Mother of Benghazi Victim: Obama, Biden, Clinton, Panetta Said They Would Get Back to Me, But I ‘Heard Absolutely Nothing’

Pat Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, an American dipomat killed in the 9/11 attacks in Benghazi, accused President Obama, the vice president, and two Cabinet members of not keeping promises they made to her at her son’s funeral. She said Obama, Joe Biden, then-secretary of state Hillary Clinton, and then-secretary of defense Leon Panetta all told her they would look into the circumstances of her son’s death and get back to her, but they never did.

“I heard nothing, absolutely nothing,” Smith told Bill O’Reilly last night. She said a clerk called her at one point and read her the timeline of the night’s events, which she already had. 

Smith also said Obama, Clinton, and U.N. ambassador Susan Rice blamed the YouTube video for the attacks when she spoke with them at the coming-home ceremony of the bodies. “They all told me the reason that this happened was because of the video,” Smith said. “Nose-to-nose, they were hugging me.”
