Not long after dropping the MOAB on former President Barack Obama for referring in his speech in Illinois to Benghazi (you know, the spontaneous protest inspired by a YouTube video) as a “wild conspiracy theory,” Paronto was suspended by Twitter and forced to delete a tweet where he mocked a Twitter rando for tweeting to SEAL Team 6 member Robert O’Neill that it was Barack Obama who killed Osama bin Laden.

We’re not sure if any of that is on Washington Post reporter Alex Horton’s mind, but he’d like Paronto to follow him so they can direct message. Horton’s bio says he’s an Iraq vet who previously worked at Stars and Stripes, but people are pretty leery, including Adam Baldwin.

Or maybe ask yourself … why would someone like Paronto be wary of speaking to a Washington Post reporter?

He is; we love to feature his tweets.
