Dorothy Woods, the widow of Ty Woods, one of the four who died in Benghazi four years ago, on Thursday took former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to task for her handling of the terror attack, saying that "she turned her back" on those involved in the aftermath and is unfit to serve as commander in chief.
"I'm not going to tell anyone how to vote, but this is — I want to put it very simply. I realize sometimes that we all have the best intentions, and that we make mistakes," Woods told radio host Hugh Hewitt. "Hillary Clinton cannot do what parents all over the country do to teach their kids right versus wrong, so she cannot fundamentally be our commander in chief. You know, it's that simple. It's that empirical to me. I wouldn't teach my son, you know, to treat other people like that. And now she wants to be in charge of other people's sons? No."
She told Hewitt that she doesn't trust the Democratic nominee and that the incident is a "testament" to how she would act if she wins the presidency in November, arguing that what took place following the attack in Benghazi is "evidence" of how she'll act "when the chips are down."
"No, I don't [trust her]. And I have personal experience with that," Woods told the host. "Time and time again, we've seen that Hillary is a woman who has repeatedly acted in a way that isn't commander in chief like, you know? So I feel like the media forces us to base our decision, base our vote on someone who sounds bad versus someone who has, there's actual evidence on how someone has acted when the chips were down."
"In my case, we know how she acted. She let it go," Woods said. "She turned her back. So to me, that's just, you know, more evidence as a testament to see how she would be as a president."
Woods also said Clinton's comments about wanting to "move on" from what took place are "easily offensive" after losing her husband nearly four years ago. She also argued that Clinton is a smart person and has been playing the political game concerning the incident.
"Her response to the report when someone had asked her about that, you know, she's dismissive. It's characteristic Clinton. It's characteristic Obama. You know, let's go ahead and sweep that under the rug," Woods said. "It doesn't suit what I am, the narrative I'm trying to present about myself. And it's time to move on."
"And while I understand she's talking about the nation as a whole, you know, I can also extrapolate from that and say hey, you're not telling me to move on," Woods continued. "Nobody can tell me to move on. Nobody can tell me how to feel. Nobody can tell me how to think about it. So you know, for someone in that position, I feel like sometimes, she says things so that her words are easily offensive."
Woods also revealed that unlike the situation concerning Patricia Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, Clinton did not blame the attack on the infamous "video." Instead, she told her she was "sorry" for her loss and didn't say much otherwise.
"She did not [mention the video]. I know that there are other family members who have said that. I can't attest to that, but I know that she did not to me," Woods said. "And sometimes, I wonder if it's because I had a big Navy SEAL standing behind me, and guys who also had worked with Ty from the agency. I don't know. But she did not."
