Appearing on a segment of “Geraldo at Large” on Fox News Sunday night, the father of slain Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods challenged President Obama to come clean about all that transpired during the terrorist raid on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi last month.
In a direct appeal to the camera, Charles Woods reminded the president that Tyrone had died a hero in the service of his country and respectfully asked for answers:
First of all, I am not angry at all. In fact, Mr. President, if I had the opportunity of speaking to you face to face, and I would really love to, I would say this: ‘Mr. President, I respect your office. However, if you are responsible for the death of my son, I totally forgive you.’
This is about honor, courage and about love for America. And remember this, Mr. President: My son and the others died heroes and it’s better to die the death of a hero than it is to live the life of a coward. If you are responsible for the death of my son, I forgive you, I love you. I also love America.
The emotional segment ended with an overly-dramatic embrace from Geraldo who was so caught up in the moment that he proclaimed his love for Woods and planted a big kiss on the shocked man’s face.
The Daily Caller captured the awkward moment on tape:
