For some politicians, there is no floor to how low they’re willing to sink to cover their own behinds.
Rather than taking accountability for her mistakes during the Benghazi attacks, Hillary Clinton is accusing the families of the victims of lying instead.
Hillary Clinton, in Wednesday night’s CNN debate, accused the Benghazi families of being dishonest when telling the media she told them a YouTube video sparked the attack that killed four Americans. Univision’s Jorge Ramos played a video of Sean Spicer’s mother, Pat Smith, recounting how Susan Rice, Leon Panetta, and Hillary Clinton told her “it was a video when they knew it was not a video” — and Ramos noted Hillary e-mailed Chelsea Clinton the night of the attack, telling her an Al Qaeda affiliate was responsible.
“Did you lie to” these families, he asked.
“She’s wrong, she’s absolutely wrong,” Clinton replied. “I and everybody in the administration, all the people she named, the president, the vice-president, Susan Rice, we were scrambling to get information that was changing literally by the hour. And when we had information, we made it public but then sometimes we had to go back and say we have new information that contradicts it.”
Whether or not the information changed, Hillary Clinton needs to take accountability for her words.
If she “misinformed” the families of the victims as intel was coming in, she should apologize and move on. Instead, she is blaming and attempting to discredit a grieving mother.
