Rush: How can you lie to a mother whose son has been killed in service to you?

Pat Smith, mother of slain State Department official Sean Smith, wants to know what happened to her son on 9/11 when he was killed in the terrorist attack. She’s met with Obama, Biden, Panetta, and Susan Smith and they promised her they would tell her what happened. And they’ve not told her anything other than about the video and protest, and she’s now speaking out.

This is powerful and disturbing:

Rush talked about this on his show today, asking how is it that they can lie to a mother whose son has just been killed in service to this country. it’s just mind boggling.

Here’s his commentary:

Mark Levin just said the other day that this administration treats our soldiers like a play thing, that he only cares about his own reelection. If this doesn’t underscore that, I don’t know what does.

    4 yrs of propagandizing America, will Ohio remain propagandized ?.

    • Why only Ohio? You focusing on NBC’s Plus 11 Dem Sample poll again? Conservatives fall like drones? I guess it is the truth because NBC says so! 2008 Banner yr Plus 7 in Ohio for Obama….in 2010 Reps Plus 1 in Ohio…But go ahead and believe that Plus 11….if this poll was adjusted accordingly…Romney would be up as well….Ohio at most will be Dem plus 3..AT MOST!

      Nevermind in Ohio:

      ARG has Romney up one Oct 5-9
      NBC Columbus Obama lead down to one 45/44 Oct 7-9
      Newsmax Zogby Obama’s 9 point lead down to one 45/44 Oct 8-10

      right Odin….but go believe NBC with a PLUS 11 Dem Sample. It was so bad even NBC when they published the poll ANNOUNCED OPENLY the 11 PLUS DEM SAMPLE….and he is up only 5??? Plus they have women at 55/45….2008….52/48..same in 2010….But keep believing that bologna!!

      Reports out of Ohio….GOP requests for Absentee are way up….3 counties that has Plus Dem samples in 2008 are all now requesting more GOP absentees….from 5 to 20 percent more…

      Ohio is moving to Romney every day

  • Rocco11

    You think the party of abortion (and Obama himself being a proponent of infanticide) gives a damn about human life?

    • Sober_Thinking

      Seriously… good point.

    • GREAT POINT. Spot on. They don’t give a rats arse about this poor lady. All they care about is reelection.

    • PFFV

      So true! Obama and his thugs are as evil as human beings can get. 4 more years of these criminals and we won’t be able to save our Republic or our childrens futures! We are on the brink of a revolution like we have never seen before if Obama gets re-elected! Mark my words!

  • practigal

    So disturbing and upsetting. Callous & heartless. And worse.

    Is this what Obama means by “bumps in the road?”

    Why did anyone vote for this man? How could they vote for him again?

    God Bless this mom and the other families…

    BTW… you can make calls for the Romney campaign from your home phone. Easy to sign up from his website. I just started today… Seeing this just fuels me to make more calls.

    • Rightstuff1

      The bumps in the road are the bodies that Obama is driving over as he makes a bid for re-election. Sounds callous but then he is callous, incapable and irresponsible.

  • kong1967

    I feel for the mother, but if there’s a larger agenda going on they will never tell her the truth. If she knows, we know. But we all know the truth anyway. Obama lied after people died.

    Her description of the Obama hug is repulsive. Bush deeply cared for our soldiers and he would try to visit them without cameras or the media present. Obama won’t do it unless he’s gauranteed to be on front page news. Bush would have treated her very well and probably would have teared up. Obama treated her with indifference. We have a cold, calculated imposter in the WH.

    • Sober_Thinking

      Amen. Spot on.

    • Orangeone

      Did she really think she would learn the truth? Perhaps she should call Brian Terry and Jamie Zapata’s families.

      • kong1967

        Remember how the left brought families forward that had sons (or daughters) that were fallen soldiers under Bush? Now they suddenly don’t care about them. They don’t help the liberal agenda any more. Sweep them under the rug and don’t tell them anything. You are right, she should know better than to believe Obama will give her the truth.

        • Orangeone

          Kong, I forgot all about that, great point!  He uses everyone and tosses them in the trash when he’s done.  How can people not see this?

          • kong1967

            They dont’ want to see it. If he serves their agenda they’re not going to notice or care that he uses people to get it done. The ends justifies the means.

            • Orangeone

              Another great point, thanks Kong!

              • kong1967

                You’re welcome.

  • Sandra123456

    No American should be treated like this, especially a grieving mother, father, wife…

    Obama and his people are the face of Evil.

    • sjmom

      Not just the face but the arm.

  • marketcomp

    This is why I do not understand why dear leader is not 20 points down. People need to understand that if he does this to our brave soldiers he would do it to anyone, even those receiving food stamps, disability, and everything offered by the Government.

    • Sandra123456

      I think he is and has been 20 points down. The MSM is just lying by polls to try to prop Obama up but watch their reporting change as the election nears and the MSM tries to keep some shreds of credibility.

    • sjmom

      It’s easy; keep them distracted with minutia while you betray them.

