Today is the seventeeth anniversary of 9/11 and it’s also the sixth anniversary of the Benghazi attacks.
Now that Obama is back, he’s going after everything that affects his own legacy. This means he needs to attack the public’s perception of what happened in Benghazi. In his comeback speech, Obama referred to the events of Benghazi as “Conspiracy Theories.”
Obama claimed Republican lawmakers were destroying America by causing, “division and resentment and paranoia” by propagating “wild conspiracy theories, like those surrounding Benghazi, or my birth certificate.”
Having lived through it, Benghazi survivor, Kris Paronto takes issue with the former president’s characterization of that event. He calls Obama’s remarks,
“…a slap in the face.”
“It makes all of us tremendously angry, because he’s trying to rewrite history and say that Benghazi didn’t happen.”
“It’s very angering to me, and I just have to fight back and put the truth out and fight back as much as I can.”
Paronto is angered that just like Hillary did, Obama is campaigning off the back of Benghazi.
“Hillary said, ‘What difference does it make?…And now you got Obama calling it a conspiracy. They continually talk down the family members, and not honor the family members of Tyrone Woods, Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Glenn Doherty…It’s disgraceful and sickening, and it really does anger me. “
“When you see and hear what Barack Obama’s it’s, “Oh my gosh again. I still can’t believe he’s not taking responsibility for his failures and leaving us to die. Which is essentially what he did and what Hillary Clinton did.”
“But then you remember the courage and the sacrifice of especially my teammates — Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty — who gave everything,”
“So, you try to find the positives of it, the positives of the great American spirit and the positives of patriotism, of service members giving of themselves so others may live.”

Paronto was recently suspended on Twitter for offending a snowflake, and was forced to delete that tweet in order to have sandbox privileges again.
And in another interview Paronto said he’d like to ‘choke’ Obama,
“It just raises the bile inside of me. I had a hard time just watching the speeches. I just wanted to see what he had to say. And when that came across, I just wanted to reach through the screen and just grab him — grab him and choke him.”
When asked the Secret Service declined to confirm or deny that they were investigating any ‘threat’ made by Paronto.
