Eleven years after September 11th, 2001, in 2012, the United States Embassy in Benghazi, Libya was assaulted by Islamic militants who wanted blood.
In the attack, they killed four Americans, US Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Foreign Service Management Officer Sean Smith, along with CIA operatives: Glen Doherty and Tyrone S. Woods.
These men were denied extra security by the State Department despite the growing unrest in Benghazi. Our government made a lot of mistakes: blaming the violence on the protest of a video, covering up that fact, along with several others. Now we hear from men working security there did in fact receive a “stand down” order at the compound. What does this mean, time will tell.
Whatever comes of this, those four Americans who died during that evil attack deserve justice! I hope they receive it on Patriots Day.
For all of the victims and families of both September 11th, 2001 and 2012, we will NEVER forget the sacrifice!
