Republican legislators and the various American filter feeders that populate YouTube’s comment section have long clung to the theory that Hillary Clinton intentionally delayed (or blocked) military reinforcements that could’ve saved the American embassy in Benghazi. Today, that theory should be over forever.
In an interview with Fox News, Select Committee on Benghazi leader Rep. Trey Gowdy admits that entire narrative—one that firmly blames then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the death of four Americans—is false. There was no way that American troops could have reached the embassy in time to save anyone. He says it himself: “Whether or not they could have gotten there in time, I don’t think there is any issue with respect to that, they couldn’t.”
Why, then do so many Republicans believe that Hillary Clinton told the military to “stand down” in Benghazi? Most likely because disingenuous GOP lawmakers and barking heads have repeated the fiction enough times for it to seem as if it must be true—true enough to be immortalized in the shitty Benghazi movie, wherein Jim from The Office is forced to stand down while Ambassador Chris Stevens is murdered.
But that fiction has been discarded even by the members of Congress whose job it is to keep the anti-Clinton Benghazi machine humming. So, this should be the last anyone hears of the “stand down” myth, except it won’t be, because the voters who truly believe it will only actually believe something if they read it on the DEPORT MEXICAN SYRIAN REFUGEE 9/11 HONKERS Facebook page.
