Kate Quigley, the sister of Glen Doherty, one of the victims of the Benghazi terrorist attack, stated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “did a fairly good job answering some of the questions,” but used their meeting “to basically perpetuate what she knew was untrue” about the nature and motive of the attack on Thursday’s “AC360” on CNN.
Quigley said of Hillary’s testimony before the Benghazi Select Committee, “overall, I thought she did a fairly good job answering some of the questions. You know, as expected, a lot of the real answers that we’re looking for were kind of brushed off, or not answered in the detail that we would like, but in general, it was what I expected it to be.”
Quigley, after being asked what Hillary said during their meeting, “I met her when we were at Andrews Air Force Base, and, you know, she spoke to my family about how sad we should feel for the Libyan people because they’re uneducated, and that breeds fear, which breeds violence, and leads to a protest. And I remember thinking at the time, ‘Wow, how selfish of me. I’ve never really thought about the Libyan people. I’ve been so consumed with my own grief and loss and concern,’ and when I think back now to that day and what she knew, you know, it shows me a lot about her character that she would choose, in that moment to basically perpetuate what she knew was untrue.”
She added, “I thought about it, and I never spoke about it for a long time, but, you know, eight days later was Glen’s funeral, and at funeral the priest mentioned in his eulogy how sad he was that religion was involved in his death. So, this is eight days after the attack that that story is still out there, and, you know, I would say that’s a big difference. You know, we don’t — you don’t get a second eulogy. So, that makes a big difference to me.”
