I saw the sister of American killed in Libya on CNN and she had nothing against Romney talking about his brother. She disagreed with her mother.

she is not a mother. Anyone with common sense would be offended by some sleazeball exploiting her son's death.

I think she's from Woburn, which means she remembers the "Romney Years", and probably not fondly.
Her daughter (the sister mentioned above), is too young to remember the Romney years.

Perhaps, she wouldn't be a grieving mother had the Apologist and Panderer in Chief done his job. Barry has blood on his hands because campaigning, on the tax payer's dime, was more important than attending his daily briefings.

And he sure didn't mind using the SEALs when OBL was eliminated for political grandstanding.

Fck him.

Might I add, the Apologist and Panderer in Chief sure didn't mind using the Benghazi incident in his speech before the UN and knowing damn well that it was a terrorist attack and not some movie. He failed to mention that due to his failed foreign policy, the middle east is destabilized. Then, he was off to go be on the View and further covering up the truth of the matter.

The widow of the other SEAL understood fully what the Apologist and Panderer in Chief willfully turns a blind eye to when she stated at her husband's funeral, "Rid the world of those savages. I repeat, rid the world of those savages."

"Intelligence and Special Operations forces are furious and frustrated at how President Obama and those in positions of authority have exploited their service for political advantage. Countless leaks, interviews and decisions by the Obama Administration and other government officials have undermined the success of our Intelligence and Special Operations forces and put future missions and personnel at risk.

The unwarranted and dangerous public disclosure of Special Forces Operations is so serious -- that for the first time ever -- former operators have agreed to risk their reputations and go 'on the record' in a special documentary titled "Dishonorable Disclosures." Its goal is to educate America about serious breaches of security and prevent them from ever happening again."

“Since gaining the majority in 2011, House Republicans have voted to reduce embassy security funding by approximately half a billion dollars below the amounts requested by the Obama Administration,” the memo reads.“Although the Senate has been able to restore a small portion of these funds, the final appropriations enacted by Congress in the previous two Fiscal Years have been far below the amounts requested by the Administration for embassy security, and far below the levels enacted in Fiscal Year 2010, the last year Democrats controlled the House.”

It's absolutely appalling that the ultra-liberal media is preying upon a grieving mother of a fallen hero in an attempt to dig Barry out of the hole he has dug for himself.

It just goes to show the integrity of the left and the depths that they will sink to for that monster.

Obama Politicizes The Sacrifices Of The SEALs—Again
9-20-12

Politics: The White House claims two ex-SEALs killed in Libya were inept security guards. The truth? They volunteered for duty and died heroes. But that doesn't serve an Obama political purpose, now does it?

According to the Obama administration's United Nations ambassador, Susan Rice, the two former Navy SEALs who died defending the Benghazi consulate from attack this month, Tyrone Woods, 41, and Glen Doherty, 42, were State Department employees on the consulate's security detail when they somehow got overpowered by a mob that was enraged by an anti-Islamic film.

That's questionable, given that the consulate endured a sustained paramilitary-style attack that left the consulate aflame, killed U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens and diplomat Sean Smith, and ended with a desperate trail of bloody handprints across the consulate walls.

"Tragically, two of the four Americans who were killed were there providing security. That was their function," Rice told ABC News' Jake Tapper in an interview earlier this week.

Hold on. It now comes to light that they weren't State Department employees and they weren't there to protect the consulate. They bravely did it on their own.

In reality, they were two contractors working on a separate mission — with at least one tracking down missing shoulder-fired missiles, according to ABC News.

"Woods and Doherty weren't part of the detail, nor were they personally responsible for the ambassador's security, but they stepped into the breach when the attacks occurred and their actions saved the lives of others," an unnamed U.S. official told the Washington Guardian.

So as the consulate was pummeled with mortar fire from an organized al-Qaida terrorist attack, the two men, with no preparation and no ground intelligence, just plain stepped forward without any obligation to do so, and died defending the U.S. after the non-U.S. contractors who were paid to do that ran away.

