Today’s shocking Libya report has gone viral. The hashtag #StandDown trending on Twitter and tens of thousands of Blaze readers are responding to and sharing the story on Facebook. This morning, radio host Glenn Beck reacted to the new allegations — that numerous requests for assistance were denied during the September 11 attack in Benghazi and that the now-deceased former Navy SEALS were ordered to “stand down.”
Aside from showing his personal horror after learning the new details, he repeatedly asked, “What have we turned into?” and proclaimed: “Today officially is the day that I no longer recognize my country.”
During the segment, the popular radio host also took the time to praise the bravery of Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, the ex-Navy Seals who perished in the attack, noting that they selflessly gave their lives. Beck described the men as “hero Americans” who did “the opposite of what the White House did.”
“Tyrone is a guy who was over in Benghazi. He was not charged to protect the ambassador. He was not charged to protect the CIA safe house. He was over there not doing any of that,” Beck said. “He happened to be in the area and he heard the cries for help. He didn’t call a superior. He didn’t call anybody. He got into his car and he drove to the CIA safe house.”
While visibly moved by the bravery and disturbed over the allegations that Americans were left to fend for themselves in Benghazi, Beck noted that the entire incident is “a game-changer.”
