Huh? Clinton Makes Ridiculous Claim About Benghazi

Hillary Clinton falsely claimed Monday night that no Americans died in Libya while she was secretary of state, Fox News reported.

While explaining to voters at an MSNBC-sponsored “town hall” in Illinois why the United States overthrew Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, the Democratic presidential candidate said: “Now, is Libya perfect? It isn’t. … 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.”

Clinton made no direct reference to the attacks on U.S. diplomatic and CIA facilities in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012. The U.S. ambassador to the Northern African country and three other Americans were killed.

Fox News noted that throughout her presidential campaign, Clinton has been under fire for her actions before and during the incident. Congressional Republicans have conducted multiple investigations, examining conflicting emails she wrote the night of the attacks. Last year, Clinton testified for 11 hours before the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

On another issue, the Clinton campaign issued a statement Monday claiming she is “devoted” to the coal industry. During Sunday night’s CNN town hall event, the candidate declared that “clean, renewable energy” will “put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.”
