While John Brennan may have rallied several high-powered defenders to his cause after President Trump revoked his security clearance, many heralded special ops heroes have fired back – saying the former CIA Director got what was coming to him. (Fox News)

 Kris “Tanto” Paronto, a former Army Ranger and private security contractor who was part of the CIA team that fought back during the 2012 Benghazi terror attack, accused Brennan of putting his “politics” before those in the field. 

“He is lucky the security clearance is all he is getting away with,” Paronto told Fox News in an interview on Friday. 

Responding a day earlier to Brennan’s tweet that his “principles are worth far more than clearances,” Paronto also tweeted: 

“My principles are greater than clearances too John, especially when you and the @CIA kool-aid drinkers punishes us for not going along with the Benghazi cover-up story in order to protect you, @HillaryClinton’s & @BarackObama’s failures. You put your politics before us.” 

Paronto helped write the book, “13 Hours” chronicling the attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya. He and his team – who tried in vain to save Ambassador Stevens and his defenders – subsequently lost their security clearances.
