A GOP member of the House Intelligence Committee alleged Monday that The New York Times published a story about the Benghazi, Libya, attack in order to advance former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s possible White House bid

Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-Ga.) described the newspaper report as “totally unsatisfactory and completely false” after it turned up no evidence that al Qaeda, or other “international terrorist groups,” was involved in the attack last year that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

Westmoreland said the Times could be trying to help lay the groundwork for a potential Clinton presidential run in 2016. Clinton led the State Department during the attack.

“The reports by the New York Times was — I don’t know why they put it out unless it was for political reasons, but we thoroughly dispute that story as far as the link to al Qaeda,” he said Monday on Fox News.

Of course Secretary Clinton was in charge at the time, and you know there are just now a lot of rumors going and pushing about her running for president in 2016,” he said. “So I think they are already laying the groundwork.”
