The father of one of the four Americans killed in Benghazi has challenged Hillary Clinton to take a lie-detector test to prove she didn’t blame the 2012 terror attack on a YouTube video.

“I would love to sit down with Hillary Clinton, if she’d agree to do it as well, and at the same table by the same operator, have a lie detector test,” Charles Woods, father of former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, told One America News Network in an interview Wednesday, the Daily Caller reported.

The three other families who lost a loved one in the attack have confirmed Mr. Woods’ story that Mrs. Clinton, then-secretary of state, blamed the video, “Innocence of Muslims,” during a memorial service held on Sept. 14, 2012.

“She said, ‘We’re going to have that person responsible for that video put in jail,’ ” Mr. Woods recalled.

The Democratic presidential front-runner has denied in two recent interviews that she ever blamed the video in conversations with the victims’ families. Mr. Woods, a retired administration law judge, said he felt obligated to speak out after seeing Mrs. Clinton’s December interview on ABC News, in which she denied the allegations.

“She basically called me and the other family members liars,” Mr. Woods said.
