During the presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton’s alleged wrongdoings were all over the media. And Fox News made it’s mission to hype the investigation. From her use of a private email server to the Benghazi attacks, Clinton was the subject of countless Fox News headlines proclaiming she can’t be trusted. Now that the election is over, they are finally admitting the Benghazi investigation was a complete hoax.
Here’s how Fox News initially reported the story:
“On the night of Sept. 11, a large group of men rushed into the diplomatic compound in Benghazi, firing guns and setting fires. Visiting Ambassador Stevens and computer specialist Sean Smith were killed despite taking cover in a safe room. Moments later a mortar fire hit the CIA roof nearby, killing security contractors Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.”
Within hours of the attack, Republicans seized the opportunity and immediately decided to politicize the tragedy, blaming Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration for allegedly ignoring warning signs of the attacks and not sending more security and armed forces to Benghazi.
They spent millions of taxpayer dollars creating a false case against Clinton with the implicit intent to destroy her credibility and her chances of becoming president. And they had Fox News to spread their lies. Sadly, they succeeded.
But the latest Benghazi report has cleared Clinton of any wrongdoing. Upon receiving the report, Fox host Shepard Smith announced what we all knew to be true:
“The House committee investigating the deadly terror attack in Benghazi today released its report. After a two-year, $7 million investigation the eighth investigation to date, the authors of the report make no new accusations and provide no new evidence of wrongdoing against the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”
Smith continues with a quote from the investigation report:
“Despite President Obama and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta’s clear orders to deploy military assets, nothing was sent to Benghazi and nothing was en route to Libya at the time the last two Americans were killed almost eight hours after the attack began. The military could not have done anything differently to save the lives of the four Americans killed in the attack.”
