I had a wonderful lunch with an American hero last Thursday.  Now G. Edmond “Ned” Massie, IV, would disclaim that title.  In fact, he’d say that the real heroes were the men who died fighting in vain to protect the embassy in Benghazi from terrorist attack:  Tyrone Wood and Glen Doherty.  Left behind to die in the attack.  Killed along with Doherty and Smith were Ambassador Christopher Stevens and his bodyguard Sean Smith.  (I got all this info from Massie’s website:

Ned Massie is an unlikely agitator.  He’s a successful land broker and businessman, a partner at Grant Massie ( and a strong follower of Jesus Christ.  He believes that if you know of sin, you must act on it of you share in that sin.  And Ned Massie believes (I wish I could believe this did not happen but I am afraid something terrible did happen!) that on September 11, 2012, there was a terrorist attack on the US embassy in Benghazi and the four who died were left there – abandoned – while high officials in DC watched. And that is a sin that Ned Massie will not share in.  (I also feel the American people knew about this and re-elected the President anyway.  I cried out on election night in such as way as to spook the kids.) Try this from Ned Massie’s blog:

Does it bother you that for over five hours, Wood and Doherty fought an overwhelming force calling for aid that never cameabandoned by Obama, Biden, Clinton, and Panetta?

Does it bother you that Obama and Company “spun” a tale as to what happened in Benghazi to disguise their starring role in this nefarious deed?  How about the two military officers whose careers were ended?  What about the poor man in California who made an obscure video no one has watched but who is now in prison?  What about Obama apologizing for our freedom of speech at the UN?

So what is Massie doing?  He came up with a  way to do it:  bumper stickers.  Massie has four different bumper stickers.  He’ll send them to you for free. One stipulation:  You have to make five more bumper stickers and give them out.  Ned figures that if it happens enough, it’ll be on 90 million bumpers and the nation cannot ignore 90,000,000 bumper stickers.  Here’s the place to order the bumper stickers.  Any sign company can reproduce the bumper stickers and although the designs are copyrighted, they are copyrighted to prevent misuse.

Ned started out with this because he felt he had to so something.  He had heard Senator Mark Warner admit that there were drones over Benghazi on the night of the attack.  Warner would not say if they were armed but it seems to Massie and I they had to be armed.  (Fox News and National Review says no but they confirm the Warner account.)  So Ned woke up one morning and came up with the bumper sticker idea.  There if goes from there.

So, if you want to do something about Benghazi, get the bumper stickers and spread the word!
