In her recent testimony before Congress, Hillary Clinton pounded the desk and ask, “Why is it important if the attack on our embassy was due to a revolt against a video or some guys walking down the street who just decided to kill some Americans?”

Neither scenario is correct. It was a well-planned, orchestrated attack carried out by a terrorist organization. Apparently she felt going on the offensive would divert attention away from the fact that the American people were lied to.

Why is it important to tell the truth about what really happened? Simple. If you lie about what happened you can’t be trusted on this or any other issue. However, some of her supporters and those in the far-left media are apparently more concerned with protecting her than providing the truth to the American people.
