Pat Smith | Mother of Benghazi Victim | 2016 Republican National Convention

Patricia Smith, my son Sean was one of 40 American soldiers in
2012 first attack at been Benghazi.
Sean was a wonderful son and father to my two amazing
grandchildren, Samantha and Nathan, now 10 and 11.
He was proud to serve his country with the United States’
foreign service. Every time I talked to Sean, the
night before the terrorist attack, he told me, mom, I am
going to die. From the embassy, he explained.
And when he asked why, he never received a response.
Nobody listened. Nobody to care.
The very next day, he was murdered . Radical Islamic terrorists.
To this day, I don’t even know why a guy like Sean was sent to
Benghazi. That night we lost sons,
brothers, fathers and husbands. We lost four brave Americans who
made the ultimate sacrifice for the country they chose to serve
and the American people lost the truth for all of this grief, for
all of this, the tragedy in Benghazi has brought upon
America, I blame Hillary Clinton Clinton!
[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] I blame Hillary Clinton
personally for the death of my son.
That’s personally. And in an email her daughter
shortly after the attack, Hillary Clinton blamed it on
terrorism. But when I saw Hillary Clinton,
she sure is, she sure is, she lied to me and then called me a
liar. (audience booing) .
When I saw Hillary Clinton at Sean’s coffin ceremony just days
later, she looked me squarely in the eye and told me a video was
responsible. (audience booing) .
Since then I have repeatedly asked Hillary Clinton to explain
to me the real reason that my son is dead.
I am still waiting .
Whenever I call the state State Department no one would listen
to me because they say “I am not a member of the immediate family
family. ” (audience booing).
Sean is my son. Hillary Clinton is a woman, a
mother and a grandmother of two. I am a woman, a mother, and a
grandmother of two. How could she do this to me?
[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] How could she do this to any
American family? Donald Trump is everything
Hillary Clinton is not. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] He is blunt, direct and strong.
He speaks his mind and his heart heart.
And when it comes to threats posed by Islamic terrorism, he
will not hesitate to kill the terrorists who threaten American
lives! [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] He will make stronger America
stronger not weaker. This entire campaign comes down
to a single question: If Hillary Clinton can’t give us
the truth, why should we give her the Presidency?
[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] That’s Hillary .
She deserves to be in stripes. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] [Music.]

  • This is… I have no words for this. She needs to get over it, at this point she's just being a whiny bitch. What does she even want? She needs to learn to forgive people. I have no respect for this women after seeing this. She's making herself look bad. I think her son would frown upon this.

  • A shameful, almost pornographic use of this woman's anger as a weapon. This is intended to appeal to the most prurient, unsophisticated and crude interests. Shameful.

  • The purpose is to get the truth out, since much of the media never reported it. It does show Hillary's character, or lack there of. Hillary is running her own agenda, and has been shown to be a liar, and not out for America/s interests. She has shown us that over and over, she will never unit this country.

  • Someone should tell her that when the GOP gained control of the house in 2011 they blocked money earmarked for increased security at US Embassies and Consulates across the world. Of course, no one wants to talk about that little fact here.

  • This poor woman has been lead to keep such hate in her heart all because of right wing propaganda. Absolutely shameful. The truth is known about what happened to her son, 7 federal investigations have shown it; all she really needs to do is read one. But repubicans and right wing media insist on peddling the FALSE narrative that Clinton was solely responsible for Benghazi and what happened there. The truth is, it was a failure of bureaucracy and intelligence that lead to the tragedy, NOT some evil conspiracy by Clinton to get these men killed. The "video lie" republicans keep whining about was only incorrect intelligence, remember when Rice and Clinton talked about it, it was THE NEXT DAY after the attack. In fact there WERE protests going on in other areas because of that video, so at the time it was safe to surmise that this might have been a protest on wrong as well. First reports are often wrong, and this was another case of that. Hell, the aptly named rep. McCarthy even admitted that these investigations weren't a search for truth, they were a direct effort to screw over Clinton. These dishonorable, scummy right winger will continue to push this blatantly false, deceitful narrative to stoke hate in this poor woman's, and their electorate's hearts until the day Clinton dies.

    My question is, when are these republicans going to hold 7 hearings to lynch Bush and Condoleezza Rice for STARTING A WAR and destabilizing the Middle East over much worse false intelligence.

  • She failed to blame her son's death on the terrorist. The attack happened so quickly and the Benghazi reports clears Hillary of any wrongdoing. Read the seven congressional hearing reports and find your answers there.

  • Just heard Sean Hannity on the radio ranting about those despicable Democrats for shamelessly exploiting the grief of gold star parents to score political points… what is this?
