Fox's Tantaros Pushes Debunked Benghazi Myths To Claim That Clinton Created Security Breach “For Political Reasons”

From the October 19 edition of Fox News' Outnumbered:

ANDREA TANTAROS: The largest national security breach in recent memory, where four Americans died, is no laughing matter. One that she created, by the way, for political reasons. And, Sandra, there are three phases to this scandal. There is the phase that led up to this. What was Ambassador Stevens doing in Tripoli with security that was drawn down? If this was her friend, and we know from reporting by The Weekly Standard, Stephen Hayes, he FOIA'd these emails. He knew about these cables. He'd been asking for security. Hillary didn't give it to him. Yet she sent him to Tripoli that night with no security. And by the way, there was an attack on the consulate, in Tripoli, the British Consulate and the Red Cross. They had closed both of them down in the weeks that led up to it, and Sandra, our consulate was attacked twice before that fateful night in Benghazi, twice. And the second time a hole was blown in the wall so big that 20 men could walk through. Why wasn't the president -- which I assume he was informed because that's U.S. soil -- why didn't they shut down that consulate? Why didn't they give them more security? Why was there a “stand down” order? And why did they cover it up with those ads in Pakistan and try to blame it on a video and then jail the filmmaker? There are still so many questions to the three phases of the scandal.
