Father of Fallen SEAL: Hillary Told Me They’d Get That Filmmaker Good

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:44 pm



Hillary Clinton told the father of a Navy SEAL killed in Banghazi that the United States was going to find the person responsible and make sure he was prosecuted.

The “person responsible” in her mind, of course, was the guy who made that Mohammed YouTube video:

The Hillary quote is in the second clip. The quote where Joe Biden asks the dad if his son always had “balls the size of cue balls” is in the first.

I agree with Allahpundit:

What I found significant about this wasn’t the “movie protest” versus “preplanned attack” element, it was the fact that Hillary’s promise of vengeance to the father of a fallen SEAL wasn’t that we’d get the jihadis who killed him but that we’d punish the filmmaker. That’s perverse, but in keeping with the fact that she decided to run ads on Pakistani TV apologizing for the film while Islamist cretins menaced American diplomats across the region. Even if you give her the benefit of the doubt and assume that she had no intention of prosecuting the filmmaker but was merely telling Woods something she thought would console him, why on earth would she zero in on the filmmaker as the target of blame instead of the degenerates who actually shot his son? She and O need to answer. Let’s see how much they really value free speech. Simple question for both: Is Woods a liar or not?

Will anyone ask that question? Big Media, a ball the size of a cue ball is in your court.
