Eleanor Clift is a regular talking head on the "McLaughlin Group" and can be counted on to parrot the left-wing talking points of the day. However, not even I would've guessed that she'd be willing to say this.
“I’d like to point out that Ambassador Stevens was not ‘murdered,’” Clift said, using air quotes, “but died of smoke inhalation in a CIA safe room.”
Really? Follow the link to see the whole video where Clift reveals that she's apparently the last person in the world blaming the Benghazi attacks on a YouTube video. Not even Jay Carney has the chutzpah to continue to blame the video.
And she doubles down on stupid.
“I was taking issue with the sort of glib use of the word ‘murdered,’ Clift said. “I think dying of smoke inhalation in the safe room of a CIA outpost has a slightly different feeling, and my point is that it was a very chaotic event. The CIA was involved which is why there was a lot of confusion initially, and that all the questions that this special committee is raising have been asked and answered in previous investigations.”
And JFK died in an auto accident. Mary Jo Kopechne died in a tragic swimming accident.
I'm honestly perplexed why anyone would give any weight to anything this woman writes or says for the rest of her life.
