Hypocrisy Alert: Hillary Defends an Ambassador
"To see the White House even hesitate to defend a diplomat is deeply troubling."
Hillary Clinton, who left Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans to die in the terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi in 2012, slammed President Donald Trump for what she perceived as failing to defend a U.S. diplomat. Former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul “is a patriot who has spent his career standing up for America,” Clinton tweeted. “To see the White House even hesitate to defend a diplomat is deeply troubling.”
So what’s she talking about? According to The Daily Caller, McFaul “was among the group of American officials that Russia sought to question in connection with a fraudulent scheme to launder hundreds of millions of dollars out of Russia to help fund Hillary Clinton’s campaign.” No wonder Clinton wants to defend him, but the Trump administration has been noncommittal.
As we noted in setting up the story, the irony and hypocrisy is thick. Former U.S. Army Ranger and CIA security contractor Kris Paronto, a survivor of the Benghazi attack, was livid. “Are you f'n kidding me @HillaryClinton ?!!!” he tweeted in response. “You left Ambassador Stevens and us to die in Benghazi then spewed lie after lie to the family members of my dead teammates and to the world to cover it up and now you have the nerve to talk about defending diplomats?! You are disgusting!”
Indeed, Clinton, along with Barack Obama and his other lackeys, insisted for weeks that the Benghazi attack was due to a YouTube video rather than a coordinated anti-U.S. jihadi attack. Why the lies? To cover up for Clinton’s malfeasance in denying security upgrades. And that was after she and Obama made a hash out of Libya along with the rest of the Middle East. The Clinton modus operandi for 30 years has been to attack opponents for what they themselves do, so this may be rank hypocrisy but we’re not the least bit surprised.
