Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) spoke at a town hall meeting on Wednesday evening dropped a bombshell about former Secretary Hillary Clinton. According to Kinzinger, Clinton shouted him down for suggesting that the attacks that occurred on September 11, 2012 in Benghazi, Libya were the result of Islamic terrorists.
“Two days after this attack we were in a briefing with Hillary Clinton and she screamed at a member of Congress who’d dare suggest that this was a terrorist attack,” Kinzinger said.
Kinzinger then added, “Now we find out that while it was happening they knew it was a terrorist attack.”
In the video, Kinzinger doesn’t point to any source for his claims. However, we do know from various people that many in the administration did know that the attacks in Benghazi were jihadist terrorist attacks.
Former CIA Director, General David Petraeus told Congress that Benghazi was a terrorist attack “almost instantly.” The CIA, apparently knew it as well. The White House knew it was a terrorist attack within two hours, according to emails from the State Department. AFRICOM General Carter Ham said he knew it was a terror attack.
So why the cover-up? Why the manipulating of talking points? Why was the anti-Islam video and its creator used as the scapegoat? The truth is sometimes hard to swallow, but I think Dean Garrison laid out one of the best scenarios of what really took place in Benghazi.
The question now remains, will the Senate call Hillary Clinton back to answer these charges as Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) said, or will they choose to ignore these facts and exclaim as Clinton did, “What difference does it make?”
