Video: Jake Tapper Demolishes State Department 'Lies One, Two and Three'

Credit where it's due. CNN's Jake Tapper addressed this controversy on his program yesterday, and didn't beat around the bush. He correctly accused the Obama State Department of lying repeatedly, succinctly and clearly enumerating their untruths one by one. He also insisted that the matter is not closed, demanding that those responsible be identified. Via the Free Beacon, bravo:

For what it's worth, the State Department says it has run into a brick wall in attempting to determine who ordered the video deletion, and therefore won't be pursuing the issue any further. That's another lie, of course. And while we're on the subject of that agency, here's former Secretary of State Madeline Albright playing insultingly feeble defense for Hillary Clinton over her national security-compromising email scandal:

"She has said she made a mistake, and nobody is going to die as a result of anything that happened on e-mails."

Not only is this a pathetically low bar for determining the seriousness of a scandal or crime (under the same logic, Watergate should have been shrugged off as non-lethal), does Albright realize that the mishandling and leakage of top secret and 'above top secret' intelligence can absolutely cost lives?  What a breathtakingly ignorant statement.
