And now Joscelyn has posted a rebuttal, "The New York Times Whitewashes Benghazi."
Basically, the Times report omits key actors who had links to the international al-Qaeda franchise. Or, as Joscelyn puts it:
In his Times piece and during an appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press, [the Times' David] Kirkpatrick claims that the Benghazi attackers were purely “local” actors.There's more push-back at Memeorandum. I expect we'll be talking about this for some time, and perhaps the New York Times will eventually disown its own reporting.
This is simply not true – as evidenced by the Jamal network’s involvement and other pieces of evidence.
