Father of Benghazi Victim: Hillary Lied to Me and the American Public
The father of one of the men who died in the Benghazi terror attack is disputing Hillary Clinton's claim that she never told the family members of the Benghazi victims that the 2012 attack was sparked by an anti-Muslim video.
Charles Woods, who son Tyrone Woods gave his life defending his fellow Americans, joined Bill Hemmer on "America's Newsroom" today.
Woods said that he spoke to Clinton following a ceremony at Andrews Air Force Base transferring the remains of his son and the three other victims, just days after the attack.
Woods said that the then-secretary of state directly told him that the attack was a response to a video.
Woods produced a notebook that he kept at the time, which he says reveals what Clinton said in that conversation "verbatim."
"I gave Hillary a hug and shook her hand," Woods read from his notebook. "And she said, 'We are going to have the filmmaker arrested who was responsible for the death of my son.'"
Woods said that he wrote those words down shortly after Clinton spoke them.
"Now that has nothing to do with my memory. This is just a contemporaneous writing."
Woods said that Clinton also "lied to the American public" a short time after that conversation when she spoke during the casket ceremony and again blamed the violence on the video.
"She said basically the same thing in private to the families that were grieving. And then a half-hour later, she said basically the same thing, as far as causation, to the American public," Woods said.
"She stood in front of my son's casket and blamed the rage directed at American embassies upon the video that she said we had no part of."
