Father of slain SEAL Tyrone Woods: ‘I do not appreciate lies’

This afternoon, Fox News’ Megyn Kelly held a gut-wrenching, emotionally charged interview with the father of slain SEAL Tyrone Woods. Woods was killed during last month’s deadly attacks in Benghazi, and, as we learned earlier today, he was one of a handful of CIA operators who defied orders to stand down and bravely rushed to the U.S. Consulate under heavy gunfire.

Woods’ father, Charles, expressed his disgust over the Obama Administration’s reckless disregard for his son’s life on that horrible night and its lack of concern and respect for his family after Tyrone’s death.

The Right Scoop has posted the full interview:

Tyrone Woods is trending, deservedly, on Twitter as people react to Charles Woods’ heartbreak over his son’s death:

It’s worth noting that the MSM has failed to show Tyrone Woods and his family the respect they deserve:

Warped priorities: the hallmark of the Obama Administration.

Obama’s White House and media lapdogs may refuse to honor the memory of Tyrone Woods, but we will never forget his courage and sacrifice. God bless Tyrone Woods and his family. May they get the justice they seek — and deserve.



Mother of slain Benghazi diplomat calls Obama out on ‘not optimal’ remarks

  • Marcy Cook

    Charlie Woods is a better person than I am since he forgives those who killed his son. But for myself I will never forget and never forgive.

    • Guest

      I remember the Amish in Lancaster County, PA forgiving the guy for killing those girls on October 2nd of 2006. I couldn’t forgive that guy then, and I don’t think I can forgive the people involved with the Benghazi killings, including our government jackasses.

  • EastValleyConservative

    I hear you Marcy-I respect him for taking the higher road and not calling it out for what I think most of us know what this is. An outright assassination aided by our government. I was “scolded” by another user in one of these forums yesterday when I made this statement with a response that amounted to “that’s not exactly what happened” and when the explanation this user gave rambled out, it still looked bad. It still amounts to assassination. Period. His comments were something to the effect of AQ wanting ambassador Stephens alive as leverage for the blind sheik in response to their nervousness about the direction of the polls and fear that the release would not happen. Okay, maybe–but I am highly doubting it. And if that was the case—-this administration STILL sat back, scratched their chins like they were playing chess and said “Nah–not worth it. Stand down.” Assassination.

    • http://amandakmelson.wordpress.com/ GreenEyedGal

      How would Stephens being kidnapped to be used as leverage for the blind sheikh be okay with anyone who had even an ounce of moral or ethical dignity? What a lame excuse (my apologies to the lame community and Twitchy PC police).

      There is nothing that can be said, no explanation that can be made, that is going to justify in any shape, manner or form, the actions of this administration. Not only that, but in my book, there is nothing that can be said, no explanation that can be made, that will justify in any shape, manner or form, anyone who tries to defend the actions of this administration. Anyone who would defend Obama, Biden, Clinton, Panetta and anyone else who was aware of what was happening and did NOTHING to prevent it shows their complete lack of morality and ethics. The individuals in power have a mandate to protect its citizenry and have not only failed in their duty, they did it deliberately, then turned around and lied about it, disrespected the people they killed, lied to and disrespected the families of those they killed, lied to and disrespected the American people, shamed us on national television and shamed us in front of the UN. I am so sick over what has taken place I’m finding it hard to find the words to describe how absolutely wrong and disgusting this is.

      I don’t know what can be done, short of voting them out on November 6. And if that fails, then what? If this administration will not protect its people, who will? “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” – Thomas Jefferson

      Is anyone with me?

      • EastValleyConservative

        I am with you. :) That explanation given by someone is in my opinion, nonsense. Even if that were the truth, the end result was that this administration willfully and destructively decided he wasn’t worth it. I think it goes deeper, and regardless of this administration’s motives–they were criminal in nature. What can be done is we, the people, keep this alive from start to finish. It’s been a hard four years, and the insanity that has come out of this administration has been so swift, that we can barely catch our breath before the next thing happens, which is why, often, we move on to the next big problem and forget about the previous one. This time, we have to stick to it. Both with Fast and Furious, and especially with this one. It is not going away, we won’t let it. Regarding the person that scolded me on it—so be it. Some people feel a need to be right rather than do what is right. That’s on them.

        • http://amandakmelson.wordpress.com/ GreenEyedGal

          “Regarding the person that scolded me on it—so be it. Some people feel a need to be right rather than do what is right. That’s on them.” Well, that person wasn’t right and is advocating what isn’t right. But YOU are right, that’s on them.

          I wept as I listened to Charlie Woods speak to Megyn Kelley. What a class act. I don’t know how he can be so forgiving of the people who murdered his son. I know I would not be able to do the same. But he did raise his child to be a man of character and integrity. And for that, we can be forever grateful. And to show our appreciation, we must raise our children the same way.

