That is why on Dec. 30, I remember our brave Khost Base patriots who gave their lives in service to a grateful nation, "far from home," as then-CIA Director Leon Panetta said, "doing the hard work that must be done to protect our country from terrorism."
"The law says that no one should receive any kind of benefit. Any candidate who receives a benefit from any foreign country is violating the laws of our country. That's clear. It's a violation of law. And for the president of the United States to say he would be willing to take that information and not have to call the FBI, I think represents a violation of the oath of office that this president took," said Mr. Panetta.
