Democrats in the liberal media attacked Patricia Smith, the
grieving mother of the Benghazi victim, after she made her powerful speech at
the Republican National Convention.

For an example of the disgraceful attack on Patricia
Smith, see the article: “A tale of two grieving parents” by Steve Benen posted
on the MSNBC website.
Even more egregious, Hillary Clinton called Smith a liar during a Democratic Party debate on March 9, 2016, then double down on that disgusting attack during an
interview on July 31, 2016 on FOX News.
Articles about the attacks on Smith by the
liberal media and Clinton are shown below.
Further below is an article by Allen West which
demonstrates that Khizr Khan’s speech during the Democratic Party Convention assailing Donald Trump was unfair and unjustified, since Trump had nothing to do with the death of Khan's son in Iraq and had never said one word about Khan's son prior to the Democratic Party's Convention.
Hillary Called Benghazi Mom a Liar, But Media Freak Out
over Trump on Muslim Parents

Donald Trump is embroiled in another media controversy,
this time over his reaction when asked about the emotional speech at the
Democratic National Convention by the bereaved parents of Capt. Humayun Khan,
an immigrant soldier who died in Iraq in 2004.
As noted on Breitbart News, Kahn’s speech was a powerful
rebuke, though factually incorrect: the Constitution does not bar religious
tests for immigrants, for example.
Now the media has dutifully weaponized the speech to
Watch Hillary Clinton Call The Mother Of A Benghazi
Victim A Liar “

'I can't imagine the grief she has about losing her son.
But she's wrong. She's absolutely wrong.'
During Wednesday night’s democratic debate, Hillary
Clinton said the mother of a Benghazi victim lied.
Patricia Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, one of the four
Americans who were killed by terrorists in an attack on the U.S. consulate in
Benghazi during Clinton’s tenure, said in a CNN interview last October that
Clinton lied to her about the circumstances surrounding her son’s death.
Instead of stating that her son’s death had been caused
by an act of terrorism, Clinton blamed an inflammatory video that had been
circulating online in the weeks leading up to the attack — a narrative she knew
at the time to be false.
When asked about this on Wednesday, Clinton pushed back
at Smith’s claim, saying the mother of the Benghazi victim was “absolutely
“I can’t imagine the grief she has about losing her son,”
Clinton said. “But she’s wrong. She’s absolutely wrong!”
“I and everybody in the [Obama] administration, all the
people she named — the president, the vice president, Susan Rice — we were
scrambling to get information that was changing literally by the hour,” she
said. “When we had information, we made it public, but then sometimes we had to
go back and say we had new information that contradicts it.”
During Clinton’s tenure as secretary of State, a U.S.
consulate in Benghazi was attacked on Sept. 11, 2012. In the aftermath of the
attack, Clinton and other members of the Obama administration blamed the attack
on an inflammatory video that had been circulating at the time.
At the casket ceremony for the Benghazi victims, Clinton
repeated this line of rhetoric, saying:
has been a difficult week for the State Department and for our country. We’ve
seen the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi that took the lives of those
brave men. We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an
awful internet video that we had nothing to do with. It is hard for the
American people to make sense of that because it is senseless, and it is totally
But in an email she sent to her daughter Chelsea just hours
after the attack, Hillary Clinton said the terrorist attack had been carried
out by an “Al Queda-like group,” implying she knew it had been premeditated
As The Federalist reported in October, Hillary’s own e-mail correspondence
shows that from day one Clinton had two different stories surrounding the cause
of the Benghazi attack. Under her leadership, the State Department pushed out a
false, and politically advantageous, narrative to the American people blaming
an Internet video, while privately acknowledging that the events in Benghazi
were purely motivated by organized Islamic terrorism.
A PERSONAL message for the Muslim father whose son was
killed in Iraq
By Allen West
"Mr. Khan, I grieve for the loss of
your son. However, I grieve even more that you used his sacrifice and loss as
nothing more than a politicized stunt. May God forgive you for it."
Everyone’s talking about the speech delivered by Mr.
Khizr Khan, accompanied by his wife Ghazala at the DNC that focused on the loss
of his son, U.S. Army Captain Humayan Khan.
It appears things have devolved into such a level of
immaturity relating to the speech that I believe there’s a need for a clear
analysis of Mr. Khan’s address, and what he should have presented.
First, let me offer my condolences to the Khan family for
their sacrifice, as they are now an American Gold Star Family. Their son and I
share an unbreakable bond. We both served our nation and, along with three
other generations in my family, took the oath to support and defend our
Constitution and served in combat zones.
Yes sir, Mr. Khan, I’ve read our Constitution and firmly
recognize the preeminent responsibility of our federal government is to
“provide for the common defense.” I also comprehend the relationship between
the three branches of government…you know separation of powers, checks and
balances, coequal branches of government.
I would offer a simple recommendation to Mr. Khan.
Perhaps you should have asked President Barack Obama if he had read the
Constitution — undoubtedly you would agree we have witnessed a few
unconstitutional actions from him.
And while you were at it, Mr. Khan, perhaps you could
have asked Hillary Clinton about handling classified information — since I’m
quite sure your son, Captain Khan, had at a minimum a secret clearance.
I don’t think your son would have been able to, well,
have his “careless” mishandling of classified materials and information simply
excused. Perhaps Mr. Khan, you could have addressed the necessity for high
standards of honor, integrity, and character in a commander in chief.
Also, I found it interesting Mr. Khan, that you and your
wife, an American Gold Star family, would take the stage to support a sitting
president and one desiring to be president, who had abandoned Americans in a
combat zone and lied about it.
I tend to believe that if alive, your son would consider
that type of behavior abhorrent and deplorable. Or perhaps, as it seems, your
speech was politically driven, and not based on principle? After all, you did
take the stage before a crowd that disrespected a Medal of Honor recipient…is
that cool with you?
You see, I understand, Mr. Khan, that your son and your
family are Muslim and Muslims do indeed serve in our armed forces. But in the
military I know, we do not celebrate that which divides, but rather that which
unites. And what is it that unites us as Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and
Marines? It is service above self, commitment to something greater than the
individual, and sacrifice for our country and comrades in arms.
Now, let’s be honest Mr. Khan, those of us with knowledge
could just as easily bring attention to SGT Hasan Karim Akbar and Major Nidal
Hasan, both Muslims serving in the U.S. Army. Just as you celebrated your
Muslim son’s sacrifice, there are others who could give testimony to their loss
due to those Muslim soldiers — and I use lower case reference to them
(soldiers) because they dishonored the oath and were traitors to our Code of
Honor. Your son was not, but that had nothing to do with him being a Muslim: he
was an American Soldier.
