Benghazi: The mother of fallen hero Sean Smith slams Barack Obama over his phony scandal comment
After ignoring the economy for five years Barack Obama has decided to refocus on it, and while doing so he has tried to lay the blame for his failures on the Congress by claiming they “took their eyes off the ball” in order to focus on “phony scandals.”
He apparently feels that the NSA gathering information on all calls and emails made and written by most Americans isn’t important, and as if using the IRS to target political opponents isn’t important and shouldn’t be questioned.
But most of all he has decided that the rape and murder of a United States ambassador, and the killing of three other Americans during a terrorist attack in Benghazi is a phony scandal. How dare the Congress try to hold his majesty accountable for his inaction during the attack!
Needless to say, this is not sitting well with the mother of Sean Smith. Sean Smith went to the defense of Chris Stevens and fought off the terrorists for seven hours while waiting for help which never came even though it was available. He was rewarded for his heroic actions with his death and his mother has not been able to get any answers from the Obama regime. To her this is not a phony scandal:
I don’t believe him anymore,” Smith said. “He’s wrong. My son is dead. How could that be phony?”
According to Smith, she has been given no answers about what happened that night. She said the administration told her she “didn’t need to know.”
“When I was there at the ceremony of the welcoming of the caskets, both Obama and Hillary and Biden and all of the other ones, all promised me they would get back to me to tell me what happened,” Smith said. “I begged them. Please, I must know what happened with my son. How come this happened? They all promised me they would get back to me. You know, not one of them, not one of them ever got back to me in any way shape or form — not by a letter, not by anything other than I got a memo stating that I didn’t need to know because I was not part of the immediate family.”
Smith made one last plea to the Obama administration explaining her desire for answers.
“How can I tell you?” Smith added. “I mean, it is wrong. It is not phony. It is not fake. My son is dead, and why is he dead? All I am waiting for even to this day is just someone to get back to me and tell me what happened. Why did Hillary do as she did? Why was there no security there when there was supposed to be? Who was the general that called back the troops when they were going to help?
Can you imagine being in her shoes, sitting at home and listening to the president’s remarks only to hear him brush off her son’s death as a phony issue? Can you imagine what she must have felt and the pain this must have brought to her after waiting so long for answers?
Barack Obama should be ashamed of himself and he owes the families of Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, Chris Stevens, and Tyrone Woods an apology. But of course he feels no shame because he had more important issues to deal with that night: he had to get a good night’s sleep in order to be prepared for a fundraiser in Nevada the following day.
Phony? My ass…..
