Benghazi fallout: Hillary emails reveal SOURCE of blame-the-video cover story

With so much information contained in just a few hundred emails, image what could be learned from the 30,000 emails Hillary Clinton deleted.

After much speculation over who crafted Clinton’s cover story on Benghazi, it turns out it was Max Blumenthal, the son of notorious Clinton hatchet man Sidney Blumenthal.

“The son of Clinton’s longtime political adviser and informal Libya consultant, Max Blumenthal pushed his conspiratorial theories onto the secretary of state in the hours after Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others were killed,” the Daily Caller reported.

The younger Blumenthal, a chip off the old block, “helped inspire” the false narrative that the obscure YouTube video “Innocence of Muslims” was behind the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, according to the Daily Caller.

Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was the first Obama administration official to say the “anti-Muslim” video prompted a spontaneous protest from local Muslims that escalated into a violent attack, according to The Daily Caller.

Occurring on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, with President Obama on the campaign trail saying al-Qaida is on the run, the administration had lots of reasons to distract Americans from the fact that a terrorist group affiliated with al-Qaida was responsible.

The Daily Caller said the elder Blumenthal made Clinton aware of the video on Sept. 12 — she forwarded a link to an article written by Max, who is now a writer for the far-left website AlterNet, the same day.

“Pls print,” Clinton wrote in the email to a colleague

The part showing who sent her the link was redacted.

For national security reasons, no doubt.
