Laura Ingraham: Lying Right Out of the Gate at ABC
Laura says: U.S. Ambassador ‘Was Dragged Through the Street’ in Benghazi’
Just a reminder: The Americans who did get drug through the streets by terrorists were in Fallujah, and that happened under President Bush.
Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham restated a debunked talking point Sunday, claiming that the body of U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens was “dragged through the street” following the 2012 attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi.
“We have to not forget, we have four dead Americans,” Ingraham said during a roundtable discussion about the Benghazi attack on ABC’s This Week. “The ambassador’s body was dragged through the street. Okay? It was beyond heartbreaking and beyond infuriating.”
Stevens’ body was not dragged through the street, at least not in the way Ingraham suggests, multiple accounts and three official reviews make clear.
PolitiFact examined a similar claim in September 2013 and the facts remain the same.
