Two Benghazi Parents Sue Hillary Clinton for Wrongful Death, Defamation

by PETE WILLIAMS | NBC News  |  published on August 9, 2016

The parents of two Americans killed in the 2012 terrorist attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya, filed a wrongful death lawsuit in federal court Monday against Hillary Clinton.

In the suit, Patricia Smith and Charles Woods, the parents of Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods, claim that Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server contributed to the attacks. They also accuse her of defaming them in public statements.

Smith was an information management officer and Woods was a security officer, both stationed in Benghazi.

“The Benghazi attack was directly and proximately caused, at a minimum by defendant Clinton’s ‘extreme carelessness’ in handling confidential and classified information,” such as the location of State Department employees in Libya, the lawsuit said.

While no such connection has ever been established, their lawsuit called it “highly probable” that Clinton sent and received information about the activities of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

    Clinton is pure evil. I hope they break her piggy bank.

    I hope and pray these women wins and puts HITLER HILLARY behind BARS forever.

    Hillary will claim sovereign immunity and likely have the case dismissed. There are some instances where the court system will allow a suit to proceed against a public official for something that happened while they were acting in an official capacity. I’m not sure that this will meet that threshold.

    The sad truth is that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama’s incompetence cost the Benghazi staff their lives. There isn’t much that can be done about it other than to use it to damage Ms. Clinton politically. President Obama is unlikely to ever face the voters again so he will not be held accountable for his failings in this case.

  • Good movie to see. WWII ” Attack” with Jack Palance and Eddie Albert. That is what should happen to those who abandoned our boys in the face of the enemy. Article 99 UCMJ cowardice in the face of the enemy. Top ranking officer gets the firing squad. That would be Obama.

    I PRAY that the Families get a REAL CLOSURE that this Low Life Anti American. Murder and Obama who was and still is Commander in Chief that he like Hillary just didn’t Care about YOUR Family in Benghazi. She and the Clinton Foundation and Family has RAPED this Country and Foreign Countries, not the Corrupt Government like OURS but the (PEOPLE) that the Clinton Foundation which put Corrupt Government Officials in Office and( 10’s of Thousands of people were Murdered because of them.) To the Families of the 4 TRUE Americans in Benghazi Not ALL AMERICANS believe this Hillary as she and Bill and their Corrupt Foundation has cost more lives. She and Obama should not only be sued but be put to DEATH for their CRIMES against YOU and the WHOLE WORLD. She thinks that she and Bill are above the law. As you see the head of the FBI is also a Board CEO in the Clinton’s Corrupt Foundation. We as TRUE Americans want to Thank-You for the Courage YOU and your Families has had to ENDURE. I pray that when Mr. Trump becomes President he will put an end to this Clinton Corruption and the Obama Corruption and they are tried for their Crimes and get the same thing we did in 1953 to the Rosenberg’s DEATH. We did it before the Nierenberg Crimes We need to do it again. The WORLD I WATCHING America needs to CLEAN HOUSE and make the White House Clean again because of all the Corruption that continues to come from the White House not just from Obama but from George W Bush Iran’s WEAPONS of Mass Destruction then the son another LIAR then this Lying Muslim Anti American Obama and his Muslim officials when he replaced Americans with Muslims, One being in charge of National Security. The SLAUGHTER of these 4 Americans in Benghazi was on Live TV and was seen Live and foreign Countries begged to come to their aid but was DENIED because they couldn’t reach the Commander In Chief or Hillary. then they got the Gust to say we need to move Forward Yes we should DEATH to Hillary and Obama for Espionage and TREASON and being a TRATIOR to America and the World. God Bless America and the People who gave their Lives to stop Corruption and also to Protect the American people so we can live to Fight another day

    Follow that money trail ! I am sure the Criminal Clinton Foundation has been behind most of the donations to the Hillary Clinton campaign !

    I wish the complainants in the Wrongful Death and Defamation Law Suit all the best and tell them to WATCH YOUR BACKS for the history and mysterious deaths of those that cross the Clintons is long list !

    • Army Vet 4444

      The only husband and wife team I know of, that has 47 “mysterious deaths” of workers, friends, and business associates. What are the odds of that happening?

  • Army Vet 4444

    While the “reality” in me has little hope this will “amount” to much for Hillary Clinton, I pray with all of the will my heart can muster, to the success of this venture, not only for the families, but for all of America to see SOME KIND of “justice” for Hillary. That is something that thus far has alluded the American public. Obviously the Justice system, having it’s reigns held by Loretta Lynch is as corrupt as the day is long. Perhaps the civil courts have yet to fall into the corruption the Criminal Courts have.


    I hope they get millions of the Clinton money.

    • Discusted

      Bankrupt the Clintons with a Lawsuit !

    • Harold Sammons

      That would be worst to Hillary than going to jail if they confiscated all her money and give it to the victems families; closed down the money laundering slush fund and then dropped her from the presidential race!

  • Shelly Shannon

    It’s about time. I am excited that Patricia Smith and Charles Woods have stepped to the forefront to go after Hillary Clinton. I can’t imagine waking up every morning knowing that the people who are responsible for this travesty refuse to take responsibility. Even after it was confirmed in the Bengazi report, Hillary Clinton still lies about the facts. My prayers go out to Mrs. Smith and Mr Woods that they are able to achieve some closure for their families.

  • MoonBeamWatcher

    As the anniversary of 911 came near OTHER embassies CLOSED to protect their nations representatives, while Mr. Obamah and his agent Sec State HRC didn’t even supply the requested additional security . . . Chris Stevens even JOKED about maybe other countries could protect them. God forgive HRC and her Boss Imon, Husein, Barry, Barack Soeto Obama! I never will!

