Benghazi Mom Responds to Obama’s “Phony Scandals” Crack: “My Son is Dead. How Could That be Phony?”

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.


Obama once called the dead in Benghazi “bumps in the road”. Bumps in the road that were not optimal. In his speech, he dismissed the investigation of Benghazi by Congress as a waste of time and a “phony scandal.”

Now Pat Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, who was murdered in the attack has a response for Obama.

Pat Smith has had some harsh words for Obama in the past.

“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, is now blaming President Barack Obama for her son’s death.

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.

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.”

The Obama Administration has retaliated her by keeping her out of events honoring her son, claiming she isn’t immediate family.

    “Not immediate family”? This is more absurd than Clinton’s “I did not have sex” excuse.

  • Demosthenes

    I feel for these parents. The only thing that seems to matter to all of the governmental pigs is power.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Pat Smith and Charles Woods met with inexplicable “accidents” for defying The One and charging him with murder. It’s the “Chicago way,” you know.

    When a mother is not “immediate family” to her own son: an 0bama mental pretzel.

    Sorry Ms. Smith but you voted for Obama. Actions have consequences. Your son’s death is merely an inconvenient consequence of Obama’s love of Islamic terrorists. Too bad you didn’t do some research on Obama before you voted for him. He doesn’t care about white people and certainly doesn’t want to see Islam and it’s terrorism defeated.

    About ‘Benghazi’, there were just 18 minutes ‘missing’ on the Nixon tapes, yet the where-about’s of the Commander-in-Chief for 7/8 hours, while Benghazi’ burned, & American’s ‘died’ is still MYSTERY?

    gramps,.

    Really, her son didn’t die in vain. On the political level, his death means one more opportunity for the Leftists to be exposed as evil manipulative anti-American radicals. And each one of these events is like another brick being built in a wall that will be their eventual prison.

    I just wonder how much suffering they’re going to drag us all through before daylight comes again. Probably about 70 years – that’s the average lifespan of a hard Left regime.

    The President was referring to the phony IRS scandal.

    “State Department official Sean Smith was chatting on the computer with a fellow online gamer Tuesday when attackers began gathering outside the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

    Smith, an avid gamer and married father of two, typed out a harrowing message to the friend: “assuming we don’t die tonight. We saw one of our ’police’ that guard the compound taking pictures.”

    Hours later, Smith, a State Department computer expert, was dead, killed apparently by smoke inhalation as flames swept through the consulate building. Also killed in the attack were U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and two other Americans whose names have yet to be released.

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton hailed Smith, who’d served the State Department for 10 years at U.S. ..

    It is a verbal contract from the chief law enforcement officer of the USA. Sounds like a law suit.
