Hillary Clinton Says Families of Benghazi Victims Are Lying

Hillary Clinton recently sat down with the editorial board of New Hampshire’s Conway Daily Sun to discuss the terrorist attacks in Benghazi and subsequent narrative pushed by the Obama administration that they were the result of a YouTube video.

When presented with two choices – the families of the Benghazi victims said Clinton told them it was caused by the video, while Clinton said that she had not made those statements – she pointed the finger squarely at the victims families.

Sun columnist Tom McLaughlin asked which of the two were lying, to which Clinton responded, “Not me.”

Via the Conway Daily Sun:

Sun Columnist Tom McLaughlin said she told an Egyptian diplomat the Benghazi attack was planned and not a protest but that she told family members of the deceased that the attack was the result of a demonstration. He said she then told George Stephanopoulos that she didn’t tell the families the attack was a demonstration about a film.

“Somebody is lying,” said McLaughlin.”Who is it?

Clinton replied, “Not me, that’s all I can tell you.”

Clinton went on to claim that any confusion was due to the “fog of war” but her newest accusation seems to suggest it was the families who were confused, not her.

However, four separate family members have corroborated stories that Clinton blamed the video.  Upon meeting those family members at Andrews Air Force Base on Sept 14, 2012, Clinton told the following about the video:

Patricia Smith (Sean Smith’s mother), Michael Ingmire (Sean Smith’s uncle), Kate Quigley (Glen Doherty’s sister), and Charles Woods (Tyrone Woods’ father).

Woods’ father kept handwritten notes from his meeting with Clinton.  Those notes read in part:

“We are going to have the filmmaker arrested who was responsible for the death of your son.”

When the Weekly Standard’s Stephen Hayes spoke with the elder Woods, he said “I remember those words: �?who was responsible for the death of your son.’ She was blaming him and blaming the movie.”

After her testimony before Congress earlier this year, Ingmire referred to Clinton as a “serial liar” and “definitely incompetent.”

“Hillary Clinton is a serial liar,” Ingmire told Fox News host Sean Hannity after the hearing.  She “really has a difficult time maintaining a consistent level of truth.”

He added that if Hillary isn’t complicit, “she’s definitely incompetent, and neither’s a personality trait [that] really belongs in the office of the president.”

Clinton also told the Conway Daily Sun that using Benghazi and the deaths of Americans for political purposes “dishonors them.”

It’s not their deaths that are being used for political purposes, it’s your lies and cover-up. After all, what’s more political than lying to the American people about a terrorist attack during a presidential campaign, as you did Ms. Clinton?

Your lies dishoner those dead Americans.
