Skip to comments.Clinton: Facebook and Twitter are Not Evidence
Posted on 10/24/2012 4:50:20 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton downplayed the suggestion that emails implicating an Al Qaeda-linked group in the attack on the American embassy in Benghazi were proof of terrorist involvement, saying their claims of responsibility on Facebook and Twitter were not "evidence."
The recently obtained emails, which raise questions about whether the White House was trying to cover up the nature of the attack, show that the State Department told administration officials and the FBI within two hours of the attack on the consulate that the terrorist group Ansar al Sharia had claimed responsibility.
"These emails make clear that your Administration knew within two hours of the attack that it was a terrorist act and that Ansar al-Sharia, a Libyan militant group with links to Al-Qaeda, had claimed responsibility for it," Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) wrote in a letter to President Obama. "This latest revelation only adds to the confusion surrounding what you and your Administration knew about the attacks in Benghazi, when you knew it, and why you responded to those tragic events in the ways that you did.
"The American people have the right to know what information your Administration was receiving about the attacks in Benghazi once they began, when you received it, how you reacted to it, and why you and other members of your Administration continued for days after the attack to speak about it in ways that increasingly seem at odds with intelligence and other reporting that you had available to you, they wrote. We urge you to address the American people directly on these and other vital questions that still surround the tragic murder of our fellow citizens last month in Libya."

Already building your line of defense, Hillary?
Good, you’ll need it.
But a YouTube video caused everything!
Alright then, good enough for me. Let’s move on.
It’s only evidence if it’s right wing comments or videos on youtube from Christian film makers.
Looks like a few of us will be making meme photos in the near future.
Hillary is such a dumb beaver..Hey Hill, I got news for you..when Al Qaeda commits terrorist attacks the majority of the time they post the info ONLINE..This is probably the same woman who believed that her hubby’s bodily fluids on Lewinsky’s dress wasn’t “Evidence” either
what a coverup
Even if this argument was plausible, it doesn’t change the fact there was no justification for all of that declaration that it was just a spontaneous protest that got out of hand over a video. That still has no credible explanation.
But if it’s on Youtube (like the film) it must be true, right Madame Foggy Bottom?
A hundred guys with mortars, rockets, and heavy machine guns attacking your embassy is evidence of a terrorist attack. The seven hour fire-fight is evidence of a terrorist attack.
The Al Qaeda claim of responsibility is just icing on the cake. Parsing words isn’t going to make this go away.
Yes, they are.
Either way, it shows they were pretty clueless and an American ambassador has been killed in the line of duty, the first time us diplomat killed in the line of duty since 1979. The last one was Adolph Dubs who was kidnapped and shot by terrorists in Afghanistan who were almost certainly taking orders from the Soviet Union
Was the live drone video of the attack on Facebook and Twitter Hillary? Is that why you did not believe your lying eyes?
No but if you look on the Library table you will find the evidence right under the Rose Law Firm’s billing records.
They're not PROOF, but they're EVIDENCE.
“But a YouTube video caused everything!”
Step down, Hillary. You’re a disgrace.
IIRC, Iranian revolutionaries used Twitter a few years ago.
