Harry Reid's statement on the Benghazi select committee has a Koch reference in the 2nd sentence. pic.twitter.com/llHsRqK5Ua— Kate Nocera (@KateNocera) May 2, 2014
I'll leave you with this mash-up of various administration officials invoking the infamous online video over the course of several weeks (via Grabien):
Not all of those references were specifically about Benghazi, but that false linkage was made repeatedly -- despite the fact that it contradicted the CIA's assessment (confirmed here), the experiences of our people on the ground in Libya and at AFRICOM, and Foggy Bottom's almost-immediate conclusions. How did that inaccurate connection creep into the White House's talking points (and remain there) days after the fact?
