Administration did nothing

Published 10:13am Friday, September 13, 2013

One year ago, Sept. 11, 2012, four brave Americans, Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, lost their lives while defending the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, while our current and grossly incompetent administration stood by, unconcerned, and did nothing.

Then this administration lied to the American people in an attempt to cloak their failures in secrecy by playing politics with American lives. As a former US Marine, I am grateful that one day those with blood on their hands, both directly and indirectly, (Obama, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice and all the others) will be held accountable for what this administration calls “a phony scandal.”

Most likely it will not happen in this lifetime, but I am totally confident it will in the next, as each and every one of us will stand in divine judgment before a righteous God, for the Bible says in Ecclesiastes 12:14, “For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.” (KJV)

– Lane Stott, Tryon
