"And Barack Obama is an Honorable Man!"*

Noble words, Mr. President! I've heard you utter them before...mostly trying to justify the passage of whatever ineffectual gun control legislation you're pushing. Do you really believe it, Mr. President? Did you believe it last September 11th. when you first got the word that our consulate in Benghazi was under attack?

"If there's even one thing we can do..." What exactly did you do, Mr. President?

"...if there's just one life we can save..." Was that your calculation on 9/11, Mr. President? "... pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe"?? Exactly which orders did you give that day as Commander-in-Chief?

"...we've got an obligation to try." Bingo! Now you know why so many people want to know what you did upon hearing that our consulate was under attack. Why they are insistent that you tell us. Most Americans know that we had an obligation to try. Not an option, an obligation. And nowhere does that obligation fall any heavier than on the Commander-in-chief.

So, do you really believe the words you spoke, the words you tweeted, Mr. President, or are they words...just words? Confession is good for the soul, Mr. Obama. Tell us what you did or didn't do that fateful day, September 11, 2012. It won't bring back the men who died, but their families and the American family deserve to know the truth of just exactly what you did to honor your obligation and American's obligation to those men.

If you could have saved just one life, you had an obligation to try. Hard to put it much plainer than that, sir. Now do the honorable thing, and not the political thing, for a change, for after all, you are an honorable man, right?
