In 2012, the US embassy was attacked. For 13 hours, the men and women pleaded for assistance as the embassy was overrun. During the attack, four Americans died in the process.
To Hillary Clinton and her staffers, this doesn’t seem to register as a travesty. She actually is pretty callous what she says about them in an email.
The email was an exchange where Mandy Grumwald was preparing Clinton to speak before the House Select Committee.
In trying to drum up some moral outrage, the emails indicate that finding numbers and statistics is more important than recognizing that Americans were murdered.
You’ll find how disgusting their thought process is below:
As the Clinton campaign prepared to properly calibrate the Democratic presidential candidate’s opening remarks to the House Select Committee on Benghazi, a campaign consultant found it “odd” to talk about “four guys” in Clinton’s opening remarks, according an email revealed Thursday by WikiLeaks.
That revelation enraged Republican vice presidential candidate MIke Pence,.
“Her staff was preparing her for testimony, an opening statement before the Select Committee on Benghazi,” Pence said Friday.
“One of them actually mentioned in the email that she shouldn’t focus too much on the ‘four guys who were killed.’ Those were not four guys. Those were four American heroes,” he added.
Clinton was called before the House Select Committee on Benghazi to discuss the events of the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, in which four Americans were killed. Clinton was secretary of state at the time of the attacks.
The October 2015 email included a comment from political consultant Mandy Grunwald about the proposed remarks.
“Seems odd to put the tributes to the four guys into this statement, since it is mostly the repackaged testimony. We can’t overdo the tributes to them and I think they should be done in person,” she wrote.
As noted elsewhere in the email chain, the point of Clinton’s testimony was to paint the deaths at Benghazi as part of a larger narrative.
“Can we get some more numbers into the early ‘diplomacy is dangerous’ discussion?” he wrote.
The email makes it clear the statement was drafted as a public relations exercise.
Grunwald had a different slant.
“I don’t mind the ‘backs of dead Americans’ because we need a bit of moral outrage. I suppose we can dial the language back, but the sense of outrage should remain.”
Hillary Clinton has been raked over the coals for the Benghazi debacle. It seems the general consensus for her and those that support her are Americans are peasants and are expendable.
That’s certainly how it comes across when you are referencing four dead war heroes as “guys”.
And that’s not all… If you missed it, it wasn’t even something that they wanted to pay tribute to.
These emails reveal the true character of someone who claims to love America, but is willing to use individual patriots as cannon fodder when it serves her purposes.
What do you think? Is it ok to refer to the four Americans just as “guys”? Or are they heroes? Let us know in the comments below.
