Clinton’s testimony less than candid

Three days after the assault at Benghazi and after memorializing the four murdered Americans, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made the following remarks at the “welcome home” ceremony for the dead, according to America Times:

“This has been a difficult week for the State Department and for our country. We’ve seen the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing to do with. It is hard for the American people to make sense of that because it is senseless, and it is totally unacceptable.”

She was quite clear — the Benghazi raid was the result of “an awful internet video that we had nothing to do with.”

Although President Obama didn’t mention the video in his own remarks, it’s fair to say that his silence on this matter was assent.

During her testimony Wednesday before the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Rep. Dana Rohrbacher, R-Calif., challenged Clinton on the anti-Islamic video narrative.

“Well, first of all, I said the next morning that it was an attack by heavily armed militants,” Clinton responded.

Later in her testimony, Clinton seemed to back away from that statement, then returned to it.
