When it comes to politics, candidates running for elective office are prone to make gaffes. People are fallible, and sometimes say the wrong things that they end up having to walk back, or apologize for.Politicians like Hillary Clinton are so seasoned at politicking, that gaffes usually don’t play much of a part in whatever campaign they are running in, except when they are running for President of the United States.
There are gaffes, and then there are really bad gaffes.
For whatever reason, Hillary Clinton must have had a senior moment or something, when she stated that the U.S. “didn’t lose a single person” in the Islamist state of Libya.

“Now, is Libya perfect? It isn’t,” Clinton said. After contrasting her approach toward Libya with the ongoing bloodshed in Syria’s civil war, Clinton said “Libya was a different kind of calculation and we didn’t lose a single person … We didn’t have a problem in supporting our European and Arab allies in working with NATO.”
Clinton made no mention of the Sept. 11, 2012 terror attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans: U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, information officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.-Fox
Expect the Republicans, including presidential candidates Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Donald Trump to pounce hard on Hillary in the coming days for this gaffe.
