Again: Hillary Claims Not a Single American Was Lost in Libya

Posted: Sep 08, 2016 3:45 PM

By now you know former Secretary of State and Democrat presidential nominee HIllary Clinton participated in NBC's Commander-in-Chief forum Wednesday night, where she was put on the defense a number of times as questions about her private email server refuse to go away. 

During an exchange, Clinton repeated an absurd statement she's made before: We did not lose a single American in Libya.

"When Gadhafi was threatening to massacre his population, I put together a coalition that included NATO, included the Arab League, and we were able to save lives. We did not lose a single American in that action,” Clinton said. 

The terror vacuum created by her decision to take out Gadhafi led directly to the 9/11/2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. During that attack (which I'm sure Clinton would like to erase from the conversation) four Americans,  U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith and Navy SEALs Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty, were killed. 

As mentioned, this isn't the first time Clinton has made this claim. She did the same earlier this year during a CNN town hall.
