Top Dem Senator Shoots Down New York Times Benghazi YouTube Hoax

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On January 14, 2014 @ 10:02 pm In The Point | No Comments

David Kilpatrick bizarrely tried to revive long discredited claims and the New York Times even more bizarrely let him to do it. These are claims that even no one in Obama Inc. is seriously putting forward anymore.

Shortly after Kilpatrick’s story ran, the State Department took action against Al Qaeda affiliated groups responsible for the Benghazi attacks. The YouTube video claim doesn’t get heard anymore. The New  York Times couldn’t have picked a worse time to run its hoax.

Even Diane Feinstein won’t try to back that nonsense.

The chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee said that key conclusions of a recent New York Times investigation into the 2012 Benghazi attack are wrong.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) rejected the Times’s conclusion that al Qaeda wasn’t responsible for the attack that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. She also took issue with the notion that the Libya strike was sparked by a U.S.-made anti-Islam video online.

“I believe that groups loosely associated with al Qaeda were” involved in the attack, she told The Hill last week. “That’s my understanding.”

She also disputed the notion that the Sept. 11, 2012, assault evolved from a protest against the video, which was widely disseminated by Islamic clerics shortly before the attack.

“It doesn’t jibe with me,” she said.

Obviously. It never made any sense that a heavy organized attack that was part of a series of timed attacks around the Middle East was momentarily thrown together over a YouTube video.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
