Benghazi Widow SLAMS Hillary: Don't Tell Me To 'Move On'

The widow of one of the Benghazi victims tore into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for her reprehensible comment that it was "time to move on" from the terror attack.

At a campaign rally in Denver, CO, Clinton disparagingly remarked: "I think it's pretty clear it's time to move on."

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee wasn't done:

Clinton reiterated that her top concern at the State Department was the "safety and security" of American foreign service officers abroad when they are "pursuing American values, interests, and our security."

But the Benghazi Committee, she added, which is led by Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy, has taken on a "partisan tinge" despite finding "nothing to contract" the previous conclusions about what happened that night.

"I understand that after more than two years and $7 million spent by the Benghazi Committee, out of taxpayer funds, it had to today report it had found nothing, nothing to contradict the conclusions of the independent accountability board or the conclusions of the prior multiple earlier investigations carried out on a bipartisan basis in the Congress," she said. "So while this unfortunately took on a partisan tinge, I want us to stay focused on what I've always wanted us to stay focused on, and that is the important work of diplomacy and development."

Understandably, Dorothy Woods, the widow of Tyrone Woods, one of the four brave American heroes that died that night, was irked by Clinton's comment in an appearance on CNN's OutFront with Erin Burnett.

"She has no right, nor does anyone in government have the right, to tell me it’s time to move on," Woods responded in a tone that was measured, yet clearly tinged with anger and sadness. "They're not in my shoes."

Woods also slammed Clinton's apologists for being "dismissive" of the Benghazi committee, which she felt was "trying to do the right thing." However, she did agree with Clinton to an extent that the public needs to ultimately come to their own conclusions about Benghazi.

"The facts are there, and it's up to Americans and the American people to really figure out where they fall on this," Woods said.

The committee's report clearly points the finger at Clinton for failing to staff the Benghazi compound even though she knew they were in danger; it proves that she knowingly lied about the attack when she claimed to the faces of the Benghazi victims' loved ones that it stemmed from a YouTube video.

Woods said the report "did not change my view of what happened, nor who to blame."

"I place a blame on this sentiment, on this attitude in the upper level of government that says, ‘Hey, you know what, I’m just gonna lie about this, gloss over it, because I want to protect what I look like, and I’m thinking about the next job,'" Woods said.
