First we were told Benghazi was all about a YouTube video. Then we were told it didn’t matter. Then we were told that they had addressed the issue and it was old news. The one thing we were never told was the truth.
Now leaked documents from former House Leader Nancy Pelosi show the Democrats had a set of talking points which included characterizing questions about Benghazi as a conspiracy theory.
The Daily Caller reports:
Pelosi Docs Show Dems Trying Hard To Cast Benghazi As A ‘Conspiracy Theory’
New documents released from Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi’s computer by purported hacker Guccifer 2.0, reveal democratic talking points to counter Republican Benghazi attacks.
The document casts the controversy surrounding Benghazi as “Legitimate outrage over the deaths of American diplomats mixed with partisanship.” The document also admits that then Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice “gave incorrect information on television” in the immediate aftermath of the attack.
The document’s central talking points revolve around ignoring the facts revealed by congressional investigations, and instead on rhetorical flourishes that emphasize patriotism.
The first talking point focuses solely on the importance of having diplomats in dangerous places, and makes no mention of the specific circumstances of Benghazi…
The second talking point paints any attempt at calling for accountability as “pandering to conspiracy theorists.”
Benghazi is a tragedy, not a scandal. At this point, most public discussion is pandering to conspiracy theorists or harping on the death of an American ambassador to score political points.
Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Susan Rice and everyone else in the Obama administration still have to answer for what happened in Benghazi.
They lied about what happened, sent an innocent YouTube user to jail, and were aided by a complicit media.
