A father and a mother used the word “murder.” A brother said he won’t second-guess decisions made in the heat of battle.
The families of three Americans killed in the Sept. 11 U.S. consulate attack in Benghazi, Libya, are offering widely different reactions to recent reports that U.S. personnel issued several requests for help that were turned down.
Patricia Smith, the mother of slain State Department employee Sean Patrick Smith, is now blaming President Barack Obama for her son’s death.
“I believe that Obama murdered my son,” she said Thursday from the living room of her Clairemont home. “I firmly believe this.”
Patricia Smith, who voted for Obama in 2008 at the insistence of her son, said reporting by Fox News is the basis for much of her belief that Obama is ultimately responsible for her son’s death. She said Sean, who went to Mission Bay High School but lived abroad, was a fervent supporter of the president.
Somehow I doubt that Patricia Smith will be draped with the mantle of “Absolute Moral Authority” that was accorded to Cindy Sheehan during the Bush years.
Note that the authors say that her feelings are based on “reporting by Fox News” as if that is a disqualification of fact…the truth is that if it weren’t for Catherine Herridge and Jennifer Griffin of Fox, this travesty would not get any attention at all. If these two don’t win a Pulitzer, the award is worthless.
