Jake Tapper of CNN interviewed Pat Smith. She is the mother of Sean Smith, who was a State Department officer killed in Benghazi on September 11, 2012.
I can’t say that I’m the least bit surprised that Mrs. Smith is not all that sanguine about the dilatory dissemination of information coming from the Administration that answers the questions we’ve all been asking about the attack on the U.S. Embassy. The attack that resulted in 4 dead, murdered Americans, including the first Ambassador to be killed in 30 years.
It’s simply a cover up, and it’s disgraceful. To call it anything else is mendacious. And Mrs. Smith knows who to blame: Hillary Clinton (at around 2:16 in the clip).

HILLARY CLINTON, FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE: With all due respect, the fact is, we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.
SMITH: Well, that’s what I want to know. Why did it happen? And she is in charge. Why couldn’t she do something about it? I blame her.
TAPPER: You blame Secretary of State Clinton.
SMITH: Because that’s her department. She is supposed to be on top of it. Yet she claims she knows nothing. It wasn’t told to her. Well, who is running the place?
She’s right. You know it. I know it. Hillary knows it. The Dem operatives and the whacked out left knows it. My guess is that if Mrs. Smith gets more traction and tomorrow doesn’t go well for Hill, dismissive derision will flow Mrs. Smith’s way. Just a guess.
