Krauthammer: Clinton’s Response on Benghazi Video Narrative Was ‘A Flail’
In Bret Baier’s interview with Hillary Clinton last night, he asked her, “Why [was] the State Department telling the Libyans, the Libyan ambassador, it was Ansar al-Sharia, and yet telling the American people at the same time it was this video?”
“Well, Bret, I think that you have to take both ideas at the same time. I don’t know anybody who was saying it is only the video now, but I think at the time, there was a lot of information flowing around that we were trying to assess that at least it played a part,” she responded.
“That’s known as a flail,” Charles Krauthammer said of her answer. “She had no answer to that, it was a pointed question.”
Krauthammer said we know that the talk of the video was a false narrative, and he called that response the weakest moment in her interview.
