Rep. Michele Bachmann Creates New Benghazi Conspiracy Theory (Video)
Michael Morrell, former deputy director of the CIA, gave his testimony yesterday at a House committee hearing on the Benghazi terrorist attack in 2012.
Morrell, who used to give morning briefings to President George W. Bush before moving to the CIA, stated that he made changes to the first Benghazi memo based upon what intelligence analysts knew at the time of the attack.
According to Crooks and Liars.com, Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., told "The O'Reilly Factor" last night that Morrell's memo and information came from "press accounts written by the Islamist press," but failed to prove her claim (video below).
"We still don't have answers from Secretary of State Clinton or, frankly, from the President of the United States," added Bachmann.
However, in reality, both Clinton and Obama have given multiple statements regarding the Benghazi attack. Clinton even testified in front of Congress over a year ago, noted The Guardian.
Bachmann also claimed that Morrell "took the fall" for Obama and Clinton but failed to prove that claim.
During an interview with the conspiracy website WorldNet Daily, Bachmann made the same claim again without any proof.
“If Hillary becomes the next president, he can safely become the next director of the CIA,” Bachmann stated. “That’s what this is all about.”
“They don’t care about Obama now,” Bachmann said. “The more important thing is making sure it preserves the way for Hillary, because Democrats can’t afford to be exposed for what they are: failures on foreign policy, defense and intelligence. We have never had a bigger failure than under the Obama administration in any of those areas.”
Bachmann failed to mentioned the Sept. 11 attack under President George W. Bush, two wars started by Bush, and the failure of Bush to catch Bin Laden.
