Benghazi Survivor Kris 'Tanto' Paronto Chastises the Left for Criticizing Trump Over Khashoggi Response


No matter how much the truth might sting at times, sometimes the unvarnished truth is what’s needed to put things in perspective.

Former U.S. Army Ranger, CIA security contractor and Benghazi survivor Kris “Tanto” Paronto took to Twitter on Saturday to chastise the media for the constant criticism of President Trump concerning the disappearance and alleged murder of Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Here’s what Paronto tweeted:

Critics say that Benghazi is a non-issue now because it happened over six years ago. But, tell that to the people who survived the attack and lived to tell the tale to a media that never wanted to hear the truth.

Four brave men died during the September 2012 attack on two U.S. government facilities — U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens, U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith, CIA security contractors and former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.

I didn’t see the media get in the same uproar towards then-president Barack Obama or then-U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the deliberate targeting and murder of four U.S. citizens. Instead, they ran with the false narrative that the attack was instigated by a YouTube video.

If what is being reported about the possible demise of Khashoggi is true, then the U.S. should absolutely look into possible ramifications and consequences towards the Saudi government. But, there’s this little thing that the media typically likes to ignore these days — due process.

Why is it so incredibly difficult for the media to wait until the facts come out to condemn a nation, or any singular person for that matter? I’ll tell you why…

Because Donald Trump isn’t the president the media anointed to sit in the Oval Office.
