Charles Woods, the father of Tyrone Woods, a former Navy SEAL killed in the Libya terror attack last month, sent a direct message to President Barack Obama about courage and cowardice.
On the “Geraldo at Large” show on Fox News,
Woods said: “Remember this Mr. President, my son and the others died heroes. And it’s better to die the death of a hero than it is to live the life of a coward.
Woods said on Friday that U.S. officials who denied a request for help while the diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya was under attack "are murderers of my son.”

Woods’ son was part of a small team at a CIA annex near the consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. Stevens, Woods and two other Americans died in the attack.
Fox News reported last week that a request from the CIA annex for backup was denied by U.S. officials during the Sept. 11 assault.
"They refused to pull the trigger," Woods said.
"Those people who made the decision and who knew about the decision and lied about it are murderers of my son."
Tyrone Woods and others at the CIA annex ignored orders by their superiors to stand down and instead went to the consulate, Fox News reported.
"I wish that the leadership in the White House had the same level of moral courage and heroism that my son displayed," Charles Woods said.
