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.
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)
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.
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.
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?
Shame on you Geraldo. You're letting politics get in the way of the truth and it shows in your body language. I realize you are a bleeding heart liberal and I've agreed with you a couple of times in the past on certain subjects, but not this time. You are dead wrong.
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.
If you missed Jeanine Piro over the weekend, you need to search it. She essentially cut zero's head off, the little that remained. Liar in chief. Scorched him and honored the 4 abandoned and dead in Benghazi. And those who helped in obeying a treasonous order to stand down? You gotta hear her.
60 dead Muslims went w/ Tyrone and Glen....we'd never know that but for the "whistleblowers" Holder wants hunted down now.
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.

Coward in Chief. My thought: it would be great if someone could do a "Joker-style" poster nailing this to Obama, slap them near voting places, hold them at the polls, and have it go viral. I would try, but not an artist. (at least I can fantasize)
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.

WASHINGTON -- An American who vanished nearly seven years ago in Iran was working for the CIA on an unapproved intelligence-gathering mission that, when it came to light inside the government, produced one of the most serious scandals in the recent history of the CIA - but all in secret, an Associated Press investigation found. The CIA paid Robert Levinson´s family $2.5 million to head off a revealing lawsuit. Three veteran analysts were forced out of the agency and seven others were disciplined. The U.S. publicly has described Levinson as a private citizen.
The powerful uncle of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has been executed as a "traitor for all ages," the official news agency reported. Jang Song Thaek faced a special military tribunal Thursday and was convicted of "anti-party, counter-revolutionary factional acts" in a bid to overthrow the the communist country´s leadership, KCNA reported Friday in Pyongyang. The state news agency did not say when or how Jang was killed. North Korean media reported Monday that Jang had been purged for crimes that included faction-building, corruption, drug use and womanizing. He was considered the country´s most powerful figure after his nephew. State TV aired
Not only could you "shoot your eye out, kid," you might also go to jail for owning that BB gun in certain states. New Jersey and other jurisdictions make little or no distinction between Daisy´s classic Red Ryder BB gun immortalized in the film "A Christmas Story," and real guns. They must be registered and are subject to the same laws as any firearms. “In all honesty, kids who are charged are looking at mandatory jail time,” said New Jersey attorney William Proetta, adding that under the state’s Graves Act, a conviction could lead to prison time. “The only defense is to
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced this morning that nearly 365,000 Americans had signed up for private health insurance under Obamacare. The vast majority came from 14 states running their own insurance exchanges, while 137,000 came by way of HealthCare.gov, the much-faulted federal Web site that handles enrollment for the remaining states. But amid the rush to enroll as many people as possible by the Dec. 23 deadline, there’s a huge caveat that isn’t getting much public attention: For coverage to take effect on Jan. 1, enrollees must pay their first month’s premium on time. (The deadline varies
If you like your selfie, you can keep your selfie. Period. Unless, of course, you’re Barack Obama, in which case, you better delete it from your smartphone pronto, unless you’d like to spend the next three or four months dining on hot tongue and cold shoulder. You didn’t need a fake interpreter from an old Woody Allen movie to translate Moochelle Obama’s body language. So there they were, Barry, British Prime Minister David Cameron and the hot-wife leader of Denmark, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, hamming it up like it was the 25th anniversary reunion of the Choom Gang. Some Krazy Kids, horsing around, waiting for
The British security firm that failed to protect the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, from a terrorist attack a year ago that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens was told by the State Department to avoid the media, the latest example of stonewalling over the attack. In newly uncovered emails received by the public watchdog group Judicial Watch, State was notified that the firm, Blue Mountain Group, was being pressed for answers about the surprise attack. Instead of giving the group the green light to answer the media, State ordered the firm to go into hiding. “Thank you so much for informing us about
