In her quest to blame anyone but the Obama administration for the events in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, liberal radio talk show host Leslie Marshall intimated that Ambassador Christopher Stevens was at fault for his own murder as he “was the one who wanted to be in Benghazi.”
In an appearance Sunday on Fox News’ “America’s News Room,” Marshall was participating in a debate with Tea Party News Network’s Scottie Nell Hughes and host Martha Maccallum, based on the “60 Minutes” report on Benghazi out the same day.
“No matter how much security we have, things like this can happen,” Marshall said in defense of President Obama. “Let’s keep in mind, Ambassador Stevens was the one who wanted to be in Benghazi; Ambassador Stevens was the one who wanted to branch out from Tripoli to Benghazi.”
As we learned very early on in Obama’s first run for the White House, no one is above being thrown under the bus when it comes to protecting Obama’s image. Even a murdered American ambassador.
In her zest to protect the president, Marshall claimed that Al-qaida factions are “in every Muslim, and perhaps, in every country in the world.”
A claim will come as news to Obama, who described al Qaeda as having been “decimated,” “on the path to defeat” or some other variation at least 32 times prior to the November election, according to CNS News.
Perhaps you should stop digging, Leslie.
