Another sick parallel: Administration's treatment of Benghazi victims' families and Brian Terry family

This is a very powerful video from Pat Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, one of the four Americans killed in the Benghazi attack. Notice what she says because it's very similar to what the mother of slain Border Patrol agent Brian Terry has been saying for nearly two years now - she wants answers. At the 1:00 mark, Smith says she was told her son died of smoke inhalation and subsequently raises a very legitimate question about the photos of bloody handprints on the outside of the consulate. She then says what she's being told generally is filled with "outright lies".

Another very powerful moment comes just before the 2:00 mark, when she says Leon Panetta held her face with both hands, looked her in the eye and said, "Trust me. I will tell out what happened and so far, he's told me nothing, nothing at all."

She then mocks all members of the administration who told her to trust them before saying, "I don't trust you anymore." This is a must-see video.

Via Weekly Standard:

Josephine Terry, the mother of Brian Terry, testified before the House Oversight Committee on June 15, 2011, six months after the murder of her son. Though I can't find the video, here is audio of a portion of her exchange with Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID). Notice how Josephine's frustration with those who should have provided her with answers was very similar to the frustration of Pat Smith.

Now, to parallel what Pat Smith experienced - with Leon Panetta holding both sides of her face, looking her into the eyes, and telling her to trust him - to what Josephine Terry heard come out of the mouth of the Oversight Committee's ranking member, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD)...

Here is audio of Cummings at that same June 15, 2011 hearing.

Listen only if you can stand it.

In reality, Cummings defended Eric Holder to the bitter end. He stonewalled the committee's efforts to seek accountability and justice for the Terry family. In fact, more than one year after he lied to the Terry family, the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to which Cummings belongs, walked out of the Eric Holder contempt hearing.

Bald. Faced. Liar.

Go figure, he's a registered member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) caucus (communists). And you know what communists do?

They lie.
