“What has been called the ‘Benghazi scandal’ by a chorus” of right wing voices “is better described as the Benghazi hoax,” David Brock, a conservative turned liberal, writes in a short, new ebook.
Brock, the founder of Media Matters, tells Maggie Haberman in Politico that The Benghazi Hoax is not intended as a defense of Hillary Clinton, who ran the State Department when the ill-protected U.S. compound in Libya was overrun by terrorists last year. Then Brock seems to spend most of the interview doing just that.
“Rand Paul, who may run for president, said that Benghazi was a disqualifier for Secretary Clinton for higher office,” Brock says. “And, you know, I mean, that’s baloney.”
