Speaking at the South Carolina Freedom Summit on Saturday, John Bolton , the former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations said that Hillary Clinton was not fit to be president of the United States because she did not take necessary steps to protect the Americans in Libya.
Robert Wilde at Breitbart reported that on the day that Ambassador Christopher Stevens, along with three other brave Americans, was killed in Benghazi, Bolton said that “not only was nothing done, the response of the administration was to go home. The president left the Oval office in the situation room to go to the residence. Hillary Clinton left the State Department to go home.”
Not once did Clinton call the secretary of defense to see what the status of the embassy was at that time. “She didn’t stay in a way the six secretaries of state that I worked for would have stayed. They would have stayed there all night to protect our people in danger overseas. Hillary Clinton went home. That act alone disqualifies her from being president of the United States,” Bolton exhorted.
Bolton expressed his anger that, after the entire sordid Benghazi affair, the U.S. government arrested just one of the people responsible and brought them back for a full due process criminal trial.
The ambassador asked, “What lesson does that send to the terrorists all around the world? What lessons does it send to the state sponsors of terrorism all around the world who arm and equip them and finance them? I’ll tell you what it says. It says an American ambassador, who is the personal representative of the president of the United States overseas, can be murdered by a group of terrorists with complete impunity.”
Bolton clarified, “Under Barack Obama, you can kill his personal representative, and he does nothing. That’s the lesson that it sends.”
Bolton added that Clinton will not answer any questions about this other than her last outburst, “’What difference does it make?’ That disqualifies her from being president as well.”
