Rohrabacher Challenges Clinton on Anti-Islamic Video: 'Isn't It Disconcerting That the Only Person in Prison Is the Filmmaker?'
During questioning from Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.), Hillary Clinton addressed whether State Department officials were watching the Benghazi attack play out on video surveillance.
She said, “There was no monitor, there was no real time, we got the surveillance videos some weeks later.”
She also delved into the fact that blame for the attack was originally placed on an anti-Islam video. Rohrabacher asked the secretary whether she informed the president first that the attack was the result of protests about an anti-Islamic video, or whether it was a coordinated terrorist attack.
"We all remember what the emphasis was," he said. "Over and over it was repeated that we had enraged the Islamic terrorists [...] which by the way, what does that do? [...] That means we're at fault..."
Rohrabacher continued, saying, "The only people I know who are in jail right now is the filmmaker. Isn't that disconcerting?"
“I want to be clear that of course it was a terrorist attack. The very next day, I called it an attack,” Clinton said.
