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.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
