Army Ranger Kris ‘Tanto’ Paronto, the security contractor who survived the terrorist attack in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, that left four Americans dead, took a second crack this month at Hillary Clinton on social media.
In response to the hurricane damage Puerto Rico is now dealing with, Clinton bitterly tweeted on Sunday that the White House “should send the Navy, including the USNS Comfort, to Puerto Rico now. These are American citizens.”
The sheer hypocrisy proved to be more than Paronto could bear.
Firing back, the Benghazi hero asked Clinton where this sense of urgency was in 2012.
“Wish u had that sense of urgency while u were watching the ISR feed during our 5th firefight in B-ghazi ?or did u not consider us Americans?” he tweeted.
Paronto “was part of the CIA annex security team that responded to the terrorist attack on the US Special Mission in Benghazi, Libya, September 11th, 2012, helping to save over 20 lives while fighting off terrorists from the CIA Annex for over 13 hours,” according to the bio on his website,
His story is told in the book “13 Hours,” written by Mitchell Zuckoff and five surviving annex security team members, which was later made into a movie.
Paronto had some fiery words for Clinton earlier this month on the anniversary of the Benghazi attack when the former secretary of state marked the day on social media, saying, “We’ll never forget.”
As part of his response, Paronto tweeted: “The fact is u did nothing 2 help.”

One thing is certain, while the Obama administration forgot about those brave Americans in Benghazi, the American people have not, as seen in the reaction on social media.
Here’s a sampling of responses to Paronto’s tweet from Twitter:
