Twitter punishes Benghazi hero over Obama slams

Hillary and Obama JulyTwitter punished a Benghazi attack survivor who used the social media platform to go after Barack Obama for mocking "conspiracy theories."

In a nakedly political speech that took swipes at President Trump and Republicans, Obama suggested they are detached from reality when they "embraced wild conspiracy theories, like those surrounding Benghazi."

That comment set off Kris Paronto, a former U.S. Army ranger who was a security contractor at the CIA property. He used his own Twitter account to recall the frantic rooftop defense against mortar rounds and small arms fire that claimed the life of two U.S. personnel.

Paranto, who is credited with saving lives during the hasty defense, challenged Obama to fight in similar circumstances and ended with the word "scum."

Political commentator Kevin McCullough tells OneNewsNow that Paronto has a right to be upset.

"You're talking about a guy that doesn't believe it's some sort of fiction," he says. "What you're talking about is a man who lost several of his unit mates, and the former president had the audacity to say what he said."

The Daily Wire reports that Paronto, after calling out Obama, traded barbs with a far-left organization over who deserves credit for killing Obama bin Laden. His account was eventually restored after he deleted the tweet.

McCullough says that Paronto was banned because he challenged Obama.

"He has the right to challenge the president to say, Hey, if you don't think that my reaction to this is appropriate, then stand a post and go through what I went through."
