Mother of Slain Benghazi Official: “Obama Murdered My Son”

Barack Obama said the murder of four US heroes including the US ambassador in Benghazi was “not optimal.”

The mother of murdered State Department employee Sean Patrick Smith told reporters this week,
“I believe that Obama murdered my son.”
U-T San Diego reported:

A father and a mother used the word “murder.” A brother said he won’t second-guess decisions made in the heat of battle.

The families of three Americans killed in the Sept. 11 U.S. consulate attack in Benghazi, Libya, are offering widely different reactions to recent reports that U.S. personnel issued several requests for help that were turned down.

Patricia Smith, the mother of slain State Department employee Sean Patrick Smith, is now blaming President Barack Obama for her son’s death.

“I believe that Obama murdered my son,” she said Thursday from the living room of her Clairemont home. “I firmly believe this.”

Patricia Smith, who voted for Obama in 2008 at the insistence of her son, said reporting by Fox News is the basis for much of her belief that Obama is ultimately responsible for her son’s death. She said Sean, who went to Mission Bay High School but lived abroad, was a fervent supporter of the president.

Smith’s view echoes that of Charles Woods, father of Tyrone Woods, the 41-year-old former Navy SEAL from Imperial Beach who died fighting in Benghazi.

Charles Woods appeared on Fox News shows over the weekend to denounce decisions made by U.S. officials during the Libya attack.

“I’m a retired attorney, and I know that these actions legally do not constitute murder. But in my mind the people in the White House, all of them who have authority to send in reinforcements to prevent what they knew was going to be the death of my son, are guilty of murdering my son,” Woods said Sunday on Fox’s Sean Hannity show.

  • Hey, where are the 30 people whose lives were saved by Tyrone Woods in Benghazi? Why no interviews/stories?

    I’m sure Maureen Dowd will afford Patricia Smith the absolute moral authority that she bestowed upon Cindy Sheehan, right?

    The problem starts with the idiots who voted the evil lying b*stard Obama into Office. There was plenty of good reason not to vote such a liar and deceptive man who hung around with fellow socialists into the Whitehouse. People can say that they were fooled or bought into Obama’s rhetoric, but honestly, it didn’t take massive brains to figure that the man had absolutely no prior experience running a single thing, except voting ‘present’. No one in their right man who hire such a man to run their own business, but they had no problem putting such an evil dimwit into a position to run the largest economy in the world.

    Please excuse the detail, but . . .

    The only thing we’re supposed to know for sure is that things in Benghazi went South on 9/11, 2012. But info recently acquired reveals a picture that goes beyond bad security and firefights: it exposes the true nature and mission in Benghazi, and the shameful reason for our failure to extract patriots during a hellacious nine hours.

    Lies and false scenarios have been (and are being) provided by our administration officials to hide the covert actions that took place in Libya, Syria, Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon. The objective — to secretly arm anti-Assad rebels in Syria by funneling arms from Libya to Syria via Turkey, with minor destinations that include Jordan and Lebanon.

    A Consulate office in Benghazi? There is really no such office there. Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Dougherty and Tyrone Woods died at a CIA operations center, located in Benghazi — one of the largest centers in the region — that served as the logistics headquarters for arms and weapons being shipped out of the post-Qaddafi Libya.

    The U.S. government says that Stevens was involved in securing and destroying weapons once under the control of Qaddafi. True, to a point. But, the real operation was more complex: The weapons destroyed were not operational. The working weapons were actually separated and transported to holding facilities for their eventual use in Syria.

    Russia knew about all of this, and warned the U.S. not to engage in the destabilization of Syria. Doing so would endanger Russia’s national security interests. Getting rid of Assad, and replacing him with a Muslim Brotherhood-led regime would likely lead to Islamic chaos across the region.

