Father of Slain SEAL: ‘I Knew’ Clinton Was Lying When She Told Me It Was About the Video


The father of one of the ex-Navy SEALS killed during the 9/11 attacks in Benghazi says yesterday’s House Oversight Committee hearing offered “encouragement.” 

“There are good men on both sides who are trying to find out exactly what the facts were so this will not happen again,” Charles Woods told Sean Hannity last night, and said he went up to the committee’s ranking member Elijah Cummings (D., Md.) and shook his hand to thank him for his “spirit of cooperation.”

Woods, whose son Tyrone died in the attacks, also urged political leaders to be more truthful about the issue, comparing that with what he’d heard from former secretary of state Hillary Clinton. “When I was approached by Hillary Clinton at the coming-home ceremony of the bodies at Andrews Air Force Base, and she said, ‘We’re going to go out and we’re going to prosecute that person that made the video,’ I knew that she wasn’t telling the truth, and I think the whole world knows that now,” he explained. “She’s smarter than I am, she probably knew that well.”
