Conservatives mock Media Matters and its ‘coded message’ in Benghazi film

The release of Michael Bay’s film “13 Hours,” which depicts the men who defended the American diplomatic outpost in Benghazi from a terrorist attack, is causing supporters of Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton to go into panic mode.

Although Clinton isn’t mentioned in the film, she served as secretary of state during the event, which led to the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

The far-left Media Matters thought the film was a condemnation of Clinton and the Obama administration’s lack of response to the attack. The progressive watchdog group tweeted:

Whether the film is a “coded message” directed against Clinton or not, Bey hired the men who were actually there to serve as technical directors to be assured of the film’s accuracy — not to promote an alleged “conspiracy.”

The Federalist and RedState contributor Jay Caruso thought it great fun, and tweeted:

Soon others joined in.

And salvage a re-election it did. The Benghazi attack occurred on September 11, 2012 — two months before voters would head to the polls.

If Clinton’s campaign encounters a speed-bump with “13 Hours,” it won’t be because of some alleged conspiracy theory hatched up by the filmmaker. It will be because of the film’s accurate portrayal of what the Americans endured during those 13 hours and the administration’s lack of response.
