The mother of one of the four Americans murdered at the September 11, 2012 Benghazi, Libya attack raked former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the coals in a highly-charged interview for Clinton’s refusal to speak with the families of the victims.
But Patricia Smith, mother of information management officer Sean Smith, had nothing but praise for the House Select Committee on Benghazi.
“She promised me, when the caskets came in to Washington D.C., she promised me to my face that she would call and tell me what happened, because I don’t know exactly what happened,” Smith told Fox News “America’s Newsroom” co-host Martha MacCallum, Tuesday.
The only thing Clinton told Smith was that the attack was the result of a spontaneous demonstration in reaction to a YouTube video.
“She has never called. Her office not only has not called, but they gave out information that I was not to know anything because I am not a member of the immediate family.”
“Yes, it’s only been three years,” Smith said, with emotion rising. “How long is it going to take before I find out something? Somebody in the government should let me know something.”
Smith said that she has since had discussions with security personnel who were there at the time.
“They told me personally that if they would be allowed to go — and they were told to stand down — if they would be allowed to go my son would be alive,” she said with emotion rising.
On the other hand, she expressed her support for Committee on Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy.
“Trey Gowdy told me that he’d give me answers once this thing is done,” Smith told MacCallum. “I think he’s doing a good job. I think he’s trying to find answers.”
The committee interviewed longtime Clinton aide Huma Abedin Friday, and will be questioning Clinton on October 22.
