Baier to Clinton: Where Was President Through Benghazi Attack?
Bret Baier tonight pressed Hillary Clinton on the Benghazi terror attack.
Baier asked Clinton if she stands by her statement that she didn’t know of any reports that contradicted Ambassador Susan Rice’s talking points on TV shows following the Benghazi attack.
“I do, Bret,” she said. “This was the fog of war.”
Clinton said that her assessment of the situation “careened” from whether a YouTube video had something to do with the attack or nothing to do with it. She said that the intelligence community at the time said the attack in Benghazi was a spontaneous protest.
“Do you know where the president was through the attack?” Baier asked.
“The president was in the White House. The president was in the Oval Office when I got word of the attack, and I called the White House asking for National Security Advisor Donilon," she told him.
