Benghazi Victim’s Mom Demands Hillary Clinton Tell Truth, Then States Several Lies
Pat Smith, the mother of Benghazi victim Sean Smith, told Fox News host Greta Van Susteren that she was not happy that a Benghazi attack suspect Ahmed Abu Khatallah was recently caught by the Obama administration (without a single shot fired).
According to CNN:
Abu Khatallah has been charged with killing a person in the course of an attack on a federal facility with a firearm and dangerous weapon, and of attempting and conspiring to provide material support to terrorists resulting in death.
The charges, filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, also accuse him of discharging, brandishing, using, carrying and possessing a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence.
“I’m not so sure he was even involved in anything,” claimed Smith on Fox News.
Smith also demanded that Hillary Clinton, “Tell me the truth, tell me what happened.”
Smith said that Clinton did not grant the increased security requested in Benghazi and so “she’s blaming everybody else” now.
In reality, it’s been reported numerous times that Charlene Lamb, the deputy assistant secretary for international programs, was the one in the U.S. State Department who denied extra security to the Benghazi compound.
Smith told Van Susteren that she heard Clinton say that she saw a live feed of what was happening during the Benghazi attack, which even Van Susteren said was not true.
Smith then said, “At a different time, she did say the other.”
But in reality Clinton has never said that she watched the Benghazi attack in “real time.”
CBS News reported that it was actually Charlene Lamb who heard an audio feed of the attack in real time:
The audio feed of the attack was being monitored in real time in Washington by diplomatic security official Charlene Lamb. CBS News has learned that video of the assault was recovered 20 days later from the more than 10 security cameras at the compound.
The government security camera footage of the attack was in the possession of local Libyans until the week of Oct. 1. The video will be among the evidence that the State Department’s review board will analyze to determine who carried out the assault.
