Father of Slain SEAL: Wants to Know Who Made the Decision Not to Save My Son? Lars Larson

Mr. Woods, the father Tyrone Woods, who was killed in the 9/11 terrorist attack at the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, reveals details of meeting Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton at the memorial service for the slain Americans at Andrews Air Force Base only days after the attack. And, in a recent radio appearance, Woods publicly questions who made the call not to send in back-up forces to possibly save his son’s life, as well as the three other Americans killed in Benghazi (which includes the American ambassador to Libya).

When [Obama] came over to our little area” at Andrew Air Force Base, says Woods, “he kind of just mumbled, you know, ‘I’m sorry.’ His face was looking at me, but his eyes were looking over my shoulder like he could not look me in the eye. And it was not a sincere, ‘I’m really sorry, you know, that you’re son died,’ but it was totally insincere, more of whining type, ‘I’m sorry.’”

Woods says that shaking President Obama’s hands at his son’s memorial service was “like shaking hands with a dead fish.”

“It just didn’t feel right,” he says of his encounter with the commander in chief. “And now
that it’s coming out that apparently the WH situation room was watching our people die in real time, ( now we learn from 2 drones) as this was happening,” Woods says, he wants answers on what happened—and why there was no apparent effort to save his son’s life.

“Well, this is what Hillary did,” Woods continues. “She came over and, you know, did the same thing—separately came over and talked with me. I gave her a hug, shook her hand. And she did not appear to be one bit sincere—at all. And you know, all she mentioned was that thing about, we’re going to have that person arrested and prosecuted that did the video. That was the first time I had even heard about anything like that.”

“Apparently even the State Department had a live stream ( 2 drones we now learn) and was aware of their calls for help. My son wasn’t even there. He was at a safe house about a mile away. He got the distress call; he heard them crying for help; that’s why he and Glen risked their lives to go that extra mile just to take care of the situation. And I’m sure that wasn’t the only one received that distress call—you know, come save our lives … I’m sure that other people in the military, in the State Department, in the White House, received that same call that he would receive. And I’m sure that most military people would jump at the chance … to protect that life [and] not leave anyone behind.”

Woods made clear that he isn't "mad," but that he wants to the "truth" to be told because he feels " abandoned."

Woods says he was told by military officials that the military could have "come above [the area] and completely carpeted area," and therefore saved the officials in Benghazi, Libya. But that someone gave the command for the American military not to save the lives of the Americans under attack.

"When I heard, you know, that there's a very good chance that the White House as well as other members of the military knew what was going on and obviously someone had to say, don't go rescue them. Because every person in the military--their first response [would be], we're going to go rescue them. We need to find out who it was that gave that command--do not rescue them." Woods will be on with Judge Jeanne this weekend.

The mother of the other seal was told to just fill out a from to learn what happened to her son.and was not allowed to view the body of her dead son. Impeach, fire and many need to be prosecuted for dereliction of duty and relieved of command.

____________________________________

You have to wonder, since we now know the White House watched the drones for 7 hours as it was happening --- and did nothing to call in military help stationed in Italy (could've been there in 1 hour);

Rand Paul said: Where the h*** were the Marines? Why in the h*** did you send them home?

Those are just a few of my questions for Barack Obama about the tragic situation in Libya where four Americans - including our U.S. Ambassador - were murdered by radical jihadists.

I’m outraged that the 16-person security team assigned to protect our Ambassador was sent home, and there were no uniformed Marines guarding him.

I’m outraged that the DC-3 plane that could have helped get people out of the country was taken away before the attacks.
---------------------------------------------------

There were 17,000 (some were marines) and other personnel guarding the embassy in Iraq;

There was supposed to be a plane stationed at the embassy in Libya to get them out if they were in danger. It was taken from them on May 4th;

16 armed personnel had been there -- and requested to stay, because they knew the ambassador was in danger. Who ordered them out?

Why did the White House leave the gay ambassador unprotected (remove his protection) and watch his murder?

Why did Obama send a gay man to a country that kills gays as part of their religion?


Obama mentions his "muslim faith": http://youtu.be/bMUgNg7aD8M

Did he set him up to have him killed because muslims over there kill gays?

He told the emmisary to Russia he'd have more flexibility after his re-election; and he bowed to the king of Saudi Arabia; will he also use "more flexibility" in allowing the muslim terrorists to harm and kill gays here -- with impunity?

Did he influence the Democratic Party to let an Imam pray that sharia law will be instituted in the US? -- which calls for killing of all gays and slavery of all women? We have been betrayed.
This is not a political question. It is a question of murder. Justice needs to be done. Everyone needs to be warned.

Please don't allow your ignorant<a href="http://uvxvfunfzc.com"> cmenmots</a> to supercede the urgency of this illness! There IS a Men's Awareness Day it is September 27th of each year. You probably will have a bigoted response to this as well, emphasis;Gay Men. Did you Google to seek out the date or events for Mens Awareness? There's enough Stigma and Ignorance don't contribute. Women are highly affected over 90,000 have been lost thus far! Be a part of the solution,because if you are NOT, UR the Problem! Judy Calhoun, OMHA-KY

DonI agree with all your points as far as why we have Gay Pride vs why we don't have Straight Pride.However what is the msaesge we are REALLY putting out there?EVERY Pride parade I have ever been to- has floats full of naked men (and women) every pride parade I have ever been to has S&M; floats Straight people get into S&M; as well- but the more conservative straight people may not realise (nor accept) this fact- and use it against us to claim we are all sick perverts.Such floats have nothing to do with being gay but it does lead to MISINTERPRETATION which is simply used against us.When the pride parade organizaers start insisting that floats etc. depict true GAY Pride, and not simply pushing OTHER agendas which will be misleading as to what it means to be GAY then I will agree that we should have gay pride celebrations. But, as it is now I think the point has been lost and society sees us in negative ways because of the mixed msaesges these parade actually give out. http://tznflimhum.com [url=http://thkieddzvti.com]thkieddzvti[/url] [link=http://oyiozgelwl.com]oyiozgelwl[/link]

報告原文 However, there is theoretical<a href="http://wwobndb.com"> pntaotiel</a> for BBV transmission to occur if blood from one client gets into an open cut, abrasion or wound on another client using the sametank. While the risk of BBV transmission via this route is likely to be minimised due to the dilution factor in the water, there are no useful models corresponding to this situation.

Know what insurance QuotesChimp want when deciding which agent to do business with. This means understanding what insurance value means: the price, quality of coverage, and the service the agent and company offer. Different agents and companies may offer more attractive prices but be weaker in services such as quick and efficient handling of claims or long-term commitment to insurance. If price is most important to you, buy primarily on price. But at least be aware of all options so you can make informed buying decisions based on your personal needs.
