Hillary Clinton Boasts That “We Didn’t Lose a Single Person” in Libya

The four Americans murdered in the Benghazi terrorist attack seem to have slipped her mind.

First she blamed the Benghazi attack on a video. Now she’s erasing the fact that there were victims.

During an MSNBC Democratic town hall, Hillary Clinton made the shocking declaration that “we did not lose a single person” in Libya. She makes the claim while defending her policy as Secretary of State.

See for yourself. Her claim comes at the :51 mark:

 

 

“Is Libya perfect? It isn’t,” Clinton explained. “But did they have two elections that were fair where they voted for moderates? Yes they did. Changing from a dictator that has hollowed out your country to something resembling a functioning state and even hopefully more of a democratic one doesn’t happen overnight. Libya was a different kind of calculation and we didn’t lose a single person … We didn’t have a problem in supporting our European and Arab allies in working with NATO.”

The Democratic frontrunner made no mention of the Benghazi terror attacks of September 11, 2012 that killed U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, information officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. Perhaps this will shake her memory.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton prays during the transfer of remains ceremony marking the return to the US of the remains of the four Americans killed in an attack in Benghazi, Libya, at the Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland on September 14, 2012. US Ambassador Christopher Stevens died on Tuesday along with three other Americans in the assault on the consular building in Benghazi, on the 11th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

As for Clinton’s claim that helping overthrow Moammar Gadhafi put Libya toward “something resembling a functioning state,” America’s top general in Africa, Army Gen. David Rodriguez, declared Libya a failed state just six days ago. Testifying before the Senate Armed Services Committee, Rodriguez said it would take “10 years or so” to achieve stability there, adding, “The continued absence of central government control will continue to perpetuate violence, instability and allow the conditions for violent extremist organizations to flourish until the (government) and appropriate security forces are operational within Libya.”

Even Secretary of State John Kerry when asked last month if Libya had become a failed state said, “It’s close. If they can’t get themselves together, yes, it will be a failed state.”

Then again, as Hillary Clinton herself said when testifying about the death of the four Americans in Benghazi, “What difference, at this point, does it make?”

Thanks to Clinton’s latest gaffe  — a ready-made attack ad — perhaps she will find out during the fall campaign.
