Cindy Sheehan Was Cheered, Charles Woods Is Ignored

October 31, 2012

As the father of a former Navy SEAL slain at Benghazi wonders why our secretary of state lied to him, we wonder why our CIA director abetted a lie that contradicted counterterrorism officials and the FBI.

During the 2004 presidential campaign, a media eager to deny George W. Bush a second term made Cindy Sheehan, who lost a son in Iraq, a national heroine and reported virtually her every word and move.

“Cindy Sheehan,” gushed NBC News, “is single-handedly bringing the Iraq debate to Mr. Bush’s doorstep.”

But nobody in a mainstream media eager to see President Obama get a second term is bringing the Benghazi debate to the White House doorstep. On all the Sunday talk shows, when Benghazi was brought up, the moderator quickly changed subjects.

The Investors Business Daily editorial nails it. Read it all.

    I am holding onto hope for Nov 6. If that proves a o go, God forbid, then I expect a rally on the hill, like we did for the Tea Party. And somehow I will get there. This is completely unacceptable.

  2. Coffee says:

    Cindy Sheehan continued to protest against the war after Obama was elected but the media dropped her like a hot potato then.

    Bias? What bias?

  3. Garym says:

    Both men are/were American heroes. One got shamelessly exploited, the other one is completely ignored.

  4. Ragspierre says:

    The bottom line on Benghazi…

    Not. One. American. Should. Have. Died.

    Every American death was totally preventable.
