The parents of two of the four Americans who died in the Benghazi attack in 2012 filed a lawsuit Monday against Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, alleging her “reckless handling” of classified information contributed to their deaths.

The case was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia by Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch USA on behalf of Patricia Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, and Charles Woods, the father of Tyrone Woods, for allegedly wrongfully causing the death of their sons as well as for defamation and intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

The lawsuit suggests that Clinton’s use of a private email server contributed to the deaths of Smith and Woods, adding that terrorists were able to “obtain the whereabouts of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and thus the U.S. State Department and covert and other government operations in Benghazi, Libya and subsequently orchestrate, plan, and execute the now infamous September 11, 2012 attack.”

“Having used a secret private email server that we now know was used to communicate with Ambassador Christopher Stevens with confidential and classified government information, and which we also now know was likely hacked by hostile adversaries such as Iran, Russia, China and North Korea aligning with terrorist groups, it is clear that Hillary Clinton allegedly negligently and recklessly gave up the classified location of the plaintiffs’ sons, resulting in a deadly terrorist attack that took their lives,” Klayman said in a statement announcing the suit.

In addition to the wrongful death and negligence charges named in the suit, the parents also claim that Clinton defamed them in statements to the media, according to court documents.

“During her campaign for President, Defendant Clinton has negligently, recklessly, and/or maliciously defamed Plaintiffs by either directly calling them liars, or by strongly implying that they are liars, in order to protect and enhance her public image and intimidate and emotionally harm and silence them to not speak up about the Benghazi attack on at least four separate occasions,” Klayman wrote in his complaint.

Patricia Smith has previously spoken out against Clinton, most recently at the Republican National Convention in July.

Clinton’s campaign pushed back Tuesday on the latest allegations.

“While no one can imagine the pain of the families of the brave Americans we lost at Benghazi, there have been nine different investigations into this attack and none found any evidence whatsoever of any wrongdoing on the part of Hillary Clinton,” spokesman Nick Merrill said in a statement.

In an interview last week on “Fox News Sunday,” Clinton denied telling family members of those killed that the attack was sparked by an anti-Islam video, and was not terrorism.

She instead suggested the family members misunderstood her because they were overwhelmed by grief.

“I understand the grief and the incredible sense of loss that can motivate that,” Clinton said. “As other members of families who’ve lost loved ones have said, that’s not what they heard. I don’t hold any ill feeling for someone who, in that moment, may not fully recall everything that was or wasn’t said.”

Obama’s First Political Prisoner Begins One-Year Prison Sentence

By Daniel Greenfield at Front Page:

“When fascism comes to America, it will come wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross,” Sinclair Lewis wrote in, “It Can’t Happen Here.” But as it turns out, fascism came to America wearing an Obama 2012 photo, filtered through Instagram, and carrying a Koran.

Charles Woods, the father of the murdered SEAL left to die by Obama in Benghazi, reported that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told him, that they were going to “arrest and prosecute” the man behind the Mohammed movie.

Mission accomplished.

Mark Basseley Youssef may be a scoundrel and a liar. His movie may be hideous and false. He may have violated his probation. But there are probation violators all over the country today, roaming free after getting a slap on the wrist for their probation violation. The probation violation is a pretext. Youssef’s imprisonment is for violating Sharia blasphemy laws. Obama is trying to appease the Muslims who rioted and killed over the video, and to do what he can against the freedom of speech now, until such time as he can get “hate speech” laws in place that will enable him to finish the job.

Youssef had one of the top Federal prosecutors in California sicced on him and the same media maggots who threw a hysterical fit when Ari Fleischer merely told Bill Maher to shut up, have nothing to say. Oh pardon me, they do have something to say. They assure us that this political prosecution has nothing to do with the movie.

None of the violations had to do with the content of “Innocence of Muslims,” a film that depicts Mohammad as a religious fraud, pedophile and womanizer.

That’s according to the AP. But according to the Prosecutor actually handling the case… .

However, Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Dugdale argued Youseff’s lies about his identity have caused harm to others, including the film’s cast and crew. The movie sparked violence in the Middle East, killing dozens.

So it’s not about the movie, except it’s about the movie. So Obama has his first political prisoner, probably not the last. Muslims get upset easily and it will take a lot of political prisoners to appease them.

Freedom of Speech? Oh it’s one of those we used to have in the old America. Like Freedom of Religion. Before the thing that couldn’t happen here… happened here.


Shortly after Youssef left the courtroom, his lawyer, Steven Seiden, came to the front steps of the courthouse and told reporters his client wanted to send a message.

“The one thing he wanted me to tell all of you is President Obama may have gotten Osama bin Laden, but he didn’t kill the ideology,” Seiden said. source
