  • Myron Blaine letter: ‘Yes, I’m terrified’

  • ‘Yes, I’m
    terrified’
    People have started asking me if I’m “worried” about the election.
    Sometimes I want to say “Yes, I’m terrified.”  Too many people below the age 40 have forgotten what America was in the past. They don’t see the differences in attitude about God, Family, and Country. The ones of us who lived through the Viet Nam years - many of us - came away with a bad taste for the government politicizing wars and spending lives of young men and not letting soldiers do their job. The liberal media loved it. It made “good press.”  They didn’t care - and still don’t.
    The fiasco at the American Embassy in Benghazi, Libya tells us a lot about this administration. To deny aid to American souls in danger on foreign soil is nothing less than treason.  Secretary of Defence Leon Pannetta should face a court martial, at the very least should resign. Three men on the ground at Benghazi should be awarded a Medal of Honor - posthumously.
    Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty, and one other rightly ignored orders to stand down to go to the aid of Ambassador Stevens and other embassy employees. All of them were killed. Murdered. Reports say Obama would
    not even look Woods’ father in the eye as he offered an “apology.” It’s a disgrace to America, the American military, and everything this country should stand for and defend. Vote Obama out.
