The last words on his tongue make the lies Obama and Hillary gave us so much more egregious.
We have the testimony of Scott Wicklund, the Ambassador’s bodyguard.
It is part of the testimony in the case against Ahmed Abu Khattala, who is on trial for the attack in Benghazi.
While the Embassy burned, and those in it fought desperately for their lives, a ‘Deputies meeting’ argued for hours about whether any rescuers should show up in ‘official’ US uniforms and marked vehicles… to keep the Libyan Government of the day happy.
The embassy was thrown under the bus. Whatever they were going to do, was going to be on their own.
Much like it was thrown under the bus when Obama and Hillary lied to the public.
As bodyguard to U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Wickland was the last person to see him and an aide alive as they tried to escape a burning mission villa. Wickland also was at the wheel of an armored car evacuating U.S. security personnel that ran a gauntlet of hostile fire to the CIA annex, only to have the attack trail them and mortar rounds kill two more Americans and wound one of Wickland’s close friends just feet away from him on a rooftop. — DailyMail
Wickland and Stevens were holed up in the safe room when what he described as an RPG hit the outer doors of the building.
“I didn’t know that we were going to make it out of there alive,”
The building was set on fire and the attackers fell back.
They knew that the wouldn’t be able to stay in the ‘safe room’ if it was filled with smoke. They had to act.
With one hand on his M-4 rifle and the other on Stevens, Wickland said he last saw the ambassador and Smith crawling behind him as they tried to reach a bedroom with a window. ‘To this day, I don’t even know where they went,” Wickland said, his voice catching with emotion during testimony. “I was right next to him and then, that’s it.”
Wickland climbed out of the window alone, then reentered the compound four times to try to find the men without success, vomiting from the smoke, coming under the fire when he was outside, and calling on his radio for help , he said.
Finally, he climbed to the roof, pulling up a ladder after him, testifying, “That’s when I knew [Stevens and Smith] were dead.” —Washington Post
This was known before.
But what we know now really should haunt everyone who voted for Hillary. While she argued about ‘protocols’ of what rescuers should wear — Ambassador Stevens was looking after his subordinate… trying to protect HIS life.
“When I die, you need to pick up my gun and keep fighting.”
When I die.
HE knew help wasn’t coming.
And that’s not the worst of it.
Now, WE all know WHY it never came.
In the recent Vegas massacre, there were many heroes, but they often go unnoticed by the Media (D).
Doug Giles tips his hat to you heroes:
If this enrages you, all these years later, and makes you want to hold someone accountable for it, you’re the kind of person who will appreciate the Patriotism and fight in this guy’s story:
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa’s A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love this.
