On Thursday, Fox News’ Catherine Herridge reported on the “smoking gun” that reveals then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton knew the Benghazi terror attack was carried out by Islamic terrorists and was not the result of a protest sparked by an obscure YouTube video.
Nevertheless, the administration went out and lied to the public for weeks afterward. According to the report, Clinton emailed her family and told them, “Two officers were killed today in Benghazi by an al-Qaeda-like group.”
The National Review reported:
Clinton also parroted the YouTube statement in the days after the attacks, even telling family members of the victims that the pastor who made the video would be brought to justice. But on Thursday, Ohio representative Jim Jordan revealed that State Department experts knew the administration’s line on Benghazi was bogus — and that it was driven entirely by politics.
But she knew all along that it was a terrorist attack. Here’s Herridge discussing the bombshell with Fox News’ Greta van Susteren, courtesy of the Gateway Pundit:
Here’s video of Jordan shredding Clinton:
Here’s Rice blaming the attack on a video, even though the regime knew better.
Now, we’re told to not believe our lying eyes. The situation is even worse as the National Review pointed out:
The night of the attack, Clinton also called the prime minister of Libya, explaining that Ansar al-Sharia had claimed responsibility. And in a call with Egyptian prime minister Hisham Kandil, Clinton deliberately rejected the video idea. “We know the attack had nothing to do with the film,” she says. “It was a planned attack, not a protest . . . Based on the information we saw today, we believe that the group that claimed responsibility for this was affiliated with al-Qaeda.”
But liberal defenders of Hillary are trying to make this look like a giant conservative conspiracy all designed to take Clinton down.
The fact is, she’s been caught in a big way. Add this to her 40-plus years of lies, scandals and corruption. The real question now is whether anything of real substance will ever be done to make this right.
