Vote Tomorrow in Memory of Our Americans Killed in Benghazi

| Comments (1)

This last weekend, Patricia Smith, mother of Sean Smith, one of our four Americans murdered in Benghazi on September 11th, stated, “I believe that Obama murdered my son.  I firmly believe this.”  This grieving mom joins the criticisms of Charles Woods, father of Navy Seal Tyrone Woods, also killed on that terrible September night when he defied orders in an attempt to rescue his fellow Americans.  May they find comfort in the fact that so many of us join them, as well, in their criticism of this administration, waiting for answers that are still not forthcoming.

What has amazed and disgusted me over the weeks following that terrible attack in Libya are the leftwing pundits who have turned the deaths of these men into a partisan issue, circling their wagons around the president, insisting that he is not to be accused or indicted in this incident in any way.  Never mind that he is the commander-in-chief.  Never mind that he refuses to call this or any attack on Americans “terrorism” (evident yet again in interview footage 60 Minutes released today that they had withheld to protect their Obama, footage that joins the damning information that continues to trickle out, implicating this president’s role in failing to protect our people).  And never mind that the president couldn’t be bothered by the attack as it was happening, because he had more pressing campaign matters calling him to Vegas.  He and his found it easier simply to blame it on a YouTube video and trust America to swallow the story without question.

But we didn’t swallow the story, and now, no matter what happens tomorrow, this president and our great nation need to understand that what happened in Benghazi will not be forgotten with election day.  We the people will not forget those four dead Americans, nor, despite what this adminstration and their media propogandists are insisting, will we see their deaths as a conservative issue.  Rest assured that if one of those lost Americans were the child of one of the dems working so hard to insulate this president and hold him blameless, that democrat would instead be calling for information just as loudly as those of us are on the right.  But to those of us demanding that information, to those of us demanding accountability, they are all our children.  We grieve for them and seek the truth about their deaths, no matter who happens to be president, no matter which party is in power — even if that in some way implicates the commander-in-chief whose only job is to keep our nation safe.

So remember those four Americans tomorrow — Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, Chris Stevens and Glen Doherty — as you cast your ballot.  Remember that there is still so much we don’t know about that night.  We know the events were horrific.  We know there was blood and fear and heroism.  And we know this White House from the first moments has tried to conceal the truth from us.   Armed as we are with this knowledge, we will not stop pursuing that truth, no matter who wins the White House tomorrow.

    I’m not saying this to be cocky, because I really have no idea what is going to happen tomorrow, but I must say that I feel like a little kid and tomorrow is Christmas Day. I, too, have been looking forward to this day for a long time, regardless of the “presents” I may or may not get.
