Libya: As the father of a former Navy SEAL slain at Benghazi wonders why our secretary of state lied to him, we wonder why our CIA director abetted a lie that contradicted counterterrorism officials and the FBI.
During the 2004 presidential campaign, a media eager to deny George W. Bush a second term made Cindy Sheehan, who lost a son in Iraq, a national heroine and reported virtually her every word and move.
"Cindy Sheehan," gushed NBC News, "is single-handedly bringing the Iraq debate to Mr. Bush's doorstep."
But nobody in a mainstream media eager to see President Obama get a second term is bringing the Benghazi debate to the White House doorstep. On all the Sunday talk shows, when Benghazi was brought up, the moderator quickly changed subjects.
On CNN's "State of the Union," Candy Crowley, who came to the aid of President Obama on Benghazi during the second presidential debate, sloughed off attempts by two GOP officials to broach Benghazi.
When Newt Gingrich raised Benghazi on ABC's "This Week," host George Stephanopoulos quickly changed topics. NBC's David Gregory cut off GOP panelist Carly Fiorina when she brought up Benghazi, promising to "get to that a little later." Of course, he never did.
Nor is Gregory or the others likely to pursue an interview with Charles Woods, father of Ty Woods, one of the SEALs killed in Benghazi.
A few conservative outlets have talked to him, notably Fox News, and he's had much to say about how and why his son was abandoned by the government he served.
Woods is especially angry "that apparently the White House situation room was watching our people die in real time, as this was happening."
If Cindy Sheehan had made such a comment, it would have led every evening newscast.

I literally hate the MSM and their minions. Their bias is so obvious and yet people believe they are telling them truth. How easily deceived people are.
"Cindy Sheehan," gushed NBC News, "is single-handedly bringing the Iraq debate to Mr. Bush's doorstep." But nobody in a mainstream media eager to see President Obama get a second term is bringing the Benghazi debate to the White House doorstep.
Remember that Cindy Sheehan is one of several liberals, along with our politicians, who helped the flotillas of cargo ships get to ports in the Middle East to support the ARAB SPRING.
The reason Ambassador Stevens is dead, is due to the (DEM)Socialist Party of the US providing support to the Muslim Brotherhood Movement. The US is being taken over from the inside, and will probably make an official announcement on Dec. 21, 2012. Good Ole Valerie Jarrett. The head of the New Socialist Caliphate of the Western Hemisphere.
my hatred of the media formerly known as mainstream is only surpassed by my disgust of liberals and progressives
WHAT was the Cindy;s son;s name???
Apparently so. For a while anyway. If the Internet is right for a while journalists, politicians and movie stars flocked to Cindy Sheehan.
But after with time she got a reputation as a crank and faded into obscurity. Now she's being sued by the IRS and running for vice president on Rosanne Barr's Peace and Freedom Party ticket.

THANK YOU!!!! CASEY SHEEHAN....poor soul.
I saw it. This is exactly as it happened. They are doing their best to keep this out of their news.
Alternatively I don't see Romney doing much to make this a election issue. He brought it up in the second debate and then dropped it after that.
Now they (MSM) have the hurricane to talk about to avoid this until after the election. If O wins then the MSM will suddenly be fascinated with the story afterward.
Worst case scenario...
Can an unarmed drone see a mortar position laser designation by a former Navy Seal? If a drone (same) weighing the better part of a ton hits a mortar position manned by Jihadi’s, would that represent a bad day for said mortar crew?
Now the hurricane will make it that much easier for the media to avoid focusing on the questions about Benghazi.
And the MSM is cheering the diversion from Benghazi. Do we need 24/7 reporting on the damage? My heart goes out to the people caught in this horrid storm, but the media - getting its marching orders from the WH - will give us nonstop reporting. I want to hear more on the debacle known as Benghazi. They are hoping this will help zero’s sagging re-election bid.
The media makes me sick, obama makes me sick and so right now - I guess I’m sick. LOL
After we politically destroy THE FOREIGNERS REGIME then we finish the job and financially destroy the leftist anti american punks infested in the MSM. Both deserve nothing better.
