Skip to comments.SEAL’s father to Obama: ‘Better to die the death of a hero than it is to live the life of a coward’

In an appearance on Fox News Channels Geraldo at Large Sunday night, Charles Woods, father of slain Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, said President Barack Obama did not do all he could to save the four Americans who were killed in a terrorist raid on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
Obama should have reacted sooner, he said, because the consulate was American soil.
I was contacted by military personnel yesterday, who told me an interesting fact. And that is any consulate anywhere in the world is American soil, Woods said. Any attack on an American consulate is an attack on American soil. There were American citizens that were attacked for seven hours on American soil a couple thousand miles away from Washington, D.C.
My question of the president would be this: Your Honor, I respect your office as president. But if this attack on American citizens, on American soil, happened 2,000 miles away from Washington, D.C. say in Los Angeles or in Seattle would you have waited seven hours before you sent the first airplane? Would you have waited seven hours until the attack was over? Would you have waited a couple of days until you had all of the videos and all the information before you responded in a responsible military way?
Host Geraldo Rivera pressed Woods on his argument and suggested that he was angry at the loss of his son. That wasnt the case, Woods explained...

A coward dies a thousand deaths, a hero dies one
It’s a damn shame. He spent his life watching our backs but America didn’t watch his. Apparently, the current U.S. Government doesn’t give a damn about the military.
Tomorrow morning Obama will react promptly...I heard he’s going to repel out of a Blackhawk helicopter into Battery Park on Manhattan with a backpack full of baby formula.
Just wait and see!
True of the consulate of any country in the world. Black letter international law for at least 400 years.
It want the ‘fog of war’, it was the’fag at war’ and bathhouse barry was taking the man who knew too much out.
Hopefully a Romney Administration will declassify all relevant documents/videos related to F&F and Benghazi and that Murderer in Chief along with his cabinet will finally be exposed for the lying, leftist scum they are.
The “Fog” of war? These clowns watched this live for 5-7 hours. There is no darn “fog” of war or any video that upset these higly trained terrorists.When mortars are fired as they were-it is “PREPLANNED fire.Any man here who has ever been in a US rifle company knows the weapons platoon has the 81MM’s,and;these tubes take lots of training. It takes time to put out the aiming stakes, align the baseplate, the sight, and these men were not amateurs. Few US types are great with mortars. Obama watched as Stevens(Sp) was sodomized like Ghadafi.Regardless,Obama is a liar. He missed National Security Briefings fron Sep 6-11. He damn sure was linked to this event even if he was in Waterloo, Iowa playing hoops when he was rushed to AF One. We have a part time clown for CIC. Our military and diplomats deserve so much better. This man is a disgrace.
Why doesn’t Papa Woods have the “Absolute Moral Authority” that Saint Cindy Sheehan had?
Your question answers itself.
“Why doesnt Papa Woods have the Absolute Moral Authority that Saint Cindy Sheehan had?”
He had the poor taste to express it on Fox...instead of PMSnbc
Interesting choice of wording for the Whore, don't you think. Not "grief-stricken," not "saddened" but "angry."
I'm assuming those are talking points from the Whore House, I mean White House.
