On one hand, the Administration was clinging to the “it was the movie” line to explain the preplanned attack on the Libyan Consulate which resulted in four preventable murders. But then, CNN finds the diary of deceased Chris Stevens and reveals his concern over Islamic extremism. In an extreme case of shooting the messenger, the administration then calls CNN’s use of the information indefensible and disgusting.
Come on, we know it’s the movie, we didn’t drop the ball here! We’re sorry for the movie, really we are.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday she has “absolutely no information or reason to believe there is any basis” to suggest that U.S. ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens believed he was on an al Qaeda hit list.
CNN found the journal and “a source familiar with Stevens’ thinking told CNN earlier this week that, in the months leading up to his death, the late ambassador worried about what he called the security threats in Benghazi and a rise in Islamic extremism.”
But, regardless, Dear Leader and Hillary Clinton continue to apologize and actually BUY time “on television channels in Pakistan with President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton disavowing an anti-Islamic film that triggered riots.”
Truth and honesty? Transparency?
