Clift said on Sunday’s The McLaughlin Group that late U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, who was killed the night of the 9/11/12 Benghazi attacks, had not been murdered but had died from “smoke inhalation.”
“I’d like to point out that Ambassador Stevens was not ‘murdered, but died of smoke inhalation in a CIA safe room.”It was so obvious a terrorist attack that fellow panelist Pat Buchanan didn't blame it on the Jews, who fired back at Clift,
“It was a terrorist attack, Eleanor. He was murdered in a terrorist attack.”But Eleanor "Rodham" Clift insisted Benghazi was an “opportunistic terrorist attack” with an anti-Muslim video as its catalyst. In addition, she noted earlier that the Benghazi issue “animates the right-wing of the Republican party.”
“It’s still a CIA [outpost],” Clift added. “And if you’re going to put people on trial, we should put David Petraeus on trial, not Hillary Clinton.”I think these claims are even extreme for Eleanor Clift.
