was
not political but a need of his conscience.
Charles Woods came forward for the first time to speak and indict this administration for the murder of his son. Charles Woods is a lawyer, and a soft spoken man of integrity and honesty who forgives those that did not act appropriately. I quote him, “This is not about politics." This is about “honor, integrity, and sacrifice.”
He is only speaking out now, because so much more evidence is emerging which points to an immense cover-up.
That night within minutes of the first bullet being fired any person with security clearance could have pulled up on their computer live video stream of what was happening at the Consulate compound. There was a drone in the sky transmitting
live pictures. During that evening there were three requests for back-up security and military assistance all of which were denied by the State Department, the CIA and the White House. We now know for certain that Obama, Hillary Clinton, and other officials were in the Situation Room and that videos were being live streamed to them. They were monitoring, knowing, and denying assistance.
One to two hours away were F-16’s which would have probably saved all four lives. C130’s were available and we now know that they had lasers on targets (terrorists) with mortars, the same mortars that killed Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. A targeted strike could have easily taken out those mortars. However, I repeat, three different times requests for help were denied.
Not only were these requests denied, but, Tyrone Woods himself requested permission to leave the CIA building and go to the Consulate, one mile away, to try and rescue Ambassador Stevens and the others. He was told to “stand down” and
not leave his post. After another request, he decided to ignore orders and went to the consulate and rescued approximately 30 people, unfortunately Ambassador Stevens was not among them. He returned to the CIA building having rescued others and again requested assistance which was denied.
Tyrone Woods was a hero of extraordinary valor, as his father said; he was a man who had the “moral strength to do what is right”. His father also said that it would never occur to him to not act even though the consequence would have been to lose his job for disregarding orders. He did what was morally and ethically called for; not so, the White House, or this administration. “This is cowardice and lies and they are the murderers of my son.”
Within two hours of the onslaught of the attack Ansar al Sharia claimed to be the perpetrator. He related that on September 14th when the bodies of the four returned to the United States, Hillary Clinton promised Charles Woods that we are going to arrest the film maker. Film maker, really? He also stated, just like the mother of Sean Smith, that neither President Obama nor Hillary Clinton could look him straight in the eye, nor did he feel sincerity out of either of them.
I, as a Citizen of the United States, demand that President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton stand before the American people and explain their denial of the true events that transpired, before, during and after the events of 9/11/12.
