Mother of slain State Dept. officer in Benghazi: Hillary Clinton ‘tells lies,’ treated me like dirt

Sean Smith was a State Department official who was one of four Americans killed in a terrorist attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya in 2012. Over three years later, his mother is still searching for answers.

Patricia Smith told RT’s Lindsay France that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton promised to tell her what happened to her son Sean, but reneged on that vow. She watched Thursday’s marathon hearing in which Clinton finally testified before the House Select Committee on Benghazi and says that the Democratic presidential hopeful lied to Congress about what happened that fateful September 11.
“If we’d had a more reliable security force in large enough numbers, well-armed and well-focused on protecting the compound,” Clinton told the 12-member panel on Thursday, “I think if the militia that had been engaged by both the CIA and the State Department had been more reliable…”
“I made a long list, Congressman, about anything that anybody could have done,” she said.
Lindsay France: In light of what she just said, and in light of what you know personally about the request for assistance and for security, what’s your reaction to that soundbite? 
Patricia Smith: Well, there was people available. They were told to stand down! What’s the matter with her? She knows that!
