Ann Althouse picks up on a Think Progress post — using both words extremely loosely — ripping Sen. Paul for having the unmitigated gall to ask Hillary Clinton a question about foreign affairs.

“GOP Senator Pushes Gun-Running Conspiracy Theory During Benghazi Hearing.”

That’s the way they put it over at Think Progress. I’ve watched the video. Rand Paul asks a question. It seems histrionic to equate asking a question with pushing a conspiracy theory, and the truth is Hillary Clinton’s answer has the ring of… lying.

Paul’s question was pretty straightforward: Is the US running guns to the Syrian opposition through Turkey? You’d think a Secretary of State would be able to answer that definitively, yes or no. Hillary couldn’t. That ought to be a scandal all by itself.

Let’s note what Hillary does not do, as revealed in Wednesday’s hearings. She does not read email. She does not read cables. She does not monitor terrorist attacks on our embassies in real time. She does not accurately characterize terrorist attacks on our embassies after the fact. When pressed on that last part, she screeches “What difference at this point does it make?”

It makes all the difference in the world.

Just don’t expect the juicebox mafia at Soros-funded Think Progress to have any idea why.
