Quote of the day


Here's the father of slain former SEAL, Tyrone Woods speaking out about his son's death in Benghazi this past September 11th. Listen to/read in the transcript below what he has to say and prepare to have your mind blown:

Via Hot Air:

“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. “Any attack on an American consulate is an attack on American soil. There were American citizens that were attacked for seven hours on American soil a couple thousand miles away from Washington, D.C.”

“My question of the president would be this: Your Honor, I respect your office as president. But if this attack on American citizens, on American soil, happened 2,000 miles away from Washington, D.C. — say in Los Angeles or in Seattle — would you have waited seven hours before you sent the first airplane? Would you have waited seven hours until the attack was over? Would you have waited a couple of days until you had all of the videos and all the information before you responded in a responsible military way?” …

“This is about honor, courage and about love for America. And remember this, Mr. President: My son and the others died heroes and it’s better to die the death of a hero than it is to live the life of a coward. If you are responsible for the death of my son, I forgive you, I love you. I also love America.

(italics, ours)



If you wondered from where Tyrone Woods received his courage, honor and sense of duty, your question has just been answered.

We don’t doubt Charles Wood’s sincerity, such is the forgiving power of agape’ love but there is also profound disappointment within Mr. Woods for the way the aftermath of this disaster was handled. When we watched it, we could not help but recall a famous scene from one of the greatest movies of all time that was also all about profound disappointment


Our prayers to the Woods family and to the families of the other 3 slain American heroes of Benghazi.

The more you learn about this, the more hideous it becomes.