    As such, these weapons could be used in a “false flag” type of operation–one that could make Assad look like he’s using them to stay in power; then the international community would look at this false picture as a final reason to remove Assad. Turkey met with Stevens to tell him that this set-up was no longer a secret: The Russians knew about it; and what’s worse the Russians informed their buddies, the Iranians.

    On the night of the Benghazi attack, our administration said that the make-up of the attackers and the level of coordination were such that we could not deploy military assets (just an hour or two away by air) to rescue Stevens and the others at the CIA operations center in their time of need. Panetta said that “…the basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on…” Bull-hockey!

    Panetta and the highest levels of this administration knew exactly what we were doing over there, and knew that the secret operation was compromised. They knew, or had reason to believe, that the attack was being conducted at a state or national level in response to our covert operation in Libya and the arming the anti-Assad Syrian opposition.

    Those “foreign accents” we heard about (from the Libyan witnesses who there that night) were Iranian. Do you think that Russia and Iran were going to sit by and do nothing about “Fast and Furious-Part II”? After all, Syria is their best friend in the region.

    As the White House and other agencies monitored intelligence in real-time, they faced a big problem. They didn’t know exactly where all of the attack teams were, but knew they were there — based on all the signal communication intercepts. All of that info added up to a likely Black Hawk down scenario waiting to happen, AND the very real possibility of exposing the gun-running operation.

    SOLUTION — Do nothing; and invent a cover-up — fast.
    Hence, the infamous YouTube video story was repeated for weeks.

    From the day of attack in Benghazi, Iran has been engaged in a multi-level attack on U.S. and NATO assets across the board: embassies, bombing and cyber attacks. We saw at least thirty demonstrations in the mid-east on the 9-11, 2012. All of this was the fallout from an arms and weapons smuggling operation, which was misunderstood (and went unreported) by the Western media.

    Russia has moved their contingent of S-400 missiles into much of Syria in anticipation of NATO establishing an air cap over Syria. A ten-mile buffer zone along Syria’s border has been created for Syrian refugees, but it also acts as a catalyst for the encroachment into Syrian territory. It sets the stage for further incremental advancement and erosion of Syrian land.

    It is also of critical importance to note that last weekend, Russia completed large-scale exercises of their Strategic Nuclear Forces under President Vladimir Putin. These were the first such nuclear exercises conducted since the fall of the Soviet Union.

    World War III is at our doorstep; and we don’t know anything about it.
    We’re chumps.

    But even a chump knows that the abandonment and sacrifice of American blood and treasure to cover-up criminal acts, National endangerment and potential war is — treason.

    What Has Happened To The Leadership Of America’s Armed Forces? When Did The Idea Of America Die? _ Update


    Yesterday a commenter at America’s Watchtower by the name of Sonny said this:

    Latest news is the 3 generals involved with decisions in Benghazi have stated that “we didn’t have enough intel to go in”. The general has stated that they can’t just ‘blindly’ send in troops into a situation that they don’t have full details on….

    I have not been able to find a source about what these three Generals said. If it is true, those three Generals should resign immediately and they should be Court Martialed for dereliction of duty. Who were these three Generals? Was one of them General Dempsey?

    My heart breaks for the families of those who died in Benghazi. I am ashamed of the leadership of this administration. In the opinion of this humble observer, the Secretary of State, the Director of the CIA, the Secretary of Defense, and the Commander-in-Chief should all resign in shame. Where was our Commander-in-Chief? We are being told he was not aware of any requests for help in Benghazi. Really? Why was he not aware? Was he not in the WH Situation Room? If not, why not?

    What message is the high command of our Armed Forces and the Commander-in-Chief sending to the men and women they expect to protect America’s interests? The message they are sending is if you get in trouble and we don’t have perfect information about your situation, you will be left on your own because we won’t send any kind of reinforcements. When did the idea of America die?

    Obama has been carrying that word around ever since he was old enough to know who he was, and what he wasn’t.

    Sometimes the truest feelings and deepest sentiments just fall out of the mouth.
