In light of all the recent revelations about Crooked Hillary, it’s easy to forget some of her greatest hits.
While secretary of state, she abused her position to get rich, getting foreign nations to funnel cash into her Foundation, through the promise of favors. And favors did she hand out, like lucrative arms deals to Saudi Arabia, who used those weapons against their own people.
And then there are her actions in the Middle East. We can all agree her and Obama’s foolish tactics in Iraq, Syria, and Libya are directly responsible for the instability and warfare going on right now. Their lack of leadership and judgment has led to the loss of countless lives and an unprecedented migrant crisis.
But perhaps worst of all was the attack on Benghazi, when on September 11, 2012 four American lives were lost in a strategic effort against our embassy.
Even though Hillary knew what was going on, and could have sent ample resources to intervene, she prevented troops from going in and rescuing our people.
Gov. Mike Pence drilled down on a newly released Wikileaks email, pointing out that a political consultant to Hillary Clinton discouraged tribute to the “four guys” that died in Benghazi and declaring to the crowd, “Those weren’t four guys. Those were four American heroes!”
Pence reminded the crowd that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told parents of the four fallen Americans that a filmmaker in the United States was responsible for the deaths, despite having emailed her daughter Chelsea the night of the attack and called it an Al Qaeda-style terrorist attack…
He continued, “Let me tell you something, I’m a father of a United States Marine. Anybody who said that, anybody who did that, should be disqualified from ever serving as Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces.”
“It was Hillary Clinton who left Americans in harm’s way in Benghazi,” Pence remarked to the New Hampshire crowd earlier in his address.
It’s clear that the fighting in Libya was a direct result of Clinton’s efforts to overthrow the former Libyan leadership. That led to rampant instability and infighting. The attack on the American embassy wouldn’t have happened, had Clinton not interfered in that country.
Yet when it came time to do the right thing and intervene, she told several groups, close enough to fly in and save our people, to stand down. Apparently she’s okay with destabilizing a nation, but not okay with protecting our own people.
We can only speculate why Hillary made such terrible decisions. But there’s one thing we can do to make sure she never makes them again: election Donald Trump president.
