Letter: Is Obama Lying?

This week we learned of an e-mail from our Libyan embassy telling the state department they were being attacked by an extension of Al Qaida. We also learned President Obama watched the attack for seven hours in real time from a drone flying over the embassy site.

Obama said he called it terrorism the next day in the Rose Garden at the White House. He may have done that because he watched and read the e-mail from the four Americans killed in that attack. He did nothing to save these men. He watched the events unfold and could he have possibly seen our four Americans in the process of being killed? He is trying to say this two ways. He either said it was terrorism in the Rose Garden the next day, which means he allowed them to die, so why for the next two weeks did the White House and Obama try to cover it up? Either way, Obama cannot be trusted with America and moreover, American lives.

  1. In August 16, 2012 cable marked “SECRET” to the State Department warned that the Ambassador could not be defended against a coordinated attack:

    “RSO (Regional Security Officer) expressed concerns with the ability to defend Post in the event of a coordinated attack due to limited manpower, security measures, weapons capabilities, host nation support, and the overall size of the compound,” the cable said.

  2. Obama Failed , Progressive Policies Have Failed.

    Tyrone Woods, is the father of the ex-Navy SEAL who died while trying to defend Ambassador Chris Stevens in the terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

    Charles Woods expressed his belief that, given the revelations about real-time intelligence about the attack being funneled to Washington, it’s clear that someone gave an order not to save those trapped in the consulate by the terrorists.

    Joe Biden, a progressive, came over to Mr. Woods and his family and asked in a “loud and boisterous” voice, “Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?”
    “Are these the words of someone who is sorry?” said Woods.

    But perhaps most damning of all were the words of Clinton, who not only attempted to promote the story of the video being the cause of the attack, but went so far as to promise to have the man who produced it jailed. You would have to be a left-wing, kool-aid drinking liberal to believe that a video was responsible for the deaths of the Ambassador and the Navy SEALS.

    While the White House has been furiously trying to persuade the country that it always knew that what happened was a terrorist attack, Clinton’s comments are another reminder of the administration’s effort to falsely blame it all on the video. It does not surprise me that a progressive like Hillary Clinton would imprison anyone for exercising free speech. The fact is that progressives can only win if they shut everyone else up.

    I want to honor my son, Ty Woods, who responded to the cries for help and voluntarily sacrificed his life to protect the lives of other Americans. After seven hours fighting numerically superior forces, my son’s life was sacrificed because of the White House’s decision.

    This has nothing to do with politics, this has to do with integrity and honor. My son was a true American hero. We need more heroes today. My son showed moral courage. This is an opportunity for the person or persons who made the decision to sacrifice my son’s life to stand up.

  3. Ron,

    Thank you for your letter. It is short, to the point, and most of all. It is factual. I believe you represent conservatives like me who want to know the truth no matter where it leads us. Obama is no friend of the military. He let them die, but he has also dishonored their sacrifices to preserve our freedoms.

    I believe that Romney will be the next president of the United States because most people recognize that he has the character and qualifications we need at this time to fix the economy that has been so damaged by Obama’s policies.

    I am not talking about portfolio enhancement when I say that Obama has shut down the economy by canceling oil drilling contracts on public lands. In fact if the national media were doing the job that it should be doing, instead of cheerleading for Obama, it would be asking this question. Then perhaps more people would be better informed. Instead the national media is given to silly, nonsensical, barbs against anyone who disagrees with Obama and his policies. There is not a scintilla of news that contains actual facts as you have set forth in your letter. Media, ask this question!

    How can a president simply cancel an oil drilling contract just because he wants to? Are we not a nation of laws? Obama apparently does not think so. He is acting more like a third world dictator. Does not the U.S. Constitution guarantee the right to contract, and if that right is violated, even by the president of the United States, do we not have the right to justice in the courts of this land? Obama apparently does not think so.

    I have spent my entire adult life as a lawyer. I am licensed as an attorney in four states. I know and understand the law. I believe in defending the Constitution of the United States, and I did so both as a judge of a lower court of criminal jurisdiction, and as a public advocate for the freedom to work, and freedom of religion. I have defended the religious, women, and gays who were discriminated against by government and private employers. I have defended the disabled who were denied reasonable accommodations in order that they might continue to support themselves and their families.

    I believe in freedom for everyone, not just those who agree with me, and I also believe that Obama is an enemy of the freedom that my fellow countrymen serving in the military have fought to preserve. Millions have sacrificed their lives so that we might have the right to expect that our government will protect our right to contract, and not destroy it. Obama has apparently forgotten about their sacrifices.

    Veterans who have served and survive will join me in saying that freedom of speech is one of our most precious liberties. Thank God we are free to call someone’s intellectual arguments “horse manure”. Or even worse, call someone who has fought for gay rights a “gay basher”, or one who gets down on his knees every night to pray for our country a “religious fanatic”. I am proud to say that I am an American where anyone can say the most hurtful things about those with whom they disagree, and do so without criminal penalty or government censorship.

    Ron, keep up the good work. Truth has no agenda and good will overcome evil.
