Patricia Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, an information management officer who was murdered during the Benghazi attacks, called into CNN today and said, “Hillary Clinton doesn’t care.”
“My son is gone. He’s dead. Nobody has been standing up to say it’s their fault.”
“Why were those decisions made,” Smith continued. “Not a bunch of baloney that they have been handing out. But why were those decisions made? It’s just a whole bunch of lies because nobody has talked to me about anything. Not about anything,” she yelled.
“Yes I’m upset. And I think I’ll be upset until the day I die. They Don’t care,” Smith shouted. “They don’t give a damn. You would think that after all this time, all I’ve asked for is for Hillary to give me a telephone call and tell me what happened. If it’s classified, fine. Whisper it in my ear. But just tell me.”
In a recent interview with ABC News’ Diane Sawyer, former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton said she left security decisions in Benghazi up to the “experts” in the field. “I’m not equipped to sit and look at blueprints to determine where the blast walls need to be, where the reinforcements need to be. That’s why we hire people who have that expertise,” Clinton said.
“She gets to know,” Smith added, “everybody else up there in the big shot wing gets to know, but the mother of the son that got killed is not allowed to know these things.”
The CNN anchor then told Smith if she could ask Hillary Clinton one question, what would it be.
“Why did she not give security,” Smith replied, “to those people that were there? She sent them in there to do whatever it is that they were supposed to do.”
“Why can’t they just tell me the truth? That’s something that should be allowable,” Smith said as the interview ended. “She doesn’t care, she wants to be president.”
