Ty Woods' Dad Seeks Benghazi Answers On Capitol Hill
Investor's Business Daily ^ | Apeil 19, 2013 | IBD EDITORIALS

Benghazi: As new whistle-blowers emerge and Congress tells CIA staffers to lawyer up, a grieving father demands to know how and why his son died and why no one in the administration wants to talk to him.

As long as we're on the subject of finding the terrorists responsible for killing U.S. citizens on American soil, the father of a former Navy SEAL killed in Benghazi last September was on Capitol Hill Wednesday to urge support of a special committee to investigate the attacks.

As we search for answers on Boston, we still have no real answers on Benghazi seven months after the terrorist attack on our diplomatic mission there.

Charles Woods and several members of Congress held a press conference in an effort to highlight what they say is the Obama administration's failure to fully disclose the circumstances that led to the deaths of four Americans, including Ty Woods and U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

The elder Woods said he is still waiting for real answers from the White House and the State Department.

"We don't just want another paper report," Woods said. "We want people who were on the ground" to testify and explain "why they failed to provide support and protection" to Tyrone and others. "This is extraordinary and we need to know ... who was it that gave the order to stand down," Woods said.

Woods' appearance on Capitol Hill comes less than a week after the mother of another Benghazi victim, Sean Smith, penned a frustrated letter to Congress about the death of her son.

"When I was in Washington, D.C., at the reception of the caskets, I asked for and received promises from President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Leon Panetta, V.P. Biden and several other dignitaries in attendance.

Mr. Woods, I’m sorry for your loss. I’m sorry that the government of this nation has devolved into a sewer filled with self serving, soul-less demons.

My God grant you peace, because you’ll receive no comfort from out government.
