McLaughlin Group‘s Eleanor Clift : ‘Ambassador Stevens Wasn’t Murdered’
Mediaite ^ | May 11, 2014 | Evan McMurry

Posted on 05/11/2014 10:24:48 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Daily Beast columnist Eleanor Clift said on Sunday’s The McLaughlin Group that late U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, who was killed the night of the Benghazi attacks, had not been murdered but had died from “smoke inhalation.”

“I’d like to point out that Ambassador Stevens was not ‘murdered,’” Clift said, using air quotes, “but died of smoke inhalation in a CIA safe room.”

This did not land well. “It was a terrorist attack, Eleanor,” panelist-for-life Pat Buchanan said. “He was murdered in a terrorist attack.”

Clift responded that it was an opportunistic terrorist attack inflamed by the anti-Muslim video, the blaming of which has caused so much trouble. “It was still a CIA [outpost],” Clift said. “If you’re going to put somebody on trial, put David Petraeus on trial, not Hillary Clinton.”

Host John McLaughlin finally stopped the discussion, saying “We’re going to be returning to this subject, I’m sure, repeatedly over the next six months.” Promise?

So based on that theory, Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley and Kennedy all died of lead poisoning.

Well, you could add Theodore Roosevelt to the list too....from his gunshot wound, the bullet being lodged, and issues later on that eventually killed him.

She’s made quite a career of being a buck-toothed, liberal moron. That doesn’t speak well for the “journalist” class now does it?

We saw it. It was insanity. Pat Buchanan was agog. McLaughlin sputtered. My kids said, ‘pssht! Yeah! and the gunshot wound victim didn’t die from being shot, he died of blood loss’.

and I guess Stevens wasn’t sodomized and castrated and drug thru the streets either, it was just the belt on his pants broke while he was being ‘helped’?

What higher education mills do these idiots come from?

Since Slick Willie’s embarrassing quibbling and hair-splitting over the word “is” and “the definition of sex”, Democrats seem obliged to make similar horse’s hind-sections out of themselves—trying to solve whatever problem a fellow Democrat has got him/herself into by attempting to ‘square a circle’ with fatuous reasoning.

Here’s an idea Eleanor, how about we burn your house down and see what happens..if you die from smoke inhalation we can just say you died of natural causes sound like a plan

The 1970s Wideworld of Sports would have taken a guy like Theodore, after his presidency, and featured him weekly on safaris, wild west camping expeditions, and Amazon River cruises. He was a nut....but he was the kind of nut that you’d want to camp with or going hunting with.

Wow, she’s a bit behind on her talking points subscription, isn’t she? Even the Obamoids are admitting now that it really was a terrorist attack after all.

I am afraid that account is terribly wrong. He wasn't found in a ditch he was found in the consulate and there is video of it. He was taken to a hospital and a doctor examined him and found he had died of smoke inhalation. Which isn't surprising since he was in the safe room for three to four hours while the building burned. The surprising part is that he lived that long and was alive when found. But only for a few minutes.

It only took about thirty minutes for Sean Smith to die of smoke inhalation in the same room. He was found by the rescue team from the CIA annex. They looked but couldn't find Amb. Stevens as the building was still burning, full of smoke and there was still an assault ongoing at that time.

Here is a real account given by Dr. Charles R. Roots. In it he makes no mention of being Amb. Stevens cousin which is odd if he really is.

That e-mail story smells like ... an e-mail story.

I think Eleanor doth protest too much. She's doing this as a peremptory salvation for Hillary, which indicates Hillary believes there's a difference to be made to her advantage if Ambassador Stevens will not have been deemed to have been murdered by Hillary's complicity in the origins and in-progress decisions made and enacted surrounding 9/11/12, as disclosures unfold in the select committee.

Given her past associations, Hillary realizes there's Hell To Pay! regarding her earlier 9/11-related decisions, too. (H/t: Barb O)

When he resigned from Sec Navy and asked to join Army they said he could be a Colonel. He said no but would like to learn from someone as a Lieutenant Colonel. So he served under Leonard Wood.

There isn’t any shaming Clift. There isn’t any condemning and ostracizing her like a Don Sterling for her rabid lap-dog allegiance to evil in its purist form.

Within that haggard wrinkled form beats a heart polluted by bile and a withered soul and we will just have to wait until the evil consumes her entirely.

We will be seeing a steady parade of old Clintonoids slithering out of old rotten logs as H*****y’s ascendency to the throne draws closer. Eleanor Cleft isn’t the first, and she surely won’t be the last.

I visited TR’s home on Long Island once. Near one of the back doors there was a small gun case. In it was a .30 caliber rifle with a coke can sized suppressor on it. He had it there so his young boys could shoot river rats early in the morning without bothering the neighbors. True story

She has a point. The 9/11 victims weren’t murdered either. Most of them died in an explosion and resulting building fire, and others suffered a bad fall.

Eleanor Clift is 74 years old.

The late actor, Montgomery Clift was her ex-brother-in-law.

He was nuttier than a fruit cake, too. In fact, he was an open fruit-cake.

Eleanor Clift was a routine fixture in the Cleveland Plain Dealer for years. She never had an original idea, feeding off the coattails of her husband liberal atheist columnist Tom Brazaitis. Once he died she has been mailing in reruns for the last decade and making a fool of herself generally.
