Emails Prove the Truth About Benghazi

As official documents and Hillary Clinton’s Oct. 22 hearing before the House Select Committee on Benghazi demonstrate, she blamed the Benghazi debacle on a video posted to the Internet.

She issued a statement on the attack at 10:32 p.m. EDT on Sept.11, 2012. It read, in part: “Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.”

But that was a lie.

At 11:12 p.m., just 40 minutes later, Hillary told her daughter, Chelsea, the truth in a smoking email: “Two of our officers were killed in Benghazi by an al Qaeda-like group.”

At 11:49 p.m., Hillary contacted Libyan President Mohamed Magariaf, also with the truth: “There is a gun battle ongoing, which I understand Ansar [al] Sharia is claiming responsibility for.” This group is al-Qaida’s Libyan franchisee.

“Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior, along with the protest that took place at our Embassy in Cairo yesterday, as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet,” she said in a speech at the State Department. “America’s commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear — there is no justification for this, none.”

Hillary toggled back to private-truth mode at 3:04 p.m., when she phoned Hisham Qandil, then-prime minister in Egypt’s Islamist Muslim Brotherhood government. “We know the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was a planned attack — not a protest…We believe that the group that claimed responsibility for this was affiliated with al-Qaeda.”

On Sept. 14, during the ceremony at Andrews Air Force Base she and Obama welcomed home the flag-draped caskets of U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, technical officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. “We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with,” Hillary said.

She took things a totalitarian step further when — according to Tyrone Woods’s father, Charles — Hillary told him, “We will make sure that the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted.”

Five Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies fulfilled Hillary’s chilling prophecy to Charles Woods that Sept. 27. Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the Egyptian Coptic-Christian who created the notorious Internet video, Innocence of Muslims, was arrested, supposedly because he used a pseudonym and, thus, violated his parole on an unrelated bank-fraud conviction.

He subsequently was sentenced to a year in the La Tuna Federal Correctional Institution in Texas. Never mind that the First Amendment should have shielded his right to produce whatever video he wanted on Mohammad or any other religious figure. Hillary appears to have transformed Nakoula from a poor-quality filmmaker into a political prisoner.

Hillary covered up painful facts, lest they contradict Obama’s re-election campaign theme: “al-Qaida is on the path to defeat, and Osama bin Laden is dead.”

And it worked! Obama won the White House in November 2012, and put Hillary in a comfortable position from which to run as his successor.

Hillary Clinton’s version about the Benghazi massacre confirmed, once and for all, that she is a walking, talking moral vacuum. She deserves all of the scorn, disrespect, and rejection that such a disgraceful distinction demands.