  • GreenBeretWay

    At the start of upcoming debate between Obama and Romney on foreign policy,Romney should escort this grieving mother on stage and cede the first 15 minutes of his time to allow her to relate her story and demand answers.

    • Joe



    • Sober_Thinking


    • Oh man, that’d be awesome. He ought to bring on Aaron Vaughn’s parents too.

      • Sandra123456

        …Or at least have them sitting in the front row of the audience staring at Obama.

        • Joe

          I hope the Campaign reads your comment

          Why not send it to them – nothing to lose!

        • Galatiansch2vs20

          And Greg Buckley Senior too!

      • Joe

        The list of families betrayed by ZERO would be too long to list

        What a disaster this monster is

        • NYGino

          I don’t know the number of families betrayed by Obama but as of today, October 12, 2012 the number of people betrayed by him is 314,558,750. That is the population of our country and since he took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America and failed to do that he betrayed all of us.

      • GreenBeretWay

        I know a few other Moms that given the opportunity would have Obama running off the stage for cover. Put my Mom up there,oh man,not good.

  • When one can commit treason, one has no problem of lying to the faces of the families of one’s victims. I am beyond outraged with dear leader’s administration, because he and the others do this crap willfully, and everything they do benifits only their muslim or commie brothers, and destroys lives of our military and their families.
    What makes me just as outraged is the fact that those who ought to be doing their freaking jobs and calling for impeachment and treason are not doing so. I’ve said before, I don’t give a flying flip about dingy harry or any of those who would block it- it will only show the majority of the citizens in this country that dingy is as bad as dear leader, and should be brought up himself on obstruction charges.
    I guess I just still don’t know enough about American government, but seems to me, our Founding Fathers would have done something by now, why the hell haven’t we?

    Evil is what they are, and evil doesn’t care about truth.

    • Sober_Thinking

      Evil runs from the truth. Note the similarity?

    • Sandra123456

      When Obama loses the election he still should be impeached to send a clear message that his kind of governance will not be tolerated.

      • Galatiansch2vs20

        He should be tried for the high crimes of treason he has committed against our nation!

        • tish59

          Sandra and Galatiansch2vs20 – Treason is right. I’ve been saying so for a loooong time. I dream daily about obama being found guilty of High Treason and packing a picnic lunch and champagne at his public execution.

          He is either of two things:

          1) A non-US citizen, for which we will execute for fraud on the American People, or
          2) A US citizen, qualifying for charges of Treason.

          The only question left is, which will he own up to? Fraud, or Traitor?
          Either way, he has to pay with his life. Although he can’t suffer and die enough to pay for the destruction of the lives of boys and girls, brothers and sisters, mom and dads, sons and daughters and friends and families of America.

          • Galatiansch2vs20

            He swore to uphold the Constitution- so he is a traitor regardless of whether he fraudulently got into the office in the first place or not. If he remains defiant against God, even if Obama does not receive the death penalty in this life, he will pay for his crimes in hell.

      • I’m beyond impeachment. I want full treason charges against him.

  • Joe

    This is another slap –

    in a long line of disrespect shown to The Military and ALL Americans

    I hope the family somehow has closure and peace!

    Where is the PRESS? –

    Oh Wait! – I forgot they are being bribed by ZERO!

    He is a piece of crap

    Like I always say:


    • Orangeone

      But she trusted the regime even after the last 16 months of Fast & Furious. Was she that overdosed on kool-aid?

  • Army_Pilot1967

    I feel badly for Ms. Smith. It has to be terrible to lose a son like that and then have some bureaucrats keep you in the dark about what actually happened. Just another indication of what obama and his administration think of people not named obama!!!!!

  • opinionatedhermit

    I cried when I heard this mother speak.

    Our daughter was caught up and repeatedly threatened during an internal civil war in West Africa a few years ago. My wife is a bull dog and after repeated calls to the State Dept. she finally got hold of the head of security at the main embassy.

    He was able to tell her over the telephone, in real time, who and what was going on around where she lived. He could see it all by satellite.

    These people in Washington knew exactly what was going on at the time it was happening. Yesterday’s testimony gave a glimpse into it.

    These clowns didn’t even need the 24 hours they say it took to understand what was going on. They are lying sacks of excrement.. Nothing more. Nothing less.

    This great man, Sean Smith, and his family deserve their honor. They gained it in a way that Obama will never understand.

    “They earned it.”

  • Sober_Thinking


    People selflessly serve their country in many ways and for many reasons. But to deliberately put themselves in a dangerous situation for the sake of this nation takes a special kind of hero.

    For this regime to treat these brave souls as “expendable” and then totally disregard the truth or the needs of the American people… There’s a special place in hell for these low-lifes. Lord help them but especially may He be with and help these families and this country.

    • p m

      And now Carney and Cutter are saying it’s their own fault for being there – yaknow, these places are dangerous.

  • 12grace

    This poor, Mom.

    obama has blood on his hands and one day he will account to the G-d of the bible for the evil he has perpetrated.

