San Diego Union Tribune Editorial Board: ‘YOU HAVE THE BLOOD OF AN AMERICAN HERO ON YOUR HANDS’
San Diego Union Tribune ^ | 10/30/2012 | Editorial Board

Posted on 10/31/2012 11:12:29 PM PDT by SeattleBruce

...The senior Woods is correct. Inevitably, there will be a bipartisan fact-finding commission into this terrible tragedy and its cover-up.

Unless the mainstream media stops abetting the cover-up and the facts come out without a commission wielding subpoena power.

Isn’t this a story – a gigantic story?

Of course. But we fear that ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, The New York Times and The Washington Post will only choose to realize how obvious this is after Nov. 6. Then it will come to them – spontaneously, we’re sure.

I’m ashamed that two former U.S. Navy SEALs asked us for help but we went to Vegas instead. Nobody had THEIR back! They were murdered because the U.S. government didn’t care about them. Obviously, Obama thought that they were expendable. Obama can KMA.

Sounds like the heroes have connections there. One even grew up there. That community must be fit to be tied (i.e., deeply upset) that their hometown boys were left to be killed without requested protection. Come to think of it, these four were American heroes. They are hometown boys to us all.

You’ve heard of welfare to work...

I think Obama is an example of the all new Politics to Work program. He puts in a few hours each week, gets paid by the federal government, and is categorized as being a part of the national work-force.

All he has to do is work part-time, get a little on the job training, and then graduate to... to... ah...

Say where to F-Ups go when they get their Politics to Work walking papers?

In this case I hope it’s directly to hell.

The San Diego Union Tribune, now called, U-T San Diego, is my home town paper and it’s not part of the MSM, since Doug Manchester’s company bought it in late 2011. He is very conservative.

Right. Doug Manchester is very conservative. He runs the show at the UT and you can tell he has the facts and he’s furious about the cover-up and he’s not for the Marxist’s reelection at all.

We can pray and hope this editorial get some national attention. Roger Hedgecock will most assuredly talk about it on his radio show. I think I’ll send the link to Rush and Drudge!

NO, no, no, the truth of Bengahzi would be too embarrassing for the jet-setting, Las Vegas loving Marxist right before an election. So the MSM will just put all of that inconvenience off so they can help him get re-elected.

The people who pay the salaries of these so called “journalists” of the MSM should be laughed off the face of the earth.

If re-elected, do you really think ANYONE would investigate 0bama over this mess? The left, including the black community would scream that the Republicans aren't happy with 0bama's re-election and are just trying to undo it. Nearly a year would have to pass until anything could be done.. Same old story. There has been and will ALWAYS be an excuse to delay action on 0bama's impeachable offenses or ignore them all together. 0bama counts on this phenomena to wage his war on America and it's called THE RACE CARD.

THIS IS WHY AMERICA MUST HAND HIM HIS PINK SLIP ON NOVEMBER 6TH, along with Nanny State Michelle, Bozo Biden, Jarrett, Panetta, Hillary, Huma, Axelrod, Jay Carney, Napolitano, Eric Holder, Kathleen 'SS' Sebelius, Cas Sunstein, John Holdren, Lisa Jackson (EPA), Susan Rice, and all the other progressives, socialists, communists, Marxists and Fascists in our gov't. GOD SAVE THE SCOTUS FROM ANY FUTURE 0BAMA PICKS!!!

"YOU HAVE THE BLOOD OF AN AMERICAN HERO ON YOUR HANDS"

Infidel blood is just what a devout Muslim wants. Mohammad taught this by the example of his murderous actions long ago.

The 9/11's were acts of religious faith, and the enemy's desire to murder us began with that religious faith, not with ANYTHING we've done. Muslims have been killing non-Muslims for being non-Muslims since Mohammad started it over a thousand years ago. We are fighting the words of Allah as copied word-for-word into the Koran by Mohammad. We are fighting the Koran. We are fighting the religion of Islam. We are fighting the word of Allah. As a result, blood will be shed forever, or until there are no more Muslims, or no more infidels. Pick one.

