In an appearance on Fox News Sunday, Hillary Clinton sidestepped questions over the grieving families of victims of the Benghazi attack by once again intimating that they were not being truthful in their comments.
While the corporate media obsessed over Donald Trump’s response to fallen soldier from a Muslim immigrant family, Clinton’s response to Pat Smith over the death of her son in Libya was glossed over.
“I don’t hold any ill feeling for someone who in that moment may not fully recall everything that was or wasn’t said,” Clinton said in response to Smith’s declaration at the RNC “I blame Hillary Clinton. I blame Hillary Clinton personally for the death of my son. That’s personally.”
In other words, Hillary is still intimating that Pat Smith is lying to the media about what Clinton said to the families in the aftermath of the September 2012 attack.
Hillary is suggesting, once again, that families of the Benghazi victims didn’t hear her properly when she told them the cause of the attack was an anti-Muslim YouTube video, and that it was not a co-ordinated pre-planned terror attack.
Fox host Chris Wallace even played a video clip of Clinton at Andrews Air Force Base three days after the attack, proving that she was publicly blaming the attack on the YouTube video.
“We’ve seen the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing to do with,” Clinton said on September 14th 2012.
Hillary, clearly annoyed at the clip, suggested it was “unfair,” claiming she also quoted other people who said the attack was terrorism. She again suggested that there was “confusion in the minds” of those who accuse her of lying, and that she had “already said it was terrorism,” and “there was no doubt it was terrorism.”
It is well documented that Clinton did not even mention terrorism until September 20, a full six days after she met with the grieving families. Private emails revealed that in the interim Hillary knew it was a terrorist attack but still kept pushing the notion that the attack was an impromptu uprising that turned violent.
Elsewhere during the interview, Hillary denied that FBI director James Comey criticized her use of a private email server while she was Secretary of State and said that her denials that she exchanged classified material were untrue.
“That’s not what I heard Director Comey say, and I thank you for giving me the opportunity to, in my view, clarify.” Hillary told Wallace.
Wallace then played a clip of Comey saying the very things Hillary said she didn’t hear, blatantly exposing her as a liar.
Clinton then gave a generic response about making mistakes and at the time having no reason to believe she was doing anything wrong.
Clinton also suggested that she can understand why a majority of Americans have a problem with her trustworthiness.