  • deeme

    I can’t believe it..I couldn’t believe it when I watched the memorial with the hearses in the background, the aren’t even in the ground and they are still blaming the movie to all the families…I was praying one family member might come forward and demand answers…I can’t even imagine what they must feel..not knowing..Leno calls this the party for the little have got to have a big S on your forehead to buy that..

  • PhillyCon

    Does anyone else thinks it kind of weird/strange that Panetta took this woman’s face in his hands? Invasion of private space by a career political hack … gross.

    My heart goes out to this woman.

    • puma_for_life

      I thought that was definitely overstepping boundaries. Was he trying to intimidate her? A gross sexist pig.

      • PhillyCon

        I was repulsed by it.

  • Laurel

    How can they lie?

    It’s easy when you have the culmination of decades of immorality. It’s easy to lie, and it’s easy to justify.

  • What kind of sociopaths can lie to a mother whose son has been murdered. BO and his administration can. Disgraceful.

  • sjmom

    Rush, they do care……………..about themselves and it seems ONLY themselves.

  • They can lie to us all because they are servants of the Father of Lies who reigns in Hell and corrupts souls and twists their minds!

  • bongobear

    I believe Obama and his whole disgusting crew is going to learn what America thinks of them on November 6th. And they aren’t going to like what we tell them…pack your crap and get the hell out of the White House.

  • I think the most disturbing thing was in her interview with Andersen Cooper, where she said the President hugged her but he was “just staring off into space, and that was no good to me. ”

    Obama just going through the gesture of sympathizing without , actually, sympathizing.
    No emotion. Like Levin said, he has ice water in his veins.
    That’s what happens when the world tells you you’re a victim your whole life.
    You don’t actually have to practice any empathy.

  • sara holy land

    My heart is with the bereaved mother !

  • This is just terrible. What type of administration does this to a mom? This woman doesn’t want money, she doesn’t want any special privileges, all she wants to know is how her son died. If we as a nation can’t at least help her with this, then we really are on a downward slide with little hope of redemption. When Romney gets elected, one of his priorities should be to get to the bottom of what happened at Benghazi and punish those who were responsible for this mess. Remember, the consulate in Benghazi was NOT attacked while there was adequate security on the ground there. It was only after the security detail was pulled that the attack was made and the people were killed. Somebody is responsible for this and the coverup and they need to be held accountable for it. If for anything else, just to provide some measure of justice to this poor lady.

  • NJK

    This breaks my heart. She probably remembers the baby she carried home from the hospital. Oh, God, what have they done? What kind of monsters do this to a mother? Monsters do this. Make it stop, please God, make it stop.

  • Orangeone

    This Lamb b!tch watched the murders first hand and there is a tape available. Betting it’s with Holder because it’s not with the FBI. It will never see the light of day.

  • NJK


  • Orangeone

    So this woman believes Allah is the supreme being and not God?

    • puma_for_life

      Her son was a public servant, regardless of the administration. You show your ignorance in this statement.

      • Orangeone

        Ever hear of resignation?  It’s not against the law.  If you feel unsafe, you resign and come home.  If you disagree with POS politics, you resign and come home.
        This woman outright said God or Allah, whoever it is.  She is not a Christian.  If she doesn’t know how her son died, I suggested she pay for an autopsy.  Her son’s remains are in the US.

  • aussieguy64

    All the empathy this Administration has provided to the mother was disingenuous. It was all a front because to these people, ALL Americans are expendable to their cause. They don’t care as long as they get the vote and fulfill their grand Utopian vision of turning the USA into some Socialist nonsense. (Despite Socialism has proven to be less than optimal for a Nation like the USA…USA got a taste of it with low employment and extremely slow growth/recovery.)

    If the truth is revealed, they would be in some serious crap. They would lose the Election. They need to buy time. That’s why they remain silent.

  • conservativemama

    Our people in Libya were calling D.C. begging for more security, and their calls were ignored. The government failed to protect its own employees.

    Now explain to me again how Obamacare is actually going to be better for us? How many calls will go unanswered while you wait for treatment for yourself or a loved one? If an ambassador is expendable, what hope do you have for the government giving a damn about any ordinary American?

  • I am not going to make this a political statement. I think that has been covered. I feel so badly for this woman. I am so glad our son decided not to enlist. He was very close. Maybe that is selfish but you see how the families are treated. There is no excuse. Those boys are over there fighting for their country. The least you could do is tell his poor mother how he died. Tell her something, hell, anything. Heartless bastards.

  • puma_for_life

    Why couldn’t she have had an autopsy done on the body once it was returned? I would if it was my son.

  • chatterbox365

    This Administration just doesn’t give a sh*t…they are in CYA mode.

    I feel bad for this mother…she has the right to know what happened and so the American people.

  • Daniel Kelly

    Man, remember when Rush was this kind to Cindy Sheehan?

    Not that I like her at all, but lying to mothers of children in service to the nation is not a new thing.
