Hillary Clinton: Mother of Benghazi victim ‘absolutely wrong’ to say I lied (Video)

clinton2After getting hammered by Jorge Ramos on her email at Wednesday’s debate, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton actually got asked a question about Benghazi.

Ramos played a clip of Patricia Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, one of those killed in Benghazi, calling Clinton a liar for blaming the terrorist attack on a YouTube video.  The audience booed the question, but Ramos pressed on.

Clinton said she feels sympathy for all the victims’ families, including Smith, but told Ramos, “She’s wrong, she’s absolutely wrong.”

Twitchy posted some of the reaction to the question:

Actually, no.

Twitchy added:

Clinton claimed but showed no sign of remorse, and went so far as to call Smith “absolutely wrong,” dodging by claiming that she and the State Department were working from whatever limited information they had available.

(An email obtained by Judicial Watch appears to show the State Department scrambling on the night of Sept. 11 to link the Benghazi attack to an Internet video, even revealing that the “White House is reaching out to U-Tube [sic] to advise.”)

This was wonderful to see.  While I disagree with the way Ramos went after Trump, I thought he did an excellent job confronting Clinton on these issues.  Someone actually asking Clinton hard questions about some of her scandals is quite rare.  Now if they would only ask her about the rest of her 40-year career of lying and scheming her way to the top
