As you may remember, back in December, Hillary Clinton called the families of Benghazi victims Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods liars for saying she told them in the aftermath of the attack that the video “Innocence of Muslims” was to blame for what happened. The historical record, of course, proves that Hillary has been lying about how she responded to the attack for a long time, and three of the soldiers who survived the Benghazi attack, Mark “Oz” Geist, Kris “Tonto” Paronto, and John “Tig” Tiegen, are doing their best to make sure we don’t forget that. They are behind the book 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened In Benghazi, which inspired the Michael Bay movie coming out on January 15th. The three of them have been making the rounds in the media lately trying to promote both their book and the upcoming movie, and yesterday, they stopped by Hannity to for a collective interview. Unsurprisingly, they don’t believe Hillary’s version of the story.
Here’s a video of their interview:
This is the most important part (starts at about the 5:19 mark):
HANNITY: Did she lie?
PARONTO: About–Did she lie about…
HANNITY: Was she telling these three people [the Libyan President, Chelsea Clinton, and the Egyptian Prime Minister -ed.] it’s a terrorist attack and telling the American people something else? She knows what the truth is.
PARONTO: And you’ve had the family members come on. You’ve seen Pat Smith, you’ve seen Katie Quigley, you’ve seen Charles Woods, why would they lie? What reason would they have to not tell the truth?
HANNITY: We also know that she told the American people and what Obama told the American people. [To Tiegen] Do you think she lied?
TIEGEN: Well, talking with, uh, with Ty’s mom, I mean, she, you know, she watched the hearings and everything else, and then when that came out…
HANNITY: And Charles Woods?
TIEGEN: (continuing) …I talk to her quite a bit, and she said, you know, why is she saying that when she told me to my face that it was–that they were gonna get the guy who made the video.
PARONTO: The full truths just weren’t being told, and that’s why we did and why we are telling the truth right now with the movie and the book.
They also stopped by The Kelly File on Monday for a much longer interview. You can watch it at Fox News’ website, and the Daily Caller has a nice article up on the interview, including some background information.
Understandably, Democrats are not big fans of these guys. All three of them have been vocal about Hillary’s lies in the past, and that has, in turn, gotten them called liars by members of Congress because they have the courage to tell the truth.
The Left wants this whole story to go away as soon as possible because Hillary is going to be the Democrats’ nominee for President. The more people learn the truth about Benghazi, the less likely they are to support her, so we need to make sure it stays in the news. We can also help these men out by going to see their movie, buying their book, and telling others to do the same. They are firsthand testimony of what really happened on September 11, 2012.
