As the left attacks President Donald Trump over his response to the death of Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a Benghazi survivor delivered a brutal reality check to critics.
Kris Paronto, the former U.S. Army Ranger who survived the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, slammed the “leftist journalists & liberalists” who have been angrily spouting off at Trump’s handling of Khashoggi’s death at Turkey’s Saudi Arabian Embassy.
“Where in the hell were you” Paronto asked, condemning the hypocrisy over the media’s downplaying of the controversial decisions made by the Obama administration that cost the lives of Americans in Benghazi, including the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stephens.
Leftist journalists & liberalists screaming that the President isn’t doing enough to the Saudi’s because one of their own was killed.Where in the hell were you when @BarackObama left 30+ AMERICANS to die in Benghazi Libya including an Ambassador?!!You all are a disgrace .

Saudi Arabian officials claimed Friday that Khashoggi died after an alleged fist fight inside the embassy, prompting cries that the government of the Middle Eastern country was lying and calling on Trump to retaliate.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson appeared to echo Paronto’s general sentiments, asking on “Tucker Carson Tonight” Friday why the left has been silent over the regime’s previous murderous acts.
“The usual head-nodders on TV seem stunned by the news. They can hardly believe that a bloodthirsty, medieval theocracy would do this. Really? The Saudis? The same people that cut off the hands of thieves and behead adulterers in public parks?” Carlson asked sarcastically.
He went on to slam the “wave of false-posturing on display by our own mindless ruling class.”
Paronto’s scathing rebuke on Twitter was applauded while it sparked fresh condemnation over former President Barack Obama’s mishandling of the Benghazi attack.
Well said Kris…. the hypocrisy is truly unbelievable. Thank you for your service

IT MAKES PERFECT SENSE TO ME! There’s an election coming up! The left is desperate to connect the right and President Trump with every possible issue from every possible angle that they can. The usual spin, political posturing, illegitimate criticism and theatrics from the left!!

Lest not forget how Obama was chummy with the King of Saudi Arabia while they were beheading people in the street. In the yr this pic was taken 151 were executed -75 of them foreigners. Amnesty Int’l begged him for help and nothing. pic.twitter.com/rRFFsNflCH

Exactly!!! Only when it fits The Left’s narrative, it becomes an issue, fucking sickening and an insult to every military member active and veterans alike!!! ????

Amazing how deep (or shallow) their double standards are.

The media was too busy selling Obama /Hillary’s lies about Benghazi, blaming the “spontaneous” mob violence on a video that no one watched, instead of calling it the planned terrorist attack that it was. Manufactured outrage of the media on display now over Khasoggi.
