No matter how much everyone keeps trying to sweep “the whole Benghazi thing” under the rug, there are still those who continue to hurt from the events of Sep. 11, 2012. In fact, these people likely are hurting just as badly, if not more so (given the preventable nature of the attack), as the now infamous Khizr Khan. The parents of Tyrone Woods and Sean Smith have filed a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton for wrongful death and defamation.
Apparently, they aren’t satisfied that Clinton has continued to come away unscathed after lying to them about the origin of the attack that killed their children at their sons’ memorials:
“Defendant Clinton made false and defamatory statements negligently, recklessly, purposefully, and/or intentionally with actual malice…by stating that Plaintiffs were lying about Clinton having told them that the Benghazi attack was caused by an anti-Muslim YouTube video.”
Charles Woods, father of Tyrone Woods, and Patricia Smith, mother to Sean Smith, have also contended that correspondence on Clinton’s infamous private email server was compromised, and potentially led to the demise of the four men in Libya. Per the lawsuit:
It is highly probable, given Defendant Clinton’s history of reckless handling of classified information, that Defendant Clinton, as Secretary of State, sent and received information about Ambassador Christopher Stevens and thus the U.S. Department of State activities and covert operations that the deceased were a part of in Benghazi, Libya. This information was compromised from the second that it left Defendant Clinton’s private email server and easily found its way to foreign powers including, but not limited to, Russia, Iran, China, and North Korea.
Although there has yet to be a proven, definitive link between Clinton’s emails and a specific terror event, the lawsuit alleges that it was indeed highly probable. Such an accusation makes the “October surprise” Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has promised us all the more tantalizing. Is it possible Assange will reveal something as damning as proof that the Benghazi attack was planned with help from Clinton’s leaky emails?
Perhaps this lawsuit will be acknowledged by the mainstream media to the extent that Khan’s speech at the DNC was. Truth is, it probably will be dismissed by the pundits as a desperate political move—even scoffed at. These families are even targeting the actual individual who was involved in the decision-making process that led to their sons’ deaths. But it won’t gain the traction and light the kind of fire that Khan’s speech did. No, pursuing justice through the judicial system just isn’t as flashy as being paraded around at one of the two-party system’s conventions. But you know what? Maybe, just maybe, the families of Tyrone Woods and Patricia Smith weren’t trying to be flashy over such a serious matter.
