Benghazi Mom: “I Believe that Obama Murdered My Son”

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


We have two parents of Americans murdered at Benghazi blaming Obama in no uncertain terms for the deaths of their children. And we also have zero mainstream media coverage of their statements.

“Until I find out anything, Obama killed my son, my only child, the one who was going to take care of me when I’m old,” Patricia Smith said.

Neither Patricia Smith nor Charles Woods are partisan figures, unlike Cindy Sheehan, they are not pushing any political agenda other than finding out why their children were left to die in Benghazi, cut off from air support.

Patricia Smith, the mother of slain State Department employee Sean Patrick Smith, is now blaming President Barack Obama for her son’s death.

“I believe that Obama murdered my son,” she said Thursday from the living room of her Clairemont home. “I firmly believe this.”

Patricia Smith, who voted for Obama in 2008 at the insistence of her son, said reporting by Fox News is the basis for much of her belief that Obama is ultimately responsible for her son’s death. She said Sean, who went to Mission Bay High School but lived abroad, was a fervent supporter of the president.

Smith’s view echoes that of Charles Woods, father of Tyrone Woods, the 41-year-old former Navy SEAL from Imperial Beach who died fighting in Benghazi.

Charles Woods appeared on Fox News shows over the weekend to denounce decisions made by U.S. officials during the Libya attack.

“I’m a retired attorney, and I know that these actions legally do not constitute murder. But in my mind the people in the White House, all of them who have authority to send in reinforcements to prevent what they knew was going to be the death of my son, are guilty of murdering my son,” Woods said Sunday on Fox’s Sean Hannity show.

So far the only coverage of Patricia Smith’s statement comes from two local channels. Meanwhile not too long ago, Cindy Sheehan’s pre-election tantrums had nationwide coast-to-coast coverage.

    Hm. Sounds like she felt cold fish when she hugged Obama. Maybe she sensed insincerity oozing from his embrace.

    AIPAC HAS GOT A HOLD OF HER MORE NOISE COMING FROM AIPAC

    • Daniel Greenfield

      AIPAC has hold of your nose

  • bkopicz

    This is an absolute tragedy.

      NO it's not a tragedy. A tragedy is when a small child dies from the flu. This was criminal malfeasance compounded with lies. Even more troubling is the lib media's compliance in sweeping the entire mess under the rug ….it is now "disappeared" for the Orwellian voter….who will not refer to it on Tuesday.

  • Mark Corby

    Charles Woods and Patricia Smith needs to shut their mouths and stop making the death of their sons a political tool for their fellow repubes. LIES LIES LIES!! Shame on these traitors!! By the way, the president and his administration did not kill your sons and in Woods’ case he killed himself by not following direct

    orders and playing hero with his life. It’s a disgrace that the republican party and the father of a fallen soldier are obviously using the attack and lost American lives for political gain through the use of outright lies and fabrications. You can be damn sure the president continues to have my vote and that of millions of other Americans who not only REFUSE TO BE DUPED BY PEOPLE LIKE CHARLES WOODS AND

    PATRICIA SMITH, but can easily smell something fishy on the way to the voting booth.

      >:(

      At least the sons DID SOMETHING and TRIED, and died with honor, rather than sitting around with their thumbs up their rear ends!

      At the end of the day, the deaths at the Embassy are laid to rest at Obama's doorstep, and would have simply had 2 less deaths to their toll if the two others had done nothing. It was Obama's inaction that caused all those deaths.

      "It's a disgrace"

      You are a disgrace defending a treasonous administration.

    • Andy Lewis

      Joe Biden, is tha you?

        Sorry, that reply was meant for Mark Corby.

      Hey Corby, take a long walk on a short pier.

    • patriot till death

      Screw you communist liberal, you are the enemy and will be viewed as such

    "So far the only coverage of Patricia Smith’s statement comes from two local channels. Meanwhile not too long ago, Cindy Sheehan’s pre-election tantrums had nationwide coast-to-coast coverage."

    Par for the course. Things won't change until we root out communist socialism from all levels of our schools.

  • mah29001

    It's interesting the Left promoted Michael Berg, the father of Nick Berg who was beheaded by the same Islamic fanatics in Iraq, but then when Obama let's just as many people die they're suddenly nowhere to be found.

  • Magician

    Maybe that's because this didn't actually happen, so there's nothing to actually cover.

    • Mary Sue

      Oh yeah, because nothing caused the ambassador to die. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. [/sarcams]

    Cindy Sheehan is pushing an agenda? LMAO, what an evil woman she is for having an agenda to ends wars and promote peace. Evil woman indeed.

      "Cindy Sheehan is pushing an agenda? LMAO, what an evil woman she is for having an agenda to ends wars and promote peace. Evil woman indeed."

      Ending wars by destroying consensus in the USA is evil, unless you hate the USA. What can we discern then from your sarcasm and her actions?

      Cindy SHeehan is Doing It Wrong.

    • zalukas

      A memo to Cindy Sh..can fan. We didn't start that war, the "Religion of Peace" did.

      Remember people jumping from WTC to escape fiery death? That's when war began!

      • Mary Sue

        actually if you want to get technical, it started when Carter allowed the Shah of Iran to be overthrown…

  • fanlad

    A total failure of leadership from the White House, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, The State Department, The department of defense, and from the Director of the CIA. Not to mention the complicit main stream media allowing this to be one of the biggest cover ups in our current history. And the false narrative continues even to this day.
    The four dead Americans call out for truth and justice. Our prayers and thoughts go out to the grieving family members. New leadership is in order.

  • pierce

    Obama did nothing, and in doing, that he did kill your son. He is a LIAR, an out and out Liar, and not worthy of a 2nd term. Fanlad, It is a total failure of leadership of the White House. It has nothing to do with any one else, or any thing else.

  • Elba Medrano

    What do we need to do to start an impeachment or does anybody knows for sure if one is in progress I will not stop does soldiers died for our country one nation under God and they don't want their death to be in vain

  • Darren

    It's because she's wrong and also because there's no gain in questioning the grief of a mother so whether she's wrong or right she's entitled to her feelings and out of respect I wouldnt see many cable news stations putting her on the air or arguing with her stance publicly as there is no win there. You are either going to look like a cold business attacking a grieving mother, or even worse look like your attacking a grieving mother in defense of the president which is bad journalism on both fronts. Fox news gets an easy win, also funny that even the quote cant seperate the fact that she feels like the president is responsible based solely on the Fox coverage.
