A very brave man died in the recent fiasco in Libya that killed an American ambassador and four other Americans. Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods was not ordered into the fray, but rather defied his superiors who ordered him to stand down and not to go and assist the Americans who were pinned down and under siege at a diplomatic compound a short distance from where he was.

Woods went and rescued people who had apparently been left to fend for themselves by the military, the State Department, the CIA and the White House. Tyrone Woods gave his life in service of a nation whose president downgraded the deadly attack to a protest and promptly flew off to Las Vegas for a fundraising event.

While Obama and his minions insisted the intelligence they were receiving at the time claimed the attack was a spontaneous offshoot of a street protest staged by Muslims against some obscure film, which was disrespectful of Mohammed, a slaughter was going on in Benghazi.

The calls for help from the Ambassador and those with him were ignored by everybody high enough in the Obama administration to do anything about it and would have gone completely unheeded had it not been for this lone Navy SEAL, who saw his duty and did it.

People, this is totally disgraceful, and exposes the incompetence of a presidential administration that is totally out of sync, out of line and out of control. For a firefight that cost four American lives to go on for seven hours and nobody, except one rank and file Navy SEAL, has the good sense and courage to do something about it. And his Commander in Chief flies away to Las Vegas on Air Force One without even having the decency to say it was a terrorist attack, should anger everyone who calls themselves an American.

Our nation and our future are in the hands of a man who refuses to take the blame for anything. He inherited the bad economy and four years later has only made it worse. He knew nothing about Fast and Furious and issues an executive order to prevent the congress from getting to the bottom of it and now he is completely innocent of not sending help to Americans dying at the hands of Islamic terrorists in a firefight that lasted 7 hours.

Well, if Obama is not responsible, please tell me who is.

A president is supposed to be a leader, a father figure who accepts the blame for everything that happens under his administration. He is responsible for the caliber of people he puts in decision making positions, it is his responsibility to stay informed to have staff who are savvy enough to know when something is important enough to be brought to his immediate attention. It is his duty to stay in Washington monitoring and managing any situation that endangers America and American lives, not flitting off to fund raisers and making frivolous television appearances.

Our nation is being run by a kindergarten class of petulant, pass the buck, politically correct, "its all America's fault", political juveniles with no practical experience, no sense of responsibility and no leader.

We are in one hell of a mess.

My deepest condolences to the family of Navy SEAL, Tyrone Woods, a hero who exemplified the highest calling of a warrior who truly cared about his fellow man.

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

– John 15:13
