Benghazi Mom Kept Out of Ceremony Honoring Her Son, Told She’s “Not Immediate Family”

The mother of Sean Smith, one of the Americans known to have been murdered in Benghazi by adherents to the Religion of Peace, was not invited to a ceremony to recognize him posthumously, allegedly because she was not “immediate family.” There are many definitions of “immediate family,” but all of which I am aware include parents. For example, this: “A person’s smallest family unit, consisting of the closest relatives, such as parents, siblings and children.” Have we reverted to the Clintonesque culture of convenience where all depends on what words such as “sex” and “is” mean? Worse? When did we do so?

Did Mrs. Smith cease to be a member of her deceased son’s immediate family when she questioned the Obama Administration’s conduct during, and assertions following, the Benghazi Kerfuffle?

In our cowardly Obama’s brave new world, do words have different meanings when applied to those who indiscriminately sing praises unto and otherwise support their Lord and Savior, Obama, than when applied to heretics who don’t? Apparently they do. There seem to be more and more conveniently flexible words and phrases in the Obama Family dictionary. As the ObamaScandals unravel, we hear more of them daily.
