In this video, Hillary Clinton’s campaign strikes back against the Republican muckraking campaign that has been fruitlessly attempting to frame her for the 2012 terrorist attacks at the American Embassy in Benghazi, Libya, by militants affiliated with Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). The FOX News echo chamber and congressional Republicans have seized on the Benghazi issue as a way to smear Clinton’s credentials and undermine her foreign policy experience.
It’s an atrocious politicization of a national tragedy, and the Clinton campaign has had enough. This video slams back at the House Benghazi Committee for spending $8,000 taxpayer dollars a day to orchestrate a political witch-hunt, even after 7 prior congressional investigations, 32 hearings, and 2,780 questions. Clips of FOX News are arranged to paint a disturbing picture of the way that the “controversy” has been carefully constructed for political gain. The Benghazi House Committee is a disrespect to Ambassador Stevens and the three other Americans who died in Libya on that awful day, and the Republicans should be ashamed of themselves for exploiting the incident like this.
