Nearly a year and a half later, the State Department finally catches up (somewhat) with reality and released the names of the two terrorist organizations suspected for the Benghazi murders: Ansar al-Sharia in Benghazi and Ansar al-Sharia in Darnah. They pinky promise it’s not al Qaeda though, as if that makes anything any better.
This must be a little awkward for the New York Times who just days ago published an “investigative report” which held on tightly to the lie that the attacks were spontaneously spurred by a YouTube video — in an effort to protect then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
South Carolina Representative Trey Gowdy is known for both his committed defense of truth as well as his witty sarcasm when delivering it. In his latest appearance on “On the Record,” he told Greta Van Susteren, “I think tomorrow [the State Department] is going to announce that we put a man on the moon, that the Berlin Wall fell, and that we discovered this neat little drug called penicillin.” He continued, “That’s about how far behind the intelligence in our State Department is.”
The “shocking part,” Gowdy said, was that one day after the terrorist attack, members of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s inner circle – including Clinton’s Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills and Under Secretary of Management Patrick Kennedy – “admitted” that it was Ansar al-Sharia who was responsible.
