Short-Term Memory: Hillary Forgets Four Americans Died in Benghazi

Shameful.

Hillary Clinton appeared on PBS News Hour on Wednesday and completely forgot about Ambassador Chris Stevens, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods -- the four Americans who lost their lives during the attack on the Benghazi consulate. 

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee discussed the Obama administration's decisions in Libya with Judy Woodruff, assuring "their efforts… did not cost a single American life:"

"Well, first of all, it's important to remember where we were and why the president made the decision he did, because this was a presidential decision.

"I've advised the president. Sometimes, he follows my advice. Sometimes, he doesn't. Sometimes, he uses a combination of what he hears from his advisers.

"We were looking at a potential disaster, as Qaddafi threatened to massacre large numbers of his population. The Europeans, our Arab allies were urging us to help them to try to prevent that.

"After due diligence, we came up with a way of supporting their efforts that did not cost a single American life. And we saved a lot of Libyan lives."

President Obama told Fox News's Chris Wallace in April that failing to plan for the aftermath of the United State's intervention in Libya was his worst mistake in office. It appears as though Clinton has zero regrets over what's-their-names.

The Freedom Center is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Therefore we do not endorse political candidates either in primary or general elections. However, as defenders of America’s social contract, we insist that the rules laid down by both parties at the outset of campaigns be respected, and that the results be decided by free elections. We will oppose any attempt to rig the system and deny voters of either party their constitutional right to elect candidates of their choice.
