Hillary Emails Haunt: Sunday’s Comic

Internal emails show Clinton got detailed intel on ‘planned’ Benghazi hit

WASHINGTON – Internal State Department emails in the aftermath of the Benghazi terror attack show then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton received detailed information indicating the strike was planned by well-trained fighters, yet her office continued to push the narrative days later that it began “spontaneously.”

The messages were among 296 emails released Friday by the State Department, in the first batch of emails to be made public from Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state. Totaling 896 pages, the emails show a series of Libya dispatches Clinton received from a confidant, as well as the barrage of messages among her and her aides after Sept. 11, 2012.

Those messages depict the rapidly changing understanding of what happened at the U.S. compound that night, and the administration’s internal struggle to settle on a public narrative.
