Friday and Saturday, the news leaked out that Tyrone Woods was found dead, slumped over his ammo-exhausted machine gun on top of the Annex, where he and Glen Doherty had fought against 150 or so al-Qaeda affiliated Ansar al-Sharia militants who followed them from the embassy, waiting for Libyan forces to arrive and relieve them and the other US personnel stationed there, along with those they'd saved from the embassy complex. Rumor has it that the two former SEALs had killed 60 of those militants in the firefight.
Today, administration apologists were all over the networks talking about how unhelpful and partisan it is to demand answers from the White House, who want to get the answers more than anybody . . . after the elections. Oh, wait: administration apologists were on FOX, which was the only network really to address the matter.
More details were delivered by FOX tonight. You really have get a look at the information to see how bad it all looks for the administration. The evidence has been mounting that the White House hung them out to dry. If Woods and Doherty had not relieved the embassy and defended the Annex, the American body count almost certainly would have been much higher. Their heroism was repaid with . . . dead fish.
The administration has thus far refused to release the videos, citing their "ongoing investigation," but after years of selective leaks and administration attempts to throw the intelligence community under the bus, it's too late. Apart from FOX, Sharyl Attkisson at CBS (who revealed Obama's "60 Minutes" statements at the peril of her career there) and Jake Tapper at ABC, the legacy networks and most of their print coreligionists have done everything they can to keep the story under wraps.
Rahm Emanuel also tried to throw a block for Team Obama today, talking about how President Gutsy Call "took control" of that Benghazi business, how he answered the call . . . even as the calls went unanswered.
Four real Americans died. Obama and his crowd of Proggie thugs and apologists have lived to screw another day. They need to be put out of our collective misery.
