The behavior of Congressman Adam Smith during the Benghazi congressional hearing was reprehensible. It was obvious that he was running partisan politics interference for Hillary Clinton.
The former secretary of state was AWOL during the terrorist attack in Benghazi along with President Obama, and there has been no accountability for the murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. The fact that Stevens’ repeated requests for security were denied or ignored should have been Smith’s guiding principle in asking tough questions of Clinton.
The congressman failed in his responsibility to get answers for the families of the murdered Americans, and his callousness in that regard is inexcusable. Smith sold his soul to protect Clinton and betrayed the trust of the American people.
