During Benghazi Attack, Instead of Saving Americans, Hillary’s People Told YouTube to Take Down Video

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On May 22, 2014 @ 5:40 pm In The Point | 7 Comments

While Americans were fighting for their lives in Benghazi, Hillary’s State Department sprang into action to warn YouTube that Muslims were offended by a video. Their priority was not the lives of the Americans that their neglect had abandoned in a war zone, but protecting the hurt feelings of Muslims.

And censoring free speech. That’s what a Hillary 3 AM phone call looks like.

A still-classified State Department e-mail says that one of the first responses from the White House to the Benghazi attack was to contact YouTube to warn of the “ramifications” of allowing the posting of an anti-Islamic video.

The memo suggests that even as the attack was still underway — and before the CIA began the process of compiling talking points on its analysis of what happened — the White House believed it was in retaliation for a controversial video.

The subject line of the e-mail, which was sent at 9:11 p.m. Eastern Time on the night of the attack, is “Update on Response to actions – Libya.” The e-mail was written hours before the attack was over.

“White House is reaching out to U-Tube [sic] to advice ramification of the posting of the Pastor Jon video,” the e-mail reads, according to Issa.

Why is an email to YouTube still classified? Because it’s embarrassing, and not just because whoever wrote it couldn’t spell YouTube, but because the State Department was acting like their favorite Turkish despot and prioritizing Muslim feelings over American lives.

And this is typical of how the State Department does things.

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
