Hillary was front and center of the news cycle last week as she testified before Congress on the Benghazi Embassy attack, and even the top intelligence agency is disputing her testimony according to Michael Morell, in his new book. According to The Daily Caller:
In Morell’s 2015 book The Great War of Our Time, he writes that while the CIA knew “the demonstration and violence in Cairo were sparked by people upset over a YouTube video,” intelligence “analysts never said the video was a factor in the Benghazi attacks.” (p. 205-206)
Clinton told the Libyan President on the night of the attacks that “Ansar as-Sharia [sic] is claiming responsibility.” However, Clinton did not mention the video and Ansar al-Sharia’s senior leader in Benghazi, Ahmed Abu Khatallah, is the only person who was arrested for the attacks.
Clinton also sent an e-mail on the night of the attacks to her daughter Chelsea telling her that attacks were done by an “Al Qaeda-like group.” The e-mail did not reference the YouTube video.
One day after the attack, the Egyptian Prime Minister said the incident “had nothing to do with the film. It was a planed attack–not a protest…Based on the information we saw today we believe the group that claimed responsibility for this was affiliated with al Qaeda.”
With numerous officials disputing the 2016 Presidential Candidates testimony and recollection of events. It’s amazing the liberal media still gives her comments a pass. Wouldn’t it be nice to hear Hillary subjected to real questions with real follow up?
What do you think about blaming the Benghazi attacks on a video with a couple hundred views? Leave a comment with your thoughts below.
