They’re purposely lying to this mother. Their son died because of this movie. Their son did not die because of a movie. He died because of a terror attack that our consulate was not prepared for. It’s no more complicated than that. Who is this woman, Pat Smith? She’s an American. Her son is killed in action. She’s a real woman.

All this woman wants to know — she’s not asking for anything. She just wants to know what happened. Why is her son dead? How did it happen? And they still have the gall to tell her it’s a video.
