(CNSNews.com) – Charles Woods, the father of former Navy Seal Tyrone Woods who was killed in the terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, said when his son’s body came home, Vice President Joe Biden asked him, “Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?”
“He said, ‘I am Joe Biden,’” Woods said. “And then he said, ‘I received one of these damned phone calls,’ when he had lost a family member. And then about a half hour later he actually came over and approached me, and these are the exact words: he said—I do not speak like this – in an extremely loud and boisterous voice, he said, ‘Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?’
“Are these the words of someone who’s really sorry?” Woods asked during an appearance on “The Glenn Beck Program” on Thursday, recounting the events of the Sept. 14 ceremony for the slain Americans, including Woods, U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, and the two other Americans who were killed in the attack on the 11th anniversary of 9/11.
Woods described his interaction with President Obama who, “couldn’t look him in the eye” at the ceremony. “The Vice President was also there. And he came by, he introduced himself—this was before the president came by—he came over to our little pod of people.”
After recounting the vice president’s words, referring to Woods’ son having “balls the size of cue balls,” Woods said, “I will ask you the question – Is that the voice of someone who is truly sorry?”
Fox News has reported that Tyrone Woods and former Navy Seal Glen Dougherty were killed by mortar fire at approximately 4 a.m.—seven hours into the attack—and after three requests for military support were denied.
