Slain SEAL’s father to Obama: ‘Better
to die the death of a hero than it is
to live the life of a coward’

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/29/2012 6:11:30 AM

In an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Geraldo at Large” Sunday night, Charles Woods, father of slain Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, said President Barack Obama did not do all he could to save the four Americans who were killed in a terrorist raid on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Obama should have reacted sooner, he said, because the consulate was American soil. “I was contacted by military personnel yesterday, who told me an interesting fact. And that is any consulate anywhere in the world is American soil,” Woods said.

Well, I just watched Hussein on Morning Joe call it a 'tragedy', not terrorism. No follow up questions from Joe or Mika, just let him tell his lies. 26 minutes into Morning Joe and no other mentions of Benghazi. Of course.

Why this father would ever appear on the Geraldo program is beyond me!!!

Missed this program; but Geraldo has been on the morning programs telling the couch crew how Obama did a great job on Bengazi.
What bull.

Geraldo has his Obama kneepads on.

Obama has 8 more days to stall this story from reaching critical mass.Of course there's a willful ignorance on the left that plays into it also.

Following the rules set up by Liberals during the Bush years, this father's "moral authority" is "absolute" and he must be listened to...
Yeah, and liberals I know took down the "dissent is the highest form of patriotism" signs as soon as Obama was elected. Now it's "unpatriotic" to question the president.
And they cannot see the double standard here.

''Obama should have reacted sooner, he said, because the consulate was American soil.''

I'm surprised Mr. Woods didn't already know this - he says he's an attorney. My son (in the military currently) was FUMING about this, on that very day! Even before we learned about the Ambassador and the other 3 who had died in Benghazi, my son was ranting about the Islamists scaling the wall of our Cairo embassy, and burning our flag! ''That's American soil over there!! Why are we doing nothing about this?!!''

Of course, he KNEW why..... my son's, these men's, C-in-C is, and always has been, practicing taqqiya. (Ref. Lucianne.com 10/28/12 - http://www.lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=709205)

Please someone show up at every Obama event with that quotation from Charles Woods. It should be plastered on billboards, bumper stickers, TV and radio ads.

The father must have had further thoughts. He said just previously, he forgives Obama and Obama needs to turn his life around. Maybe it finally dawned on him what a travesty his son's death was and how he was betrayed.

Please let us not let this man get away with this- it's not a forged certificate, nor hidden school records.

It was obvious on O'Reilly's program the other night geraldo was sporting kneepads for obama....

BUT -- the Navy Seal's Dad is a hero himself -- for having the courage to speak out loud what the whole country knows....

His son was a hero -- and his president REFUSED to send him help when he needed it....

Beware America -- Navy Seal Tyrone Woods -- is just the first of many who will be thrown under the bus for obama.

40 years ago, when I was flying missions over Laos and a pilot was shot down, we went to rescue him. Immediately! We didn't wait for more info or a clear assesment, we went to rescue a fellow American and sometimes we lost people doing it. But we had a real President and a real SecDef back then.

Christian forgiveness is something in the heart and soul. Mr. Woods is living his faith, bless him. And he is right when he "heaps hot coals upon" Obama's head with his forgiveness.

But the deadness in Obama's soul won't react to being told he's forgiven. My guess is that Obama is thinking "Who the hell is this guy to forgive ME?"

Obama won't give Mr. Woods or his son or the Bengazi deaths a second thought unless it improves his election chances. In fact, his election chances were the reason he refused them help in the first place; he can't have the appearance of unrest in the Muslim world during election time, can he? After all, O said that he personally improved relations in the Middle East.

Right. Evil, just evil...

My thoughts on this: I can imagine that Zippy didn't choose to defend the "consulate" because it really was NOT a consulate. It was the location of a CIA operation running weapons to Syrian rebels (read Al Quaeda) the Administration didn't want us to know about. Zippy doesn't dare say it wasn't a consulate, thus not meriting defense, because then he gets asked what we're really doing there. Christopher Stevens wasn't so much an ambassador but the local facilitator of Zippy's unauthorized support of Al Quaeda against (somewhat) civilized society.

It is Mr. Wood's prerogative as the father of a slain soldier to forgive his son's CIC who got him killed. However, looking how things are shaping up in the Middle East, I think that is not going to help Barack at all.

There will be war and millions will die because Barack Obama's Marxism refuses to perceive and deal with resurgent islamic imperialism. The blood of every innocent individual is on the hands of jihadis everywhere, but not without the helping hand given by useful idiots like the progressives, with Barack Obama at the head of them all.

