Hillary Clinton forgets Benghazi, claims ‘we did not lose a single American’ in Libya

by Ben Wolfgang - The Washington Times  |  published on September 8, 2016

Glossing over the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi that claimed the lives of four U.S. diplomats, Hillary Clinton on Wednesday night claimed that “we did not lose a single American” due to military intervention in Libya.

Speaking at a veterans’ forum hosted by NBC News, the former secretary of state said she stands by the 2011 decision to take action in Libya and that America suffered no casualties.

“When [former Libyan leader Moammar] Gadhafi was threatening to massacre his population, I put together a coalition that included NATO, included the Arab League, and we were able to save lives. We did not lose a single American in that action,” she said. “And I think taking action was the right decision. Not taking it and permitting there to be an ongoing civil war in Libya would’ve been as dangerous and threatening as what we are now seeing in Syria.”

No Americans were lost in the military intervention itself, but the aftermath was a far different story. Four Americans were killed when the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was attacked by terrorists on Sept. 11, 2012, and Mrs. Clinton has come under intense fire for not taking greater security precautions for her diplomats.

Mrs. Clinton’s opponent in the 2016 presidential race, Republican Donald Trump, said the Obama administration badly mishandled the aftermath of the Libyan military intervention.

    She is absolutely correct, no Americans were killed by military action. They were killed because of military in-action. (it’s another “depending on what “is” means” moment in the life and lies of the Clintons) And the reasons for the in-action are HER responsibility. Next she’ll say the parents of those lost in Libya who hold her responsible are lying. (That’s right, she already said that)

        What has Google got to do with Hillarys problem?

  • Roy Fredrichsen

    Hillary Clinton is developing a brain disease that effects her memory and she tries to cover her tracks by lying about what ever question she is asked.

  • JimMay

    The new ad from the shebeast.

    Donald Trump did not sacrifice anything, that maybe true. Remember Hillary offered the supreme sacrifice FOUR AMERICANS then lied about it.

  • Garry A DeManty

    Hillary hears what she wants to hear and forgets what she wants to forget like how many people died in Benghazi and being around Obama most likely added to the problem

  • justinwachin

    She may be correct to say the effort to overthrow Gaddafi resulted in no loss of American lives, although it cost over 30,000 Libyan lives. He was killed in October 2011.

    Libya has not become a stable country where peace and prosperity abounds. Like so many of these Middle East countries I’m not sure that the people are better off after their long-term leader was toppled. The Obama and Bush administrations can’t point to any successes in our Middle East presence.

    Libya definitely became worse during her tenure as secretary of state.

    • Roy Fredrichsen

      Oh! Yes! That was a preview of her up-coming performance if she were to be elected President. Like O’Bama, nothing she has done has been constructive for anybody, clearing the way for ISIS to take-over.

  • outlawdealer

    She is right! We did not loose 1 life we lost 4. Her usual way of avoiding the truth is by saying something that does not tell the whole story. Or just lie depending on her mood.

    • gvette

      The problem is her loyal followers believe her. I guess that shows how bright they are.

      • outlawdealer

        Their ignorance is surpassed only by their stupidity.

  • dumbvet

    We really need to cut her some slack, after all she was the target of a sniper!
    LOL!

    • Roy Fredrichsen

      Yeah! She was busy accepting some flowers from a little girl when she claimed she came under sniper fire. A very dramatic lie from her.

  • 4USA2

    The parents of the 4 dead men who were killed in Benghazi must really detest her for even daring to say, “we didn’t lose one man in Benghazi”. She is an unbelievable LIAR! Hillary has a serious, serious, serious mental problem if she believes her “line” is going to fly with the American people and our military people and the parents of those men. Four lives were lost in Benghazi and IT DOES MATTER! She’s a basket case!

  • obama

    She stated what happened. No American lives were lost in the military intervention. The Republican Congress REFUSED to provide funding for additional security at our embassies. Put the blame where it is due. You right wingers have one mantra… blame Obama or Hillary. Get a life.

    • chw2000

      Yes, please do “put the blame where it belongs”. There where more Democrat votes to not provide funding than there where Republican votes. You should check that before you comment incorrectly.

      • obama

        Perhaps you should check on the additional crap the Republicans added to any funding bill.

        • gvette

          I don’t remember the congress starting QE3. That is the fed acting out.

        • chw2000

          Check the vote. It is clearly the Democrats that where the majority. Spin all you want, it was the Dems.

  • Patriot47

    Nope. We lost 4 you old hag.

  • Robert Pekarik

    This woman must be suffering from hydrocephalus which impairs memory and balance. She needs to retire not put America in jeopardy.

  • Tiger

    She is disgusting the new emails show just how little anyone’s life means to her or O. And for that matter Chelsea just as corrupt and ugly.
