Pat Smith, mother of slain U.S. Foreign Service information officer Sean Smith, took aim at former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton for her role in the Benghazi attack where her son died.
“All she cares about is her own self,” Smith said Thursday on “Fox & Friends.”
“She lied to my face. I want the whole world to know that she lied to my face. You don’t want this person to be president,” Smith added.
Smith said Clinton, who is expected to run for the White House in 2016, promised to keep her in the loop on investigations into her 34-year-old son’s death.
“She promised me face-to-face at the casket ceremony that she would check on this thing and call me back, because I said I wanted to know what happened. And Hillary never called back. She never checked on anything,” Smith said.
“And not only that, but she knew at the time that it was wrong what she was telling me,” she added, referring to the administration’s original explanation that blamed the attack on a YouTube video.
Nearly a year after the bombing of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, questions remain about exactly what took place during the raid. The State Department announced Tuesday that four mid-level employees, originally placed on paid administrative leave for their involvement, would be reinstated.
Smith had no question where to look for answers about the events surrounding her son’s death.
“All I do know is that Hillary was responsible. It was her department. And if it wasn’t her, then it was Obama, who left on vacation as soon as it happened,” she said.
Smith expressed her determination to keep the attack a topic of discussion until the administration provides answers about what happened.
“It’s not going away. It’s still there. It just hasn’t been resolved yet. I’m here to say that I don’t want it resolved until somebody gets up and takes responsibility for what they did,” she said.