Such information ought to get out, because these men died heroes. They didn't have to be there, but they went anyway defending against a terrorist attack that can only be compared to the Alamo.

But the White House makes no such recognition.

That's because the two men's selfless act raises questions about how serious Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's State Department was about defending U.S. outposts from potential al-Qaida terror attacks.

Already a damning picture is building, given that the U.S. knew about an al-Qaida revenge threat following the killing of a Libyan terrorist in Pakistan, the Libyan government says it gave a three-day warning of an attack, Stevens himself expressed concern about being on an al-Qaida hit list, and Smith wrote in a computer bulletin board posting the chilling words "if we don't get killed tonight."

But if that picture of malfeasance doesn't fit the "narrative" of the Obama administration, then the sacrifice of the ex-SEALs gets covered up and they go out to history as bumblers.

It just goes to show the willingness of the Obama administration to politicize the patriotic missions of the SEALs to its own shameless ends.

The Obama administration has always sought to politicize the SEALs — from President Obama trying to make political hay out of the SEAL raid on bin Laden to win re-election, to his recent attempt to motivate his campaign staff in Las Vegas by comparing their electioneering to the ultimate sacrifice of the two former SEALs.

Now the Obama team is concealing what the two former SEALs really did and spinning their act as just that of helpless security guards.

Frankly, the SEALs deserve better.

Is there ever going to come a time when the patriotism of the SEALs is left out of politics? Not so long as Obama is president. To our president, patriotism is partisanship and partisanship is patriotism.

That's why what is happening here is, as challenger Mitt Romney has said, nothing but "a disgrace.""

Not to mention that he wants to give $450 million in aid to Egypt. But hey, it is just a drop in the bucket when you consider tax payers paid $1.4 billion for Obama’s ‘entertainment’ last year. Still, giving nearly half a billion dollars to the Muslim Brotherhood country in Egypt, especially after what happened on 9/11/2012. The New York Times reports on this (with their usual leftist spin.

The $450 million is deemed as ‘aid’ to Egypt.

And Mosni stating that America isn't an ally but a friend. Yep, friends always attack our embassies, desecrate the American flag and replace it with the black flag that AQ is known to use. Who could have imagined that when the Apologist and Panderer in Chief made the statement re Benghazi, he withheld that our embassy in Cairo had already been attacked.

Lest not forget the 75K for television spots in Pakistan when Barry did what he does best... grovel and pander to those who declare "Death to America" because after-all, as per his speech in Cairo just after he took office, when he apologized for America, "he doesn't look like other Presidents."

Obama's weakness is his weakness.

Believe you me, I know exactly what one "Snake eater"/75th Ranger Regiment veteran would have to say about the Apologist and Panderer in Chief in light of the recent turn of events. And it wouldn't be any flowery talk of popping open a coke and teaching the world to sing but I must digress. LOL

Indeed, America did. It wouldn't surprise me if he grew two more heads.

You all hear about the missing shoulder launch missiles ?

(I do believe they are heat tracking as well, might be wrong)

but they estimate, at the hearing in congress today, "10,000 to 20,000" of those unaccountable from the Libya invasion.

I guess they are capable of targeting civilian airplanes quite easily.
So a lot more people might be dieing from Obamas sloppy move getting rid of Qaddafi.

Anyway it ain't good at all.

Obama/Clinton team,Blame Ambassador for no
Security contingent,at Benghazi????

Current and former officials said the security choices in Benghazi reflected efforts by Mr. Stevens to maintain a low-profile security posture and show faith in Libya’s new leaders, despite questions about their ability to rein in heavily armed bands of militants. Officials say Mr. Stevens personally advised against having Marines posted at the embassy in Tripoli, apparently to avoid a militarized U.S. presence.

The security plan for the consulate also reflected confidence Mr. Stevens felt in a city where he worked for months with rebels battling Moammar Gadhafi’s rule. State Department officials said he didn’t consult with Washington before traveling to Benghazi, located in an area that has become notorious for its volatile mix of Islamist militancy and heavy weaponry.