          I will not forget. I will never forget.

      Who cares what liberals think? They’re lying filth. Hypocrites don’t deserve consideration.

      Your comment was correct and now these lib bastards need to be removed from office and charged, and libs need to be exposed for the pigs they are.

      This was the last straw. Never let your voice be dictated by hypocrites who still do not know the America is DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC, not a Democracy. They don’t realize there’s a difference.

  • syvyn11

    Simply put. At the very least, this is dereliction of duty on the heads of State, CIA and the President. At the very worst, this is treason. Giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

  • Michele

    Joe Biden told Charlie Wood this:
    “Joe Biden to Father of Former Navy SEAL Killed in Benghazi: ‘Did Your Son Always Have Balls the Size of Cue Balls?’” Source: From the theblaze.com
    It’s so unreal!!
    My prayers our with our fallen hero’s.

    • bicentennialguy

      Had I been Charlie Woods, or it had been a child of mine and this arrogant prick said that, I would have told him right there to go F himself….with no compunction.

  • NCRelite

    To add insult to injury they claimed the attack was because of a youtube video mocking the Islamic prophet, and now a man sits in jail as a result. This country has become unrecognizable

    • Junie3

      Hillary told this man they were going to get the youtube maker and set to it that he’s punished. She was still pushing the video when the caskets came home. 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?” President Barack Obama wouldn’t even look him in the eye and Vice President Joe Biden was disrespectful during the ceremony when his son’s body returned to America. He also says the White House’s story on the attack doesn’t pass the smell test.

      Glenn Beck had him on the show yesterday, glad to see Fox is finally airing this.


      • BlueGood

        I am still dumbfounded at the lack of action by O’bama, the Cover up is

        It’s almost like living/witnessing a Tom Clancy Novel in REAL
        TIME…..waiting for the SANE and reasonable Jack Ryan to relieve the Crazy
        POTUS of his duties….for the sake of the NATION!

        This is BEYOND FICTION….BEYOND the realm of protocols….Americans blood dripping and the POTUS sits backs and watches…he refuses assistance….

        Other world leaders must be just sitting back eating popcorn….and


        I listened to Rush’s interview with insider re: Communications with WH

        I heard Mr. Wood’s heartbreaking and eloquent pleas….

        I cried listening…and the anger builds…WHO THE HELL’s HEAD IS gonna ROLL???…..


        • http://twitter.com/MDMorris_1707 Michael Morris

          The COVER UP is treasonable? Really? Deliberately letting four good men die is treasonable, covering it up afterwords barely rates a mention. #TreasonIsAHangingOffense

        • fivegreatkids

          Clancy’s latest novel with Jack Ryan was downright scary in how close it has ‘come to pass’. If you didn’t read it, find a summary. The parallels (sp?) are too close.

    • http://www.facebook.com/brett.mcmicken Brett McMicken

      y’know, as an aside, obama & hillary squawked about that insulting video and gave gasbag speeches about tolerance and respect, yet, they don’t mind taking donations from hollyweirdos who insult God, Christians, and Jesus.

    • Mini14’sBlkStrat

      All this Death & destruction because hussein obama just didn’t want to look bad, and maybe blow his chance at being re-elected.

      PS…Since the msm doesn’t like to report anything that makes hussein obama look bad, everyone, please use all Social Media sites to tell as many people as we can what’s going on. This is a Huge deal!

  • Jason Hubbard

    I find it absolutely disgusting that the President allowed 4 Americans to die. Lies about it. Didn’t try to save their lives when he knew it was happening real time when he had the assets to do so. And he is gonna get away with it, because we the American public is allowing him to. To this i say BULLSHIT!!! He lied, was caught lying and we still let him not answer the questions we have, get the i
    nfo he has such as the drone video put in public. He, as all elected officials is a civil servant, to which he works for the citizens of this great nation. He has no right to lie to us, hides facts and truths from us or let Americans die while in service to the country and not do anything about it. There is absolutely no REASON the 4 men should have died. There were warnings about the danger, previous attacks on the consulate, request for additional security and help on multiply levels. All to which was denied. I implore you call you congressmen and senators. Demand that the President be made to answer the questions hes been lying about. Demand the truth. When he was running the first time he swore to be transparent with us. He is about as transparent as a brick wall. If you agree with this please share it. Justice must prevail. Do not let these brave men’s deaths mean nothing so a coward can be re-elected for the crimes hes committed against America!

