Ultra conservative political consultant Karl Rove and his super-PAC, America Crossroads, released a video accusing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of giving false information to the public during the Benghazi attacks.
The Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. embassy in Libya has been investigated a thousand times with internal review boards and Congressional hearings, all because U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice let on that a viral anti-Islam internet video was the cause of a spontaneous protest. The attacks were not a spontaneous protest, but rather an anti-American attack that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens.
Rove's video accuses Clinton of knowing the attack was terrorism, but still pushing the “internet video” explanation. It focuses on the testimony of Deputy Chief of Mission Gregory Hicks to Congress on Wednesday, who explained in his testimony that the video was unrelated to the attacks — a fact the public and Congress was made well aware of eight months ago.
Nevertheless, ultra conservative voices such as Rove's keep reiterating this blunder in hopes that their mudslinging will accidentally shed some light on a greater controversy. So far, eight hearings, hundreds of documents, and dozens of testimonies later, they have come up empty handed, unable to uncover any greater controversy the administration has not already made public in its internal accountability reports sent to Congress.
Now, Rove and Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.) are turning the media in order to compel Clinton to testify again before Congress about Benghazi, which is less to find truth about Benghazi and more to slander the Democratic front-runner for the 2016 presidential election.
