If you are one of the people who stood in line this week to have Hillary Clinton sign her new book — and there must be, gosh, dozens of you by now — you may have been soaking your bunions when she did this revealing interview with Bret Baier and Greta Van Susteren of Fox News.
Or maybe you were just trying to stay awake through the first chapter, whatever.
“This was the fog of war,” Clinton said, when asked about the administration’s controversial public explanation of the attack.
“My own assessment careened from the video had something to do with it, the video had nothing to do with it — it may have affected some people, it didn’t affect other people,” she said in the interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier and Greta Van Susteren.
Clinton added: “There’s no doubt terrorists were involved.”
The former secretary of State appeared to offer a nuanced explanation for how her department came to initially embrace the video explanation, which Republicans to this day say was unfounded and misleading. She stood by prior statements that she was not aware of any reports contradicting intelligence community talking points citing the video, yet suggested she was personally unsure about what caused the violence. Four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, died in the attack.
“I was trying to make sense of it,” Clinton said, suggesting the intelligence community was responsible for making that connection.
Despite her own apparent deliberations, the State Department put out a statement the night of Sept. 11 that cited “inflammatory material posted on the Internet.”
It was ‘the fog of war,’ and Hillary knows all too well how that can ‘careen’ someone’s memory of historical events… And the fog only gets thicker after the shooting stops and the cordite clears from your nostrils.
Which must be why she emphatically told Benghazi hero Sean Smith’s mother it was the inflammatory anti-Muslim video, and was still claiming that in October 2012; and January 2013 and May 2013 and, in fact, is still suggesting in her new book that Libyans out for a walk on a fine Benghazi night were involved.
Listen nimrods — Okay, a few terrorists were involved. All right? There, I’ve said it.
Now maybe you rightwing nutcake conspiracy theorists who think everything is a distraction to divert attention from one Obama administration f#@&-up to another will shut up and turn the freaking page.
Remember when Hillary said this to, then, Iraq commander General David Petraeus, regarding his surge strategy?
Oh, so now she wants us to willingly suspend disbelief?
