Rand Paul: White House Focused on Spin, Not Truth in Benghazi
On Fox News Thursday night, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) criticized the Obama administration after emails were released showing that the White House tried to spin the details of the attack in Benghazi.
“They were concerned about spin, but they really weren't concerned very much about the truth,” Paul said, pointing out that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was still blaming the attacks on a video.
Paul said that the email read like a script from a Hollywood producer.
“If you read that email, it's like what a Hollywood producer would do in saying, 'What do you want the general feeling to be from this?' And the feeling needs to be that this is not terrorism.”
Sen. Paul added that he agreed completely with Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who called for a select committee to investigate the Benghazi terrorist attack.
