The mother of Sean Smith, a U.S. information management officer killed in the 2012 attack in Benghazi, said Thursday that there’s “a special place in hell” for people like Hillary Clinton.

Patricia Smith’s scathing comments came one day after the former secretary of state said at Wednesday’s Democratic debate that Ms. Smith was “absolutely wrong” to claim she lied about the terror attack, The Blaze reported.

“We were nose-to-nose at the coffin ceremony. She lied to me,” Ms. Smith recalled on the Fox Business Network. “She told me it was the fault of the video. I said ‘are you sure?’ She says, ‘Yes, that’s what it was. … It was the video.’ And she knew full well it wasn’t at that time. And then she says she was going to check and if it’s any different she would call me back, she would let me know.”

She said she had not had any contact with Mrs. Clinton since.

“All I want is for Hillary to tell me what happened. What’s political about that? I think that as a mother, I deserve to know. And as a woman, as she says, she always talks about a woman, I am a woman too. I think I deserve to know why my son is dead,” Ms. Smith said. “I want to speak to her personally and I want to be able to ask her what happened. I want her to be able to tell me what happened. I don’t believe she’s got the guts to do that.

“As Madeleine Albright said, ‘There’s a special place in hell’ for people like [Mrs. Clinton] and I hope she enjoys it there!” she exclaimed, fighting back tears. “I just want to know! I just want to know what happened!”
