Clinton seemed at ease despite the subject matter until Stephanopoulos began to show video clips of family members of the four Americans who were killed on September 11, 2012, in Benghazi.
She remained expressionless and silent as she watched the videos. First came Sean Smith's mother:
"Hillary is absolutely lying . . .She said it was because of the video.
Her daughter was able to be told differently, that it was not the video. It her daughter could be told, why can't I?"
Smith's Uncle, Michael Ingmire, agreed:
"The difference in what Hillary told her family and what she told the victims’ families about the cause of the attack is consistent to her career as a serial liar. Without a doubt, you know, Mrs. Clinton really has a problem embracing the truth.”
Then Glen Doherty's sister spoke up:
"When I think back now to that day and what she knew, it shows me a lot about her character that she would choose in that moment to basically perpetuate what she knew was untrue.”
And what Tyrone Woods' father had to add was truly heartbreaking:
"Secretary Clinton hugged me and shook my hand.
Then she said we are going to have the filmmaker arrested who was responsible for the death of my son . . . She said ‘the filmmaker who was responsible for the death of your son.’ ”
Secretary Clinton's answer, when asked directly by Stephanopoulos if she had lied to the families of the victims, was an emotionless “No.”
