Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton: ‘We didn’t lose a single person’ in Libya
Posted on 03/15/2016 9:52:50 AM PDT by TangledUpInBlue
In comments that are sure to draw the ire of her Republican critics, Hillary Clinton sought to contrast the war in Iraq with the intervention in Libya during her stint as secretary of state.
Ive said Iraq was a mistake, Clinton told Chris Matthews during an MSNBC town hall event on Monday night. Libya was a different kind of calculation. And we didnt lose a single person. We didnt have a problem in supporting our European and Arab allies in working with NATO.
As Politico noted, Clinton was probably referring to the U.S.-backed overthrow of Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi in 2011 and not the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks in Benghazi, where four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, were killed.
Matthews pressed Clinton on what he called the United States push for regime change in places like Iraq and Libya.
Now, is Libya perfect? It isnt, the former secretary said. But did they have two elections that were free and fair where they voted for moderates. Yes, they did.

Why this insistence on trying?
Is she delusional?
It must not be forgotten that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama left, not four, but some forty Americans to die in Benghazi. It was only through the heroism of Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, acting in contradiction of direct orders to stand down and at the cost of their own lives, that most of those forty returned home alive. Again, let it be reiterated that Obama and Clinton were comfortable condemning forty Americans to ugly death at the hands of radical Muslims and to lie about it afterwards rather than admit to what was going on in Benghazi or to their own failures. As Hugh Hewitt wrote,
“...the cries for help from the brave civilians and soldiers of Benghazi were many and urgent throughout the hours of attack. But the response was ... silence. ”
How about the Ambassador?
This... is her Dukakis in a tank moment. I don’t know if she can recover from this one.
This comment explains a lot about Hillary.
WHAAAAT??? This is a sure sign of dementia.
Well, technically she's right. Some came home in a box, but we didn't "lose them" sheesh! Stop nitpicking over her choices of words./s
worse than her saying she wants all the coal miners to lose their jobs, like she did the other day?
They were not “lost”.
They were sold to al Qaeda with 20000 MANPADs
for money to Obama and Clinton and Huma.
She’s just the absolute utter definition of a pathological liar, she really is. She’s is the kind of person who would tell you with a straight face the sky is green and won’t give a damn if you believe it or not.
This... is her Dukakis in a tank moment. I dont know if she can recover from this one.
I would agree. But then again....this is Hillary.
Yes, this is worse because of the ready image that it conjures in people’s minds.
Costing people their jobs will hurt you among those people in that particular industry, but forgetting about the lives that were lost on your watch is a whole different level of callousness.
What, were they all married?
