  • Lawsuit by Benghazi families targeting Hillary Clinton dismissed by Obama-appointed federal judge

    A federal judge on Friday dismissed a lawsuit brought against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by relatives of two Americans killed during the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya. Mrs. Clinton neither enabled the Benghazi attack by using her now-infamous private email server nor defamed its victims’ parents afterwards, U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ruled Friday in Washington, D.C., casting aside claims raised on behalf of parents of slain State Department information officer Sean Smith and late CIA operative Tyrone Woods. The Smith and Woods families sued Mrs. Clinton last August in D.C. federal court alleging she caused...

    The mother of a Benghazi victim who blames Hillary Clinton for her son’s death will attend the third presidential debate on Wednesday — as a VIP guest of Donald Trump. Pat Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, a State Department IT consultant killed during the terrorist attack in Libya on Sept. 11, 2012, told Yahoo News she would accept the mogul’s invitation to the final showdown between the candidates in Las Vegas. “I want to look in Hillary’s eyes, and have her lie to me again,” Smith told Yahoo News. In Smith’s speech to the Republican National Convention in July...

    Glossing over the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi that claimed the lives of four U.S. diplomats, Hillary Clinton on Wednesday night claimed that “we did not lose a single American” due to military intervention in Libya. Speaking at a veterans’ forum hosted by NBC News, the former secretary of state said she stands by the 2011 decision to take action in Libya and that America suffered no casualties.

    Looking ahead to the next installment of e-mails from WikiLeaks As U.S. armed forces attack ISIS in Libya, WikiLeaks is poised to remind us that ISIS is in Libya — indeed, that ISIS is ISIS — thanks to disastrous policies championed by Hillary Clinton as President Obama’s secretary of state. Also raised, yet again, is the specter of Mrs. Clinton’s lying to Congress and the American people — this time regarding a matter some of us have been trying for years to get answers about: What mission was so important the United States kept personnel in the jihadist hellhole of...
  • Hillary Criticizes Benghazi Hero’s Mom: She ‘May Not Fully Recall Everything’ [Video]

    Daily Caller ^ | 8/1/16 | Steve Guest
    Hillary Clinton criticized Patricia Smith, the mother of Benghazi hero, Sean Smith arguing that she “may not fully recall everything that was or wasn’t said.” In an interview on on “Fox News Sunday,” a clip of Smith’s speech at the Republican National Convention was played where she said that Clinton “looked me squarely in the eye and told me a video was responsible” for the attack in Benghazi. Clinton replied, “I don’t hold any ill feeling for someone who in that moment may not fully recall everything that was or wasn’t said.” Smith has been an advocate for her son...

Stevens’ Death, ‘I Don’t Care’ What Victim’s Mother Felt During MSNBC’s coverage of the Republican National Convention, host Chris Matthews reacted to a speech given by Susan Smith, who’s son Sean was killed in the Benghazi terror attacks, “I don’t care what that woman up there, the mother has felt, her emotions are her own, but for the country, in choosing a leader, it’s wrong to have someone get up there and tell a lie about Hillary Clinton.”

"For all of this loss, for all of this grief, for all of the cynicism, the tragedy in Benghazi has wrought upon America, I blame Hillary Clinton," Smith declared from the convention stage in Cleveland on Monday night. "I blame...

    Have you no shame, Hillary Clinton? In a stunning display of callous indifference to the casualties of her incompetent foreign policy as Secretary of State, the woman who claimed to have dodged sniper fire in Bosnia, in Wednesday’s CNN debate in effect called Patricia Smith, mother of Benghazi casualty Sean Smith, a liar. As Breitbart News reported the exchange: RAMOS:  Secretary Clinton, on the night of the attacks in Benghazi, you sent an e-mail to your daughter Chelsea saying that al qaeda was responsible for the killing of the Americans, however some of the families claim you lied to...

    Patricia Smith and Charles Woods, parents of two of the Benghazi dead, Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods, would disagree with the notion that history is a lie agreed upon. They do not agree with and do not consent to Hillary Clinton’s attempted rewriting of history and the attempted hiding of what is arguably her criminal negligence in what she calls the “fog of war.”

