Biden, Kerry honor fallen US diplomats at DC ceremony

Vice President Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry hailed the courage and dedication of U.S. diplomats slain in the line of duty as they led a memorial service on Friday to honor those killed in last year’s terrorist attack on the American diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya and an April roadside bombing in Benghazi. SOURCE

Dept of StateThe Diplomatic Service can, and often is a very dangerous line of work and I am glad to see that Biden and Kerry took the time to honor these fallen officers killed in the line of duty and those that were killed trying to protect Ambassador Chris Stevens in the attack on our facility in Benghazi, Libya.

Personally, I believe that if the Obama administration really wanted to honor those that were MURDERED in the Benghazi attack he would order his Sec. of State to make FULL DISCLOSURE to the American people regarding their deaths.

It’s a nice gesture to honor the others that were killed in service to this nation; Anne Smedinghoff, Ragaei Abdelfattah and long over-due, Joseph Fandino and Francis Savage. Indeed, they KNEW the dangers they faced and the chances they took, and I am sure that they readily and willingly accepted those dangers.

The thing about their deaths, as opposed to the MURDERS of the Benghazi Four is this, their deaths were individual actions. They were doing their jobs and they paid the ultimate price for doing so.

Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Ty Woods were also well aware of the dangers and they were doing their jobs too. The difference you ask? At Benghazi their deaths were unnecessary and were watched in REAL TIME, on a damned TV screen, by the President, Sec. of State Hillary Clinton and every other person in that room.

The President and his staff sat there and watched as brave Americans fought to the death and they, Obama and Company, did NOTHING. They did LESS than nothing. They ordered all rescue missions STOPPED, shut down, cancelled, scrubbed and called off.

A myriad of excuses were given, lies have been told and many in this nation, myself included, believe that the government of the United States is complicit in this act of murder at the hands of Islamic terrorists!

Many Americans, again, myself included, believe there has been a massive cover-up in the actions, or lack thereof in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012.

There are a lot of suppositions as to WHY there is a suspected cover-up, one of the most virulent being that the CIA was engaged in supplying guns to Syrian rebels at the behest of OUR government.

Given the recent past stupidity of the Obama administration and the yet to be resolved Fast and Furious operation, that gun-running thing is not at all out of the realm of possibility.

Neither Biden nor Kerry made mention at the ceremony of the ongoing dispute between the administration and congressional Republicans over the administration’s handling and response to the Benghazi attack. Stevens and the others were killed in an assault on a diplomatic mission there on Sept. 11, 2012. No one has been identified as responsible for the incident.

I find that last line to be a bit unbelievable, or, at the very least, under-investigated by FOX News. FBI Seeks 3 Men Linked to Benghazi Terror Attack. It seems ABC and NBC have similar stories, with pictures of the individuals.

I am forwarding ALL of my Benghazi posts to MY GOP Congressman, Pete Sessions (TX-32), and I am hoping that he will get actively involved in this fight to ferret out the TRUTH about Benghazi and ALL of the reasons why!

Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Ty Woods, deserve to have the TRUTH told regarding their murders and We, The People deserve to know the truth. The parties responsible MUST be held accountable in their deaths and for the LIES they have told this nation.

It’s up to our Congress and Senate to make this happen, and if they don’t do so, if they are too powerless to get to the bottom of this atrocity, then it’s up to We, The People to remove those persons and replace them with folks that WILL act!

    I have been emailing my Congressman, Markwayne Mullin also. I am hopeful the truth will come out, but if it does, it will be up to us to do the reporting. The media will continue its silence, no doubt.

    • TexasFred says:

      We have computers, keyboards, Internet access, well, at least for now, and we have a very broad audience…

      We got this.. All we need are *findings*… And I seriously hope to see my Congressman actively involved in this, if not, he is NOT going to like me very much when it’s all said and done..

      • LD Jackson says:

        I haven’t heard back from Representative Mullin. It is his first term and his first elected office. Not that it hinders him, but I am sure he is still getting his feet under him in Washington. I asked for a response to what I sent him and I also posted my latest Benghazi article on his Facebook wall. I am hopeful he will get involved, if he isn’t already.

        • TexasFred says:

          That’s what is bugging me about MY Congressman. I have his private email address, he gave it to me, and he knows I am a very vocal activist with a large audience in HIS Congressional district.. We have each others private phone numbers too, he has called me before and I have assured him that if he tells me something that has to remain confidential, it WILL… He knows I will speak my mind and that I don’t give a DAMN who likes it or doesn’t…

          And yet I haven’t heard back so much as ONE WORD.. .

          • LD Jackson says:

            I just received a form reply to my email to Markwayne Mullin. The reply assures me that Mullin will reply as soon as possible. We’ll see if that happens.

            • TexasFred says:

              I HATE FORM LETTERS!

              That is all I am getting from our TX-113 STATE Rep now, after Joe Driver retired and Cindy Burkett took his place, form letters are the order of the day…

              Come re-election time some folks are going to feel the wrath…

              • LD Jackson says:

                I am sure they are using the form letter to weed out the contacts who don’t need or deserve a real response. Having said that, I hope he does get back to me. We’ll have to wait and see, I suppose.

                Check your email, Fred. I am about to send you something I want your feedback on before I post it.

    The Socialist in Chief was too busy honoring a QUEER hoop shooter for his ability to be a QUEER…

    “Lurch” and Uncle Joe together,,,wow.
    Niether of them can walk and chew gum at the same time,,, and they are together!
    A perfect fit for Obastard.

    Are you sure the president watched the happenings in Benghazi at all or for very long? He may have passed the buck and told someone else to handle it. Remember he had a fundraiser in Vegas the next day and needed to prepare for that. Did he order others to do whatever would keep the Benghazi attack as quiet as possible? I mean, attacking the attackers would make a lot of noise and news. I do believe that whatever he did was what he thought would be in the best interest of getting himself re-elected.

    I listen to Congress persons bloviate on the TV and the Radio. What a bunch of Bull Sh**. It is simple in my mind: (1) The State Department failed in its responsibility to its employees to protect them and, (2) they started a cover up due to the upcoming election of the liar in chief. (lower case deliberate).

    I learned as a little kid. When you screw up-just man up and tell the truth.

    Iam sick and tired of this administration lying to the people they are paid to represent.

    Obama should have been Impeached a long time ago, notwithstanding Reid’s Senate would never convict.

    Hillary in 2016–makes me want to barrrrf.

    • Hgpsurf says:

      Let’s hope the truth comes out and it destroys Hillary’s chance of ever becoming president.

      I think all of us here are sick and tired of the lies coming from this administration. However, we have a long way to go as not too many months ago more than half of the American voters fell for these lies and re-elected Obama.

  6. Dick Robie says:

    And, to me it is simple–just tell the truth and quit screwing around hoping it will go away. If I have my way, it will remain an issue in 2016.

  7. A pathetic response to a pathetic response to a crisis, a real one, involving some very brave Americans.

    If nothing else, as in say that nothing nothing could have been done to save them? Which is indeed quite untrue. How about a “Broken Arrow” operation…
