Skip to comments.Mother Of Slain Benghazi Officer To Sean Hannity: ‘They Want Me To Shut Up’
Posted on 04/07/2013 10:19:18 AM PDT by kristinn
On Friday, Sean Hannity brought Pat Smith, mother of the late Sean Smith, on his radio program. The 34-year-old information management officer was one of four Americans murdered in the Benghazi embassy attack on September 11, 2012.
In the chilling interview, a distraught Ms. Smith, in tears, pleaded for answers and spoke of the efforts to silence her.
Ms. Smith first relayed how her son, prior to the attack, requested additional security in advance and warned the State Department:
He did tell them, ahead of time, he typed it into his little typewriter over there, that they were going to be attacked, please they needed more security, and they were ignored. And I dont appreciate everybody going to bed and going to sleep and not taking care of the guys that they put in harms way, one of them being my son.
Smith then spoke of the intimidation she has experienced, in her quest for answers, noting she is being silenced, though Hannity clarified it is not by someone in the government:
They dont tell me much. They want me to shut up . I was told, and I really would rather not say by who, [though] I can if you need it, but I was told that Im causing a lot of problems and to shut up . I told them I will not! I will not shut up until I find out what really happened!
Hannity noted how trying to cover this story is very frustrating, with Ms. Smith wryly noting: I know, you wont find the answer. Im told its too high up.

“ . I was told, and I really would rather not say by who,”
Her kids’s dead. When do the gloves come off for her?
I heard this Friday and mentioned it on the Hannity thread.
She was rightfully outspoken. It’s a total indictment of the Obama administration.
Somebody not in government telling her to shut-up? Must be Bill Clinton.
No other conservative media host or pundit...Rush included...delves into territory around which the militant Left has erected ramparts and heavily-armed parapets to keep out all nosy investigators.
You can love him or hate him, or both....but Sean Hannity is the most fearless conservative warrior that we have....and we should give him creds for that at the least, and thank God for him at the most.
DISGUSTING what happened there. Our people were abandoned. Maybe the most shameful incident in this nations history.
Abandoning those who serve, while they are under attack, is about the worst thing anyone can do.
This is 10 times worse(morally)than Watergate.
You’re right on all points.
Yes, Hannity jabs them when no one else will.
The Embassy people.
Not just four Americans.
The Embassy staff.
Government employees do not serve the President or the Democrat party. They serve the people of The United States. The President is the head of the executive branch, but he works for the people of The United States. If there are American Citizens who are covering up something in this Ben Ghazi matter, then they dishonor all those who have served our country and they sell their honor cheaply. If Obama was covering something up for national security, then would he be leading the charge to defund the military? There is no national security issue. It’s just embarrassing to Obama and the Democrat party. Democrats are Democrats first....being an American may not even be on their list. How many Americans will they let die to protect their precious party?
Sean should have ASKED who it was who wanted her to shut up.....she said she would tell him! ASK SEAN ASK!! I want NAMES.
Is it true that there are some 30 survivors/witnesses who aren’t being brought forward to tell their story?
Where are the investigative reporters on this one?
It should be noted that be noted that Hannity offered to pay for transportation (both air and ground), which was accepted, to take the mother and a companion to ceremonies for her son and other Benghazi victims of Clinton and Obama.

What investigative reporters?
Do you really have to ask? They’re fighting to be first in line to kiss Obaba’s a**.
They were running weapons to AQIS and Iran did not like it. The mistake she made was not thinking Iran had a role to play. The old hag that was dogging zero about 3AM was wide awake at 4PM and froze.
I’m sure 60 Minutes will be calling her for an interview any minute now.....
It’s too bad journalism is basically dead in our country.
