Yet another Republican lie (updated)
Here's what actually happened.
I've said it before -- given their record during this campaign, anything the Republicans say must be assumed to be a lie until proven otherwise.
Update: See Andrew Sullivan's analysis. More reactions here.
From the CNN report on the Libyan attack:
Clinton said, ".....This was an attack by a small and savage group, not the people or government of Libya. Everywhere Chris and his team went in Libya, in a country scarred by war and tyranny, they were hailed as friends and partners. And when the attack came yesterday, Libyans stood and fought to defend our post. Some were wounded. Libyans carried Chris' body to the hospital, and they helped rescue and lead other Americans to safety."
Libyan Prime Minister Abdurrahim el-Keib apologized "to the American people and the government, and also to the rest of the world" for the "cowardly, criminal act."
It's even possible that the murderers were Qaddhafi loyalists trying to drive a wedge between the new Libyan government and the US
Update 2: Libyans protest against terrorism.
