Fox News contributor Brit Hume lashed out at former Congresswoman Jane Harman (D., Calif.) on Fox News Sunday after she delivered an arrogant and dismissive lecture on the Benghazi talking points.
Harman equated the Benghazi talking points to other absurd conspiracy theories, prompting a large eye roll from Hume.
“You’re right, there wasn’t a conspiracy in the United States to mount the Benghazi attack,” Hume said. ”That’s not the question. The question was whether in the aftermath of the attack, when the administration sent its U.N. ambassador out to explain it to everybody, and she did so falsely, that there wasn’t a conspiracy to create the false talking points that she used. I’m not talking about the CIA talking points, I’m talking about the talking points used on that program that day, which were monumentally misleading, that since have been shown to be false, and based on no intelligence of any consequence that we know of.”
Hume pressed Harman to name a single person in the administration who credibly believed that the Benghazi attack was connected to an anti-Islam video. Predictably, she could not do so.
“Ben Rhodes talks about the video five times in this memo, five times,” host Chris Wallace interjected.
A clearly flustered Harman deflected, vaguely asserting “my view on this, having been around at the time, was that this was not deliberately misleading. It turned out to be wrong, but it was not deliberate.”
