Tyrone Woods-Hero of Benghazi-Court martialed posthumously?

October 30, 2012

Just a question….(see title)

Remember, both he and Glen Doherty ignored direct orders, but in so doing saved thirty lives while forfeiting their own.  In one way, the behavior could be said to be exemplifying all that is best about America and American Values.  How many movies, stories, and books feature a hero that ignores the questionable order of some far off superior in order to save the lives of real live individuals?  Heroes?  Yes, but in contradiction to the rules and thus the somewhat facetious question I asked in the title of this article.

I’m wondering, considering the circumstances,  if even our illustrious president would take things that far….

On the other hand, we may not need to worry about it come November 6, 2012
