'They Were Abandoned and Just Left to Die There': Mother of Benghazi Victim Speaks Out
On last night’s “Justice,” Judge Jeanine Pirro was joined by Pat Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, who was one of four Americans killed in the deadly 2012 terror attack in Benghazi, Libya.
Smith reacted to viewing "13 Hours at Benghazi," a Fox News Reporting special that uncovers the smoking gun of Benghazi, particularly first-hand accounts of the attack from U.S. security operatives that revealed her son and Ambassador Christopher Stevens' lives might have been saved if there had not been a stand down order given.
Of those revealing first-hand accounts in the "13 Hours at Benghazi" special, Smith said, “I absolutely believe them. Who else am I supposed to believe? The people who didn’t tell me anything, like the State Department? I kept begging them to tell me what happened. They wouldn’t tell me. So now, I get the information that I’ve been waiting for, that I’ve needed. I’ve got to finish processing this, so I can go on with my life."
"Right now, my son is dead, and three other guys are dead, and I just think of them as my sons, and my sons are all dead now. They were abandoned and just left to die there.”
Smith said she doesn't believe the government's statement that there was no stand down order given from them. She added that politicians will continue lying to cover up a highly politicized issue.
"I love my country. I love my country desperately. But we’ve got some rotten people in there running it, rotten people making decisions. And I don’t like that," Smith said.
"I love my country. I do not like the politicians, and I want them out. They killed my kid, and they killed the other three guys, and they’re going to keep on doing it as long as we keep them in there. They make rotten decisions.”
