[If fallen Benghazi SEAL’s father Charles Woods] had been Cindy Sheehan, whose soldier son was killed in Iraq, his publicly confronting the president would be considered a patriotic act.
As it was when she became the media’s — and Democratic Party’s — darling for her public rants against then-President George W. Bush.

She was a sad, unstable, clearly tortured woman, but she was a handy cudgel and the media exploited her shamelessly.
Charles Woods, on the other hand, has been all but ignored. Consider:
•On “Meet the Press,” GOP panelist Carly Fiorina brought up Benghazi, only to be cut off by moderator David Gregory, who promised to “get to that a little later.” He never did.
•Newt Gingrich raised Benghazi on “This Week.” Moderator George Stephanopoulos changed the subject.
•On CNN’s “State of the Union” (with presidential debate “moderator” Candy Crowley), two GOP officials tried to raise Benghazi — but Crowley sloughed the issue off.
