As Glenn Reynolds notes, none of us should forget this shameful moment in American history:
“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.”
When Hillary Clinton spoke those words, in front of those victims’ families and the whole world, she knew full well that the Benghazi attack had nothing to do with any YouTube video. Months later, when she was finally called to account for it, she actually said, “What difference does it make?”
Clinton lied about the murder of an American ambassador and three other brave Americans who were left to die. She knows she lied. She knows we know she lied. And the best her defenders can muster up is: “Hey, it was a long time ago. Let it go.”
Hillary 2016. Yay.
