Hillary blatantly lies about Libya, says nobody died despite four Americans losing their lives in Benghazi.
Hillary Clinton said on 3/14 during a Democratic town hall that the United States “didn’t lose a single person” in Libya as she defended interventionism and regime change to MSNBC’s Chris Matthews.
“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 said.
While she may have been referring specifically to the overthrow of Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi in 2011 – her comments were clearly ill-advised given the 2012 attacks in Benghazi which saw four Americans, including Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, lose their lives as a result of a terrorist attack.
Evidence suggests that Clinton gave the military stand-down orders for reasons that have yet to be revealed.
“Now, is Libya perfect? It isn’t. But did they have two elections that were free and fair where they voted for moderates. Yes, they did. So you know, changing from a dictator who has hollowed out your country to something resembling a functioning state and even hopefully more of a democratic one doesn’t happen overnight. And we’ve got to continue to support the Libyan people, to give them a chance, because otherwise you see what has happened in Syria, with the consequences of millions of people flooding out of Syria, with more than 250,000 people killed, with terrorist groups like ISIS taking up almost — huge blocks of territory, as big as some of the states in that area.” Source
The former secretary of state failed to mention that groups affiliated with radical Islamic terrorists have grown exponentially in Libyan territory following the overthrow of Qaddafi. Military officials believe that ISIL now boasts 6,500 fighters along Libya’s Mediterranean coastline.
