A former Navy SEAL blames Hillary Clinton for the death of four Americans who were killed during a terrorist attack on a U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
“I want her held accountable for what she did,” Tej Gill said in an interview with The Blaze’s Dana Loesch. “I’m sure she’ll never go to jail, but at least place the blame securely on her shoulders.”
Gill was close friends with Tyrone Woods and Glenn Doherty — two former Navy SEALs who were killed in the attack in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. Woods and Doherty were in Libya working as security contractors, and they died rushing to aid their colleagues.
“If that consulate would’ve had the security in place that was needed and denied, that attack would’ve taken place, but the consulate would’ve been able to repel the attack,” he said.
“Six hundred security requests denied,” Gill continued, referring to Clinton’s decision to ignore multiple requests for additional security. “The consulate had zero security. There was some Libyan militia [working as a security force], they weren’t trained by the U.S., they weren’t vetted by the U.S., and they didn’t have U.S. supervisors. . . When the attack happened, they put their weapons down and walked away.”
Due to the lack of security, the consulate was overrun by terrorists in a matter of minutes, he said.
Prior to the attack, then-secretary of State Hillary Clinton was told numerous times the consulate was unsafe. American ambassador Chris Stevens pled for more security from Clinton multiple times before he was killed in the attack. She ignored the warnings and put American lives at risk.
Gill founded an organization called “Project Warpath,” which sells T-shirts that read “Hillary Clinton Killed My Friends,” to raise money for the Navy SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce, Florida. The museum helps wounded SEALs and SEAL families in need.
