The men certainly went above and beyond what they had to do, and fully deserve medals for their efforts.
Instead, their families got this gross question from VP Joe Biden:
Woods said Biden came over to his family and asked in a “loud and boisterous” voice, “Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?”
Nice way to talk to a grieving family.
But, that wasn't the worst part for the family.
The grieving father also described his brief encounter with President Obama during the ceremony for the Libya victims.
“When he finally came over to where we were, I could tell that he was rather conflicted, a person who was not at peace with himself,” Woods said. “Shaking hands with him, quite frankly, was like shaking hands with a dead fish. His face was pointed towards me but he would not look me in the eye, his eyes were over my shoulder.”
“I could tell that he was not sorry,” he added. “He had no remorse.”
Hillary Clinton was apparently still officially clinging to the since-discredited explanation for the attack.
After apologizing for his loss, Woods said Clinton told him that the U.S. would “make sure that the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted.”

Let me see - does this fully sum up what is known now?
- The film was NOT the reason for the attack. It was a deliberate, coordinated act of war (attack on an embassy is an attack on that country - the embassy is considered that country's sovereign territory), with the assistance of Libyan "protectors".
- The film may have been deliberately designed to cause problems in the Mideast, and provide an excuse for releasing The Blind Sheik
- The film may have originated as a covert operation in OUR country, by OUR own Obama administration.
- Obama IS responsible for failing to protect the embassy.Released cables are backing that assertion up. Obama might have known that, IF he had done his job, and attended the security briefings. Even if he knew, would he have cared? Doubtful.
Lest we forget:
He was a State Dept. employee, computer geek, an avid gamer, and just in the wrong place at the right time.
Glen Doherty and Woods, the two former Navy SEALS who were among the four Americans inevitably murdered, allegedly disobeyed orders from superiors to “stand down” in the wake of the attack. Despite being told by higher-ups not to respond, they purportedly decided to go to the main consulate building to help U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and others who were under siege.
While it was previously known that these men arrived on the scene to provide assistance, the alleged “stand down” orders and the repeatedly-denied requests for military assistance are new developments to a story that seems to be continuously unraveling.
Sorry, Obamanuts, that's NOT what SEALS do. They do NOT abandon Americans to their deaths.
