From Stephen Green:

>> We have the Secretary of State, we have our ambassador to the UN, parroting the same line about how that awful video was to blame. We have it on tape. This is a lie so easily and so instantly proven to be a big fat hairy lie, that why did Clinton bother? What are they thinking at State?

We can only guess what they were thinking. Here are a few:

• The Complicit Media will cover for us.

• Maybe nobody in Congress will notice.

• Clinton decided it was time to drive the final nail into Obama-Biden 2012.

• Rogue staffer at State said the lie! Rouge staffer!

• I did not have sexual relations with that consulate.

And then there’s my final, strangest guess. But it also might be the only one with a hint of truth to it.

• The security situation at Benghazi was so desperately cocked-up by damn near anybody who should have shown an shred of sense or even simple decency, that a big fat hairy lie is the only way to distract from the needless deaths of four Americans.

Could that really be it? Has Clinton started another bonfire, just to divert attention away from the one that’s already burning? It’s sounds impossible. But it also sounds perfectly Clintonesque. <<
