While defending her actions in northern Africa as secretary of state, Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton claimed Monday night that she “didn’t lose a single person” in Libya.
How soon we forget — or want to forget. She lost four people in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, including the U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens.
She made her assertion at an MSNBC town hall hosted by Chris Matthews.
Matthews wondered how Clinton was such an ardent supporter of a regime change in Libya while now opposing the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
“Libya was a different kind of calculation, and we didn’t lose a single person,” she told Matthews.
She admitted that Libya wasn’t perfect today, but added that since the regime change, it has had “two elections that were free and fair,” yet ignoring the fact that Islamic State terrorists have gained more power.

The moment she uttered those words social media exploded.

@GOP Hillary is correct, we didn’t lose (just) a single person. More than one.
