Parents of two of the Americans killed in Benghazi, Libya, last year testified today before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Before these parents testified, however, most of the Democrats on the committee had left the room, refusing to even listen to these grieving parents. Only two Democratic members remained in the room.

Patricia Smith, mother of slain U.S. Foreign Service information officer Sean Smith, testified that she met with President Obama, Vice President Biden, and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton the day the four Americans’ bodies were returned to American soil. Smith says that the three and other senior administration officials lied to her about the cause of the attack.

“I was told a few things,” Smith told the remaining members of the committee, “and they were all lies. Obama, and Hillary, and Panetta, and Biden, and Susan [Rice] all came up to me at the casket ceremony. Every one of them came up to, gave me a big hug. And I asked them ‘What happened? Please tell me.’ And every one of them says, ‘It was the video.’ And we all know that it wasn’t the video. Even at at time they knew it wasn’t the video. So they all lied to me.”

Smith also said that all of the officials said that they would “check up” on what happened and get back to her. To date, she has heard from none of them.

“I don’t count,” Smith said, “the people of America don’t count. The only thing that counts is their own selves, and their own jobs.”

Charles Woods, father of slain Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, also testified. In his soft-spoken voice, Woods also leveled grave criticisms at the Obama administration.

“It’s been over a year since four brave Americans were tragically killed in Benghazi,” Woods said. “And after one year we know very few answers. We’ve been asking for the last year. We don’t know much more than we did a year ago.

“Two of my heroes while growing up were John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King,” Woods said. “Rev. King made the statement, that ‘Justice delayed is justice denied.’ It’s been over a year. We have no justice. We have very few truthful answers that have been provided.”

Hypocrite politicians are all about "serving the people" when the TV cameras are on and there are political points to be made. Otherwise, eff 'em.

The Embassy would not have been attacked if it had not held a large amount of missiles and weapons from Gadafi's Armoury.

Anyone who considers voting for these despicable pigs is not better themselves.

Just like the murderous Benghazi event and the subsequent lies spewed by radical political thugs in high offices to cover it up, the unconscionable actions and total disrespect displayed toward Patricia Smith and Charles Woods by the fifteen elected vermin should never, ever be forgotten.

Being a Dem rep is such hard work. They simply couldn't handle the emotional trauma of reliving details of an attack that didn't have to happen, thanks to Dear Leader.

personally, I wouldn't sit the same table w/ any of these vile commies. whenever I hear of hardships that will certainly befall these vermin, I will say a prayer of thanks, as David of old did when his enemies were vanquished.

this is also how the family of Brian Terry was treated after being murdered, by an assault weapon furnished by this administration, while defending our border.

dem fro Ga. involved? yes, we have some nasty snakes elected(?) from here. take sen. bishop for instance. he and the commie-kenyan were the architects of the 'pigford' fiasco. a few black farmers suing for discrimination on farm loans ballooned into many billion$ to tens of thousands of non-farmers, and their lawyers. some say this is what Breitbart was investigating when he was killed.

walked out on these families, yet couldn't slobber enough over the sandy hook families wanting more gun control, like chicago has. 13 killed almost every day there w/ all sorts of mostly illegal weapons.

never let these people hide. I have a feeling they won't be in office much longer.

Party before country. So typical of the Democrat Party. They should be ashamed of themselves. If you want to be charitable you could say they were ashamed and couldn't look the families in the eye, but then when you think about all they've perpetrated in the past five years you have to realize, they have no shame.

Repulsive, squirmy, slimy, appalling, disgusting, spit-in-your-face-with-a-smile Democrat Congressmen. As to the Administration official that lied to Patricia Smith, one by one, let's hope there is still Justice left in America, and that she is blind, and intends to speak.

Don't give up hope. The truth will win out in the end.

Think CNN and NBC will be leading with this story tonight? Think it'll be front page on the NYT? Think TIME will do a cover story?
