Hillary Clinton repeatedly denies a MAJOR part of her original statements regarding the Benghazi attack. In her recent interview with Chris Wallace, she DENIED telling family members that the attack was sparked by an anti-Islam video and that it was not an act of terrorism. Here is a bit of the narrative from the Chris Wallace interview along with the actual words from Hillary Clinton at Andrew’s Air Force Base the day the Benghazi victims were brought home. The video below is recorded at the actual event at Andrews Air Force Base.
Chris Wallace: One reason people question your account, and this gets to the important question of trust, is because that day at Andrews, you never talked about terrorism. You talked about the video.
Hillary Clinton (comment at AAFB): We’ve seen the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with.
Hillary Clinton (response to Chris Wallace): No, that’s not – that’s not fair. If you go back and read everything that I said that day, I quoted people who talked about it being terrorism.
Hillary Clinton (comment at AAFB): The President of the Palestinian Authority who worked closely with Chris when he served in Jerusalem, sent me a letter remembering his energy and integrity and deploring and I quote, “an act of ugly terror.”
Hillary Clinton (response to Chris Wallace): I had already said it was terrorism. There was no doubt it was terrorism. I think there has been a confusion in the minds of some and exploiting that confusion for the advantage of others. But, look at everything I said. Because, and this goes back to all the investigators that were carried out. There were riots. There were protests. There were efforts to breach our embassies.
Chris Wallace: Yeah, but not in Benghazi. That wasn’t what this was about.
Hillary Clinton (response to Chris Wallace): No, but I’m just telling you, we were looking at the whole world. The whole world was aflame.
My Comment: To be fair and as honest as I can possibly be, I did actually go back, watch the entire event and found that where she claims to have quoted people who talked about it being terrorism, that was actually ONE person. Hillary DID absolutely, without doubt, blame “an awful internet video” and both she and President Obama promised the families that “those responsible” would be brought to justice which was obviously VERY misleading.
As always, I am not asking you to take my word for it. I am presenting the facts and links to where you can review the facts yourself to draw your own conclusion. It is my own personal conclusion that Hillary did and does continually lie when it comes to her comments to the families of those murdered in Benghazi.
