In addition to the anniversary of the September 11, 2001, worst terrorist attack on American soil, this week also marks the five-year anniversary of the terrorist attack in Benghazi, which killed U.S. Ambassador, Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans in 2012.
Later this month, Ahmed Abu Khattala, the Libyan militant accused of leading the Benghazi attacks, is set to go on trial in Washington. However, U.S. District Court Judge Christopher Cooper has ruled that critical evidence against Khattala cannot be used in court.
Former U.S. Army Ranger, Kris “Tonto” Paronto, one of the survivors of the Benghazi attack, joined Dana Loesch today on “Dana” to share his thoughts on the politics surrounding the horrific incident.
“Benghazi is surrounded by politics, surrounded by the ineptness of the Obama administration, and surrounded by the lack of integrity by Hilary Clinton and her staff,” stated Paronto, adding, “I think a lot [of people] who haven’t seen the story need to see it, and get out of the political realm a bit to see what it is. That’s sacrifice and honor and courage and what this country stands for and it’s epitomized in Benghazi. And a lot of people miss that.”