    • Worried Vet

      It’s disgusting they get away with this. Now Obama gave Iran 400 million more to help fund terrorist. Makes me wonder who side most of these liberals are on. You would think voters would see it for what it is, they would also see an American spy was hanged maybe because of hilllarys server. What’s it going to take to wake people up? Do we really have to give Hillary the power to finish off this country for these mindless people to wake up? If anyone votes for Hillary you will regret it if she wins. She don’t care about us people, she cares about money and power. We’re just stepping stones to her to get where she wants.

    Hillary must learn a lesson on this. Actually, she has $2 billion dollars to buy the 2016 election. All these monies did not come from her own pocket but from the American people who were sold to the world, and big time crones for a huge pay back when Hillary enters the WH.
    Now, Hillary as a result of her unsecured email server, 4 people died. In addition, she refused to provide security additional forces for the Ambassador who requested 600 times. Then she lied to the American people cause of death, she lied to the parents of the dead the cause of death, she accused the parents of the dead lying instead of her own mouth lying, adding insult to the pains of these mothers.
    Hillary Clinton must pay them big time.

      The Hilda-Beast can spend 10 billion, the media can cover her butt, lie to us, and the RINOs can rant and rave all they want. They can throw in as many presidential competitors as they want.
      The Hilda-Beast will not be the next president. Well what about the polls, answer, they are being manipulated. I think that the following are the real polls, as no one, or organization, or polling company called for this.


      Trump: 10,174,358 likes.
      Clinton: 5,385,959 likes.

      Nearly twice the number of people that “like” Clinton, like Trump.

      Even more, take a look at how Trump does when he posts a Facebook live stream video:

      Trump Live Stream Post — 21 hours ago: 135,000 likes, 18,167 shares, 1.5 million views
      Clinton Live Stream Post — 25 hours ago: 11,000 likes, 0 shares, 321,000 views

      Even worse for Clinton, the top comments on Clinton’s Facebook posts are often from Trump supporters, whereas the top comments on a Trump post are regularly Trump supporters, according to The Truth Division.

      That doesn’t look good for Hillary at all.


      Trump: 10.6 million followers
      Hillary: 8.1 million followers

      Not only does Trump beat Clinton on these numbers alone, The Daily Caller reported that researchers found that 70 percent of Trump’s Twitter followers are real supporters with 90 percent having a history of voting.

      According to the Washington Examiner, 41 percent of Hillary Clinton’s “followers” on Twitter are not real people.

      YouTube Live Stream:

      Trump: Averages 30,000 live viewers per stream
      Clinton: Averages 500 live viewers per stream

      Trump gets 5,900 percent more eyeballs on the screen than Clinton.


      Trump: 2.2 million followers
      Clinton: 1.8 million followers

      Trump beats the Clinton machine once again where Clinton should do well, since it’s got lots of pictures and not much substance — perfect for a Clinton supporter.


      Trump: 197,696 subscribers
      Clinton: 24,429 subscribers
      Hillary for Prison: 55,228 subscribers

      Not only does Trump have more subscribers, more than twice as many people subscribe to “Hillary for Prison” than just the Clinton page.

      The hacked Democrat National Committee emails released by WikiLeaks proved that the Clinton camp has to actually pay people to support her online — Trump supporters actually want to follow him on social media.

      These statistics easily refute the biased media and rigged polls that Trump is up against.

      Clinton and her cronies are afraid of the support Trump garners, which is why they resort to dirty tactics like this.

      Trump has the support of the people and in November we’ll see just how strong that is.

      The above is as of, August 8 2016

  • envk079

    Isn’t it amazing that folks are opposed to Trump because what he says either hurts their feelings or might hurt the feelings of others, whereas, HRC only does things that either kills Americans, or compromises our security, or lines her pockets as she trades influence. Is it really that difficult of a decision?

          Just get lost! I don’t need to have emails from your dirty business.

  • TexRancher

    Wasn’t Hillary equally responsible for the lack of security that was requested over and over? Wasn’t she responsible for the American personnel sent to this location in Benghazi without sufficient security? Haven’t there been weapons discovered used by the attackers that Hillary and Obama were responsible for? And just why were these people there in the first place knowing that it was extremely dangerous?

    • Rodney Steward

      They were left there to die, they knew to much and dead men can’t talk, Obama and Hellary were running guns and to the enemy and have been for 8 years!

      • Army Vet 4444

        In a “normal” world, that’s called TREASON. In whatever crazy upside down world we live in today, it’s “business as usual”.

        • Rodney Steward

          If we can ever get our country back, it’ll be Treason again, and death by Firing Squad! That is the correct judgement, right!

          • Snoopy

            Been saying that for months!!

  • retired4ever

    Although I think the courts will find it a frivolous law sui,t I agree that HRC called them liars and was the proximate cause of the death of their sons. HRC is a bald faced liar, always has been, but that doesn’t seem to make a difference to the left. Sad, very sad to see our country on the edge just waiting for hrc to give it the final push after BO put us there.

    • MoonBeamWatcher

      YES, Imon, BHO put America in the toilet and
      Hillary R. Clinton will flush us down the drain!

    • Shelly Shannon

      You might be right, but I’m hoping the court takes into consideration the investigation and report. Nonetheless, Clinton would be under oath if this goes that far, and I don’t think she can keep all her lies straight. I’m hoping that just the idea this is happening will slide her down in the polls. I also hope Obama gets pulled right into this too. Maybe she will “SHORT CIRCUIT”.

      • Army Vet 4444

        We can pray it happens just so. I just hope we see it on video.

      • 1947goldenjet

        Wait til she tells the judge “after 5 years, what difference does it make”.
