INVESTOR’S BUSINESS DAILY: Clinton Emails: It Looks Like She Was An Architect Of The Benghazi Lie.

On Sept. 16, 2012, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice went on five Sunday TV news shows to explain why a few days earlier attacks on U.S. State Department facilities in Benghazi, Libya, killed four Americans, including our ambassador. It was all just a demonstration provoked by an Internet video that got out of hand, Rice said.

It was a cover-up, of course. Rice was pushing in a re-election year a fiction that the administration believed would do the least amount of damage to President Obama’s campaign.
The administration couldn’t allow itself to admit that things were going poorly in the Middle East after it had been saying progress was being made.

Clinton herself went with the story even though she knew it wasn’t true. But was she merely a cog in the conspiracy to cover up the truth, or one of its planners?
An email from a batch released Monday strongly suggests she was an architect.

Her schedule, the Washington Examiner has reported, shows that Clinton met with Rice in Clinton’s office from 9:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Sept. 14, 2012 — two days before Rice misled the American people.

The emailed schedule shows only that a meeting with Rice was planned. No subject was referenced. But a previously released Sept. 14, 2012, email that White House aide Ben Rhodes sent to several high-ranking administration staffers had the subject line: “RE: PREP Call with Susan: Saturday at 4:00 p.m. ET.”

At that prep session, Rice was told “to underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy.”
Was this narrative concocted that morning when Clinton and Rice met?

What difference, at this point, does it make?
