Benghazi Victim’s Mother Furious No Officials Fired

Pat Smith said she still knows very little about what happened in Benghazi nearly a year ago.

Originally reported 1:53 p.m. Aug. 23.

The mother of one of three San Diegans killed last year in the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, told a local television station Wednesday that she is angry that no State Department officials have been fired.

Pat Smith's son, Sean, grew up in Clairemont and graduated from Mission Bay High School in 1995.

Ex-Navy SEALS Glen Doherty, 42, of Encinitas, and Tyrone Woods, 41, of Imperial Beach, were also killed, along with Ambassador Chris Stevens. On the side, Doherty was a fitness trainer at an Encinitas gym, and Woods used to own a bar.

Hey Libi no one is forced to join the military, and for many young men and now women that is a way out of poverty, myself included. Not everyone can afford to go to college and this American Dream you talk is only possible because young men and women volunteer to put their lives on the line so you can take advantage of those rights and freedoms and bitch about everything from behind your computer.

'...that is a way out of poverty...' getting government subsidies isn't a 'way out of poverty' ... it's a way into poverty.... our military & debt expand and the working class population shrinks .... the gop are right - give people government subsidies they'll never learn to support themselves....

So what Libi is saying is that the military should not be paid.
