Moreover, Kirkpatrick makes no mention of Jamal even though his own newspaper reported on the Jamal network and Benghazi. If Kirkpatrick believes that these ties have been debunked, then he needs to explain why. The Jamal network’s role in Benghazi is enough, by itself, to disprove Kirkpatrick’s theory of the events – that only “local” actors were responsible for the deaths of four Americans, including a brave ambassador.
In the end, Hounshell’s discussion of Benghazi is a welcome sign. It shows that some are still willing to weigh and discuss the actual evidence about what happened in Benghazi – not just the politics of its aftermath.
Hounshell says that “there will always be some who wonder if we simply haven’t looked hard enough” for evidence of al Qaeda’s ties to the Benghazi attack.
