Columnist Charles Krauthammer stated that while “They knew it was a terror attack.” “We’re living in an age where what you say and its relation with the facts is completely irrelevant” while discussing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s testimony before the Benghazi Select Committee on Thursday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel.
Krauthammer said, [relevant remarks begin around 8:30] “They knew it was a terror attack. They got it from Gregory Hicks, who was on the ground in Tripoli, who told them that. He ended up demoted in the State Department for having transgressed against the secretary. And yet, they go ahead, they put Susan Rice on that weekend, and tell a tale that is completely false. Spontaneous demonstration, out of control, et cetera, of the video. I think that’s where the emphasis ought to be.”
He added, “We’re not going to get the contradictions. We’re not going to get the facts. We’re not going to get the real story underlying it. We’re living in an age where what you say and its relation with the facts is completely irrelevant, as we see in the presidential campaign, and it’s carrying over into the hearings.”
