Slain official's mom rips President Obama
Politico ^ | 11 Oct 2012 | BOBBY CERVANTES

Posted on 10/11/2012 10:45:06 AM PDT by mandaladon

The mother of one of the State Department officials killed in the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi is blasting President Barack Obama and top administration officials for not telling her more information about her son’s death.

“Don’t give me any baloney that comes through with this political stuff,” Pat Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, said on CNN on Wednesday. “I still don’t know. In fact, today I just heard something more, that he died of smoke inhalation.” Sean Smith was an information management officer in the U.S. Foreign Service. His mother said the administration’s promises for a definitive account of her son’s final hours have not been kept.

“The things they are telling me are outright lies,” she said. “Leon Panetta actually took my face in his hands and he said, ‘Trust me, I will tell you what happened.’ And so far he’s told me nothing.”

She laid into the officials for not acknowledging she “has a right to know something.”

“I told Obama personally, ‘Look, I had him for his first 17 years, and then he went into the service then you got him,’” she said. “I said, ‘You screwed up. You didn’t do a good job. I lost my son.’”

This is so pitiful and horrendous. Words fail!

BTW, isn’t “Politico” a left wing site? If so, it’s surprising they went with this story.

Sean Smith was an avid player of EVE Online and a highly respected member of his corporation. The EVE community has been transformed by all of this and many corps, mine included, renamed our stations to honor him.

Mrs Smith also said in the Anderson Cooper interview that she was crying in front of Obama then he just turned and looked away, dismissing her.

It didn’t have to be this way if Obama and Hilary were decent people and not self serving creeps.

The mother of the slain American should be careful talking like that to a Democratic Party President.. especially when he told (warned?) her that he'd get back to her and she can count on that.

President Clinton had Couple Arrested for Insulting Him!

Glenn and Patricia Mendoza were reacting to the 19 airmen killed in a Saudi Arabia suicide bombing (1996) and confronted President Clinton. The Chicago police and the Secret Service got back to the Mendozas immediately -- they were arrested -- and IIRC the IRS and DoJ kept getting back the them for years after that.

0bama/Hellary’s massive coverup show just how far they are willing to take a lie.
They acted more repulsed by a stupid video than the tragic loss of American lives!
They have lost their soul..if they ever had one?

There wasn't anything happening until the mortars started dropping in.

Yeah
I heard it on Rush.
He played the audio from the Anderson Cooper show.

I nearly broke out in tears.

The poor mother saw pictures of bloody fingerprints on a wall. She just learned yesterday that he died of smoke inhalation.

And they lied to her face. Rice, Clinton, Panetta. Obama went through the motions...cold hearted bastards.

That would explain the difference between the original administration accounts of demonstrations and what we now know.

I’m gonna try to find his posts.

I watched her last night on Anderson Copper 360... Anderson’s look on his face during the interview was priceless at times.

She said at one point Obama gave her a hug and looked far away during the hug so it meant nothing.

Obama form an early age has had been possessed by a powerful Demon. A perfect possession as Malachi Martin would call it. A person perfectly possessed is out of God's grace, he has blasphemed the Holy Spirit and is content in rejecting Jesus and rejecting God's grace. Anyone with discernment can see that look on Obama's face. Its full of hate, rage, and loathing for everyone. Satan himself is helping Obama and his surrogates. Think its kookville, look back into Obama's past and see what issues and policies he gets passionate about. The murder of children, the obsession with homosexuality, Satan's own fascination with "Fairness", he affection for peoples who relish murder and violence, the lying. I am sure this woman felt the demon on him when she hugged him. Obama did not care one whit about her son, in fact Obama only cares for himself. That included his own family, if Michelle ever got in the way of his aspirations she would see what he is capable of.

This election is a literally a spiritual war, Obama's folllowers who embrace, envy, hate, covetesness, obsessed with fairness and the forces on the other side, the forces of charity, mercy, freedom, kindness, gentlesness and respect.

I game with a couple of guys that play EVE, and we’re all going to get in on the Dust 514 side of things. One of top guys in the EVE corp I’m going to join was a staff sergeant, and I’ll talk to him about doing something for Sean Smith in the corporation.

Sean Smith was an avid player of EVE Online and a highly respected member of his corporation.

I had heard that Smith was a well-known player in EVE, but this is the first time I've heard that he was in Goonswarm.

Goonswarm is a big part of why I left Eve. They had a habit of picking fights with people they knew couldn't fight back, just to be a pain in the galaxy. After they did it to me, I decided it just wasn't worth the effort to rebuild.

Of course, I'm not claiming they were breaking any rules. In Eve, everything goes. But, "Goonswarm diplomacy" is an oxymoron.

Yeah, I’m no fan of the Goons. I’ve been a member of NC and TEST, and they were a constant thorn in our side. I always just packed up and left null and mined HS until I found another corp.

Regardless of affiliation, Vile Rat is missed.

I had my own single-member corp. I set up a research station in medium-sec space and was researching/copying blueprints. Since I didn't have to wait in line for a public lab, I was effectively printing money.

I made sure the station was fully fueled and went on vacation for a week. I came back and found that Goonswarm had declared war on my corporation, destroyed my station, and withdrew the declaration within about 2 days.

Their rationale? The research stations were generating blueprints that were used to build ships, which required mining their sacred asteroids. No, I'm not making that up -- that was their actual declaration.

Regardless of affiliation, Vile Rat is missed.

I don't miss Vile Rat.

I miss Sean Smith.