    President Barack Obama on Friday honored the four Americans killed in an attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya, recalling their lives in deeply personal terms and declaring the United States will never pull back on its principles or 'retreat from the world.' The coffins of the four men were brought back to the United States on a military transport plane this afternoon and carried by serving officers to waiting hearses parked under a giant hanging Stars and Stripes. 'Their sacrifice will never be forgotten. We will bring to justice those who took them from us,' said President Barack Obama...

    In a very emotional interview with Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC this afternoon, Patricia Smith, mother of Sean Smith, one of the four killed in the Benghazi consulate attack in September 2012, explained how last week's Congressional hearing did not give her closure or satisfy her in anyway. Smith said she didn't learn anything new from the hearing and expressed her outrage at Hillary Clinton for not giving an explanation as to why her son was "sacrificed." "You can't understand," she told Mitchell about losing an only child. "My only child was murdered and no one has told me why."

    In a monumental display of self-serving chutzpah, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she was there to testify before the Benghazi Select Committee to honor the service and memory of the four men killed in the terrorist attack. Then why, Madam Secretary, did you tell the parents of the dead as you and they stood in front of their sons’ caskets that you were going to get the maker of the video you blamed for their deaths?

    Scandal: Documents from Judicial Watch show that Hillary Clinton's closest advisers knew from the onset, before she launched an inflammatory video lie, that Benghazi was a terrorist attack for which Ansar al-Sharia claimed responsibility. 'Mrs. Clinton, name an accomplishment," Carly Fiorina, former Hewlett-Packard CEO and prospective 2016 GOP presidential candidate, asked Thursday at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference. Last year, when ABC's Diane Sawyer asked the former secretary of state that question, Mrs. Clinton changed the subject, not even bothering to mention dodging sniper fire in Bosnia. Nor is she likely to mention Benghazi, a place now synonymous with...

    Scandal: Democrats claim it's been asked and answered, but the question of why four Americans had to die in a diplomatic outpost in a terrorist haven with inadequate security and no plans for rescue has not. That all questions regarding Benghazi have not been answered and new ones have in fact arisen was shown by the recent revelation by former Deputy Assistant Secretary Raymond Maxwell to reporter Sharyl Attkisson. Maxwell said he witnessed State Department personnel sifting through stacks of documents and emails to filter out those that would put the department in a bad light before turning any over...

    Benghazi Scandal: Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton promised "unfettered access" to the Benghazi Accountability Review Board. But it turns out that promise may be as much a lie as the inflammatory video story. We were not impressed by the methods or findings of the Accountability Review Board (ARB) after the terrorist attack on our Benghazi diplomatic mission on Sept. 11, 2012, starting with not interviewing the person where the buck was supposed to stop, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Shamefully, the ARB report failed to single out any individuals for violating procedures and did not recommend any disciplinary...

    The worst part of President Obama’s speech last night was the appalling failure to mention the Benghazi massacre. Today, we mark the second anniversary of that act of war by the enemy we have been at war with for 13 years, an act of war in which the enemy attacked sovereign American territory and murdered the representative of our country in Libya as well as three other brave Americans. Mr. Obama decided our fallen Benghazi heroes did not merit even a fleeting mention. Let’s focus on two things he did say. The first tells us he was not unaware that...

    Scandal: Despite the administration's claim, the CIA operatives who fought for their lives and others' from a rooftop say that a stand-down order may have cost four Americans their lives while their ignoring it saved others. Kris Paronto, Mark Geist and John Tiegen, three CIA contractors who on the night of Sept. 11, 2012, battled with terrorists from the roof of the CIA's Benghazi annex building, would beg to differ with the Obama administration, the CIA and several congressional committees. They say there was an order to stand down that delayed their response and possibly cost the lives of Ambassador...

    A still-classified State Department e-mail says that one of the first responses from the White House to the Benghazi attack was to contact YouTube to warn of the “ramifications” of allowing the posting of an anti-Islamic video, according to Rep. Darrell Issa, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The memo suggests that even as the attack was still underway — and before the CIA began the process of compiling talking points on its analysis of what happened — the White House believed it was in retaliation for a controversial video. The subject line of the...
