Benghazi Dooms Hillary’s Presidential Aspirations (+video)

If the revelations of the Benghazi whistle-blowers haven’t been enough, Hillary Clinton’s presidential aspirations should surely be laid to rest after enough Americans see the below video.

The mother of Sean Smith, one of the Americans killed in Benghazi due to Obama’s and Hillary’s willful inaction, is continuing to angrily confront the Administration for not coming clean on what happened.

In the interview, Pat Smith describes the minimal contact that she’s had with the Administration. And what little contact she has had is “all lies.”

She angrily concludes, “I blame Hillary.”

If you don’t watch anything else in the following video, skip forward to Hillary Clinton’s 20-second outrageous outburst (2:18 to 2:38), that Ms. Smith then comments on. Hillary’s presidential aspirations should be dead in the water if enough Americans see this clip:


CNN’s JACK TAPPER: One woman still looking for answers is Pat Ms. Pat Smith. Her son, State Department Information Officer Sean Ms. Pat Smith was one of the four Americans killed. Pat, thanks so much for being here. I know this is not an easy time. How are you holding up?

MS. PAT SMITH: Terrible. I cry every night. I don’t sleep at night. I need answers.

CNN’S JACK TAPPER: What do you want answers to? What do you not know?

MS. PAT SMITH: Why was there no security for him? When they were supposed to have security and the security that they did have was called back. It just — things do not add up and I’m just told lies.

CNN’S JACK TAPPER: Last week, you heard this in the piece the White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said that Benghazi happened a long time ago.

MS. PAT SMITH: Yes, it did.

CNN’S JACK TAPPER: Eight months ago.


CNN’S JACK TAPPER: What is your reaction to that?

MS. PAT SMITH: Why don’t they have answers by now? They’ve had plenty of time to come up with something other than the things they have not told me.

CNN’S JACK TAPPER: Are you concerned at all that the hearings and Benghazi that has become a political issue, the Republicans have turned it into a political issue. The Democrats have turned it into a political issue as opposed to being a scandal and a tragedy apart from politics?

MS. PAT SMITH: Of course, it’s political. That’s the way it’s been. That’s how they’re treating it. That’s what they’re doing with it. They’re making it into something that — why don’t they just do their job? They didn’t do their job and now they’re hiding behind the word political and going from there.

CNN’S JACK TAPPER: You have expressed disappointment in the past because President Obama, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, then Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, all of them came to you, talked to you.


CNN’S JACK TAPPER: And then you haven’t heard from them. Have you heard from anybody in the Obama administration? Have you gotten any outreach or any answers at all?

MS. PAT SMITH: I got one telephone call from a clerk that was a couple days after it happened. He was reading to me from the time line, which I already had. And that was it. And since then, all they have told me is that I am not part of the immediate family so they don’t want to tell me anything.

CNN’S JACK TAPPER: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified about the Benghazi tragedy shortly before she left office. I want to play a little bit of what she said.


HILLARY CLINTON, FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE: With all due respect, the fact is, we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.


CNN’S JACK TAPPER: What was your reaction to that?

MS. PAT SMITH: Well, that’s what I want to know. Why did it happen? And she is in charge. Why couldn’t she do something about it? I blame her.

CNN’S JACK TAPPER: You blame Secretary of State Clinton.



MS. PAT SMITH: Because that’s her department. She is supposed to be on top of it. Yet she claims she knows nothing. It wasn’t told to her. Well, who is running the place?

    If, by chance, Hillary will be called again to testify regarding Benghazi, she will never show up!!! Somehow,cleverly, she will come down with some fake ailment to put her in a hospital bed!! How correct the old saying is——-THE TRUTH HURTS

    • MrCReed54

      Yah she might fall and brake a finger nail or something!!

  • doug43

    Yes no doubt Hillary should get prison time, but so should Obama and maybe others(?)! To allow Hillary to take the fall alone for this would future the injustice we have been dealing with since it all started! Lies, cover-up and not giving the families of those killed any peace of mind.

    I would sue the Governments A$$es off for mental damages. Just because! And for anyone that would suggest that this idea of suing would cost all of us….don’t be fooled! Our Government will send billions of our hard earned tax dollars anywhere and everywhere they so choose! So at least these families would get the money and spend it here in America!

    Back on point however, oust Obama, Hillary and anyone else that decided that it would not be in Obama’s Re-Election interest to protect and Save our People!!! Aiding and Abedding the enemy in Killing Americans doing their elected duties for the United States of America!! If I were a Judge…I would sentence them each to life in Prison without the possibility of ever getting out! Send them to Gitmo and send a drone to close Gitmo, once we get our security people out of harms way! Like killing two bird with one stone!

  • Schnable

    Hillary never expected to be cornered and vilified by her own lies. She has been running around the world with her lover and adoring entourage doing as she pleased on the taxpayers’ dollar. The State Dept became a cess pool of ineffectiveness as she left it leaderless to pursue her own rewards. Now she will face the consequences which would kill off the normal politician, but never think that she will go down without a stout fight to hold on to her dreams of sitting the oval office.

  • Lemrob

    We as Americans want and deserve the truth about Benghazi. I hope these hearings will bring that out and proper procedures can be implemented and prosecutions can be carried out; if necessary. The families deserve closure. Hilleary needs to be tried for perjury and murder and Obama for murder and dereliction of duty..

  • Hillary doesn’t deserve to wear the dress Monica Lewinsky was wearing while having a tasty snack with Bill more less a chance at the Oval Office. Go work at a daycare and try being a parent fulltime first.

