The mother of one of the four Americans killed in the Benghazi terrorist attack told Breitbart News that Hillary Clinton lied to her and has been avoiding her at all costs, even canceling a paid speaking engagement specifically because she was in the crowd.
As Clinton prepares to testify before Rep. Trey Gowdy’s House Benghazi Committee Thursday, the pained words of a grieving mother are being drowned out by political pundits on all sides.
“The government hasn’t spoken to me. They haven’t told me a dang thing,” Mrs. Pat Smith told Breitbart News. Smith’s son Sean Smith was a U.S. Foreign Service information officer killed in the September 11, 2012 attack.
Smith said that she believes the Benghazi consulate was involved in a scheme to ship weapons to Syrian rebels, and she does not understand why Clinton will not own up to what happened.
“When I called up the [government’s phone line for grieving family members] they told me that I am not a part of the immediate family and they don’t have to do anything for me. Ever!” Smith said.
In 2014, Clinton even canceled a speech when she was tipped off to Mrs. Smith’s presence there.
“I paid 1,500 dollars to hear her speech,” Smith said. “She canceled at the last minute because she heard I was going to be there. They had to give me my money back. I know this is all true.”
“She [Clinton] put her arms around me, and said it was the video,” Smith said, referring to the administration’s blaming of a YouTube video called “Innocence of Muslims” for the violence in Benghazi. As Breitbart News reported, the Obama White House first tried to blame a different YouTube video before settling on “Innocence of Muslims.”
“Same thing with Panetta and Susan Rice and Joe Biden and Obama. They all put their arms around me [at the casket ceremony] and said they’re very sorry, it was the video,” Smith said. “I even asked to see my son in the casket and they wouldn’t let me. They said I had to go to Dover Air Force base to see him. This government is stinky. They’re doing rotten things to me.”
“Why won’t Hillary call me?” Smith asked. “I’m a mother. She doesn’t like mothers.”
Asked if she will be watching the Clinton hearing, Smith replied, “You betcha.”
