So do I. And Obama as well.
One woman still looking for answers about the September 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, is Pat Smith. Her son Sean Smith, a State Department information officer, was one of four Americans killed during the attack.
“I blame her,” said Smith, referring to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
“That’s her department, she’s supposed to be on top of it, and yet she claims that she knows nothing, it wasn’t told to her,” said Smith. “Who’s running the place?”
Eh, what difference does it make?
Smith traveled to Washington to attend the American Foreign Service Association’s memorial plaque ceremony at the State Department on Friday. She is staying to attend Wednesday’s House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on the events before, during and after the Benghazi attack.
Smith said she doubts the testimonies at Wednesday’s hearing will provide her with the closure she said she needs.
“I’m going to listen to them, I don’t know if they can give me answers,” said Smith. “I don’t know if they’ll be able to tell me anything.”
“I cry every night, I don’t sleep at night,” said Smith. “I need answers.”
Don’t we all. But don’t expect any from the Smartest Woman in the World.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said last week that Benghazi happened a long time ago. Eight months ago, in fact. Which begs the question, for Smith, “Why don’t they have answers by now?”
