A defining, e-book length New York Times article on the Benghazi attack is filled with misleading information, including details negated by the U.S. government, Benghazi victims and numerous other previous news reports, a just-released book exposes.

The Dec. 28, 2013, New York Times piece by David D. Kirkpatrick was cited by White House officials and Hillary Clinton as confirming central aspects of the Obama administration’s claims about the Benghazi attack.

However, in his new book, “The REAL Benghazi Story: What the White House and Hillary don’t want you to know,” reporter, radio host and New York Times bestselling author Aaron Klein demonstrates Kirkpatrick’s piece is contradicted not only by the State Department and Benghazi witnesses but by Kirkpatrick’s own previous reporting.

In her memoir “Hard Choices,” Clinton relies on Kirkpatrick’s article, “A Deadly Mix in Benghazi,” to claim an obscure anti-Muhammad video was “indeed a factor” in what happened in Benghazi.

“There were scores of attackers that night, almost certainly with differing motives,” she continues. “It is inaccurate to state that every single one of them was influenced by this hateful video. It is equally inaccurate to state that none of them were. Both assertions defy not only the evidence but logic as well.”
