One of the heroic military contractors who helped saved many lives during the 2012 Benghazi attacks said on Tuesday the House Benghazi report revealed that politics clearly overrode good decision making during the crisis.

Benghazi hero Mark “Oz” Geist, a Marine Corp veteran, reacted in disbelief to this revelation, telling Fox News’ Megyn Kelly: “I mean, [Benghazi survivor Kris] ‘Tanto’ [Paronto] didn’t care if he was in shorts and blue jeans, and I don’t think the Libyans cared either.

And it’s just beyond me that somebody would be worried about that when we have Americans in peril.”
