For several days, the media has been gushing about Khizr Kahn’s
emotional speech — and his forceful denunciation of GOP nominee Donald
Trump — at the Democratic national convention in Philadelphia. Kahn’s
son, 27-year-old Army captain Humayun Khan, was killed by a suicide bomber in Iraq in 2004.
One cannot help but notice, however, the difference between the media’s reaction
to Mr. Khan’s speech at the DNC and the speech that Patricia Smith,
whose son was killed in the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, gave at
the Republican convention one week earlier. Fighting back tears, Smith
accused Hillary Clinton of lying to her face about the circumstances of her son’s death.
