The Last Clinton Lie Makes a Difference

Every comment I've read from the Lefty trolls has been, "Boy, Hillary sure made those Republicans look bad," or some variation (not quite as nicely worded) of that theme. Yet looking at that comment in its totality, the second sentence kind of nullified the first. "What difference does it make...?" and "Now we just have to figure out what happened...." Duh, yes! That's why we're asking! Or are y'all just going to quietly "figure it out" and stop it from happening again without ever informing Americans, first, what happened, and second, how we'll stop it from happening again? All in all, I thought it a very poor lie with absolutely no logic to it--if Sen. Johnson didn't follow up, his mind must have been boggled by the idiocy of it.

Let’s roll the tape:

"With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest, or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and to do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator."

It was a dazzling play, instantly destined to enter the lore of political hardball and be studied and dissected for decades.
