Facebook removed an anti-Obama message posted on the page of Special Operations Speaks PAC (SOS), which claims President Obama denied a request for military support in Benghazi, Libya when the U.S. embassy was attacked and two ex-SEALs Glenn Doherty and Tyrone Woods were killed in a mortar strike.
The controversial posting featured a picture of Obama next to former al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden with the text: “Obama called the SEALs and THEY got bin Laden. When the SEALs called Obama, THEY GOT DENIED.”
However, there has been no proof that President Obama personally denied any military help to the U.S. embassy when it was under attack.
Last Friday, Fox News reported that requests from CIA officers for air support on the evening of the attacks were rejected, but that has yet to be confirmed.
The Facebook page says that SOS is an anti-Obama group consisting of “veterans, legatees, and supporters of the Special Operations communities of all the Armed Forces.”
Larry Ward, the administrator of the SOS Facebook page, said he received a message from Facebook hat he had violated Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.
Ward told Breitbart News: “So I copied the warning, put it on the meme as a caption, and re-posted the meme to our Facebook page."
The image was removed again and the SOS account was frozen for 24 hours.
