Clinton comments occur from 16:25-17:45Clinton knew, she had to know, that the video story was a lie. Yet she made that statement anyway, knowing that she was lying to the American people. That is probably the most craven act of political misdirection since the Tonkin Gulf incident.
“This has been a difficult week for the State Department and for our country. We’ve seen the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing do to with. It’s hard for the American people to make sense of that, because it is senseless, and it is totally unacceptable. The people of Egypt, Libya, Yemen and Tunisia, did not trade the tyranny of a dictator for the tyranny of a mob. Reasonable people and responsible leaders in these countries in these countries need to do everything they can to restore security and hold accountable those behind these violent acts. And we will, under the president’s leadership, keep taking steps to protect our personnel around the world.”
Instapundit has the video at the link. Go see for yourself. Clinton deserves to go to jail for this lie.
