Congressman Trey Gowdy delivers 5-minute takedown of The NY Times' Benghazi Report (Video)Topics: Political News and commentaries
South Carolina GOP Congressman Trey Gowdy decimated The New York Times' recent coverage of Benghazi in a five-minute epic rant Monday on Fox News' "On The Record." Gowdy began by 'congratulating' the NYT for taking "15 months to figure out how to spell 'Benghazi,'" and went on to rip the paper for its report that the attack was prompted by an anti-Islamic video, a theory that has been disproved and discredited for over a year.
Via BizPac (emphasis added):
[...] After listing the major points The Times got wrong in its "exhaustive" investigative report, Gowdy asked the question many House Republicans have been asking: "Why were we even there? Why was Chris Stevens in Benghazi that night?"Here's the takedown:
The congressman suggested that The Times article was merely an attempt to re-write history and pave the way for a Hillary Clinton presidency.
"I want you to read it six times and tell me if you can tell who the secretary of state was when Benghazi happened" he said. "Because her name wasn't mentioned a single, solitary time in this exhaustive New York Times piece -- not once."
Gowdy's points about the translating, the timing, and the testimony of our people on the ground speaks volumes about the truth about what actually happened there and thoroughly debunks the NYT story, not to mention the fact that the attack on the credibility of the NYT's 'story' is bi-partisan.