  • MrCReed54

    I AM HAPPY HILLARY IS SHOWING HER TRUE COLOERS NOW! I would rather see her for what she is right now, because I would hate to get another Obama in office! Because if she gets in you know dam well that’s what we will get with her in office! SO IMPEACH Obama NOW AND KEEP HILLARY OUT!!!

  • Disgustged

    Thanks goodness she is finally being seen for who and what she is. A traitor to America. She does NOT deserve to hold any type of office.

  • reggiec

    What needs to be done is to drive every member of the Obama administration out of office and never let any of them ever get near any position of responsibility again. If they are not directly involved in this administraytion’s massive corruption; they enabled it.

  • Barry_Suxx

    Personally I’m just STUNNED that the demoRAT party is apparently SOOOO desperate now that they are ACTUALLY CONSIDERING using that wretched Old HAG Billary for their 2016 pres-Candidate.

    Talk about ‘Road-Kill’…..

    • Charles

      Now, that, I like!!!! Very good Mr Barry

  • Paul

    You’re in LALA Land if you think the American Press will allow their “darling” Obama or the next President, Hillary Clinton, to get ANY “bad press” over this. The American Press is the the propaganda mouthpiece of the American Socialist Party. Good luck with that.

  • MrChicken

    I would bet anything that Obama gave the order for the military to “Stand Down”. He didn’t want us to battle his Muslim buddies. When a few brave Navy Seals disobeyed his order and fought anyway, the Muslims thought they had been betrayed and that is why they drug our Ambassador through the streets. Hillary just took the order from the Weasel (Obama). Both of them should be in jail.

  • TJL

    Its interesting that this even made it onto CNN.
    There seemed to be an eagerness to just finger Clinton and leave Obama out of it, and jump out of it right there.
    Looks like a setup to try and isolate the issue to just Clinton, at least for the viewing public, to divert attention from Obama.
    Most of the public is ignorant to the released facts in this case, but those of us who read these articles know that there is no way Obama isn’t guilty if Clinton is, because of the flow of events.
    So, Jack did the usual spin job and avoided the questions that should have been asked when the blame was focused on Clinton.
    Yes, she was at fault, but by now every journalist knows that her faults are intertwined with Obamas.
    Clinton is a withered old hag and has no interest in the 2016 electrons. Her time has passed and she knows it, and she also knows that she can live a very comfortable life on “fall guy” pay.
    Besides, she knows that they will never pick her over Michelle for a 2016 run.
    This Pat Smith gal either played right into their hands by chance with her choice of words, or she’s part of the game.
    My guess is that she was lead into that thought process by clever pre-interview questions which lead her to conclude that this was exclusively a Clinton issue.


      This is the GOPs game, not the MSM. They only wanted to soil Obama with Benghazi before the 2012 election. Now, they’re turning it all on Hillary to gain leverage against their peceived threat in 2016. You think Michelle Obama will run in 2016? You’re just dumb. So is this righty propaganda blog. Hillary cleans any GOP candidate’s clock in 2016 if she runs. You’re just too dumb to realize that the American people aren’t so dumb as to not see through these constant conspiracy fantasies drummed up by the right just to disparage this POTUS for their own gain. This act is so old, it’s transparent and pathetic.

      • TJL

        If your reply is meant toward my comment, you are the one who is dumb.
        I never said anything about MSM, and you know nothing about the terror attack on 9/11/2012, otherwise you wouldn’t imply that it was somehow orchestrated by the GOP for political purposes. Nor did I say or imply that I even like the GOP, nor did I say that I wanted Hillary to be kept out of the elections in 2016.
        I did say that Hillary is being made the fall guy for Obama and that she is going to be pushed aside in 2016, just like she was in the 2008 elections. She should have been the Dem pick, not Obama.
        You don’t know my political leanings by my comments, you just hatefully and ignorantly assumed. Nor do you know my political leanings by reading this comment, because all I am saying is that Obama is bad and he has effectively destroyed Hillary. Not just the GOP sees Obama as bad. Whether I like Hillary or not is irrelevant, its a fact that Obama has used up Hillary in a very bad way. She is spent. She is used up, that’s why she isn’t talking 2016. Get it.
        And, if you think I’m dumb for thinking that Michelle has a better chance than Hillary, you didn’t see what happened in 2008.
        Your mindset is transparently ignorant and pathetic, because you are living in the same fantasy land that many liberals live in. You are an embarrassment to the Democratic party… or are you the norm in your circles? Think I’m wrong? We’ll see who’s right in a couple years when the 2016 campaign begins. Until then, chill.


  • For Impeachment

    This is a good thing that she won’t be running for president. She should be in jail for treason.


      Grow up. where’s your outrage over not 4 dead Americans, but 4,000 dead soldiers at the hands of Bush/Cheney’s lies about WMDs? This lady says it was Hillary’s job, yet Benghazi was under purview of CIA. Another right-wing wit ch hunt in their desperate grab to regain power. Most people aren’t as stupid as these blogs and the idiots who buy into them. Benghazi has been politicized since before the bodies were cold. Believe this: because of the right’s attempts to leverage this tragedy with false accusations, endless congressional inquiries, etc., Hillary will clean any GOP candidate’s clock. Bet on it. The stupid GOP keeps doing it to themselves. They have much more dollars than sense. Buh-bye.

    Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely. And these people are pros! They are in the business of covering up, blaming others, and not standing up to their own mistakes. There is a reason for this. They believe they never make mistakes. Liars never do.

  • Joe1938

    Re “Benghazi Dooms Hillary’s Presidential Aspirations ”; Considering what has happened in the last two presidential elections, Hillary may end up back in the Whitehouse.
