“Hillary Clinton is a serial liar,” one said and it pretty well sums it up…….
Family members of two of the four Americans murdered during the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks in Benghazi had harsh words for Hillary Clinton following her testimony in front of the House Select Committee on Benghazi on Thursday.
In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Kate Quigley, the sister of CIA contractor Glen Doherty, recalled a meeting she and her family had with Clinton at Andrews Air Force Base three days after the terrorist attack in which the then-secretary of state said that the onslaught started as a spontaneous protest.
“She spoke to my family about how sad we should feel for the Libyan people because they’re uneducated, and that breeds fear which breeds violence and leads to a protest,” Quigley recalled.
But as was made clear in Thursday’s hearing, Clinton knew even before the attacks were finished that terrorists with links to al-Qaeda were involved. Clinton emailed her daughter Chelsea stating that terrorists were involved. She relayed the same information to the president of Libya and the prime minister of Egypt in conversations in the day or two after the attack. But despite privately stating that terrorists were involved in the attack, Clinton parsed her words in public. And many others in the Obama administration outright tied the motive for the attacks on a YouTube video.
“When I think back now to that day and what she knew, it shows me a lot about her character that she would choose in that moment to basically perpetuate what she knew was untrue,” Quigley told Cooper.
“It was very strange, and I thought about it and never spoke about for a long time,” Quigley said of her interaction with Clinton.
She did acknowledge that Clinton “did a fairly good job answering some of the questions” she was asked Thursday. But “as expected, “a lot of the real answers that we’re looking for were kind of brushed off,” Quigley said.
Several times during Thursday’s hearing, Clinton spoke in somber tones about the murdered Americans. She also accused Republicans of exploiting their deaths and the pain of their families for political gain.
