Daily Beast Contributor: Amb. Chris Stevens was not “Murdered” in Benghazi
Townhall.com ^ | May 12, 2014 | Michael Schaus

Posted on 05/12/2014 4:56:56 PM PDT by Kaslin

Some people on the left have a moral and mental flexibility that would put Lilia Stepanova’s actual flexibility to shame. (Did you just google that name? Kinda cool, huh?) Eleanor Clift, columnist at the Daily Beast, is still blaming some obscure YouTube video for the terrorist attack on America’s consulate in Benghazi. But, that’s not the audacious comments that have sparked outrage.

Clift, in her clinically psychopathic ways (seriously… Google the definition – I’m not making this up) declared that the American Ambassador, Chris Stevens, was not murdered… He “died of smoke inhalation”. This is like saying the people who died in Chicago last week weren’t really murdered. They were merely incapacitated by the introduction of high-velocity 9mm objects into certain life-sustaining organs.

Words matter, Eleanor. Ambassador Chris Stevens was murdered. And your grasp of common decency seems precarious at best. Hillary Clinton might have suggested that the circumstances leading to Steven’s death don’t really matter, but you have reached a new level of heartless politicking.

Correct. Technically, it was a gay bashing.

Murderers created the smoke that allegedly killed Stevens, but he was not murdered. Such perfect logic.

The LORD rebuke you, Clift.

The ROP must have known who he was as they did not cut his head off.

its clear that the talking point that he was not murdered was floated out in preparation for the hearings.

Technically, this is true. Stevens wasn’t murdered in Benghazi. He was murdered in the White House; he succombed to the act of murder in the geographical location of Benghazi.

We watched Eleanor Clift for years, on the McLaughlin Report. She always entered that battle of wits unarmede Judging by these comments, she hasn’t become any better armed as the years have passed.

When Clinton was president, the joke was that he had a Colonoscopy and they found Eleanor Clift’s apartment. Now she’s shilling for Hillary.

Proof? I’d really like to see it. I’m not doubting you as I know you to be honest. I’d just like proof to pass along.

It has been debunked a hundred times here. One more time.

The pic is posted on this page on June 9th 2012. How is that possible?

The pic is posted on this page on April 27th 2012. How is that possible?

The pic is posted on this page on August 24th 2009. How is that possible?

If you research it you will find that the pic is attributed to the Argentinian military from some time in the '80s.

The moral reasoning process in the prog mind:

Because abortion.
Because Obama.
Because whatever Obama says.
Chris Stevens was not murdered.

a more accurate description is kidnapped and assasinated.

Then I guess that some of the people in the Twin Towers on 9/11/01 weren’t murdered in a terrorist attacked they died committing suicide from jumping out windows?

Those links and what they infer are terrible. The stories attributed to the pictures are very disturbing.

That picture has nothing to do with any of those stories whether the stories are true or not. The point is that that one pic (not pictures) has been used as propaganda for years. The greater point is that the pic can’t possibly be of Amb. Stevens and have been posted as much as three years prior to his death.

Another analogy would be: The people who jumped from the Twin Towers voluntarily committed suicide due to their mental state.
