While Bill Clinton was amazed at what his wife was “put through” as she was grilled for hours by the Benghazi Select Committee, a Benghazi victim’s sister was equally amazed by his comment.
“The insensitivity of that comment is shocking. But clearly misguided sympathy runs in the family,” said Kate Quigley, sister of Benghazi victim Glen Doherty.
Appearing on Fox News’ “The Kelly File,” on Thursday, Quigley remembered the events of the day her brother’s coffin was brought to Andrews Air Force Base. At a time when the family was “raw” with grief, Clinton chose to speak to them about feeling sorry for the Libyan people and maintained the narrative that a protest sparked the attack that left four Americans dead.
“Clearly, they have it all wrong,” Quigley said, adding that then-Secretary of State Clinton arrived that day with a script and an agenda. “It just blows my mind that she would choose to take that stance on that of all days.”
Quigley recalled the Libyan ambassador speaking to her, after the ceremony that same day, about finding the terrorists responsible for the attack. “I was speechless,” Quigley said, “because those were the words I had been longing and needing to hear…that should have come from Mrs. Clinton.”
“She’s had so many opportunities to just tell the truth,” Quigley said. “And had that happened from the beginning, Benghazi would be a distant memory.”
