Patton Oswalt has come after Charlie Daniels over Benghazi

Boy, let me tell you what.

Patton Oswalt, an actor who voiced the character of Remy the Rat in the cartoon movie "Ratatouille," is coming after legendary country icon Charlie Daniels, known for the second-best song ever about Georgia, on Twitter.

"Benghazi ain't going away!" Daniels posted, presumably a reference to the 2012 attack in Libya, when Islamic militants besieged an American diplomatic compound, murdering U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and information officer Sean SmithTyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty, who were working as CIA contractors, were killed in a separate attack at a nearby facility.

Oswalt, who also appeared on the series "King of Queens" and had a role in Atlanta-filmed "Keeping Up With the Joneses," couldn't resist a clever comeback (below).
