“I Do Not Appreciate Cowardice, And I
Do Not Appreciate Lies”: Father of
Former Navy SEAL Killed in Libya Attack
Reacts to Learning His Son Disobeyed
Orders to Save Fellow Americans

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/26/2012 1:52:04 PM

On yesterday’s America Live, father of Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods – who was killed in the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya – talked with Megyn Kelly about the current administration’s handling of the situation. Today, Woods returned to the program to react to breaking news exclusively reported by FOX revealing that officials denied military requests to provide assistance three separate times during the seven-hour attack on the consulate. It was Tyrone Woods who disobeyed those orders to stand down in order to come to the aid of his fellow Americans …

Comments:
This is Megyn Kelly's interview with Tyrone Woods' father. It will both enrage you and break your heart. We have never had such corrupt criminals in our White House who allowed this tragedy to happen because they put their own political interests first.

I heard this man talking to Glenn Beck. He is as proud as any American Father can be. And I'll bet that he's a tad peeved (putting it mildly) that the administration has LIED to him.

“The reason I’m speaking out right now is that after the facts came out that the White House [...] watched my son and denied his pleas for help, my son violated his orders to protect the lives of at least 30 people,” he said, adding, “He risked his life to be a hero; I wish the leadership in the White House had the same level of moral courage that my son displayed.”

I first heard this today, when Rush began his program with it. I had Fox News on, but muted with closed caption.

When Megyn Kelly came on, and I glanced up at some point to see she was interviewing Charlie Woods, I switched to actively viewing Fox News's coverage on this and I've been glued there (and here) ever since.

So far, the two parents I've heard (Pat Smith first, and now Charlie Woods) have been far more restrained than I would be if my son had been one of these two heroes ALLOWED TO DIE. I'd be all over it, all over the place, every news outlet I could find. Screaming about it!

Grief over a child is hard enough, but to learn that he had been DENIED HELP, and that his death was PREVENTABLE? And that the word from the HIGHEST authorities in this country had SPECIFICALLY DENIED his request for help or rescue?!!! I can hardly contain myself NOW!

I saw Geraldo Rivera this morning on Fox talking over Brian on this subject directly contradicting things that this article exposes. He was dispicable. The company that he works for BROKE THIS STORY, bucking all the other news media. He SHOULD BE FIRED!

And this administration...what can I say. NO ONE DIED IN WATERGATE...(only John Dean's ego got bruised, imho.) THIS MUST NOT STAND!

I do hope that FOX news redoes their special on Benghazi and adds the information coming out this week, play it while NatGeo is airing Harvey Weinsteins tribute to Obama, trying to make the pig Obama into something he isn't, OBama is a coward not worthy of anyone's consideration.

Anyone who heard that extremely knowledgeable caller to Rush is raging the way I am.
Panetta is piling lies on lies. Coded emergency Communications from the consulate to the WH were a "different" line of communication..like IMs. A message that the Ambassador is in peril would require the person to physically give that message to the POTUS immediately.

Just finished listening to a ‘Special Forces Insider’ caller to Rush Limbaugh, 1:47 PM, describing that ‘Flash Traffic’ had to have been presented to the ‘Responsible Person’ standing next to the POTUS minutes after the attack began and that Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) would normally have had US military assets over Benghazi soon after the attack was reported.

He stated, that someone had to say NO to the commanding general in Germany who is responsible for Libya.

I started tearing up part way through his description of how totally incompetent everyone involved from Obama to Panetta on down were that evening.

Regardless of the outcome of this election, the US House of Representatives should, regardless of the specific wording in the Constitution, vote to IMPEACH each and every one of them!

And…. Screw the GD Senate and the asses they rode in on!

With this AM’s revelation that the CIA Operators located at the annex were told to ‘Stand Down’ and not go to the rescue of the State Department personnel at the Consulate, I am absolutely livid.

I am so POed that I dare not type my emotions.

I pray to God that this despicable peace of crap looses the election because if he doesn’t, this country will come apart at the seams with so much social unrest that it will take us decades to recover.

Barak Hussein Obama is worse than a traitor. Words fail me!

This has Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett written all over it which means that a bunch of Commie Bast--ds from Chi-Town have been directing American National and Foreign police for 4 years!

BTW: Chicago politics has been the center of Communism in America for generations dating back to the early 1900s. Just ask Obama’s Mother/Grandparents and close friends/associates.

According to Rush,a plausible explanation for this is that this being close to the election,Obama remembered the failed Carter rescue that sank his presidency.Rather than take this big risk,they then let it play through and then blamed that video.They then go out blame the video,arrest the videomaker case closed.

Mr. Woods we are proud of your son and his utmost sacrifice, we are proud of you for bringing up such a son. I write these words with tears in my eyes. Your sacrifice shows that there are still decent Americans that know right from wrong and are willing to do what is right no matter the consequences. God bless your family.

The outrage and grief that felt on this and other threads as more truth comes out is spreading.
I've watched Hannity, Greta, Palin, Newt, etc. on the news after the e-mails were released, and I can see the shock and anger in their eyes and voices. Even O'Reilly wouldn't let Juan get away with spinning Libya.

For the fallen Americans of Libya; for the heroes in the line of fire now, I pray for justice. Let this evil act of cowardice by Obama and his cohorts not be forgotten after the elections. Let them be accountable. Let right and wrong have their proper names once again.

#7: Bret Bair said on their Wednesday eve on-line show that they are producing a totally new special on Benghazi that will air several times but defiantly at 10PM on Sunday eve.

