Benghazi Victim’s Mother: ‘Special Place In Hell’ For People Like Hillary, “I Hope She Enjoys It There’

Patricia Smith, whose son Sean was killed in the 2012 terrorist attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya, responded to Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s statement about her being “absolutely wrong” by saying there’s “a special place in hell” for people like Clinton “and I hope she enjoys it there” on Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Intelligence Report with Trish Regan.”

Smith said, “She lied to me. She told me it was a fault of the video. … And she knew full well it wasn’t at that time. And then she says, she was going to check, and if it’s any different, she would call me back. She would let me know. She has never once spoken to me, or her office. The only thing I ever got out of them is that I am not a member of the immediate family, and I don’t need to know.”

She later added, “I want Hillary to talk to me personally, and tell me why there was no security there, when they were asked for it. I know this, because I spoke to my son. That day, he says he was really scared, because he saw the 17 people — 17 November, whatever it was, that they were walking around taking pictures. And he was afraid. He says it didn’t look very good. And he was afraid. And that he asked for security, and he was turned down.”

When asked about criticisms that the matter had been politicized, Smith stated,”All I want is for Hillary to tell me what happened. What’s political about that? I think that as a mother, I deserve to know. And as a woman, as she says, she always talks about a woman, I am a woman too. I think I deserve to know why my son is dead.”

Smith also stated that while she wasn’t surprised that Clinton was accusing her of lying, she didn’t want her government to call her a liar.

Smith concluded, “I want to speak to her personally, and I want to be able to ask her what happened, and I want her to be able to tell me what happened. I don’t believe she’s got the guts to do that. As Madeleine Albright said, there’s special place in hell for people like her, and I hope she enjoys it there.”

She doesn't know that after an investigation That they determined that Hillary was not at fault and not responsible for the 5 deaths at Benghazi ?
Why do people forget the many more deaths in the Middle East during the Bush Administration?
Was it okay then ?
This is ridiculous .
That poor woman is so distressed by her son's death she is desperate to find someone or something she can blame .

Such compassion for a mom grieving in the way she needs.

And to bring up Bush to deflect? What gall to do about a mourning mother.

These poor grieving people are ANGRY.  They are using their own voices.

She sure did.  Can you imagine her as president?  I shudder to think of what she could and would do to our country and citizens.

Huh... Interesting.  Lets read another perspective:

The anti-Hillary Clinton ad that’s angering some family members of Benghazi victims

 

During Tuesday night’s Democratic presidential debate on CNN, a provocative anti-Hillary Clinton commercial aired, set to haunting music and featuring the photo of slain CIA contractor, Glen Doherty, who was killed during the 2012 attacks at U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya. With the contractor’s photo dominating the screen, a narrator begins speaking, as if Doherty himself were talking from the grave.

“Dear Hillary Clinton, I’d like to ask you why you ignored calls for help in Benghazi and then four Americans were murdered,” the narrator says, pretending to be Doherty.

The commercial, paid for by the Alexandria, Va.-based StopHillaryPac, doesn’t stop there. The ad goes on to portray the three other Americans killed in the Benghazi attacks, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, as if they were all speaking from their graves, denouncing Clinton, whose response to the attacks while she was Secretary of State has come under ceaseless scrutiny from Republicans. The instant reaction to the commercial on Twitter was scathing. For starters, the commercial misspelled Libya.

But people also attacked it for exploiting the images of four people killed in the attack for a very partisan issue on national television. The Post reached out to family members of all four victims profiled in the commercial. None of them had seen the commercial, but once they were given a link to the ad or heard its description, most were angry.

In the commercial, after Doherty condemns Clinton, the ad then shows a picture of Tyrone Woods, another CIA contractor killed during the assault, with a voice pretending to be him.

“I’d like to know why you lied saying the attack was a response to an Internet video,” Woods supposedly says from the grave.

“I’d like to hear why you tried to silence the Benghazi whistleblower,” says yet another voice, playing Sean Smith, a State Department IT technician, as his smiling face is shown.

And, then for the climax, the image of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens pops up.

“But Mrs. Clinton, I can’t. What difference does it make?” the dead ambassador is supposed to be saying, as the commercial ends with a close-up of his flag-and-flower decorated headstone.

Reached by phone, Mary Commanday, Stevens’ mother, was furious. “I think it’s a terrible idea and if I could sue him I would,” said Commanday, who lives near Oakland, Calif. She watched the debate but only learned of the commercial after a Post reporter described it to her. “It’s an insult to someone who is dead. I think it’s a wrong use for the reputation of my son.”

Barbara Doherty, 81, was equally irate. “It’s horrifying,” she said. “I am so upset they’d have my son talking from the grave, saying don’t vote for this person. He wasn’t political. He would never have done something like this. 

Cheryl Croft Bennett, Woods’ mother, said she wishes someone from StopHillaryPac would have at least notified her before it ran or at least asked for her blessing. “Why does this kind of advertisement have to be out there? It’s hurtful. I don’t care what side of the political fence you’re on. How would you feel if this was your dead child, and it was done without your permission? How would these people [at StopHillaryPac] feel if their lost child was put in a political advertisement?”

Dan Backer, the counsel and treasurer of StopHillaryPac, said he thought it was important to “remind people what this is about—that these four guys lost their lives.” He added: “I certainly don’t think it was remotely exploitative. We were trying to convey an idea, emotions. It’s powerful and moving. If it was just me sitting in an office, asking those questions, nobody’s going to care. I have a face for radio.”

Asked if he should have gotten the families’ blessings before using their dead relatives’ images, Backer said: “I wouldn’t have the first clue how to contact them. How do you go about it? Google their names? How do you go about finding people like this?”

One relative, however, was impressed with the ad. Patricia A. Smith, of San Diego, Calif., who has given multiple interviews with the media railing against Clinton, said she was pleased. “I think it’s wonderful,” she said.

But would her son approve? She gave conflicting answers.

“My son, he was diplomatic. He would not be for it or against it,” Smith said. “He was a Democrat, a flaming liberal as he called it. He would probably send me 28 pages on why it shouldn’t be shown.”

Is she this mad at the terrorists that killed those people or is she keeping her anger reserved for the Secretary of State?

Madeline Albright said "there is a special place in hell for women who do not support other women" while supporting Hillary .
This mother misquoted her . She's probably still so upset about her son dying that she is confused .
Breitbart is promoting an attack on Hillary Clinton because they are very conservative .

The ad is in poor taste, but still does not disprove the fact that all the families are angry at being repeatedly lied to and have spoken out.
