Sean Smith worked as a computer specialist for the U.S. State Department. He was assigned to the U.S. Embassy in Libya and found himself stationed at the make-shift consulate in Benghazi. On September 11, 2012 Sean was killed when the compound was overrun by Muslim terrorists along with U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.
The first reports out of Libya blamed the slaughter on a spontaneous protest by local Muslims over a garage produced video that insulted Mohammad. While the Obama White House and State Department clung to the video protest story for two weeks after the attack, virtually everyone else in the world knew within days of the attack that it was a planned terrorist attack and had nothing to do with a protest.
On September 14, 2012 President Obama spoke at a ceremony to welcome home the remains of the four victims. At that ceremony, Pat Smith, mother of Sean, had a chance to speak with Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. They all promised to tell her the truth about what happened to her son and how he died. She even cried on Obama’s shoulder as everyone kept telling her to trust them and they would tell her as soon as they knew anything.
A month later, Pat Smith was still waiting to hear what happened to her son. No one from the Obama administration has given her the slightest hint of how her son died. She feels betrayed by Obama, Panetta, Biden and Clinton. They all promised to tell her and none of them have kept their promise. Pat feels that they were merely placating her out of duty and really could care less about her and how she feels.
A year later, Pat Smith and Charles Wood, whose son Navy SEAL Tyrone Wood was also killed at Benghazi testified before Congress. Incidentally, when they appeared before Congress to testify, all of the Democrats present got up and left the room because they didn’t want to hear the truth. Smith and Wood testified that they have been lied to by Obama and Clinton. Smith told the congressional committee:
“I believe that Obama murdered my son. I firmly believe this.”
And Charles Woods echoed those sentiments saying:
“I’m a retired attorney, and I know that these actions legally do not constitute murder. But in my mind the people in the White House, all of them who have authority to send in reinforcements to prevent what they knew was going to be the death of my son, are guilty of murdering my son.”
During last week’s Republican debate, Sen. Marco Rubio made comments about how Hillary Clinton told the public that the Benghazi attack was caused by outrage over a anti-Muslim video but told those close to her a completely different story, based on newly released emails. The liberal media blasted Rubio for not telling the truth.
Patricia Smith supports what Rubio said. On Monday she told Stuart Varney:
“Hillary told me that it was the video that caused the attack. She told me that’s what it was, and if it’s any different, she would get back to me and let me know. And she has not.”
It’s been three years since Clinton lied to Smith and as many times as Smith has spoken publicly about how Hillary lied to her, you would think that she would have contacted Smith to set things right but she hasn’t. Smith still has never heard back from Hillary.
When asked about Clinton’s testimony before Congress, Smith said:
“She lied. She absolutely lied.”
“I’m doing everything I know how to do. I wish there was more that I could do. Everyone believes this woman.”

A month ago, Hillary’s numbers in the polls were dropping, but in the past week they’ve begun to climb once again. It appears that she will likely be the Democratic candidate for president. Whoever the GOP candidate will be, he or she needs to take Pat Smith with them on the campaign trail and let her tell the American people about how Hillary lied to her about her son and has continued to lie about it to Congress and the American people. America needs to know just how evil and dishonest Hillary Clinton really is. They need to see just how uncaring she is about those who died serving their country like Smith’s son and realize that she’ll treat the rest of us the very same way.
