Kris Paronto, one of the heroes of Benghazi, is furious with Barack Obama over the former president’s recent remark about “conspiracy theories” surrounding the 2012 terror attack.
Speaking in Illinois on Friday, Obama said the politics of “division and resentment and paranoia” has found a home in the Republican Party, arguing that Republicans have embraced “wild conspiracy theories, like those surrounding Benghazi, or my birth certificate.”
On “Fox & Friends First” on Tuesday, Paronto slammed Obama for being dismissive of the 2012 terror attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, which left four Americans dead.
“To hear Obama say that, it’s just another slap in the face,” Paronto said. “It makes all of us tremendously angry because he’s trying to rewrite history and say that Benghazi didn’t happen.”
He said this just reinforces how important it is for Benghazi survivors and the family members of victims to speak the truth about what happened on September 11, 2012, and in the attack’s aftermath.
