Pat Smith, the mother of one of the four Americans slain on September 11, 2012 in Benghazi, took to Fox News over the weekend with a "Mother's Day" message for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Speaking with Mike Huckabee, Smith said the congressional hearings last week gave her absolutely no closure, and that she is still "waiting for answers to just about everything."
"I do want to say one thing though," Smith stated. "I want to wish Hillary [Clinton] a happy Mother's Day. She's got her child. I don't have mine, because of her."
Smith spoke with Clinton when her son's body was brought home, and says Clinton blamed a YouTube video and promised that she would get back to her with answers.
"She has not," Smith declared. "Neither has anybody else."
Only one person has contacted her, Smith says, "a clerk of some kind" to read her a timeline of what happened, that she says she already had.
"I want someone to admit that they blew it and that they made the wrong decision..." Smith pleaded. "I do know that they asked for help, that they were refused -- and I want to know why! Why were they refused?"
Later in the interview, Smith repeatedly stated that "the government doesn't care" about people like her.
"All they had to do is tell me what happened and I would've gone away. But they didn't even bother. I was an unimportant person," she said, her voice breaking. "And now I'm an unimportant person that doesn't have a child for Mother's Day. And I feel it so deeply. They cannot understand how I feel."