Regularly scheduled elections are a hallmark of the American political system. In 18th-century Britain, the monarch could call new elections on a whim, and our Founders saw in that arrangement a seed of tyranny. The Constitution they designed requires elections for Congress every two years, and the next such elections are less than a year away. This is good news for conservatives as they continue to oppose the Obama administration. This president has been tremendously helped by having a Democratic-controlled Senate for his first five years in office. Harry Reid’s masterful, if not entirely virtuous, use of Senate rules has
The gangster state of North Korea became a nuclear power in 2006–07, despite lots of foreign aid aimed at precluding just such proliferation — help usually not otherwise accorded such a loony dictatorship. Apparently the civilized world rightly suspected that, if nuclear, Pyongyang would either export nuclear material and expertise to other unstable countries, or bully its successful but non-nuclear neighbors — or both. The United States has given billions of dollars in foreign aid to Pakistan, whose Islamist gangs have spearheaded radical anti-American terrorism. Ever since a corrupt Pakistan went nuclear in 1998, it has been able to extort such
After three months and more than 50 phone calls, John Gisler gave up on buying coverage through HealthCare.gov. Gisler wanted to purchase a plan for his 45-year-old son, who has a rare degenerative condition affecting his coordination and speech. His current coverage through Utah’s high-risk insurance pool plan ends Dec. 31. By that time, the Obama administration expects enrollees to transition into health plans sold through the new health-care law. But so far, Gisler hasn’t succeeded in purchasing coverage -- but not for a lack of effort. “We’ve had three separate applications that failed to make it through,” Gisler says. “I have a
Remember when Bill Clinton was twice elected President as a "New Democrat" who wanted to get along with people in the private economy? Nowadays even writing in favor of ideas that Mr. Clinton supported can get you branded a heretic and banished from impolite liberal society. Witness the political tempest that blew up in response to the December 3 op-ed we published by Democrats Jon Cowan and Jim Kessler of the Third Way think tank. The former aides to Andrew Cuomo and Chuck Schumer, respectively, would be considered liberals in most places outside of the Harvard faculty lounge. But the campus
Maybe he went into sugar shock over a Danish pastry. The president of the United States, leader of the free world, standard-bearer for everything upright, good and wholesome about the nation he leads, lost his morality, his dignity and his mind, using the solemn occasion of Nelson Mandela’s memorial service Tuesday to act like a hormone-ravaged frat boy on a road trip to a strip bar. In front of 91 world leaders, the mourning nation of South Africa and Obama’s clearly furious wife, Michelle, the president flirted, giggled, whispered like a recalcitrant child and made a damn fool of himself at first
Washington -- A handful of Republican Party officials is quietly advancing a new batch of rules aimed at streamlining a chaotic presidential nominating process that many party insiders viewed as damaging to the their campaign for the White House in 2012, multiple GOP sources told CNN. In a series of closed-door meetings since August, handpicked members of the Republican National Committee have been meeting with party Chairman Reince Priebus in Washington to hash out details of a sweeping plan to condense the nominating calendar, severely punish primary and caucus states that upend the agreed-upon voting order and potentially move the party´s

When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats.

Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela´s memorial yesterday "made up his own signs," according to South Africa´s deaf federation. "He´s a complete fraud," Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, said according to ITV News. "He wasn´t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around." Delphin Hlungwane, an official South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters:
If you go down on the ice today you´re sure of a big surprise - a rare glimpse of 20 polar bears gorging on a bloody midnight feast. These photographs show a rare cluster of males, females and cubs all dining out on the remains of a whale carcass. They spent a night and a day stripping every last morsel from the mammoth sea creature. Usually Polar bears are solitary and would never tolerate being so close to each other. But with food in plentiful supply and bellies dragging on the floor they seem too lethargic to fight.Wildlife photographer Michal
THE Internet has been abuzz over the spectacle of President Obama and the prime ministers of Britain and Denmark snapping a photo of themselves — a “selfie,” to use the mot du jour — with a smartphone at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela in South Africa on Tuesday. Leaving aside whether it was appropriate, the moment captured the democratization of image making that is a hallmark of our gadget-filled, technologically rich era. Manifestly undemocratic, in contrast, is the way Mr. Obama’s administration — in hypocritical defiance of the principles of openness and transparency he campaigned on — has systematically tried