The "instrument" wears a coward's mask. The "instrument" styles incompetence. The "instrument" is probably a clinically detached and lawless "sociopath." But the experts know his "artistic composition" is an operatic and complex and visionary "Le Destruction of America." Despite the fact that it stinkingly off key, and that he sings out of his behind, 47% of fans may even riot if he is not universally acclaimed as the new Caruso.

As a Christian, I understand that we are called upon to forgive all sinners, as our Lord has commanded us to.

Still, I think that Geraldo was his usual manipulative pro-Obama self and when he kissed Mr. Woods and said "I love you too.", I thought of the Juda's kiss.

Another point: Mr. Woods kept explaining how he "respected the office of the President of the United States". - Don't you agree that the "office" exists for an honorable Commander in Chief to inhabit as an elected leader of the people?

Mr. Obama has disgraced the office.

I don't know why y'all think the "American soil" aspect of the Benghazi debacle would have any resonance with Obama. He doesn't respect American sovereignty in the continental United States (for example, witness his supine deference to UN elections observers as superior to Texas law), why would anyone think Obama respects American sovereignty on small patches of soil in Egypt and Libya?

#19 makes an excellent point, and one I don't really doubt. However, I think the response of O was more generalized and automatic (hurt re-election...stand down). Also, if it was an AQ-helping operation, why would AQ attack? Just musing here...

It's hard to fathom that that boob Geraldo is still employed by Fox; however, knowing Ailes's (and Murdock's) propensity for sensationalism and Ailes's statement that they're moving left, I suppose it's not really surprising. Just another reason not to watch.

Mr. Woods - God bless you, sir. Your son was a fine and honorable man who died a her's death. God does not look on these things lightly.

My heart goes out to the parents of all the fallen Americans in Benghazi. Mr. Woods is a hero for speaking up, in whatever venue he can.

Lots of people think Whore-aldo is brilliant so maybe they watch him on Fox; I don't. If they did, they needed to hear Mr. Woods.

I cannot remember the program, maybe Jeanine, where Ann Coulter and Pat Caddell were guests. Caddell was livid about Benghazi, emotional to the point of tears. That kind of justifiable anger must be seen a bit more.

We have a week to change our lives and our country.

The so-called media is unbelievable in their participation in this cover-up. Talk about target rich environment! 1. Where are the people from the embassy staff who were rescued? 2. What happened to the local guards our "friends" in Libya provided? Why were Gen Hamm and Admiral Guaemane(sp?) booted? Their careers are over, and they are in uniform, so they can't talk now. If they were to blame for the mess, Obama would be braying about it from the rooftops. My guess is they fiercely objected to the massacre 0 was ordering them to abet.

God bless Mr. Woods and his family and all those who defend this great country. And God save us from Obama. That said, somewhere I seem to recall footage of big brave self righteous worthless Geraldo in the field in Libya I think before things got really bad and there was wild shooting by unidentified people/sides and Geraldo was complaining about them not knowing who was who and possibly being shot at himself. Geraldo is who Geraldo always was -- lowlife scum. Now wearing Obama kneepads as noted above.

Earth Daze: Overcoming Environmental Hysteria

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers. Great—but now we´re told that we´re in big trouble because greenhouse gases cause global warming. I mean, climate change. "Crop yields are

The Stupid Hounding of Condi Rice

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says. Rosendale is trying to stand out in a five-way primary for Montana´s at-large seat in the House. Sporting a barn

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something. George Washington had a taciturn streak, as did President Coolidge, known as “Silent Cal.” (Snip)But rarely does anyone get as upset about it as Jeffrey Toobin of the New Yorker appears to be in respect of Clarence Thomas. Toobin came unglued at the disinclination of

The U.S. must stand behind
its security obligations
Washington Post, by Michael Chertoff    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/17/2014 5:09:09 AM     Post Reply
On the eve of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, Gen. James Mattis admonished the 1st Marine Division to “[d]emonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy.’” That motto could serve as a guiding principle for sound national security policy. Regrettably, our allies wonder whether the United States is demonstrating the reverse. Since leaving as secretary of homeland security in January 2009, I have talked with officials from friendly nations in Asia and the Middle East. Increasingly, I hear skepticism about whether the United States remains a reliable ally our friends can trust for support against attacks.

SAN ANTONIO, Tex. — Mayor Julián Castro of San Antonio faced off in a televised debate on Tuesday against a Republican candidate for Texas lieutenant governor, even though Mr. Castro, officially anyway, is not running for anything at all. “Sometimes I get impatient,” Mr. Castro said on a recent afternoon here. “And I figure I have nothing else going on, so I might as well.” The mayor was joking, up to a point. Ever since he became the first Latino to give a Democratic National Convention keynote address in 2012, he and his identical twin brother, Representative Joaquin Castro, the Texas Democrat

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
