THE BATTLING BOYS OF BENGHAZI

A SHORT POEM YOU WON’T FORGET.

“A bump in the road” …. remember that calloused statement?

I do recall, the President referring to the Benghazi incident as “a bump in the road.” Recently, I heard an ex-Navy Seal being interviewed on Fox News regarding a book he has written about how to handle crisis situations in our lives. At the end of the interview he asked if he could make a comment on Benghazi and of course the anchor said yes. He then thanked Fox News for keeping the Benghazi story in the news, since other news organizations are not. He said the Seals who died deserve the public knowing the truth about the whole affair.

The poem was written by a MARINE CORPS Officer (ANON).

THE BATTLING BOYS OF BENGHAZI

We’re the battling boys of Benghazi.

No fame, no glory, no paparazzi.

Just a fiery death in a blazing hell

Defending our country we loved so well.

It wasn’t our job, but we answered the call,

fought to the Consulate and scaled the wall.

We pulled twenty Countrymen from the jaws of fate

Led them to safety, and stood at the gate.

Just the two of us, and foes by the score,

But we stood fast to bar the door.

Three calls for reinforcement, but all were denied,

So we fought, and we fought, and we fought ’til we died.

We gave our all for our Uncle Sam,

But Barack Obama didn’t give a damn.

Just two dead seals who carried the load

No thanks to us; we were just “Bumps In The Road”.

Now what? Do we act like the press and give a pass to the incompetent people who literally sat there in the White House and watched the Seal’s execution on live streaming video and did absolutely nothing? The Obama Administration obviously won’t be held accountable because we apparently accept Hillary Clinton’s statement,”What difference does it make?”

OUTRAGEOUS! Obama’s State Department Orders Marines To Destroy Their Weapons And Evacuate Yemen UNARMED!

Gateway Pundit

Obama’s State Department ordered Marines to destroy and surrender their weapons before they would be allowed to leave Yemen.

Keep in mind that Marines are taught from day one: NEVER SURRENDER YOUR WEAPON!

Stars and Stripes have reported that Yemen rebels are seizing U.S. weapons and vehicles as the Western Embassies close.

Fox News reports the following:

UPDATE, 9:57p ET: The Marine Corps has clarified what Marines did under State Department orders in Yemen following the evacuation of the U.S. embassy.

Crew served weapons were destroyed at the embassy, while Marines’ personal weapons were “rendered inoperable” at the airport, and their destroyed components were left behind.

The Marine Corps does not dispute the reporting that CENTCOM is outraged over weapons being rendered inoperable.

Read the full statement below:

The Marine Security Force left the American embassy in Yemen for the movement to the airfield as part of the “ordered departure” with only personal weapons. All crew served weapons were destroyed at the embassy prior to movement. None of them were ‘handed over’ in any way to anyone. The destruction of weapons at the embassy and the airport was carried out in accordance with an approved destruction plan.

Upon arrival at the airfield, all personal weapons were rendered inoperable in accordance with advance planning. Specifically, each bolt was removed from its weapons body and rendered inoperable by smashing with sledgehammers. The weapons bodies, minus the bolts, were then separately smashed with sledgehammers. All of these destroyed components were left at the airport — and components were scattered; no usable weapon was taken from any Marine at Sana’a airport.

To be clear: No Marine handed a weapon to a Houthi, or had one taken from him.

Megyn Kelly’s air quotes in a Fox News update report below suggests that the administration is forcing Marines to parse their statements. The Illusion-in-Chief wants the reports adjusted to “appear” as if the weapons were not really taken or destroyed. But when you render a weapon inoperable—and forced to leave it behind—isn’t that effectively the same thing?

Another Megyn Kelly interview with General Jack Keane posted at RightScoop offers a harsh criticism of the order to surrender weapons. Gen. Keane is wondering if the order came from some “Mindless stupid bureaucrat.”

Uh, yeah… and just guessing that the mindless bureaucrat’s initials may be BHO. Or as Mark Levin phrased it more perfectly: “We have [Rashidi] Kalidi in the Oval Office.” Can Congress and the Senate put impeachment back on the table now?

 

Dishonored and Disrespected: Obama Disarmed US Marines at Inaugural Parade

A new administration policy? Barack Obama disarmed the US Marines at the Inaugural parade this year. disarmed marines

During the Obama Inaugural last month the administration disarmed the US Marines marching in the parade. The Examiner reported:

Marines Guarding Embassy in Egypt Not Permitted to Carry Live Ammo

Moonbattery

Only after having read Dangerous Diplomacy — which documents the moonbattery with which the State Department is rotten to the very core — could I believe this:

U.S. Marines defending the American embassy in Egypt were not permitted by the State Department to carry live ammunition, limiting their ability to respond to attacks like those this week on the U.S. consulate in Cairo.

Marines down on Obama

Washington Examiner

The Marine Corps Times previews its cover story about anti-Obama Marines at their ‘Battle Rattle’ blog.

According to the article, of the 792 active-duty troops and mobilized reservists who responded to this year’s Military Times Poll, 44 percent said that they disapprove of the way Obama is handling his job as commander in chief.
