Interview: Benghazi Hero Kris Paronto
Unless you've been living under a rock, everyone knows about the harrowing events in Benghazi, Libya, the night of September 11, 2012 when Islamic terrorists attacked the U.S. Consulate, killing Ambassador Chris Stevens and his communications director, Sean Smith.
In their pleas for help, it became very clear that the compound was being ignored by our government officials in the Obama Administration, including then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In a repulsive and inexcusable deraliction of duty, which erupted in 13 hours of pure hell for the men who fought valiantly to save 20 lives while fighting off the terrorists, our government seemed more interested in their own agendas than protecting and assisting the men and women on the front line of this attack.
The role of the Secretary of State and the President of the United States is to serve,
protect, and defend the Constitution and that includes its people. None of which happened the night of September 11, 2012 when Kris "Tanto" Paronto and his fellow contractors, John "Tig" Tiegen, Mark "Oz" Geist, Tyrone Woods, Jack Silva, and Dave Benton refused to stand down after calls from the consulate begged for their assistance in defending the attack.
In an exclusive interview with Kris Paronto, we learn what inspired these men to sacrifice everything to save fellow Americans, how he has coped with post-traumatic stress, and how his faith has helped him through the personal challenges following Benghazi and serving as a former Army ranger.
