Benghazi survivor to anyone mad at Trump over Saudi journo death: 30 Americans left to die in Libya. Where the hell were you?

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.

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.
