The Unfolding Benghazi Story Continues to Contradict the Administration’s Initial Reaction

Last night at Michelle’s place I had an update to the Obama administration’s ever-evolving story on the Benghazi attack in Libya. I just ran across yet another contradiction.

Here’s Hillary Clinton the day after the attack:

And when the attack came yesterday, Libyans stood and fought to defend our post. Some were wounded. Libyans carried Chris’ body to the hospital, and they helped rescue and lead other Americans to safety.

And this from a story yesterday:

Also it was revealed that former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods died from a mortar attack and that officials still do not know how Stevens, who was suffering from severe smoke inhalation, made it from the compound to the hospital.

Ask Hillary… she seems to know.

It was reiterated later in the same story:

Stevens was not seen by the security team again until his body was delivered to the airport, officials said, and they still do know how he reached the Libyan hospital where attempts were made to treat him.

Meanwhile, Jay Carney hasn’t had a televised press conference in over two weeks, Hillary won’t allow an interview, Obama is hiding behind Big Bird, The View and Nickelodeon, and Biden hasn’t had a sit-down interview for five months. These guys are trying to run out the clock until the election. The problem for them is that the “run out the clock” strategy only works if you’re already ahead, which they’re not.
