Charles Woods, father of former SEAL Ty Woods who was slain during the Benghazi attack, appeared on the Lars Larson radio show today. Mr. Woods told Larson that Obama’s behavior during the Sept 14 transfer of remains ceremony was strange and “cold.” He also said that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made him a promise:
Well, this is what Hillary did. She came over and, you know, she did the same thing, separately came over and talked with me. I gave her a hug, shook her hand, and she did not appear to be one bit sincere at all. She mentioned that thing about, “We’re going to have that person arrested and prosecuted that did the video.” That was the first time I had even heard about anything like that.
For what, was Clinton promising to have the filmmaker prosecuted?
Clinton made that promise on Sept 14, as the Obama administration was already swinging around toward blaming the film despite the evidence they had in hand that pointed toward terrorism. Later that week, the government would publicly identify the filmmaker, and then at midnight that Friday night, authorities arrested him and hauled him in for questioning. The media, tipped that the perp walk would happen, was there to capture it and broadcast it.
That filmmaker remains in jail and will not have a hearing until November 9, three days after the election.
Mr. Woods’ statement tells us that Hillary Clinton, the secretary of state, was already aware of an Obama administration plan to arrest him. This is evidence of a conspiracy at the very top of our government, both to deflect blame for the attack and to assault our First Amendment rights at the same time.
“Chilling” is applicable here, but barely does the situation justice.
