There’s been no shortage of stories about Hillary Clinton lately what with her “winning” the nomination and all, the operative word is in quotes because of the email scandal within the DNC, showing that the DNC itself favored her over Bernie Sanders. That aside, she’s also been in the news for a multitude of other things, namely her role in the Benghazi attacks.
Benghazi is something that Hillary cannot seem to shake and with good reason. Clinton is believed to be directly responsible for the deaths of 4 Americans in Benghazi during a terrorist attack on the US embassy. During her Fox News Sunday interview with Chris Wallace, she once again blames the video for the Benghazi attacks.
One of the heroes of that day, John “Tig” Tiegen, is speaking out on Hillary’s comments and used two words that completely destroy her argument. The words? “Directly responsible.” Clinton was in direct control of the situation. And what happened was inexcusable.
John “Tig” Tiegen, one of the American heroes who fought in Benghazi the night of the attack, told Brian Kilmeade on “Fox and Friends” today that he’s not surprised by Clinton’s comments.
“She seems to misspeak and be delusional about a lot of things,” Tiegen said, pointing to her infamous “sniper fire” in Bosnia gaffe.
Tiegen said that Clinton was “directly responsible” for the deaths of the Americans at Benghazi, because it was her job as secretary of state to make sure the compound was properly secured.
“Its your job to make sure all your employees are taken care of,” Tiegen said. “You can’t just sit behind a wall. But at least make sure that when you are behind a wall, you’re adequately protected.”
We’re obviously with Tig on this one. He is absolutely right. She was the Secretary of State and should have made sure the Americans on foreign soil were properly protected. She did not. This wasn’t because of some YouTube video, it was a terror attack and she could have saved lives, but she decided not to act.
It’s in Clinton’s nature to lie and she will continue to do so for the rest of her life about this one. We, however, know the real truth. Remember – when Hillary lied, Americans died.
