Sharyl Attkisson’s special report on Benghazi: What we now know vs. what we were told

attkissonInvestigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson corrected in a big way all Democrats and naysayers who wail that the House Select Committee on Benghazi is a waste of time, effort and taxpayer dollars intended as a hit piece on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

After all, the events of September 11, 2012 were already investigated by seven other congressional committees.

In Sunday’s “Full Measure,” Attkisson compares what we know now with what the public was told then.

Almost from the moment of the attack, the Obama administration knew that the al Qaida-tied Ansar al-Sharia took credit for the attack. Nonetheless, Clinton announced four hours later that it was a spontaneous reaction to an anti-Islamic YouTube video.

Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, a member of the Benghazi Select Committee, indicated that the committee, even without Clinton’s testimony, has unearthed a lot of information not available to the previous seven Congressional committees.

In addition to tens of thousands of Clinton’s emails, the committee “has talked to seven eyewitnesses that the other committees did not talk to,” he told Attkisson.

“And [we] interviewed 41 other folks who had information about that tragic night.”

Watch the full segment of “Full Measure” in preparation for Clinton’s appearance before the committee Thursday.
