Hillary Clinton heckled on Benghazi at her award ceremony

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was repeatedly heckled by a demonstrator after she was presented the Liberty Medal-2013 award from former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush Tuesday night, the eve of the one-year anniversary of the attack on the U.S. foreign mission in Benghazi, Libya.

At the close of what The Washington Times described as Clinton’s “mostly bland [acceptance] speech,” a heckler brought life to the proceedings by chanting “Benghazi! Benghazi! Benghazi!”

The prolonged Benghazi terrorist attack, which took the lives of four Americans including that of Amb. Christopher Stevens, occurred when Clinton was still secretary of state, and came after repeated unanswered requests by embassy staff directed to the Department of State for beefed-up security in the region.

For several weeks after the attack, administration officials, including both Clinton and President Obama, called the incident a spontaneous demonstration that they blamed on an anti-Muslim YouTube video.

Emails revealed months later proved that the administration knew from the start that it was a well-planned and executed terrorist attack.

Watch the action below. Please note, the sound is barely audible. You’ll need to get close to the speaker to hear.
