Krauthammer’s Take: Hillary Told Video Lie as ‘Body of the Ambassador Was Lying Next to Her’


While U.N. ambassador Susan Rice and White House press secretary Jay Carney were the chief recipients of Representative Trey Gowdy’s ire at today’s House hearing, Charles Krauthammer points out that the secretary of state and the president deserve similar criticism. Hillary Clinton told the same lie about the YouTube movie inciting protests in front of the American embassy in Benghazi, and she did so while standing next to the coffin of Ambassador Chris Stevens and delivering a eulogy in his honor.

Krauthammer also notes that President Obama repeated the line before the U.N. General Assembly, but that seems a more fitting venue for the regurgitation of such a lie.
