Operation Hillary

The campaign to elect Hillary president in 2016 has begun. Just like a military operation, it was kicked off by a general, Wesley Clark, with an offer of free bumper stickers. Coinciding with this offer, the central command for Operation Hillary, the NY Times, began printing propaganda in an effort to clear the mud surrounding Hillary.

Much like the Russian newspaper Pravda in the days of the cold war, the NY Times ignored reality and printed its official Operation Hillary view of the Benghazi fiasco, citing an internal “investigation”: “The attack was led…by fighters who had benefited directly from NATO’s extensive air power and logistics support during the uprising against Colonel Qaddafi. And contrary to claims by some members of Congress, it was fueled in large part by anger at an American-made video denigrating Islam”.

It is incredible that the totally debunked idea of a spontaneous, video-inspired uprising is being resurrected by the NY Times. Not only have “some members of Congress” found the video blame to be false, Libyan President Mohammed Magarief and the Obama administration have both acknowledged that it was a planned terrorist attack backed by al Qaida at Benghazi. It was just reported this past week that the U.S. government is searching for an al Qaeda terrorist wanted for his role in the attack.

Nevertheless, the NY Times finds itself in the awkward position of having to explain away Hillary’s State Department attempt to blame the attack on the video. Since that attempt is well-documented, the only thing the NY Times can do is pretend it was true. It will now stick by its story and repeat it until it sticks in its readers’ heads.

The Ready for Hillary super PAC rented an email list from Hillary’s failed 2008 campaign in order to contact past supporters and get them on board. Though Hillary has not yet declared herself to be a candidate, her campaign has certainly started with her approval but first, her sullied past needs to be cleaned. The NY Times is on the job.

Here comes the next “let’s make history” presidential campaign.
