THE BATTLING BOYS OF BENGHAZI


Do you recall the President referring to the Benghazi incident as "a bump in the road?"
Today 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 an anonymous Marine Corps officer:
"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 and Hillary didn't give a damn.
Just two dead Seals who carried the load, No thanks to us...we were just "Bumps in the Road".
So, will this reach every American with a computer?
Or do we act like the press and give a pass to the people who literally sat there in the White House and watched the Seals' execution on live streaming video and did absolutely nothing?
"What difference does it make?"
And she wants to be the next President!

Technically I am still not posting....but I had to post that! It is too important not to. Thank you, it is a testament of who you are that you think of others at a time such as this for you.

Thank you BW...but as I stated above...only to post this particular post...I don't want to see Hillary in the White House...I want to see her behind bars.

Inquiring Elmo wants to know what it is. Thank Q.

Thanks. I'm thinking it might be a Scrub Jay, but I'm not sure if they're in your neck of the woods.
I'll keep checking to see the picture. If the Bacon Eater posts it for you I'll see it for sure.

A fucking bump in the road?!! My former Navy Seal dad would be spinning in his grave over this one.
