Hillary Clinton knew damn well that the Benghazi attack wasn’t caused by any YouTube video

On September 11, 2012, Ambassador Christopher Stevens was murdered by terrorists in Benghazi, Libya. Since then, Hillary Clinton hasn’t said a single truthful thing about it.

Paul Bedard at the Washington Examiner reports:

Just minutes after 35 jihadists crashed through the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, nearly one year ago, the facility got word to the State Department, FBI and Pentagon that terrorists were attacking, according to a forthcoming book that provides the fullest review of the assault to date.

In “Under Fire, the Untold Story of the Attack in Benghazi,” it is revealed that an unidentified security official in the Benghazi compound protecting Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens messaged the U.S. embassy in Tripoli: “Benghazi under fire, terrorist attack.” Stevens and three others died that night.

Twenty-five minutes after it began, the operation center at State received an electronic cable announcing the attack, according to authors Fred Burton, a former State Diplomatic Security agent and Samuel Katz, an author and expert on international special operations and counterterrorism.

Twenty-five minutes.

Whatevs! I’m with Scarlett Johansson:

“I think Hillary Clinton would make a wonderful president. I think we could only benefit from having someone in office who has been a mother,” she said. “Women have a different perspective and appreciation of humanity because of that maternal instinct.”

Provided, of course, that the woman in question isn’t a Republican.
