Disgusting but true.
From the Washington Examiner:
At the World War II Memorial on The Mall in Washington, where veterans have been staging protests to keep it open, Washington Examiner’s Charlie Spiering reports that at least seven officials were dispatched Wednesday morning to set up a ring of barricades to block tourists from the memorial. That is two more security officials than the State Department had in Benghazi a year ago on the night of the terrorist attack that killed four, including the U.S. ambassador.
Obama et al. evidently believe that it’s more important to protect war memorials from patriots than to protect patriots from slaughter.
Just found out the Admin sent 7 officials to WWII Memorial this morning to secure it – 2 more than were guarding our consulate in Benghazi!

Obama sends more guards to WWll memorial to keep veterans out, than he had in Benghazi to protect the lives of the Americans murdered

@BarackObama way to send more to the WWII memorial to stop Vets from visiting than to Benghazi to save lives

Guards at WW2 memorial? Where was all this manpower at #Benghazi?

Obama ignores al Qaeda attacking Americans in Benghazi but rushes to block vets from their own WW2 Memorial? SCUM! Pure evil scum!
