“The ambassador and his team were desperate for help,” Hillary Clinton dramatically told the Select Committee on Benghazi today, recalling not the terrorist attack on the diplomatic compound in Benghazi but violent demonstrations in Tunisia.

Why was Clinton recalling the unrest in Tunisia? Because of that darn YouTube video that she and President Obama blamed for the “spontaneous” attack that killed four Americans. It just will not go away, so there must be some way to integrate it into the administration’s narrative.
Clinton recounted Tunisia as some sort of success story to counterbalance the debacle in Libya: “I called the president, President Marzouki…I said, Mr. President, please deploy your presidential guard, at least show that Tunisia will stand with the United States against these protestors over this inflammatory video. To his great credit and to my great relief, that is exactly what he did.”
More answers like that, Hillary. What a riveting story. #Tunisia

#BenghaziCommittee Good to know she put it all out there in Tunisia. Too bad Stevens didn't get the Ambassador post in Tunisia.
