Lest we forget Benghazi, as the media and political classes desire…

by Tim Condon

“A source present the night of the attack says that the GRS team that was defending the annex asked where the air support was at midnight. Former SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were killed 5 hours and 15 minutes later.”  —FoxNews.com, Nov. 4, 2012

A TRIBUTE TO THOSE LEFT TO DIE, written by Col. William Bauer, USMC (Whoops: Authorship os this poem is disputed, as explained HERE.)

We’re the Battling Bastards of Benghazi,
no fame, no glory, no paparazzi.

Just a fiery death in a blazing hell,
defending the country we loved so well.

It wasn’t our job, but we answered the call,
fought to the consulate, and scaled the wall.

We pulled twenty countrymen from the jaws of fate,
led them to safety, and stood at the gate.

Just the two of us, and foe by the score,
but we stood fast to bar the door.

We called for reinforcement, but it was denied,
so we fought, and we fought, and we fought, and we died.

We gave our all for our Uncle Sam,
and Obama didn’t give a damn,
just two dead SEALS, who carried the load,
no thanks to us, we were just BUMPS IN THE ROAD!!

    Nice tribute and so true. Canadian free press has an article about there was no consulate office in Benghazi, only a huge CIA compound that was running weapons to Syria thru Turkey. Maybe this is why the truth is so hidden, Could be we were hit by Russians or Syrians. We have to do something to prop up the dollars for oil.

      Greetings, Frogman. I see you have asserted that the poem was written and copyrighted by John
      Edwin Roberts. Are you he? I have checked with the U.S. Copyright
      office, and it does not appear that the poem has been copyrighted. Even
      so, I would want to note the authorship if it can be confirmed. What can
      you tell me about it, and him?
