It’s hard to fathom how somebody can be as grossly disconnected from reality as Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton appears to be.
Widely considered to be her worst foreign policy debacle as Secretary of State, Clinton seems to have blocked the entire Benghazi terror attack from her memory. Almost as if her mind had been wiped clean – like her server.
Earlier in her campaign, Clinton actually claimed that “we didn’t lose a single person” in Libya during her tenure at the State Department.
As preposterous as it was the first time, she has now doubled down on that claim. In an interview for PBS Newshour, Clinton again defended her role in pushing the Obama administration to intervene in Libya saying, “After due diligence, we came up with a way of supporting their efforts that didn’t cost a single American life.”
Check out the video below …
She seems to have completely forgotten about Ambassador Stevens, Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods, and Sean Smith, all of whom were killed in a terrorist attack in Benghazi on the anniversary of 9/11.

Via The Daily Caller:
Hillary Clinton claimed that no American lives were lost in the United State’s intervention in Libya, apparently forgetting the four Americans who lost their lives in the Benghazi terrorist attack.
In an interview on PBS Newshour Wednesday, host Judy Woodruff asked Clinton, “We know that you, and you’ve talked about this, you encouraged the president to intervene in Libya in 2011. Recently President Obama said his worst mistake in office was probably failing to plan for the day after what he thought was the right thing to do in intervening there. How do you see your responsibility in that?”
“After due diligence, we came up with a way of supporting their efforts that did not cost a single American life,” Clinton claimed. “And we saved a lot of Libyan lives.”
As part of America’s effort in Libya, U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith, Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty were all killed in the Benghazi terrorist attack.
Is it any wonder the Clinton has been so willing to call the families of the victims liars, when she can’t even admit that four Americans were killed on the anniversary of 9/11?
Pat Smith, mother of Sean Smith, said “there’s a special place in hell for people like” Clinton.
Perhaps once she’s there the people that carried out the attack will remind her that we did actually lose lives in Libya due to her regime change efforts.
