Also, Ambassador Stevens wasn’t “murdered.” (Note: never pick Eleanor Clift for a felony murder jury.)
I give Clift the generic label in the headline for the ironic parallelism. Did you catch that? I thought you would. Anyway, her spinning could put a top to shame:
ELEANOR CLIFT: I would like to point out Ambassador Stevens was not murdered. He died of smoke inhalation in the safe room in that CIA installation.
SUSAN FERRECHIO: I don’t think that’s a fact, Eleanor.
CLIFT: I think that is a fact.
FERRECHIO: I’ve heard a drastically different story from people who are also in the know about that. So, I don’t think it is –
PAT BUCHANAN: It was a terrorist attack, Eleanor. He was murdered in a terrorist attack.
She also calls the terrorist attack on the consulate an “opportunistic” attack “that grew out of that video.” (I wonder who wrote her talking points.)
Even if he died of smoke inhalation from a fire caused by a terrorist attack, he was murdered. Air quotes and all. Eleanor.