    I saw Glenn Beck do an interview with Charlie Woods yesterday. It was so emotional. I couldn’t help but cry. I feel so bad for him and his family. I can’t believe how he was treated at his son’s funeral. Where does our leaders have the right to talk to them in that way;. And Biden takes the cake when he said, “Did you son always have the ball the size of cue balls”, I admire this man and his son they both are true hereos. Take the time to listen to the interview http://www.glennbeck.com/2012/10/25/updating-glenn-talks-to-father-of-navy-seal-killed-during-assault-on-libyan-embassy/

  • Discontentwliars

    Tyrone Woods and fellow former Navy SEAL Glen Doherty and maybe others are HEROs that ignored orders to save those under attack. The Truth will come out!

    Someone really needs to go to jail over this.

      Agreed. Just one correction…. someone ELSE really needs to go to jail over this!

    Let me tell you something you heartless deceitful libs. You and your miserable governance are absolutely cowards. You murdered those men and you lied to us like the filthy liberal rats you are.

    Tyrone Woods was an EXCEPTIONAL AMERICAN!! He gave his very life to help those in need, even as cowards in the White House let them die like animals.

    Was it you Valerie Jarrett? Did you let them die? America demands justice. We want those cowards and deceivers who lied to our faces to be charged and crushed. How dare you!!

    This is exactly what liberals are, their liars, their thieves, their hypocrites and their disgusting. They have set themselves on fire and tried to lie and falsely claim racism, they spit deceit of illusionary tolerance as they attack gay conservatives, black conservatives and our Christian faith, but ally with Islam as they attack our fundamental rights.

    They send out fraudulent state election letters to conservatives saying they’ll be charged and arrested if they vote. They remained silent as black panthers suppressed white voters in philly. They have been found a multitude of times knowingly committing voter fraud. They go to a corrupt UN and knowingly deceived them to subvert American sovereignty and our election laws to aid their continued fraud.

    They continue to ignore the separation of powers and the power to legislate, a power duly vested in the Congress and Congress alone. They raise our national debt every year for the past four years by a trillion dollars each.

    They control the MSM and report grossly distorted and knowingly false information. They continue to threaten Romney with assassination and harm. They attack conservative organizations with IRS threats and hypocrisy.

    They deploy indoctrination to misinform our youth. They cut our defense as China and Russia increases theirs.

    I am sick and tired of you cowards. I am tired of your lies, I am tired of your bullshit and I am tired of your two faced, double standing, redistributing, intelligence lacking, elitist pushing, socializing, know nothing, hyper partisan, indoctrinating, bigot slinging, violence pushing, Christian bashing, intolerant acting, hypocrisy bathing, sexist cheering, ignorant speaking, America hating, Islam pandering, disgusting liberal pigs.

    Your vile filth and with no moral consciousness. You bitch about the rights of animals but slaughter unborn children. You bitch about religious affiliations but side with Islam. You claim to be concerned for Israel but swoon her enemies. You are disgusting. I have never been so angry in my life. I am furiously angry. Obama, Jarrett, Clinton and the rest of you hypocrites seriously needs to be in prison.

    And how dare you Clinton. How dare you even think about violating our 1st Amendment right and threaten prosecution against a film and the film maker and pandering to the morons in Islam that riot and massacre innocents because they’re so full of hate and full of stupidity to act like human beings.

    America is done with your lies and with you hypocrite intolerant and violent liberals. Congress had better stand the hell up and charge you bastards in office. Clinton is scum, Obama is scum, Jarrett is scum.

    Congress, America DEMANDS JUSTICE!! And we will expect nothing less.

    I need a smoke, the anger we feel is extremely high. Congress the people ORDER YOU to bring those bastards to justice.

    The whole story reeks…

    It DOES NOT matter if it is protesters or alquaeda that is attacking.

    It DOES NOT matter if they are angry because of a film or it is because of their hatred for us.


    What matters is that American soil was being over run and American lives were being taken. If the White House was under attack would the Secret Service and Marines “stand down” until they found out who and why there was an attack? No.

    The reasons and the affiliation of who is attacking is the most irrelevant Bull I have ever, ever heard.

      This is a grown man who has been quiet until recently. He is a former lawyer and administrative law judge. He is speaking to ANYONE who will listen to him especially after the new emails were released proving the military were told to “stand down.” He has said that he doesn’t care about politics and I think he is mature enough to decide if he is being used.

  • Emjay Graykat

    Barack Obama, David Axelrod, Hillary Clinton and Valerie Jarrett walk into a restaurant. They order drinks, food, and even champagne. They have a great time. When it comes time to pay they all get up to leave. The maitre d walks over and says, “excuse me, but you forgot to pay.” Obama turns to him and points to a table where four men are sitting. He says, “Oh, that’s ok, we’re not going to pay. You see those men over there? Well, they said they’d pay” He turns to the men and says, “Isn’t that right guys?” And then he followed the others out the door.