Sorry if this seems harsh, but I don't think it can be stated any clearer.

Thanks for putting this up. I've sent the link to several in my address book.

Charles Woods:

“I can’t imagine anyone with any heart that would watch a battle rage for seven hours knowing that heroes were there that were going to be slaughtered if you didn’t have help sent in. ... Whoever it was that was in that room watching that video of my son dying, their cries for help, their order ‘don’t help them at all, let them die’ ... you have the blood of my son, you have the blood of an American hero on your hands. I don’t know who you are, but one of these days the truth will come out." (emphasis mine)

Pretty much says it all. Gibbets called for. Some assembly required.

The office is not YOURS, President Obama, to choose to ignore or not ignore what you want. ALL Americans are YOUR responsibility!! These people died — they will live no more — you IGNORED their requests for help. Americans DO NOT leave one another behind in ANY danger!!! Freaking Panetta ...ought to be HANGED!!!

Our media sickens me. Democrats sicken me. They’re going to destroy this country before it’s all over if we let them.

We have a communist propaganda machine in this country, not a media. And until comrade Bronco Bama is made chancellor again, the CPM is not going to mention Benghazi. Once Broncos power is assured then they will get back to business and blame it on the Republicans.

President Romney needs to ban ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, The New York Times and The Washington Post from the White House news pool, citing their obvious bias, labeling them propagandists rather than journalists. Ban these organizations from all contact with the White House. Let them continue to get their news from the DNC.

Remember, Obama vilifies Fox News - he set the bar, so why shouldn't Romney vilify the propagandists?

THE PAPER is the San Diego Union Tribune

San Diego has a large military population, Marine Corps, Navy, Seal training facilities etc.

This may have something to do with it.

Romney could easily let his administration get tied up by the propagandists, much as GWB did.

If you are spending much of your time trying to explain why condoms are not free or Big Bird lost his gov’t subsidy, then you are not spending that time improving the economy or protecting the country. If a propagandist wants to talk about homosexual rights rather than human rights, then why waste the time?

Obama has spent 4 years ignoring the Right. Romney needs to ignore the Left for 4 years, not because they are the opposition, but because they are dead wrong on the economy & foreign policy.

I realize the above has little chance of happening. More likely, Romney will compromise us into deeper debt, less freedom, more gov’t, & more perversion.

Seems to me that the story is breaking open mostly in editorials in areas close to military bases. There was an editorial in a Las Vegas paper, close to Nellis AFB. And of course, San Diego is where the USMC training base is at (I forget the name of it).

Maybe the editorial boards have a clue about how angry the military folks are about this. Maybe if they knew that even non-military people care deeply about this issue too, editorials would spring up in the rest of the country as well.

Or maybe not.

Say where to F-Ups go when they get their Politics to Work walking papers?

Typically, "walking papers" for feral gubmint employees consists of a promotion into a position several states away, "up and out". Most of my observations of this truism have come within the USDA Forest Service.

This phenomenon accounts for the near-meteoric rise of some individuals.

The "Peter Principle" has far less meaning in the Land of Make-Believe than it has in the Real World.

You have to ask yourself why were these men told to stand down and let the Ambassador be captured? After they they went in risking their lives why were they given no support? Why did the Government than try to cover the whole thing up with a make believe cover story about a you-tube video? Why have two senior ranking military leaders in the Army and Navy been sacked? The answer is obvious and frightening that the Ambassador was suppose to be captured and the culprits left unmolested as they were doing what Obama wanted or instructed them to do? To many good people in the military and CIA to keep quite and not get facts out eventually. Was the Sec-Def, CIA Chief, and Hillary all involved in the plot and or cover-up and or both? Who will sign first to get the get out of jail free card???
