Hillary Clinton’s inaction resulted in the death of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya.
And Hillary is now trying to shame those critical of her failure on that fateful day.
But the mother of one of those who died isn’t having any of it, and destroyed Hillary with just one statement.
During her first TV interview since the election, Hillary Clinton stated that the Benghazi scandal was nothing more than “political football”, stating:
“But boy, it [Benghazi] was turned into a political football. And it was aimed at undermining my credibility, my record, my accomplishments.”
The mother of U.S. Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith, who was killed in Benghazi, took offense to her statement.
Speaking with Fox News, Pat Smith railed at Hillary Clinton, stating:
“I don’t see how it was political in any way—it was Hillary’s baby from day one. She ordered all that stuff, and then she went to bed when [the attack] was going on,”
As reported by Fox News:
“The mother of one of the victims of the 2012 Benghazi terror attack slammed Hillary Clinton on Wednesday for calling the criticism she faced in connection with the tragedy “political.”
“I don’t see how it was political in any way—it was Hillary’s baby from day one. She ordered all that stuff, and then she went to bed when [the attack] was going on,” said Pat Smith, the mother of U.S. Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith, who was killed along with Ambassador Christopher Stevens and Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.
She spoke to Fox News after Clinton discussed Benghazi during her first live interview since the election, part of the promotion of her newly released campaign memoir “What Happened.” Clinton brought up the controversy over the Benghazi terror attack in response to a question about her likability.
“Take the Benghazi tragedy—you know, I have one of the top Republicans Kevin McCarthy, admitting we’re going to take that tragedy—because, you know, we’ve lost people, unfortunately going back to the Reagan administration, if you talk about recent times, in diplomatic attacks,” Clinton told Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie on NBC’s “Today.” “But boy, it was turned into a political football. And it was aimed at undermining my credibility, my record, my accomplishments.””
Smith, who has become known as a critic of Clinton, didn’t just stop there.
She stated that Hillary Clinton still has not called her, even after promising to do so after her son’s death.
The State Department and Hillary Clinton also ignored her requests for information on what happened on the day of her son’s death.
But she isn’t the only family member of Sean Smith who has criticized Clinton.
Sean Smith’s uncle, Michael Ingmire, told Fox News:
“She has been in plausible deniability about Benghazi ever since it happened,”
“She was standing, basically before the coffins of Americans, blaming a horrible anti-Islamic video, but she’s just being consistent with her psychosis. The liar, the criminal, the crooked politician—those are the three faces of Hillary.”
But it seems that Hillary doesn’t care much about what the family has to say.
Even after hearing directly from angry family members of the deceased in Benghazi, Hillary continues to find ways to insult them.
Do you think that Hillary Clinton should apologize to the family of the deceased?
