As former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testifies before the House Select Committee on Benghazi today, a memo was released that made it very clear that neither Congress nor the American people can trust anything she says.
Stephen Hayes, senior writer for The Weekly Standard and a frequent Fox News contributor, tweeted Thursday afternoon that the memo “summarizes her words w/ Egyptian PM.”
Those words were basically that she and the United States government under President Barack Obama were well aware that the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission and nearby CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya, was a planned operation, not a spontaneous demonstration against an anti-Islam video.
Here’s the problem for Clinton: The memo, according to Townhall political editor and author Guy Benson, was dated Sept. 12, 2012 — the day after the attacks took place.
Despite this, Clinton and others in the Obama administration continued to tell the American public — weeks before President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election — that the attacks were a response to that video.
Of course, Obama, who had taken credit for the death of Osama bin Laden the year before, was running, in part, on the idea that his administration had Al Qaeda on the run.
The fact that an American facility had not only been attacked, but largely destroyed, by a radical Islamic terror group obviously ran counter to that narrative.
And the lies keep rolling out…..
