Lifelong Hillary supporter Eleanor Rodham Clift (a Democrat pundit who has grown older but not wiser) has been rightly ridiculed for comparing the Benghazi Terror Attack to a housefire, and saying that Ambassador Stevens wasn’t murdered but “died of smoke inhalation.”
That’s like saying JFK died of blood loss following a head injury.
The Left continues to mock Benghazi as a phony scandal, which it is, provided all of the following things are true:
- The attack really was because of a YouTube video, so the administration didn’t lie about that.
- The Benghazi consulate got all the additional security they requested from Hillary Clinton’s State Department.
- The Obama Administration swung into action and did everything possible to save the victims when the attack was underway.
- The CIA personnel on the ground in Benghazi were demonstrably not involved in any covert activity involving the transfer of weapons among terror groups.
As long as all four of those things are true, then the left is correct in calling Benghazi a phony scandal.
Update: Below the fold, Trey Gowdy takes on Democrat criticisms that Benghazi is being politicized by shoving it right back into their smug, snotty faces.
