Former Obama NSC spokesman on Benghazi: “Dude, this was like, two years ago.”

Apparently, investigations into White House officials deliberately lying to the American people about the nature of a terrorist attack that resulted in the deaths of four Americans do have a shelf life — and Democrats, their strategists, and their spokesmen would like you to know that that time has long since passed. Via the WFB:
Former National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor addressed Fox News host Bret Baier as “dude” and said he could hardly remember how he helped change the Benghazi talking points because it was “two years ago.” …
Baier pressed Vietor on his role in changing the talking points by adding a line about the administration warning the day before the attacks of “social media reports calling for demonstrations,” in order to bolster the false idea that the attack was the spontaneous result of a riot against the video. Vietor affirmed this, but when Baier asked him if he’d changed “attacks” to “demonstrations,” he got amnesia.
“Dude, this was like two years ago,” Vietor said. “We’re still talking about the most mundane process.”
Judging by the gentleman’s Tweet prior to the show, this wasn’t exactly a spontaneous outburst. #ThrowbackThursday, ya’ll!

I might also point out that the attack was actually only 20 months ago, but hey, maybe that’s just me nitpicking — and of course, for Hillary “What Difference, At This Point, Does It Make?” Clinton, that shelf life was a mere four months after the attack, so whatever, right?
