Disgusting: Katty Kay Blames Ambassador Stevens For Own Death, Lets Hillary Off Hook
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

In a disgusting display of just how far the liberal media will go to preserve Hillary Clinton's presidential prospects, Katty Kay has blamed Ambassador Chris Stevens for his own death, while letting Hillary off the hook.

On today's Morning Joe, the BBC's Kay called the newly-released Senate report on the Benghazi attack "sad" because it showed that Stevens was "fallible." Kay claimed that "he didn't ask for and even rejected some of the security he might have had." This flies in the face of the report's findings that "State, then under Hillary Clinton, refused requests to boost security despite warnings from the CIA and its own staff about the danger of militant attacks."

From what they were saying on C-SPAN this morning the report indicates that Steven’s turned down offers of more security because he didnt liked the way they looked to locals.

White male dead. What is important is getting a butchy liberal woman president. As Colonel West said “marketing gimmick.”

I heard last night (Fox) that the State Department had turned down his requests for additional security. The military offered additional security and he turned that down because it would have made State look bad i.e. your own people turn you down and you have to get it from someone else. If true, he made a political decision to save State’s face .... cost him big time.

She’s a British “journalist” (BBC). She co-authored a book with Claire Shipman, (Mrs. Jay Carney). In other words a media mouthpiece for all things progressive.

If that were anywhere CLOSE to being true, they would have been using this as an excuse from day one!

It just shows that given enough time they can come up with another excuse for their failure.

One could still argue that it shouldn't have been Stevens call and that someone above him had the job to make sure he was protected, and failed.

Is it not rather common to blame the dead? After all they cannot testify for themselves.

Well the Dems are stuck. They have nobody else to run except the Hildebeast. I was trying to think of somebody last night and could not come up with even one name. The left and the MSM will defend her til the cows come home.

I swear I read right after this that there were requests for added security but for some reason they couldn’t afford it.

Well, I cut her some slack.

After all, Ambassador Stevens dressed like a TOTAL SLUT.

You are correct. They were trying to blame the sequester or spending cuts or some such nonsense. They are all over the map with cover-up stories that don’t match.

Even if Stevens could make the call, why would he? You are an ambassador in the most dangerous part of the planet and you refuse security?

This is just blaming the dead guy who can’t defend himself.

If Stevens had lived I bet he would be furious
