Andrea Mitchell Is Worried About The Benghazi Movie Because It Could Be Bad For Hillary
I’ve already got tickets for the first showing of 13 Hours on Thursday night. But after getting Andrea Mitchell’s perspective, I’m wondering if I should ask for a refund.
On her MSNBC show on Monday, host Andrea Mitchell derided the film 13 Hours, opening in theaters nationwide on Friday: “That new film about Benghazi coming out this week could give wider circulation to conspiracy theories, despite denials, that CIA operatives were told to stand down and not rescue four Americans, including an ambassador, who died in that assault…”
Mitchell’s concern was clear: “How could it affect Hillary Clinton’s campaign?…how does Clinton-world deal with it?” She put that question to Washington Post Reporter Anne Gearan, who proclaimed: “Well, I mean, Clinton herself has denied it and it sort of ceases to matter how many officials do deny it, it is something that has gained currency, as you mentioned, as a conspiracy theory largely on the right.”
Andrea Mitchell is calling the guys on the ground “conspiracy theorists” for telling us what happened. You see, she knows more than the men who risked their lives when their fellow countrymen were in deadly danger. Frankly, she’s better than them.
Just look at that formulation: “Despite denials.” Sure, the guys who were actually right there in Benghazi are telling us one thing, but the politicians who have a lot more to lose are telling us another thing. So we can discount the very possibility that these men are telling the truth. We can just dismiss it as a “conspiracy theory.” Instead, we should believe the people with the most power. Why would they lie?
Please note that this standard can be disregarded if the people in power are Republicans. Then everything they say is suspect, despite any evidence that supports them.
It’s almost as if Andrea Mitchell is a paid operative of the Democratic Party.
Here’s a conspiracy theory for you, Andrea:

Never mind. Jennifer Jacobs, Des Moines Register:
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton declined on Monday to say if she has been in communication with any of the women involved in the sex scandals during Bill Clinton’s presidency.
Asked if she has had any interactions with them, or feels empathy for any of them, Clinton told The Des Moines Register: “No, I have nothing to say and I will leave it to voters to determine whether any of that is at all relevant to their decision.”