He said that “It will be a full court press” referring to the release of the Tuesday emails. The revelations as of Friday AM will have to make it a Fuller-Full Court Press!

We currently have the Comcast budget cable plan but I will upgrade to include Fox News for at least a month so not to miss-out on what is unfolding.

During the next week, Obama is going down with a resounding thud and he will take Hitlery, Panetta, Generals Dempsey/Ham, and National Security Advisor Donilon with him.

At least Axelrod and Val-Jar will be out of our hair.

We are witnessing history in the making as we watch a disgraced US President give the finger to America.

#13 mentions "Flash" precedence traffic. We now know from reports that the CIA Chief of Station in Libya informed the WH within 24 hours. I am 100 percent certain that incoming cable traffic on an incident of this magnitude, when diplomats' lives were in imminent danger, would have carried the "FLASH" precedence. After working hours the cables would have carried the NIACT (Night Action) precedence. These would come straight to the CIA's Watch Office and the duty officers would have notified anyone and everyone, including the DCIA, who needed to come in to Headquarters to respond and make decisions.

This is so serious that it should mean an honorable President would step down immediately. Watergate was nothing compared to this, nothing. Dear friends, we have traitors at the highest levels of our Government, and Barack Hussein Obama is right at the top. Obama lied, his advisors lied, his Secretary of State lied. They are all disgusting traitors, all of them. They watched while our diplomats were being murdered.

God help this country. We really need to pray, because this incident is the tip of the iceberg, I am convinced.

Mediaite has learned from a senior source in the cable news industry with knowledge of MSNBC’s programming that actor Alec Baldwin is getting his own weekly show in MSNBC’s primetime lineup. According to our source, the so far untitled show will air Fridays at 10 p.m. ET and will feature a large dose of Baldwin’s outspoken liberal politics. The gig would make sense, considering Baldwin’s long history with the NBC family.

One of the new talking points we are seeing throughout the mainstream media is a mocking "Here we go again" attack-narrative against the Republican Congress as they maneuver to defund ObamaCare, or work to kill various parts of ObamaCare. But a new poll shows that almost two-thirds of the American people want Congress to keep at it. Fox News notes that when asked if the "health care law needs to be changed and Congress should keep at it, 63% said yes. That is up from 58% a year ago." Only 31% oppose.

Former Florida Rep. Allen West had harsh words of criticism for nationally known civil rights activists like Jesse Jackson and the Rev. Al Sharpton, who have remained silent on a video showing black teens beating a white boy, 13, on a school bus: “Ya’ll just make me sick.” The video, which went viral this past week, depicts a July 9 assault on a Pinellas County school bus. Three black teenage boys, all age 15, beat a white boy, while the bus driver — who has since resigned — tries to verbally halt the altercation but does not physically intervene.

President Obama on Friday said he’s “absolutely certain” the Senate’s immigration reform bill would pass the House if it were allowed a vote. “Get that bill to the floor,” the president said at a press conference before embarking on a weeklong August vacation. House Republican leaders have declared the Senate bill dead on arrival and are pursuing a series of piecemeal bills that they say would do more to secure the border. Obama said the only thing holding up immigration reform is “internal Republican caucus politics.” He said GOP lawmakers are making the

On issues like tweaking Obamacare during its implementation and passing the president’s priorities, Reid said on Nevada’s NPR affiliate that he’s still seeing the same Republican obstructionism that he saw in the run-up to the 2012 presidential election. “I hope that’s based on substance and not the fact that he’s an African-American,” Reid added.

ObamaCare’s cost-cutting board — memorably called a “death panel” by Sarah Palin — is facing growing opposition from Democrats who say it will harm people on Medicare. Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean drew attention to the board designed to limit Medicare cost growth when he called for its repeal in an op-ed late last month. Dean was quickly criticized by supporters of the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), who noted his ties to the healthcare industry as an adviser to a major D.C. lobbying firm.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie holds a narrow lead among Republicans for the party’s 2016 presidential nomination, but even more GOP voters say he’s the candidate they least want to see nominated.

Ending a war is a good thing. Killing civilians a bad thing. Deliberately targeting civilians is murder, and is never morally licit, even in pursuit of a good thing such as ending a war. The tens of thousands of Japanese non-combatants we killed 68 years ago this week with two nuclear bombs were not “collateral damage” of military strikes. They were the intended targets. We hoped that mass murder would bring the Japanese emperor to surrender. It worked, and American and Japanese soldiers’ lives were probably saved by it —

In a move some claim is tantamount to social engineering, the Department of Housing and Urban Development is imposing a new rule that would allow the feds to track diversity in America’s neighborhoods and then push policies to change those it deems discriminatory. The policy is called, "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing." It will require HUD to gather data on segregation and discrimination in every single neighborhood and try to remedy it. HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan unveiled the federal rule at the NAACP convention in July. "Unfortunately, in too many of our hardest hit communities, no matter how hard

National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden extended his 15 minutes of fame Wednesday, as headlines tied his saga to President Barack Obama’s decision to cancel a planned summit meeting in Moscow next month with Russian President Vladimir Putin. But analysts said the talk of Snowden’s role in the cancellation obscured a more basic reality: The U.S.-Russia relationship is now so frosty that it didn’t appear the two presidents would actually accomplish enough to merit such a high-profile meeting. After four years, the much-vaunted reset in U.S.-Russian relations has devolved into a chilly standoff over issues like the Kremlin’s support for Syria
