College Students Know Terrifyingly Little of Benghazi

Last week we gave you reason to fear for our future with a terrifying video of college students professing their undying affection to Hillary Clinton. Then, when asked about her accomplishments, those same love-struck students could not name a single one… other than something called “Benghazi.” Yep. Clinton’s one accomplishment to them… was Benghazi.

So the MRC wanted to find out what college students knew about Benghazi. Prepare to once again be horrified by the leaders of tomorrow.

Watch as these college educated young people discuss Benghazi.

Is this a bigger black mark on our education system, or on our media’s coverage of the issue?

On September 11, 2012 an Al Qaeda affiliate in Benghazi, Libya attacked the US consulate there and murdered four Americans: US Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens, embassy employee Sean Smith, and CIA contractors Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty.

Almost immediately, our government knew what had happened and why it had happened. However, for some reason (could it have been the upcoming November elections?), the White House and State Department chose to lie to the American people. The government claimed that the reason for the attack was some ridiculous YouTube video about Islam.

Over the last year and a half, the Obama administration, the State Department, and the CIA have continued to lie to the American people about what happened that night and why it happened at all.

The main stream media’s coverage of the Scandal has been absent.

The media has been complicit in whatever crimes the Obama administration has committed around this scandal, but they’ll never face prosecution. Their political preferences have led them (the media) into a disgusting partnership with the Obama administration – hiding the truth at every turn.
