Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly basted California congressman Rep. Adam Schiff on Thursday, demanding that the Democrat explain the Obama administration’s changing stories over the 2011 attack on the U.S. facility in Benghazi that killed four Americans, including the ambassador to Libya.
The fireworks flew as Kelly interviewed Schiff about a letter sent by three Republican senators to President Obama in the wake of Obama’s Super Bowl interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly seeking answers to questions about security at the facility, the role of organized terror in the attack and the administration’s attempt to blame the attack on a spontaneous demonstration against an anti-Muslim movie no one’s seen.
Schiff, who alternated between condescending and combative, tried to blame the controversy on “conspiracy theories” being pushed by Obama’s political opponents.
Kelly was having none of it.
“There’s no conspiracy theory, there’s just unanswered questions,” she said. “Four Americans are dead, sir.”
If the American media were interested in doing its real job, instead of covering for the administration and trying to boost former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s chances of being the next Democrat in the White House, every Benghazi interview would look like this.
