Hillary: “We Didn’t Lose A Single Person In Libya”

I guess Hillary Clinton forgot to take her Prevagen

(Fox News) Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton committed her second gaffe in as many days on the campaign trail Monday night, claiming that the U.S. “didn’t lose a single person” in Libya during her time as secretary of state.

Clinton made the comment defending her push for regime change in the war-torn North African nation at an Illinois town hall hosted by MSNBC.

“Now, is Libya perfect? It isn’t,” Clinton said. After contrasting her approach toward Libya with the ongoing bloodshed in Syria’s civil war, Clinton said “Libya was a different kind of calculation and we didn’t lose a single person … We didn’t have a problem in supporting our European and Arab allies in working with NATO.”

Clinton made no mention of the Sept. 11, 2012 terror attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans: U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, information officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.

True, the U.S. did not lose any personnel during the air war to depose Muammar Gaddafi, or however you spell his name. Yet, the war raged on once we were done with the air campaign, and, Hillary, as Secretary of State, bares direct responsibility for the loss of those four Americans thanks to her policies and lax attention. Every other diplomatic mission had pulled out of the Benghazi area, due to the escalating violence. The British pulled out after multiple attacks and assassination attempts. Yet, Hillary’s State Dept refused to provide all the extra security Ambassador Chris Stevens was begging for.

Let’s not forget that during the last Democratic debate, Hillary called Sean Smith’s mother a liar. Now she forgets those murdered by radical Muslims in what was certainly a pre-planned attack

This should be a Republican campaign commercial once we get through the primaries.
