More news has been coming out about the September 11, 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya.
The attack left four Americans, including our ambassador, dead.
We now know that both President Obama and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had prior knowledge of what was going on and could have prevented it. But they did nothing.
Recently, Patricia Smith, who lost her son Sean during the attacks, has opened up about the tragedy.
She appeared on “Varney & Co.” to discuss the fallout after the attacks and the inappropriate way Clinton handled it.
Smith said, “My feeling is that she went on TV afterwards, telling everybody that I was the liar, that there’s someone here that is lying, and it wasn’t her, and that I was liar. I want her to apologize to me for calling me a liar on TV, because this is clearly not true. And I want to know why my son was left to die breathing in diesel smoke, which is the most horrible way to die, and she didn’t do anything to stop it. She could have.”
Smith added that Hillary “ought to be in — she ought to be wearing stripes. I want to see this woman in stripes, because she lied, and the different things that she did say, were very, totally wrong. My son is dead because of her. I would like to talk to her, even though I know I would be the bad one in that.”
No matter who was in the wrong, to attack a grieving mother openly is a brutish thing to do. The tragedy of Benghazi is on the heads of every leader who could have prevented it, especially Hillary Clinton.
Should Clinton be “wearing stripes”? That all remains to be seen.
The official report on the attacks will soon be released and we will all know for sure who’s to blame.
