On September 11th, 2012, Islamic terrorists orchestrated attacks in Egypt and Libya on American diplomatic posts. In Benghazi, Libya, four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador, were murdered as they awaited help that would never come.
The following morning, as the consulate smoldered from the hours-long siege that occurred within-reach of military personnel, President Obama offered a ho-hum, canned speech about the need for justice… and then promptly boarded a plane and jet-set to Las Vegas.
The Obama Administration had hastily crafted a flimsy narrative surrounding the attack on America. They asserted that the attack had occurred as a random, spontaneous outburst of activism after the local population was enraged over a YouTube video depicting Muhammad, the Islamic prophet.
Though the narrative promptly collapsed, the Obama Administration has remained tight-lipped about the details surrounding Benghazi and has sought to stonewall congressional investigations at every turn.
Infamously, Hillary Clinton, when finally forced to testify before congressional investigators over the origin of the terrorist attack, questioned, “What difference, at this point, does it make?”
According to the mother of one of the Benghazi victims, it makes a big difference.
Patricia Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, has claimed that Hillary and the rest of the State Department have been extremely cagey in offering details concerning her son’s murder.
In an interview on Wednesday, Smith unleashed on Hillary, noting that the former secretary of state has refused to cooperate in her quest for answers about her son’s murder.
“She has not called me. She has not contacted me. She has not given me any information except to tell me that I am not a member of the immediate family, and I do not need to know,” Smith noted.
“They told you that?” a surprised CNN host Carol Costello questioned. “Oh my goodness.”
After Costello played the clip of Hillary flippantly wondering, “What difference, at this point, does it make?” Smith got heated.
“She’s lying, she’s absolutely lying,” Smith passionately asserted.
“I saw on the TV the bloody fingerprints on the walls over there. I asked specifically, ‘Are those my son’s fingerprints crawling down the walls, the bloody fingerprints?’” she said. “Nobody ever got back to me on that. Are those his fingerprints? Were those his fingerprints? What happened? Somebody’s got to tell me from the government.”
From the very beginning, the Benghazi investigative committee has been provided with shockingly few details and materials with which to conduct their investigation.
Smaller investigations conducted without the materials and testimonies requested by Congress, have concluded that there is little wrongdoing in the Benghazi episode.
These partial investigations are far from a comprehensive effort to uncover the truth, but are still frequently cited by liberal partisans as supposed proof of a Republican vendetta against Hillary Clinton who not only routinely denied security requests in the months leading to the terrorist attack in Benghazi, but who failed to act during the siege and helped craft and disperse a preposterous narrative to cover-up the origins of the attack.
This mother deserves answer and, quite frankly, so do the rest of America’s citizens.
