Last night I finally had the chance to listen to Michael Bane’s podcast and his take on the Consulate attack in Libya. I haven’t written about it because it gets me so mad, I’d just write an unending string of cusses and imprecations.
Michael Bane quoted from William Barret Travis and I thought it a very thoughtful epitaph for Glenn Doherty and Tyrone Woods.
“I shall never surrender or retreat.
Then, I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism,
& every thing dear to the American character,
to come to our aid, with all dispatch —
… If this call is neglected, I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible & die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor & that of his country.”
