Steyn: ‘How empty and dead’ were they to let Chris Stevens die for ‘Obama-Clinton fiction?’

On Hugh Hewitt’s Thursday night program, National Review columnist Mark Steyn explained why the Obama administration’s response to last September’s terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was so appalling.

“They let him die, and then told lies over his coffin,” he told fill-in host Guy Benson.

Steyn said that the late U.S. ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens was a true believer of President Barack Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s view of the Arab Spring, that it was a positive movement and was trying to make the best of it. Clinton and senior State Department officials, he said, let Stevens die, meaning that he was “sacrificed for the Obama-Clinton fiction of the Arab Spring.”

“All the players involved in this are Democrats,” Steyn said. “Chris Stevens is in fact the poster boy for the Obama-Clinton view of the Arab Spring. He’s one of their guys. I mean, as chaps like me look on it, he was in large part deluded about the nature of the Arab Spring, but he was a personally courageous and brave man who was on the front line of the Obama-Clinton narrative about the Arab Spring.”…
…“This is absolutely disgraceful. I cannot conceive of how empty and dead you have to be inside to put Ambassador Stevens through that, then leave him to die…”

Update: It’s the character, stupid

Mark Steyn has a magnificent column today on the “Benghazi Lie.”  He directs our focus to an issue more important than policy: character. The Benghazi episode reveals what he later characterizes as “depravity.” With his trademark incisiveness and wit, he eviscerates the behavior of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. The entire column demands to be read..

…The realization of what really happened in Benghazi – the story of brave men betrayed for political gain – is slowly sinking in. The MSMers suddenly on the story have to face the fact that big lies have been told. Writing like Steyn’s can only hgelp hasten the processs of America coming to terms with who (and what) we have in the White House.
