Hillary Clinton has been exonerated over her involvement in the Benghazi attacks, after years and millions spent by Congress looking into the tragedy. Fox News doesn’t care about the Congressional findings, and still use every chance they get to pin the attack on her.
Appearing on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, she had some words about the Benghazi attack and the report that followed.
First, she talked about the parents of those killed during the attack, who place the place solely on Clinton. Clinton said, “My heart goes out to both of them. Losing a child under any circumstance, especially in this case — two State Department employees, extraordinary men, both of them, two CIA contractors gave their lives protecting our country, our values — I understand their grief and the incredible sense of loss that can motivate that,” Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, said on “Fox News Sunday.”
Pat Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, who was killed in the attacks, said while speaking at the Republican National Convention earlier this month that she blamed Clinton personally for the death of her son. “He was murdered by radical Islamic terrorists,” she said. “I blame Hillary Clinton personally for the death of my son. She lied to me and then called me a liar. … She looked me squarely in the eye and told me a video was responsible.”
Then the conversation about the infamous video started. The transcript follows:
WALLACE: One reason that 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.
CLINTON: 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.
CLINTON: 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. I had already said it was terrorism. There was no doubt it was terrorism. I think there’s been a confusion in the minds of some and exploiting that confusion for the advantage of others —
WALLACE: But I have a quote here that said —
CLINTON: But look at everything I said, because this goes back on all the investigations. There were riots, there were protests, there were efforts to breach our embassies.
WALLACE: Yes, but not in Benghazi. That wasn’t what that is about.
CLINTON: No, but I’m just telling you, we were looking at the whole world. The whole world was aflame.
