During hours of questioning before the House Select Committee on Benghazi, Hillary Clinton decided to break up the monotony of having to testify about four Americans killed in a terrorist attack under her watch, with a little comedy routine.
Because, what doesn’t scream hilarity about a situation where people are trying to find out why you ignored security requests for a man who was eventually killed?
But Clinton, ever the optimist, found a little ray of humor in Stevens’ dire situation, cracking wise about his “entrepreneurial spirit” in trying to obtain security items at a discount for his embassy, including barricades.
Via the Free Beacon:
The former secretary of state applauded Stevens’ frugality and “entrepreneurial spirit” for attempting to buy more security tools on the cheap. At the time the British embassy in Libya was closing its doors due to the increasingly unstable situation in the country, the British were having a “fire sale” of all of their equipment. Stevens sent in an email that he would like to pick up a few items from the embassy, including barricades.
“Well, I think that showed their entrepreneurial spirit, congresswoman, and I applaud them for it,” Clinton said.
Rep. Susan Brooks (R., Ind.) said that Stevens did not feel the compound had received enough physical security, and this email may have been an attempt to secure the facility for himself and all other State employees.
“One of the great attributes Chris Stevens had was a great sense of humor and I just see him smiling as he is typing this because it is clearly in response to the email down below picking up ‘fire sale’ items from the Brits,” Clinton said.
Look at the body language on Clinton as she explains the joke (the head-bobbing being an especially nice trait):
Yes, Stevens was laughing and smiling about having to cobble together security that he wasn’t getting from the Obama administration. He wasn’t desperately trying to protect his own life and the lives of others, he was simply trying his hand at extreme couponing for barricades.
