The Benghazi Attackers Reported To Their Bosses Using Stolen State Department Phones

Hello and welcome to all the #BenghaziDeniers who clicked on this headline to shriek incoherently in the comments. Here’s another fact for you to seethe about.

Bret Baier and James Rosen, Fox News:

The terrorists who attacked the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 used cell phones, seized from State Department personnel during the attacks, and U.S. spy agencies overheard them contacting more senior terrorist leaders to report on the success of the operation, multiple sources confirmed to Fox News.

The disclosure is important because it adds to the body of evidence establishing that senior U.S. officials in the Obama administration knew early on that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and not a spontaneous protest over an anti-Islam video that had gone awry, as the administration claimed for several weeks after the attacks.

This can’t be good news for Hillary Clinton as she trudges through another day on her already-disastrous book tour. She just got done dismissing her own ineptitude and dishonesty as “minor-league ball.” Her dimwitted adherents have been insisting that she and the rest of the Obama administration were acting in good faith, based on the best information they had at the time. That’s a lie, and this is just the latest evidence to prove it.

At this point, it makes a difference.

But it only matters if you believe there’s such a thing as the truth. That is, it only matters if you’re not a leftist.
