Top Dem Senator Shoots Down New York Times Benghazi YouTube Hoax


David Kilpatrick bizarrely tried to revive long discredited claims and the New York Times even more bizarrely let him to do it. These are claims that even no one in Obama Inc. is seriously putting forward anymore.

Shortly after Kilpatrick’s story ran, the State Department took action against Al Qaeda affiliated groups responsible for the Benghazi attacks. The YouTube video claim doesn’t get heard anymore. The New  York Times couldn’t have picked a worse time to run its hoax.

Even Diane Feinstein won’t try to back that nonsense.

The chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee said that key conclusions of a recent New York Times investigation into the 2012 Benghazi attack are wrong.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) rejected the Times’s conclusion that al Qaeda wasn’t responsible for the attack that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. She also took issue with the notion that the Libya strike was sparked by a U.S.-made anti-Islam video online.

“I believe that groups loosely associated with al Qaeda were” involved in the attack, she told The Hill last week. “That’s my understanding.”

She also disputed the notion that the Sept. 11, 2012, assault evolved from a protest against the video, which was widely disseminated by Islamic clerics shortly before the attack.

“It doesn’t jibe with me,” she said.

Obviously. It never made any sense that a heavy organized attack that was part of a series of timed attacks around the Middle East was momentarily thrown together over a YouTube video.

    She told the truth under duress. After all these years, there are enough Mexicans squatting in California to vote her out of office. Mexicans are Catholic and hate islamopithecines.

    California was corrupted by immigrants from other states and colonists from Mexico. Things are changing. I live here now and can attest that most people are sick and tired of extteme leftwing governance. It will take years but CA will revive soon.

    One man is worth s hundred weaklings.

      What was I thinking? CA will be a barrio soon. Northern CA will try to secede again. (The real North, above the centrally located Bay Area.)

    The NYT had better tell the truth instead of shilling if they want to survive.

    Newsweek is gone. The internet foes not explain it all or why it was one of the first ones to go. In 2009 it had the cover “We are all Socialists Now”. Unsurprisingly it failed. Time-Warner might be failing because it is too big to manage and has the wrong business strategy and all around poor management. but it does not explain it all. Part of it is that I (& people like me) refuse to buy Time Warner products,

    I would like to have a coffee table book on WW2 for example. TimeWarner use to advertise them all the time on TV. But besides all the reasons not to buy one, the clincher is I refuse to feed the Beast. Id don not like the lack of impartiality of Time magazine so why buy from Time Warner.

    Sure they might have failed anyway. But as large as they are they are failing sooner given their market capitalization and formerly good brand.

    “Charter Communications executives labeled Time Warner Cable a “turnaround project” suffering from a failed strategy as they urged Time Warner Cable shareholders to prod management to begin talks with Charter on its buyout offer.”

      The New York Times has already soid off most of its acquisitions. It’s hoping to get bought and subsidized by a lib billionaire like the Washington Post did.

        Even billionaires fall.

        The house of Krupp came to a bad end. The Fuggers although rich don’t appear to be movers or shakers nor a rich as they once were. Most people have not heard of them.

        It would be hard for a billionaire to have charities , expensive tastes and the NYT too.

    I’m looking forward to David Kirkpatrick writing a new book on the JFK assassination. I’m sure it will involve an anti Islam movie.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      The left already wrote that one. It involved a right-wing “climate of hate” that made a Communist shoot JFK.

  • Gee

    Let’s face it – the extreme leftists do not minor things such as facts ever intrude on their lives. The world is flat and they don’t care what science shows
