Here's a cool tidbit about Obama's Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland.

Merrick Brian Garland is the chief judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

Judicial Watch (you know who they are) was arguing a case in front of the Appeals Court back in 2013 on which Garland was sitting.

Apparently he "officially" cited that now famous "Video" as a fact for causing the Benghazi attacks !!!!


No wonder Garland is a good pick by Obama for the Supreme Court !!!

He just goes along with whatever the White House says is true.



Obama SCOTUS Pick Cited Benghazi Video Lie as Fact in JW Court Hearing


Long after it was established that the Obama administration lied about an anti-Muslim internet video sparking the riot that killed the U.S. ambassador in Libya, the president’s Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland, cited the tale as fact in a federal court hearing involving Judicial Watch. Here is an official transcript of the proceeding.

JW was arguing before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and Garland was one of the three judges on the panel. The case involves a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit requesting the release of dozens of images of Osama bin Laden’s body captured after the Al Qaeda leader was killed in a 2011 raid by U.S. Special Forces. The hearing took place on January 10, 2013, long after it had been confirmed that the president and his cohorts lied to cover up the facts surrounding the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attacks. The administration said a home-made, anti-Muslim internet video somehow ignited spontaneous riots that led to death of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, the first diplomat to be killed overseas in decades, and three other Americans. An accurate account of the violent attack, carried out by a group of approximately 150 heavily armed Islamist militia members, on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi can be found in this JW special report.


What was Garland's Point anyway?

Hmmm, that would seem to indicate he did not
have an opinion beyond the Democrats party line.

Indeed, very telling.

The problem with your premise is that the story Benghazi video "lie" was NOT, in fact, a lie.

Your bias is showing yet again X.

He shows no judgement sense at all.

No, you are being ridiculous. The video did in fact provoke rioting in the Arab world; that's the stone cold truth. An organized group used the rioting as a cover for an attack on American assets. That can happen again, and that's why the judge made the call he did. But go ahead and believe the lies if you want.

When were the riots at the Benghazi consulate?

There were no riots.

There was an attack by islamic terrorists. Nothing to do with a stupid vid.

Looks like MediaMatters has attempted a rebuttal.

Weak and funny.

They actually justify the video from statements from the leader of the group(s) that attacked the U.S.
