Mother Of Slain Benghazi Officer To Sean Hannity: ‘They Want Me To Shut Up’
Mediaite ^ | Friday, April 5, 2013 | AJ Delgado

On Friday, Sean Hannity brought Pat Smith, mother of the late Sean Smith, on his radio program. The 34-year-old information management officer was one of four Americans murdered in the Benghazi embassy attack on September 11, 2012.

In the chilling interview, a distraught Ms. Smith, in tears, pleaded for answers and spoke of the efforts to silence her.

Ms. Smith first relayed how her son, prior to the attack, requested additional security in advance and warned the State Department:

He did tell them, ahead of time, he typed it into his little typewriter over there, that they were going to be attacked, ‘please they needed more security,’ and they were ignored. And I don’t appreciate everybody going to bed and going to sleep and not taking care of the guys that they put in harm’s way, one of them being my son.


Smith then spoke of the intimidation she has experienced, in her quest for answers, noting she is being silenced, though Hannity clarified it is not by someone in the government:

They don’t tell me much. They want me to shut up…. I was told, and I really would rather not say by who, [though] I can if you need it, but I was told that I’m causing a lot of problems and to shut up…. I told them ‘I will not! I will not shut up until I find out what really happened!’

Hannity noted how trying to cover this story is “very frustrating,” with Ms. Smith wryly noting: “I know, you won’t find the answer. I’m told it’s too high up.”

Asking probing questions is not Hannity’s forte.

Of course they want you to shut up, Dear.

This whole administration is allergic to anything that has to do with the concept of honor.

Where are the investigative reporters on this one?

Both of them are still in Wasilla pawing through Sarah Palin's trash.

Totally agree with you, Leni! Sean was also first to let Dr. Ben Carson appear on his show which allowed Dr. Carson to publicly defend himself following the Liberal trashing!

You are right. Sean is also the one who interviewed Rev. Jeremiah Wright, and looked into his church.

I’ve always been curious as to why some big money, conservative types, can’t provide this woman with the money needed to hire a big time, big mouthed lawyer.

A Gloria Alred type, but not a whiny, liberal skank like she is.

FOX would be nothing without Hannity.

I wish they would give him O’Reilly’s spot.

In the United States Air Force, I worked as an Airborne Command Post Communications Equipment Repairmen on the EC-135C’s and E-4A’s & B’s.

Concerning the Flash and Flash Override circuits:

From what I remember, 1) The President had Flash Override capabilities, 2)The Secretary of Defense had ‘em, 3) the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff had ‘em, and, 4) all the Commanders of the Unified Commands had ‘em.

Subsequently, because we had the Prez and Unified Command commanders flying around with us every so often, and, because we could bypass the ground equipment down in the silos and launch nuclear warheads at the turn of a couple keys without the help of anyone down in the silos, I can assure you that the Flash and Flash Override circuits worked quite well on the EC-135C’s and E-4’s!

In fact, once the “butter bars” figured out that they could drop everyone off the trunk circuits with the Flash and Flash Override buttons while we were in flight, there was no end to their mischief.

So, we started telling everyone that, per order such-and-such, section such-and-such, the Flash and Flash Override circuits had been reconfigured—like the hotline phones—to directly call the President and Vice President on their “Red Phones.”

Yup, that put an end to the butter bars’ inflight games. (Well, it put an end to THAT particular game, I should say; they had plenty of other “sillinesses” to keep themselves amused).

Anyway... Where was I, now? Oh, yeah: Heck, we even had the Full Birds scared to death that they might accidentally slip while dialing during some turbulence, hit the Flash Override button, wake up Reagan, and find themselves shipped out to Antarctica, or Bumfrumptegypt, or someplace like that. LOL!

Good times.

I've got a brother who spent 6 years in "TECH CONTROL" and one of his jobs after 18 months tech school was maintenance
for the E-4s and the more than 16 direct lines that had to be on-line and undisturbed all the time.
He got my parents into the situation room in the mid 80s and showed them the equipment.

Anyway, I'm familiar with "there'll be hell to pay if you accidentally touch that FLASH OVERRIDE or FLASH button" from Commanders who didn't think control towers or RAPCONs needed it, but couldn't override us having it.

I remember a Ground Control Intercept Controller that used the FLASH button one time because he had 6 F-16s returning to base with emergency fuel problems,
and the FAA raised hell with the AF TRACON because that GCI controller bumped them off the line.

Yeah, I know what you're talking about.

Maybe she told Hannity in private...which would be excellent insurance for her, should the ones that told her to shut up wish to silence her forever. I keep remembering how many “accidental” or coincidental deaths there were related to the Clintons. And they weren’t even half as shady or thuggish as King Barry.

Should a Federal employee be aware of the commission of a federal crime and he/she not report it, he/she is guilty of “Misprison of a Felony.”

[From Wikipedia}: “United States federal law

“’Misprision of felony’ is still an offense under United States federal law after being codified in 1909 under 18 U.S.C. § 4:

“Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

“This offense, however, requires active concealment of a known felony rather than merely failing to report it.”

We have A LOT of felons serving in the Obongo Bozo administration!

Three years is not nearly enough Big House time for the Obongo Bozo felons, but it is a start!

A courageous and honorable mother suspects Hillary and Obama threw her son’s life away - and now those two want his death to be meaningless and forgotten. She’s not going to let that happen. Prayers for this good woman.

This woman has little to lose.

Easy to say when it's not your life, your money, your family that could be taken away.
