Hillary Clinton: 'We Didn't Lose a Single Person' in Libya
Hillary Clinton raised some eyebrows last night at a town hall forum when she stated that "we didn't lose a single person" in Libya.
Chris Matthews of MSNBC had asked the Democratic frontrunner about the decision while she was secretary of state to help topple the Qaddafi regime.
"Libya was a different kind of calculation and we didn't lose a single person. ... We didn’t have a problem in supporting our European and Arab allies in working with NATO," she said, adding that Libya "isn't perfect" but is also not experiencing the bloodshed of Syria.
She added that Libya has since held two elections that were free and fair in which moderates were elected.
Clinton did not mention the four Americans who were killed in the Sept. 11, 2012 terror attack in Benghazi: Ambassador Chris Stevens, State Department diplomat Sean Smith, and CIA contractors Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.
At a debate last week, Clinton went after the mother of one of the victims, claiming she is "absolutely wrong" to accuse her of lying about what happened in Benghazi.
Earlier on Monday, Clinton took criticism for another apparent gaffe while talking about clean energy, saying "we're going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business."
