On Monday night, Democrat front-runner Hillary Clinton attended a town hall-style meeting on MSNBC, which was hosted by Chris Matthews. During the question and answer event, she made an utterly jaw-dropping claim about Libya that rightfully has people outraged.
Clinton spent a portion of her time defending the decisions she and Barack Obama made regarding the now-chaotic nation, which became destabilized a result of the ouster of former dictator Moammar Gaddafi. At one point, she even made the ridiculous claim that America “didn’t lose a single person” in the country, even though four Americans were killed on September 11, 2012, when terrorists rushed a U.S. consulate.
Check it out:
“Is Libya perfect? It isn’t,” Clinton explained. “But did they have two elections that were fair where they voted for moderates? Yes they did. Changing from a dictator that has hollowed out your country to something resembling a functioning state and even hopefully more of a democratic one doesn’t happen overnight.”
Clinton has hailed Libya as one of her greatest foreign policy achievements, even though the Islamic State (ISIS) has gained a foothold in the country, and neighboring nations have deteriorated in the wake of the vacuum formed by removing its leader. Although Clinton went on to advocate for continuing to support the people of Libya before dropping a whopper of a line.
“You see what’s happening in Syria with the consequence of millions of people flooding out of Syria, with more than 250,000 people killed, with terrorist groups like ISIS taking up a huge swath of territory as big as some of the states in that area,” Clinton said.
“So yes, Libya was a different kind of calculation and we didn’t lose a single person,” Clinton added.
Umm, what? The families of Ambassador Chris Stevens, State Department information officer Sean Smith and former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty would strongly disagree with that assertion, Mrs. Clinton.
Here’s some reactions to that ridiculous claim:
@politico Chris Stevens and the 3 security agents will be happy to hear the good news that they are in fact still alive…

Exactly. The last tweet pretty much defines Clinton and how she views the American people.
