Benghazi Vet Says Special Operators Will 'Leave Military' if Hillary Elected

One look at the stark contrast in speaker lineups at the Republican and Democratic National Conventions tells you all you need to know. 

As Democrats are poised to trot out the mothers of young black men alleging to be victims of police brutality, Republicans have given a platform to law enforcement officers, members of the military, and victims of crime at the hand of illegal immigrants and acts of terrorism.

It's clear whose side the military is on -- or better put, which Party is on the military's side -- and that sentiment was echoed fervently on Tuesday by John "Tig" Tiegen, who served as part of the CIA security team in Benghazi.    

During an interview with The Daily Caller, the former Marine Sergeant said that special operators will leave the military if Hillary Clinton is elected: 

Tiegen witnessed firsthand the results of Clinton’s policy when he and his comrades in the Benghazi CIA Global Response Service Team defended U.S. consulate and CIA officials from a massive assault by radical Libyan jihadis Sept. 11, 2013. He told The Daily Caller News Foundation Clinton’s failure as secretary of state during the Benghazi attack has caused many of the nation’s most elite special operations forces to quit their jobs — a problem that will only get worse if Clinton is elected.

“There’s guys leaving now just because of that,” Tiegen told TheDCNF in an exclusive Facebook Live video interview Tuesday. “Cause they don’t know if the call for help is going to be heard.”

During his interview, which can be viewed via the Daily Caller link featured above, the Benghazi hero said the Obama administration has instilled doubt among members of the military. 

The most striking remark made by Tiegen was how special operators and members of the military "don't know if the call for help is going to be heard."

The Trump campaign should continue posing the following question to potential voters: "If you're in the throes of a terrorist attack at 3:00 a.m., who would you call for help -- Trump or Clinton?"
